Shia LaBeouf has voluntarily asked for outpatient care for his alcohol addiction, his spokeswoman, Melissa Kates, confirmed.
Last week LaBeouf was accused of disturbing a performance of the musical Cabaret inside New York’s Studio 54.
The actor was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after police said he used obscene language and became aggressive when he was asked to leave the venue.
Shia LaBeouf, 28, did not enter a plea to the New York charges when he was arraigned last week.
They are all misdemeanors or violations, so if convicted he would face little or no jail time.
“He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery,” said Melissa Kates.
Shia LaBeouf has previously starred alongside Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, as well as taking a leading role in Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise.
