Zac Efron went to rehab twice (not once), has friends worried about potential fatal relapse

Yesterday we learned that, five months ago, Zac Efron secretly entered and completed a stint in rehab for supposed cocaine addiction. 

Now, new reports are stating that Zac actually attended rehab not just once but twice. Following intensive outpatient care, Efron apparently relapsed and was forced to go back and start another program.

According to sources, Zac has been struggling with addiction for a number of years and his dependence was brought on by trouble with parents, girls and work. 

It's no surprise that Zac's friends are extremely worried about him and have even said they're scared that if he relapses, he might overdose in an incident similar to Cory Monteith's.

We have to say we certainly see where their fears are coming from and they are definitely legitimate worries to have.

But Zac's rep has said that the young actor is now healthy and happy and we really, really hope that's true. And if it's not, that he's able to seek help again or, at least, that those closest to him are able to recognize potential problems and force him to seek help.
