"She wants to see him healthy and at his best. She knows that's what's best for the kids and the family," and insider told E! News. After all, Garner and Affleck were married for 10 years and share three children together.

 

Thankfully, it seems like Affleck has a great support system around him. Another insider added, "Jennifer is an amazing supporter, but one of many."

Unfortunately, Affleck's road to sobriety hasn't been easy. He recently addressed alcohol addiction in March, when he announced that he had gone back to rehab for the second time. "I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I've dealt with in the past and will continue to confront," Affleck said in a statement at the time, according to E! News.

He also credited Garner for her role in helping him with his sobriety and thank her for being a great mom to their kids, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 3. He said, "[Garner] supported me and cared for our kids as I've done the work I set out to do."
