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."

Do you people know anything? You type words as you type cast people! When you look in the mirror in the morning, what do you see?. Who are you to judge mistakes of another without taking account of your own actions past or present.But no, I bet all of you are perfect. I dont know this man or have met him. But everyone has flaws,set backs, and mistakes and it's easy to focus our attention off our own lives, to distract ourselves to avoid our own downfalls. It's easy to blame and be under a blanket of facade. Than accept a reality we don't understand. My opinion thou.

I knew he didn't look right over this past year. His face looked so bloated. It is so true that drugs and alcohol ruin your health and your looks. This is living proof. What a shame.

Poor Zac, hope he can stop this addiction or it's a rumor. He's very humble, I met him one day years ago, he was nice enough to sign my friends jacket, very humble man. His eyes are gorgeous and he's REALLY hot!

Look at comments on this article, now look at the comments on Justin's article about him smoking weed. This is why the haters mainly guys since they're the ones 98% of the comments come from are called jealous. Now anyone with an IQ higher then Snooki knows I am right. Zac and Justin are both good guys to me though just need some help to get their life straight.

Hey mistakes happen, hope all turns out well for him. Love Zak, he's one of the good ones..maybe peer pressure, stress, who knows, but he's trying.

Celebrities are a pitiful bunch. Too much of everything and no brains. How can someone blessed with such beauty be so ridiculously stupid? I hope he gets the help he needs, but don't be surprised if he doesn't stay clean.

Most of the media is continuing to keep this under wraps. Could it be they received word to keep quiet because of an A-list personality (with a major film to be released) that might be exposed if anyone dug deep enough?

this is too bad but not unexpected from the a Disney Tween "star". Seems as if a few years in the Mouse House can reek havoc on the young....too much too fast - then tossed aside once puberty REALLY takes hold.
.
I know several Disney kids turned out OK but many don't. Like any corporation Disney is driven by profit (greed) and it's the kid stars who pay the price. Once their day in the sun is over, no one is there to protect them or guide them and many fall victim to darker/evil side of of the Machine called Hollywood.
