Zac Efron is now six months clean and sober. The High School Musical actor was spotted wearing a blue AA sobriety chip commemorating the milestone while at a Lakers game over the weekend. Efron went to rehab this past April for an alleged cocaine and alcohol addiction, but has remained largely mum about his reported time in treatment.

TMZ quoted sources close to the star last October, who said Efron’s alleged cocaine addiction became a major problem on the set of his movie Neighbors. He was allegedly a “no-show on a number of days” and the cast knew “he was struggling with cocaine.” The gossip outlet also reported that “Zac and some friends went on a coke rager in a room at the SkyLofts at the MGM Grand in Vegas … and caused around $50,000 in damage. No word on who took care of the bill.” Efron may also have recreationally used Molly, a club drug otherwise known as a form of ecstasy.

The insiders also claim that Efron received treatment for his addiction twice this year, with the actor receiving intensive outpatient care at a private residence in California for several weeks after finishing shooting Neighbors. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters next year.
