Matthew Perry, who has struggled with prescription pills and alcohol in the past, is going back to a treatment facility as part of his ongoing recovery.

The Friends star, 41, confirms the move in a statement that ends with a Chandler Bing-style dry quip.

"I'm making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery," he says. "Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web.”

Perry, who most recently appeared in Mr. Sunshine on ABC, was in rehab twice in 2001 and 1997.



A source tells PEOPLE, "There was no relapse," and that the actor plans to enter the facility shortly.
