LOS ANGELES, May 12 (UPI) -- Canadian-born actor Matthew Perry, who has battled an addiction to prescription drugs in the past, says he is taking a month to focus on his sobriety.

Perry, 41, has starred in the TV shows "Friends," "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and "Mr. Sunshine."

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

The celebrity news Web site said Perry has not suffered a relapse, but is planning this as a proactive measure.
