Zac Efron

Rehab For

Big Coke Problem

Zac Efron
did NOT go to rehab for alcohol abuse -- it was far more serious, because multiple sources tell TMZ he had a serious cocaine addiction.

Zac completed his stint in rehab earlier this year.  We're told the problem spiraled out of control during the filming of Seth Rogen's movie "Neighbors," which was shot during a narrow time frame beginning in April.

Sources tell us Zac -- who also starred in the movie -- was a no-show on a number of days.  As one source connected with the film tells us, "It was common knowledge he was struggling with cocaine."

Three other sources confirm ... Zac's problem was rooted in cocaine, but say he also dabbled in Molly -- a pure form of Ecstasy, and a popular drug in clubs and raves.

We're told ... early this year, Zac and some friends went on a coke rager in a room at the SkyLofts at the MGM Grand in Vegas ... and caused around $50k in damage. No word on who took care of the bill.

We contacted Zac's rep ... she said, "Don't think we'll be making a comment."

WOW...nice kid, all these drug issues with so many people whyy isn't Obama trying to tackle that instead of screwing up our healthcare system, making it harder for people to get loans due to strict regulations, extending unemployment so long that now a lot of those people are now unhirable because employers think they were picked over by other employers or just lazy and....taxing the hell out of EVERYTHING. When all of our bills have all these 7-8 LINES OF ALL DIFFERENT TAXES THAT IS AN ASSAULT ON EVERYONE NOT JUST THE RICH. And calling it surcharges or other names doesnt mean it isnt a tax, you underestimate the American people Mr. PRESIDENT, WE KNOW WHATS GOING ON.....

Nothing shocking about this. He was on some producers' yacht in St. Tropez with a bunch of party girls (hos). That's a coke-snorting paradise.

Such a shame. Childhood fame strikes again. Parents Beware: bringing your kids to auditions and what not, this is the future that would await your them if they got a role.

Coke is a devil drug... its hard to stop once you get going. Not that other drugs are easy to kick. If you have done coke, you get what im saying. I hope Zac can stay away from it

Wow ...    

Sadly drug abuse is rampant in our society, regardless of class, race or religious belief. I will merely applaud him for getting the help needed to change his future without a court order. Others ought to follow suit...I'm looking at you Miley.
