Gerard Butler has checked into the Betty Ford Center to seek treatment for substance abuse. 

EXCLUSIVE: Gerard Butler Is Addicted To Sex

His drug problem began when the physical demands of shooting 300 in 2006 forced him to start taking pain medicine. Then Gerard suffered a surfing accident in December, which left him injured while filming Of Men and Mavericks.

TMZ reports Butler also has issues with cocaine:

We’re told Butler realized he was relying too much on prescription drugs and decided to head off a full-blown addiction by entering Betty Ford 3 weeks ago.

Sources tell TMZ … Butler also developed issues with cocaine, but the root problem appears to be the injuries and pain management.

Butler will be leaving Betty Ford sometime today.
