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."

I hope he gets it together. I'm still sad about Cory Monteith and would hate to see him go the same route.

Do a show where you play a high school student who sings, end up on drugs. Coincidence?

Denying (and hiding) that you are gay can cause young people to lose control when they start numbing the pain.

Bet the # of celebrities *not* addicted to drugs is less than the amount that are.

Hmmm, even I'm surprised. I would have guessed he was in for a big GAY problem. I don't know: can you go to rehab for a "lack of talent" problem?

figured that even he would fall under the former disney star curse sooner or later. at least zac got smart enough to seek help for his addiction before it got real bad.

At least he got help.I'm not a big fan(didn't grow up in love w/him like tons of young girls)but why do people say he is gay?Is it because he is so good looking and people are jealous?He is w/women all the time.He has a huge gay following and if he was gay I'm sure he would come out w/the truth.

Well, I'm not surprised considering that a lot of the hollywood celebrities are cokeheads. Everyone knows about those hollywood parties fueled by alcohol and cocaine for all!

I have issue with TMZ (and other publications) posting this article. Zach Efron have never been in legal trouble that would highlight these issues (like Lindsey Lohen), so it should be up to him is he wants to publicize if he went to rehab and what he went in for. These publications should respect his privacy...and let him decide if this is something he wants to share with the world instead of quoting "sources".

He's either doing coke because he's not cute anymore, OR, he's not cute anymore because he's doing coke.
