Now, addiction isn't new to Mulaney.

"I drank for attention."
By the age of twenty-three, Mulaney got sober.
But in more recent times, things have gone downhill for Mulaney.
via: Getty2020 has been an unbelievably hard year for all of us, and it seems that the strains of the pandemic got the better of the actor as he started drinking alcohol and using drugs again.
And it has since been confirmed that Mulaney has checked into rehab.Vulture has reported that he is currently in a rehab facility in Pennsylvania to seek treatment for his problems.
This is clearly what the comedian needs.Page Six, "John’s friends and family are happy that he’s finally getting some help and focusing on his health."
They went on:
via: Getty“His fans know he’s struggled in the past with sobriety, he has talked about it openly. Unfortunately, he has struggled again during the pandemic. He’s on board with his recovery and he’s not fighting against rehab."
We wish Mulaney a quick and healthy recovery!
