Ben Affleck is on his way for another round of rehab, and it was his estranged wife, Jen Garner, that gave him the push he needed after recognizing the actor was close to rock bottom.

Sources close to Affleck tell The Blast he has agreed to enter a treatment facility near Los Angeles to address his ongoing issues with alcohol addiction.

We're told friends of Affleck grew extremely worried when he went on a recent 3-day bender, and after he was seen receiving a shipment of alcohol to his home in the middle of the day everyone knew it was time to take action.

Garner arrived at Affleck's Pacific Palisades home Wednesday afternoon, and shortly thereafter was seen driving away with him in the backseat of her Range Rover.

We're told Garner led the charge on getting Affleck help, and took it upon herself to plan his steps to recovery and confront him. Sources tell us he did not fight the accusations, and recognizes he needs the help.

Affleck has been to rehab twice before, both for alcohol. He also tried to keep up on his sobriety with outpatient programs.

The two stars are currently headed to check Affleck in at rehab, but we're told they made a quick pit-stop at Jack in the Box ... Ben's restaurant of choice lately.
