Jon Hamm Completes Rehab For Alcohol Addiction

by at .

Jon Hamm completed a 30-day treatment program for alcohol addiction this week. His publicist issued a statement today saying that the actor voluntarily checked into Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut at the end of February. 

Hamm, of course, rose to fame portraying alcoholic ad man Don Draper on the acclaimed AMC drama Mad Men.

The show begins its final half-season on April 5, and Hamm completed rehab just in time to attend a series of premiere events.

The final episodes of Mad Men have already been filmed, so there's no risk of Hamm being triggered by his character's boozy ways.

Rumors of the 44-year-old's binge drinking began circulating back in January after Hamm appeared to be drunk at a Golden Globes after-party.

The statement from Hamm's reps credits the support of his girlfriend, filmmaker Jennifer Westfeldt, with giving him the strength to get sober:

"With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward."

On a lighter note, anyone think Draper will follow in Jon's footsteps and finally put the plug in the jug this season? Yeah, we didn't think so.

If you still need to get caught up in time for the finale, or if you blacked out at any point during the previous 6 1/2 seasons, watch Mad Men online at TV Fanatic.
