Brad Pitt: Details of "Intense" Rehab Revealed

by at .

Last week, Brad Pitt revealed that he's quit drinking in the wake of his very public split from Angelina Jolie.

In a candid interview with GQ, Pitt went into great detail about his drinking and drugging, admitting that he hadn't experienced a full day of sobriety in over 30 years.

"I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something," Pitt told the men's mag.

He went on to admit that his preferred substances had served as a sort of emotional crutch, adding:

"You realize that a lot of it is, um — cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I’m running from feelings."

But while he was open about the extent of his partying, Pitt didn't have much to say about his method for getting sober.

Now, Page Six is reporting that Pitt sought treatment at a high-end facility in Hollywood that focuses on “'intense' group and one-on-one programs to aid with recovery from dependency."

“He has used this time for a lot of self-reflection, self-improvement,” says one source.

Insiders refused to reveal the name or location of the facility for obvious reasons, but apparently, the specialists who treated Brad focus on a particularly intensive form of therapy that continues well after one's stay at the facility has come to an end.

Pitt revealed to GQ that he still sees a therapist on a regular basis and is in the process of coming to terms with some difficult truths about himself.

“Sitting with those horrible feelings, and needing to understand them, and putting them into place,” said Pitt, who adds in the article that he is now in therapy.

“In the end, you find: I am those things I don’t like. That is a part of me. I can’t deny that. I have to accept that. And in fact, I have to embrace that. I need to face that and take care of that.”

Sources close to the actor say Pitt has lost weight and seems to be more in control since leaving rehab.

He's also said to be working on a slew of new projects.

We wish him all the best with his continued recovery.
