Affleck's Dad Set To Be Downey JR's Saviour

BEN AFFLECK's reformed alcoholic father is set to be ROBERT DOWNEY JR's saviour.

The troubled actor faces a hearing on drug possession and a misdemeanour count of being under the influence of a controlled substance in Indio, California, on 29 January (01).

And if he avoids jail, Downey Jr is almost sure to be sentenced to a probationary period plus drug treatment in Indio - and that would be likely spent at the ABC RECOVERY CENTER, where TIM AFFLECK works.
