Don Johnson is fighting drug and alcohol addictions at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

The actor checked into the dependency treatment center Friday and is expected to stay for up to a month, his publicist, Elliot Mintz, said.Johnson, who has attended Alcoholics Anonymous for 10 years, fought the problem for six weeks as an outpatient with a doctor, who prescribed drugs, Mintz said. But the treatment failed and Johnson became addicted to the drugs, he said.

Johnson, 44, and his wife Melanie Griffith, 36, have been separated for a month.

The Ford center is known for treating many celebrities, including Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli.
