John Mulaney is out of rehab and on the road to recovery. The comedian checked himself into rehab late last year and now, two months later, he is in outpatient sober care.

"John has completed 60 days in rehab and now he’s in outpatient sober care," a source told Page Six. "He is doing well, although he is still not ready to return to work."

Over the years, Mulaney has been open about his struggles with cocaine, prescription drugs, and alcohol. He first got clean at age 23 but relapsed earlier this year, a source previously revealed to Page Six.

"His fans know he’s struggled in the past with sobriety, he has talked about it openly," the insider said. "Unfortunately he has struggled again during the pandemic."

Speaking with Esquire in 2019, Mulaney traced his struggles back to age 13, when he started drinking. Alcohol abuse was what prompted him to experiment with illegal and prescription drugs. It was a 2005 bender that eventually pushed him to get sober.

"I went on a bender that weekend that was just, like, fading in and out of a movie. It was just crazy," he recalled.

"And I thought to myself, I don’t like this guy anymore. I’m not rooting for him," he continued.

Mulaney said he realized he was "out of control." He quit alcohol and weeks later he ditched the drugs. He did not enter a program but instead decided to do it himself by going cold turkey.
