The famous comedian is taking time off after he has been working extremely hard on projects. Williams is taking the time to go to this specific rehab center to keep his own body healthy. His representative spoke about Williams’ decision to go to rehab.

"After working back-to-back projects, Robin is simply taking the opportunity to fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud," said Robin’s representative, according to TMZ.

There was one point in time that Williams expressed to Good Morning America his struggle with alcoholism and cocaine abuse during the early 1980s, reported ABC News. He quit both cold turkey and was clean for 20 years until he started drinking again and entered rehab in 2006. Since that point in time, he has pursued the goal to keep himself a sober man.
