'Buffy' star Nicholas Brendon in a Malibu rehab, taking sober acting class
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star Nicholas Brendon has checked into rehab.
Brendon reportedly blames alcohol and a sleeping pill for his March 17 arrest, when he got into a fight with cops and got himself seriously tased and booked.
"I was in treatment in 2005 and unfortunately I had a relapse. In the back of my mind, I always knew I had a problem but it became clear to me when I got arrested," he says, according to Radaronline.
The actor was charged with felony vandalism and released on $20,000 bail. Then he checked himself in the SOBA Recovery Center in Malibu. He says he feels grateful for this second chance and some much needed financial advice.
"I'm feeling lucky because alcoholism effected [sic] my money management decisions and they are helping me," he says. Another upside? Sober acting classes. Seems the rehab also offers "acting classes that focus on recovery."
Bet they also have manicures, pedicures and massages.
At least he doesn't need sex addiction therapy, like his former "Buffy" costar David Boreanaz, may. But if he does, we bet they offer that too.
