Just a week after telling us he was not drinking or using cocaine, actor Butch Patrick has entered a California rehab facility for a 40-year drug and alcohol addiction. Patrick, 57, who played Eddie Munster on "The Munsters," received a free scholarship to the Oasis Treatment Center in Orange County California, as Phawker reported.
Patrick, who spent several months living in West Chester, completed a five-day detox at the Maryville center in Williamstown, NJ, and subsequently relapsed and nearly overdosed, according to his agent Jodi Ritzen. Tony Guma, a friend of Patrick's and producer on his in-development reality show "Life's A Butch," got him into Oasis.
