Zac Efron was actually in rehab twice this year?

Zac Efron

Remember how the other day everyone found out that Zac Efron secretly went to rehab in order to beat his cocaine addiction issues? Well, it’s slightly worse than we thought: Turns out, he made two trips this year alone, and a lot of it has to do with his perceived career disappointments. Via TMZ

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Zac has been doing cocaine for more than two years — he was also into Molly. He tried to clean himself up in March by getting professional help. We’re told he left California and stayed in a private residence where he received intensive outpatient care for several weeks.

  • Zac has significant issues with his parents, who are still trying to control his life and decision-making.
  • Zac is upset about his movie career, which was once white hot but after High School Musical he hasn’t had real success.
  • Zac has “girl issues” … although we’re told it has nothing to do with his break-up with Vanessa Hudgens. That, our sources say, is ancient history for both.
  • Zac had been hanging around with “a bad group of friends” who introduced him to the world of cocaine. We’re told Zac has 86′d most of them from his life in the last few months.

Well, good for Zac for understanding he has a problem, getting to the root of it, and doing what he needed to do get better. The guy apparently has some issues, but at least he understands what he needs to do to get better and he’s handling it privately and quietly.
