Admitted into not ‘Checked’ into – 

Dec. 21, 2020 – The former Saturday Night Live writer, 38, is seeking treatment after relapsing following a decades-long battle with addiction.

Mulaney’s rep did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. The New York Post’s Page Six was the first to report the news.

The comedian, who previously said he started drinking at the age of 13 before later abusing drugs, has been open about his struggles with sobriety.

“I drank for attention,” he told Esquire in 2019. “I was really outgoing, and then at 12, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again.”

While he said he never enjoyed smoking marijuana, he “loved” cocaine and other prescription drugs.
