Burt Reynolds Prefers An Altered State

Burt Reynolds is seeking treatment in a rehab center for an alleged addiction to painkillers and alcohol, after an accident at his home in Florida last month sparked fears of his mental state.

According to the National Enquirer (ahem), Burt Reynolds, 73, was admitted to hospital on 21 August (09) after he was found semi-conscious and covered in blood following a fall at his waterfront mansion in Hobe Sound.

"The houseman found Burt lying in a pool of blood. He'd fallen and was badly cut. The houseman drove him to the hospital. But this time, Burt was behaving strangely, and doctors were so concerned about his state of mind that they sent him to the county mental health facility in West Palm Beach."

Reynolds agreed to check straight into rehab after medics refused to discharge him unless he sought professional help for his alleged addictions at the nearby Hanley Center.

"He's been increasingly abusing booze and prescription drugs, mainly painkillers. There have been many times recently when he's been completely out of it, and twice in the last few months he's ended up at the ER (emergency room)....Burt wasn't happy about it, but he checked in, went through detox and then joined a regular 30-day rehab program."
