Butch Patrick, who as a child star played Eddie Munster in the 1960s television sitcom "The Munsters," checked into a drug and alcohol treatment facility in New Jersey, it was reported Thursday.
According to the Associated Press, Patrick's agent, Jodi Ritzen, says Patrick is in rehab "to deal with a lifetime problem of substance abuse." Ritzen wouldn't disclose the name of the facility where he's being treated.
Patrick, at right holding a book he recently wrote, moved to the Philadelphia area earlier this year after being contacted by a West Chester woman who was a fan of "The Munsters" back in the 1960s. She announced last week that they had split.
