Just two days after leaving rehab at the Betty Ford Center, a refreshed and healthier looking Gerard Butler hit up the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in L.A. on Sunday.

Butler spent three weeks in treatment after realizing he was relying too heavily on prescription medication.

TMZ broke the story ... Butler began using pain meds to deal with the pain caused by the intense physical training regimen to get in shape for "300" ... and the problem became exacerbated after he injured himself in a surfing accident while filming "Of Men and Mavericks" back in December.

Good luck to you ,I had the same problem . I broke my back years ago and the pills were the only thing that I could take to make it through the day , it's not a problem. You just need to get the it fixed so you can get off the pills. Just bc someone takes pills every day don't mean they have a problem. If someone has a heart problem and needs meds to feel better do they have a problem with pills or do they just need them? Why are they looked at diff.?

Gerard Butler is so hot....I'm glad he took control of his life before things got out of hand. It would of been sad to see his train wreck.

He needs to realize that rehab is not a career move, it's a way to recover, maybe even save, your life.

Wow, he actually combed his hair for the occasion. Next time try a shampoo and shave, sport.

Gerard Butler has been sober for 13 years already. His problem wasn't unlike other crazy celebrities. He got injury badly in Dec.

I'm sick and tired of these overpriced and overpampered celebutards using rehab as a merry go round. Three weeks? Jack****e gets solved in in that amount of time. How convenient he springs out at Oscars. Guaranteed, he'll be back on the meds as soon as all the attention dies down.
