Find out why he took up cocaine...
TMZ reports that Zac Efron has not only stayed in rehab once, but he's had two stays for cocaine addiction after a major relapse. Efron has been using the drug for over two years, and was also a user of "Molly". He tried to get clean in March by seeking professional help. He left California and stayed in a private residence to get outpatient treatment for several weeks.
In April, he returned to Los Angeles and began shooting Seth Rogen's movie Neighbors. During the shoot he relapsed. He was frequently absent from the set and most people knew he was using the drug again. After the film wrapped, he went back to rehab for a second time.
There are said to be four major reasons why he started the drug in the first place. Efron is said to have issues with his parents, who are trying to control his life and decision making. He is also upset that his movie career hasn't taken off after his popularity with the High School Musical films.
Another reason is that he has relationship issues, but it has nothing to do with breaking up with Vanessa Hudgens, which is said to be "ancient history" for both. Finally, he spent time with "a bad group of friends" who introduced him to the drug. He has removed most of them from his life in the last few months.
