Philip Seymour Hoffman has finished a quick stint in rehab for escalating narcotics abuse that apparently involved snorting heroin.
TMZ has the details in an article that appears to have been written with the Oscar winning actor’s participation, although no direct quotes are used. According to TMZ, Hoffman was 23 years sober when he fell off the wagon about a year ago. The drug abuse then started with prescription pills and eventually moved on to a week of heroin use, at which point Hoffman sought help in rehab.
Hoffman’s 10 days in rehab ended last Friday (May 24) and he is now back at work filming a movie in Europe.
Hoffman won an Oscar in 2006 for “Capote” and has been nominated three more times: for “Doubt,” “Charlie Wilson’s War” and this year for “The Master.” He will next be seen in November’s much-anticipated sequel “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
