Eva Mendes' stay at a Utah rehab facility is allegedly due to an addiction to prescription drugs. The Hitch actress has been at the Cirque Lodge treatment centre for two weeks, but her reason for seeking help has remained a mystery. Now a Mendes insider has come forward and claimed that the actress is battling an addiction to prescription drugs, and entered rehab after suffering a spate of blackouts. It was suspected Mendes had entered rehab due to substance abuse issues, as Cirque Lodge specialises is this area of addiction. The source commented, 'This is not anything like a Lindsay or Britney situation. This is a terrific and talented woman who knows she has a problem and wants to fix it.' They added that Miss Mendes sought help to, 'get a handle on everything and put her life back on track.'
