Zac Efron went to rehab for cocaine addiction twice this year after a major relapse, reports TMZ. Zac has been doing cocaine for more than 2 years and was also into Miley’s drug of choice Molly. In March, he got professional help, he left California and stayed in a private residence where he received intensive outpatient care for several weeks like Demi Lovato.
In April he returned to LA and began shooting Seth Rogen’s film ‘Neighbors.’ During the shoot Zac relapsed, after filming he went back to outpatient care. Reasons for drug use: 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’, but it’s nothing to do with his break-up with Vanessa Hudgens. Zac had been hanging around with ‘a bad group of friends’ who introduced him to cocaine, but he has now dropped them.
Source told Radar Online: ‘Zac had been on a downward spiral since 2011, he was just good at hiding it and not getting caught. He was partying because he was unhappy and basically just didn’t give a f**k.’
When Rottman got the DUI Zac was in the car with him and he knew how lucky he was that he wasn’t driving at the time. He was super careful ever since. Friends are genuinely worried about him, because if Zac relapses like Cory Monteith did he’ll likely go back to using the same amount of drugs he was doing before rehab. And it will kill him.’
