Robin Williams Enters Rehab

One never knows when the demon will overtake you - 20 years sober and he drank. What a nightmare. I feel for you Robin. I know what this feels like - drinking after a long term of sobriety. My prayers and my heart goes out to you. Stay strong and remember you are in my prayers. This is why Constant Vigilance is necessary when one is trying to stay sober. It only takes one moment of weakness and the right conditions and I am one step away from a drink.

He asks that you respect his and his family's privacy during this time. He looks forward to returning to work this fall to support his upcoming film releases."

No further details are available at this time.
