David Arquette enters rehab

Things certainly haven't been easy for David Arquette since his October split from wife of 11 years Courteney Cox. Now, his rep confirms to CNN, the actor has entered a live-in rehab facility over the weekend.

"Rehab was inevitable," an insider tells People magazine. "He is dealing with a broken heart. He can't handle all the changes in his life. All his inner demons came out."

In an interview with Howard Stern in December, Arquette said had been "drinking a lot" and that "everybody's worried and concerned about me."

Meanwhile, Cox, with whom Arquette has a 6-year-old daughter, Coco, commends her estranged husband for taking action.

"I really admire David and his choice to take charge and better his life," the 46-year-old "Cougar Town" star tells People. "I love and support him."

    people need to stop running to drugs like alcohol and weed and nicotine every time they get sad or bored. If he did his homework he would know that in the end alcohol only makes u more depressed. Plus look at all the people in his industry that have gone down due to alcohol etc. As part of recovery he should have to volunteer to help the lives of those who are really struggling with life and death issues etc. There is life after getting a divorce but u have to get off your butt and look for it.

    Well in this world we live in there is nothing permanent. if relationships does not work then we should accept that we are not meant for each other. So moved on wiith our lives and be happy and dont feel miserable. we need to grow up.
