Prescription medication strikes again. According to The National Enquirer, Burt Reynolds has been in a rehab facility for a few weeks in an attempt to fight his addictions to prescription drugs and alcohol. Burt decided to go to rehab after an August 21st incident at his house in Florida where he was found semi-conscious and covered in blood after falling to the ground next to his pool.
A source said, "The houseman found Burt lying in a pool of blood. He'd fallen and was badly cut. The houseman drove him to the hospital. But this time, Burt was behaving strangely, and doctors were so concerned about his state of mind that they sent him to the county mental health facility in West Palm Beach."
Doctors wouldn't let Burt out of the hospital until he agreed to go into rehab.
The source then said, "He's been increasingly abusing booze and prescription drugs, mainly painkillers. There have been many times recently when he's been completely out of it, and twice in the last few months he's ended up at the ER (emergency room).
"...Burt wasn't happy about it, but he checked in, went through detox and then joined a regular 30-day rehab program." (The picture above is Burt at the rehab facility)
