Shia LaBeouf is being treated but not in rehab for alcohol problem

By Jorie Goins,

Earlier, we reported that Shia LaBeouf had entered rehab in Hollywood after several recent incidents including his arrest last week for disrupting a performance of Cabaret and receiving a lifetime ban from The Local Peasant, a restaurant in Sherman Oaks after leaving the restaurant and urinating on a wall.

However, according to The Los Angeles Times, LaBeouf is not receiving inpatient treatment although he is reportedly seeking help for his alcoholism. His rep said, "Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction."

LaBeouf’s rep went on to say, “He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery.”

TMZ reports that LaBeouf was photographed carrying an Alcoholics Anonymous book and there are speculations that he may have started a 12-step program.

LaBeouf has a July 24 court date in New York. During this time he will face two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of harassment in the second degree.
