The former child star who played Eddie Munster on the 1960's TV sitcom The Munsters has gone into rehab for drug and alcohol treatment.

Butch Patrick, 57, is in a private facility in New Jersey, say reports. His agent, Jodi Ritzen, said Patrick took the step "to deal with a lifetime problem of substance abuse."

Reports also say that Patrick had moved to Philadelphia when a female fan had contacted him, but last week the woman announced that they had broken up.
