 John Mulaney, stand-up comedian and writer who has been open about past struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, has reportedly checked into rehab.

Page Six first reported the news on Monday, with People and Vulture later confirming. USA TODAY has reached out to Mulaney’s reps for comment and further details.

In the hours following the reports, several comedians took to Twitter to wish the former “Saturday Night Live” writer well on his recovery.

“.@mulaney is insanely talented, and was way nicer to me than he needed to be when he did @TheSimpsons,” wrote “The Simpsons” writer and producer Tim Long. “I hope he & everyone who’s struggling these days get the help they need.”

“Never, ever be ashamed of being brave enough to ask for help,” wrote “Mom” star Kristen Johnston.

Patton Oswalt of “The Goldbergs” and “A.P. Bio” tweeted Mulaney’s Twitter handle amid a flurry of heart emojis, while “Better Call Saul” star Michael McKean simply wrote, “Love to @mulaney.”

“The only jokes I want to hear about @mulaney in rehab are the jokes he tells about it after he gets out,” wrote “Disenchantment” star John DiMaggio.

According to Mulaney’s 2019 profile in Esquire, he starting drinking alcohol at 13.

“I drank for attention,” he told the magazine. “I was really outgoing, and then at twelve, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again.”

Mulaney also opened up about using drugs.
