Ben Affleck has completed treatment for alcohol addiction.

The actor took to Facebook on Tuesday with a telling post about his treatment and how his family helped him turn things around.

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront,” he wrote. “I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m 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. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”

Affleck has remained close with his wife, Jennifer Garner, in the two years since they separated. It was recently rumored that the two might be getting back together, but sources close to the couple debunked those claims.

“They love each other,” a source said to PEOPLE. “They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
