"I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people," the actor, 45, says in a statement released by his rep Wednesday.
"I want to say, 'Thank-you' to my fellow cast members, the crew of Two and a Half Men, and everyone at CBS and Warner Bros … for their concern and support." He singled out his bosses, CBS chief Les Moonves and Bruce Rosenblum, president of Warner Bros. Television Group.
Like Errol Flynn, who had to put down his sword on occasion, I just want to say, 'Thank-you,' " says Sheen. "And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much."
The troubled actor began a personalized treatment program over the weekend after partying and a trip to the hospital with abdominal pain. His show is currently on hiatus.
