Kit Harington reportedly takes pride in his decision to check himself into rehab, where he is seeking treatment for stress and alcohol issues.
The Game of Thrones actor checked himself into the luxury wellness retreat Prive-Swiss in Connecticut almost a month ago, after reportedly turning to alcohol following the end of the hit HBO show which propelled his career.
According to a source, Kit, 32, has nothing but pride for his decision to seek professional help and hopes that his move could encourage others who are also battling personal issues.
The insider told Page Six: If seeing Kit get help can help anyone struggling, thats fantastic. Theres no shame at all to this.
Its said that Kit was hit really hard by the end of Game of Thrones wrapping up last week after eight seasons.
Kits wife, Rose Leslie whom he met on the fantasy series, is said to be extremely supportive of the actor and is expected to reunite with him soon as she allegedly remains in the UK.

The Prive-Swiss Wellness Retreat costs $120,000 (£94,200) for a month-long stay and offers psychological coaching, cognitive behavioral therapy and meditation.
