RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. -- Actor Gregory Harrison, who played Dr. Gonzo Gates on CBS's canceled television series, 'Trapper John, M.D.,' checked out of the Betty Ford Center Wednesday after undergoing treatment for an undisclosed chemical dependency, his manager said Wednesday.
Harrison, 37, who stars in the recently released surfing feature 'North Shore,' was admitted into the center four weeks ago.
The actor's manager and business partner, Franklin Levy, said Harrison successfully completed the program Wednesday, but declined to say whether the problem was drug- or alcohol-related.
'If Gregory wants to say more about it now that he's home, it's up to him,' Levy said.
'Trapper John, M.D.,' a medical drama that was a spinoff, of sorts, from the popular comedy 'MASH' and starred Pernell Roberts, ran for seven seasons before it was went off the air in 1986.
