Troubled David Arquette enters rehab centre

Monday January 3, 2011

It's been a tough couple of months for David Arquette since separating from his wife.

And now the actor has decided to seek help by entering a rehabilitation program, it has been confirmed.

While David's rep had "no further information", a source told People that he is battling an addiction to alcohol and other issues.

"He is in there for drinking and depression, not hard drugs. Rehab was inevitable," said the insider.

"He is dealing with a broken heart. He can't handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out."

Among the first to show their support? Estranged wife Courteney Cox.

"I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life," the Cougar Town star – who split from David in October – told People.

"I love and support him."

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, 39-year-old David said his psychologist believed he was having a "nervous breakdown" and confessed he had been "drinking a lot".

"Everybody's worried and concerned about me," admitted the dad-of-one.
