Oscar de la Hoya in rehab

Boxer Oscar de la Hoya has checked himself into a rehab facility, and in fact he has already been there for a few weeks, according to his reps.  The move has been seen as a precautionary measure, as de la Hoya was not yet completely out of control but didn’t want things to get to that point.

According to friends, alcohol and cocaine abuse had lead to some infidelity issues, and when it came down to choosing between drugs and his marriage, de la Hoya chose his marriage, and went into rehab.  He is expected to stay in the inpatient facility where he’s at for a minimum of several months, until he deals with all the issues he’s having resisting temptations of all kinds.
