    He spent the majority of last fall filming in the big waves—now Gerard Butler has done his best to clean himself up.

    The Scottish superstar has been quietly undergoing rehabilitation treatment at the Betty Ford Center for the last three weeks, and was released from the facility earlier today.

    As for the vice that resulted in his bravely seeking help in the first place?

    The star's rep didn't directly address reports that Butler checked himself into the celeb-friendly center to fend off an increasing dependence on prescription painkillers. Instead, his publicist would only confirm that he has finished his stint.

    "Gerard has completed a successful course of treatment and has returned home in good health," Rupert Fowler tells E! News.

    Last year, Butler had a headline-grabbing underwater scare on the set of Of Men and Mavericks that left him banged up.

    That actor has never been shy about discussing his sobriety issues in the past, notably his heavy drinking, which he has since given up.
