Matthew Perry's recent admission that he was kicked out of therapy has set off alarm bells with his former Friends costars, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
"He's had his issues with some of them through the years, but that was due to the way he was behaving during those dark party days," said an insider.
Now Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc "are all united in their fears over Matt, as well as their shared mission to get him back on track," revealed the source.
As Radar reported, on Feb. 6, Perry, 49, tweeted: "I got kicked out of therapy today."
The following day, Perry revealed he was back in therapy. Now, said the source, his friends are making certain he knows how much they truly care about his recovery.
"They're checking up on him and have all made it clear they're on hand for anything needed," said the insider, noting the group is "happy to pitch in for some top-quality rehab treatment if that's what it takes, plus a big personal loan to get him back on his feet."
In 1997, Perry experienced a brutal ski accident which left him in pain and addicted to painkillers. That year, he entered rehab, and though he was clean for some time, he re-entered treatment in 2001 and has been struggling with sobriety ever since.
