There were no tabloid incidents. No car crashes. No trashed rooms at the Chateau Marmont. But earlier this month, news broke that while we were all focused on Lindsay Lohan, Zac Efron, 25, had quietly headed to rehab — twice. His partying ways had reportedly gotten so out of control, a friend told Us Weekly that, “He realized he needed outside help. He reached out for it and is doing great now… He’s in a good place. He’s clean and he’s happy.” Zac was reportedly struggling with a serious drug problem that included cocaine and a form of Ecstasy called Molly. When he appeared at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month, however, you would never have known he had such a tough year behind him. Efron looked relaxed and comfortable while promoting Parkland, his latest film, and even impressed his co-stars. “The fact that he’s seeking help,” Marcia Gay Harden told People magazine, “Only says great things about him.”
Zac is not the first star to pick his career back up post-rehab. He can take inspiration from the following gallery of celebrities who got help and returned to the spotlight.
