Brad Pitt reportedly attended a VIP rehab facility to get sober following his split from Angelina Jolie, and it's worked wonders.

Sources told The New York Post Pitt's team urged him to get help at the Los Angeles center which caters for high-profile Hollywood figures.

According to sources, Pitt attended meetings and therapy sessions, joining "intense" group and one-on-one programs to get well.


Now, his family is in "a much better place" since he quit drinking.

The 53-year-old actor - who has children Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with his estranged wife Angelina Jolie - recently admitted during a candid interview that he attended counselling in order to battle his addictions, and it has now been claimed his family are better off because of it.

A source said: "He made decisions for himself. Pitt has worked very hard to get his kids back and the whole family is in a much better place."

The Allied actor previously revealed during his candid interview that his substance abuse had become a "problem" during the last year, but he's thankful he's now faced his issues head on.

He said: "I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something. And you realize that a lot of it is, um - cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I'm running from feelings.

"I'm really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know - things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem.

"And I'm really happy it's been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I've got my feelings in my fingertips again. I think that's part of the human challenge: You either deny them all of your life or you answer them and evolve."
