EJNYC star Drew McNamara has entered rehab, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The reality star and BFF to Magic Johnson's son EJ entered treatment in Los Angeles on September 12, an insider told Radar.
"He is currently in detox," a source close to the cast told Radar, "for prescription drugs including Xanax, and alcohol addiction."
McNamara, aka Drew Mac, raised concern among fans with a series of cryptic tweets in the last week.
On September 9, the former Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star wrote, "If you can't take the heat, don't knock on the devil's door."
And September 10, he confessed, "Not really sure wtf is going on anymore."
Before that, he flaunted his alcohol use on social media:
Said the source, "He was battling prescription drugs and alcohol for awhile and towards the end of the show in NYC it showed." Indeed, on the final episode, Johnson asked his pal to go back to L.A. and get help.
According to the insider, McNamara's parents and co-stars helped him get into treatment at a luxe facility near Los Angeles over the weekend.
He wrote on September 12, "V thankful for the overwhelming support from everyone <3"
Said the insider, "He isnervous but happy to get the help he needs. He went willingly and excited to be back with a clear head to focus on his music.
"Drew called me Sunday letting me know he will be in the care of Promises Malibu for detox and then moved to Promises West LA after a week for the remainder of his 30 days of treatment," his rep, Jonathan Stinson told Radar when called for comment on the matter. "He checked in Tuesday nervous but happy to get the help he needs. Drew went willingly and is excited to focus on his music and upcoming album with a clear head post-treatment."
Johnson has yet to comment.
