"He just really wants to get better," says a source close to the actor. "This has been an ongoing battle for him."
Rhys Meyers first entered rehab in April 2007. He was arrested that November for public intoxication at the Dublin airport and was detained by police in June 2009 at the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris after allegedly assaulting an airport lounge employee while drunk.
The actor's rep confirms to PEOPLE that he is again seeking treatment for his addiction, but declined further comment.
