It’s been an up and down battle for Matthew Perry when it comes to handling his addictions, but he recently caused some concern after he tweeted that he was given the boot from therapy.
The Friends alum, 49, took to Twitter on Wednesday, February 6 to share a message that read, “I got kicked out of therapy today,” with all his fans and followers that had people wondering if all was well with the actor. Check out Matthew’s tweet below!
I got kicked out of therapy today.

Matthew’s tweet caused lots of confused people to send messages back to the actor. “You’re a brilliant, talented man and someday I believe you’ll see light in life. Addiction and depression will not rule you,” one person wrote, while another chimed in with, “I don’t know what is going on, but I hope you are alright and have people to support you.” One Twitter user said, “Remember, you are a strong person with lots of family, friends and fans that are here for you!”
The 17 Again star suffered a gastrointestinal perforation in 2017 that left him in bed for three months, and that’s on top of the alcohol and Vicodin addiction Matthew’s battled throughout his life. But fans don’t need to worry anymore, because the Golden Globe nominee returned to Twitter on Thursday, February 7 to share another message and help clear up some confusion.
Easy guys, it was just one session. I’m back in therapy where I belong:)

“Easy guys, it was just one session. I’m back in therapy where I belong,” he tweeted. It seems like Matthew’s health issues are one of the main reasons NBC hasn’t given the green light to a reboot of Friends, which wrapped up in 2004. While the program was still in its peak in 2000, the comedian was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis, which he confirmed to Us Weekly was partly caused by his alcohol abuse, so any hopes of a revival will seemingly have to wait until Matthew is completely well again.
We’re all pulling for Matthew as he continues on his journey back to good health — just don’t publish any more tweets that worry us, please!
