George Carlin Goes To Rehab
Carlin says that he is entering treatment now before things get out of hand. "My levels of use are nowhere near the worst you hear about these days; I could easily have continued functioning at a good level ... for awhile. But my use would have progressed, I would have been in deeper trouble, and I didn't want to tolerate that."
In the 80s, the 67-year-old comedian also battled cocaine addiction but reportedly quit on his own.
It is not known at press time how long
Carlin will be in rehab. He reported entered a treatment center on Monday.
He is scheduled to appear at the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas in February.
