According to a report in the New York Post's Page Six, following his high-profile split with Angelina Jolie, the "Allied" actor went to a "special VIP facility" to treatment. The place is in Los Angeles and is very discreet about its clientele.
Once in the meetings, Brad was involved in "intense" group and one-on-one meetings about his issues, a source told The Post. The secretive rehab was reportedly set up by a wealthy person who once got help for substance abuse and wanted to return the favor and help others who suffered from similar things.
"He has used this time for a lot of self-reflection, self-improvement," a source said.
In his far-ranging interview with GQ, Brad didn't mention rehab, but did speak openly about his use of alcohol and drugs — he also mentioned that he's seeing a therapist.
"I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or [smoked marijuana,] or something," he told the mag, adding that drugs and alcohol were "pacifiers" that allowed him to keep "running from feelings."
Once he and Angelina started a family, he gave up drugs, but kept drinking.
"But even this last year, you know —things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much," he said. "It's just become a problem."
When he revealed that he hadn't had a drink in six months, he said, "I've got my feelings in my fingertips again. I think that's part of the human challenge: You either deny them all of your life or you answer them and evolve."
