Chase's publicist Heidi Schaeffer said he is at Hazelden Addiction Treatment Centre in Minnesota for what she called a "tune-up" in his recovery.

Chase has had struggles with substances during his career. He checked into the Betty Ford Clinic in the 1980s for treatment for an addiction to prescription painkillers.

The 72-year-old former star of Saturday Night Live and the Vacation movies was recently a regular on TV's Community show from 2009 to 2014. He has a pair of films coming up, The Christmas Apprentice and Dog Years.
