Philip Seymour Hoffman
has been open about his substance abuse history. He was more than 20 years sober until about a year ago, when he began to use prescription pills and escalated to snorting heroin, he told TMZ.

Noticing his problem, the Academy Award-winning actor checked himself into an unnamed detox facility on the East Coast for 10 days. Last Friday, he left rehab and went back to Europe where he's filming a movie. He thanks his "great group of friends and family" for giving him support during his treatement. We only wish more celebs could be as self-aware as Hoffman.
