Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has ended a 10-day visit in a drug detox facility on Friday after relapsing on heroin, reports TMZ.

The "Catching Fire" star told the website that he had an ongoing struggle with substance abuse that ended over 20 years ago, but recently fell off the wagon and started using again. What started with prescription pain pills led into snorting heroin.

Thankfully, with support from "a great group of friends and family," the Oscar winning actor seeked help by checking into detox.

Now out, and appearing to be doing well, he's ready to jump in front of the camera again.

We wish him all the best in his recovery.
