MANILA, Philippines – Actor Baron Geisler is still in rehabilitation for alcohol dependency even after already completing the recommended 3 months stay.

Geisler said the decision to stay longer in the facility is voluntary as he needs to learn more things inside.

Geisler explained that 3 months is not enough for him to learn things especially about himself.

The actor, however, admitted that he misses show business but he stressed that he will be back in the grind as soon as he finishes his 6 months stay in rehabilitation.

Geisler entered a rehabilitation facility in January after being accused of touching actress Cherry Pie Picache inappropriately while shooting a scene for ABS-CBN’s "Noah."

He was reportedly drunk when the incident occurred.

Although Geisler already apologized to Picache, ABS-CBN has decided to remove him from the series. -ANC
