Jennifer Garner hit the beach with a bunch of girls as Ben Affleck admitted that he completed treatment for his “alcohol addiction." Click through the gallery to find out what Affleck’s mother-in-law had to say about his treatment while his wife got away from it all.
Garner, 44, wore a short black bikini cover-up on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on March 13, 2017, where she headed for a vacation with her friends while Affleck, 44, announced that he had “completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront.”
Affleck said that he was “lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do."
Her mom, Patricia Garner told Radar exclusively: “What I say to Ben is between Ben and me. And I’m not making any public statements of encouragement.”
Patricia would offer no other comments about Affleck, sounding exasperated when asked who was taking care of the couple’s three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel while mom vacationed and dad received treatment.
A contrite Affleck announced why he decided to seek help for his problem, saying, “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be,” he said.
Garner spent the day at the beach while her husband wrote about his courageous decision on Facebook, writing, “I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it.”
The Oscar winner also said that he wanted to encourage other to seek treatment if they needed, saying he hoped “to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”
Affleck admitted that he was ready for a lifetime of recovery, saying, “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
