Jon Hamm completes rehab

Jon Hamm has completed a 30-day stint in rehab for alcohol addiction.

The 'Mad Men' star reportedly checked into Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut at the end of February to undergo treatment.

A spokesperson for the 44-year-old actor confirmed the news to gossip website TMZ.com, saying: "With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward."

Jon previously admitted he battled depression after his father died when he was 20.

"You can change your brain chemistry enough to think: 'I want to get up in the morning; I don't want to sleep until four in the afternoon. I want to get up and ... go to work and ...' Reset the auto-meter, kick-start the engine!"
