The Daily Mail is reporting that one of Ireland's most famous actors has reentered rehab after fearing that "he could break" the great recovery that he has had so far. 

According to the publication, Colin Farrell checked himself into a luxury rehab facility in Arizona in order to maintain the clean life that he has led for over a decade now. 

The facility costs just under €30,000 a month and according to reports, Farrell has felt urges to return to narcotics after filming three movies in a row and wanted to get help before he fell off the wagon.

Sources have said that Colin did not relapse but rather that this decision is a preventative measure. 

“He decided to pre-emptavely check himself in before it went to a bad place. He didn’t want to go down that rabbit hole again.

“He’s so hyper aware that he’s an addict that he felt that he could very easily start using again.

The Irish man put a stop to his drug and alcohol abuse in 2006.
