A source said, “John’s friends and family are happy that he’s finally getting some help and focusing on his health.

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, he’s not fighting against rehab.”

In an interview last year, Mulaney revealed he began drinking at age 13.

“I drank for attention, was really outgoing, and then at 12, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again.” he said

He said in an Esquire cover story that his drinking also prompted him to start using drugs. John says that while he never liked smoking marijuana, he “loved” cocaine and dabbled with prescription drugs.

“I wasn’t a good athlete, so maybe it was some young male thing. Three Vicodin and tequila and I’m still standing,’” he said.

Mulaney first became sober at the age of 23 without the help of a treatment program.

He told Esquire, “I went on a bender that weekend that was just, like, fading in and out of a movie. It was just crazy I was like, ‘You’re f**king out of control. And I thought to myself, ‘I don’t like this guy anymore. I’m not rooting for him.’” he said.

John claimed he didn’t go to rehab, he just went cold turkey and was sober for many years after that.

Last month, John Mulaney joined the Late Night with Seth Meyers team as a staff writer and has made regular appearances on the show in the weeks since.
