Did Zac Efron Spend Time in Rehab This Year?

Tabloids are running wild with the news that Zac Efron, known for his squeaky clean image, may have completed a stint in rehab earlier this year.

Rumors are swirling about the actor who recently walked the red carpet for his upcoming film, Parkland. According to People, Efron’s rehab stay is in the past and he’s moving on clean and sober.

Addiction rumors

Some sources say Efron fell into alcohol abuse while others link his behavior to a coke addiction. Still others claim that he got into Molly before taking a trip to rehab. His reps aren’t talking about the issue. Efron isn’t commenting directly on the rumors, either.

Efron’s role in the High School Musical series launched his career. For years he maintained an image not held by many other celebrities his age. The 25 year old stayed out of trouble with the law, avoided major online gossip and gained a reputation for professional, good-natured behavior.

According to NYdailynews, Efron’s cocaine habit got out of control while filming his upcoming film, Neighbors. Sources claim he didn’t show up for several days of work, noting that his drug habits were common knowledge to his peers on the set.

What’s next for Efron?

We don’t know the details of Efron’s drug and alcohol use — if they are true, we are glad that he found help. If there is some truth to claims that Efron was addicted to cocaine, we also commend him for keeping the situation private. This is the first we’ve heard connecting Efron to any drug use, and we’re glad to see him sober and on the trail for several film projects.

Efron found the help he needed. If you’re concerned about a friend or family member who may be forming addictive behaviors, contact Test Smartly Labs. Our drug and alcohol testing services are confidential and reliable.

    Another young actor who may have made a poor decision. What I’m sad about is that so many people focus on celebrities falling, that they may not see their loved ones heading down the same path.

    Very glad he found help. Its hard to know what is true or false in the celebrity world, rumors quickly turn into something totally opposite of the truth.

    It’s too bad this happened. It seems like there are fewer and fewer celebrities who can maintain a good image. A lot of that has to do with our social media and technology culture. Everything is documented. I feel sorry for any millenials who want to run for office some day.

    I don’t find any of this surprising at all. I think its just common place for young actors now days to get into drugs at some point. I’m just glad to hear he’s doing better now.

    I hope he is cleaned up and won’t be tempted to use again. It’s troubling to see what slides under the radar sometimes, but other times it might be one incident blown out of proportion. Nice story!

    Honestly, I can’t believe I’m commenting here because I told myself that I wouldn’t follow celebrity media…needless to say–I’m here. I hope Mr. Efron is cleared up and focused on a brighter future!

    Drugs are bad mkay. South Park even knows drugs are bad Zac! I hope he is cleaning his act up! Drug-free is the way to go!

    Another Hollywood star getting a little too wild, huh?! I hope he makes a swift recovery and avoids getting back into drugs!

    Hoping him the best of luck.

    I hate reading these stories, wishing him the best of luck.

    Hope he can recover if he did start to wander down that road.

    Who knew Zac Efron! He’s got some great PR if no one was aware of this until it was over.

    Hoping that he got this figured out, it’s scary to think he’s mixing coke and alcohol.

    Wouldn’t expect it from a guy who isn’t widely popular.

    I never heard that he was struggling with anything, this is truly shocking.

    Being a Hollywood star, I can’t imagine how hard it would be to stay away from the partying lifestyle that it seems many of these stars live. Glad he got help.

    Hope Zac can learn from his mistakes. He’s too young to throw it all away.
