Ben Affleck’s family is finally speaking out about his sobriety. Despite rumors to the contrary, Ben’s brother, Casey Affleck, assured fans that his treatment is going well and he is on track to a full recovery. The rehab news comes amid reports that Ben’s romance with playboy model Shauna Sexton is heating up.
Ben’s estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, drove him to rehab last month after he finally admitted he needed professional help. Although he is currently in rehab, Ben has returned to his house on several occasions, mostly to work on his physical fitness.

The public outings have led to speculation that Ben is not following his treatment plan, though Casey assured fans that everything is fine with the Justice League star.
“He’s doing great,” Casey shared. “He’s in rehab and he’s recovering and seems to be doing well.”
According to Metro, Ben checked himself into rehab late last month. It was the third time Ben had gone to rehab for his drinking addiction. This past week, Ben left rehab to workout with his personal trainer and get a haircut.
Between the working out and rehab program, inside sources say that Ben is doing better than ever and is healthier than he has been in a long time.
The source added that Ben has gone home every day since checking into rehab in August. The actor only spends a few hours at his home and is always joined by a personal therapist and trainer.

As far as Ben’s relationship with Sexton is concerned, it looks like the two are still together. This past weekend, the model visited Ben in rehab and even drove his car to the facility. The two have not commented on their romance, though Sexton assured fans that she is not being a bad influence.
As fans will recall, Sexton has a history of alcohol abuse and is not ashamed about it, which may not make her a good influence on Ben Affleck.
