Harvey Weinstein Returns to Treatment After Brief Trip to Los Angeles

Harvey Weinstein is back in treatment.
The disgraced mogul has returned to Arizona to continue seeking professional help after a short trip to Los Angeles, a source tells PEOPLE.
Weinstein was in California for a mandatory mediation meeting with The Weinstein Company, which he is suing after resigning from the board of directors in the wake of his sexual harassment and assault scandal.
Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles in early October.
A spokesperson for Weinstein previously told PEOPLE in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.

The producer checked into a luxury resort in Arizona for treatment on Oct. 11 to “deal with this issue head-on,” according to a statement.
“Harvey is still in Arizona and is taking treatment seriously,” a source close to the situation previously told PEOPLE. “He only gets time off for meals and meals are spent with his treatment sponsor. He is basically in 24/7 treatment.”
However, another source said, “He sees different doctors, but doesn’t go to a treatment facility every day,” adding that Weinstein has clashed with advisors over staying in Arizona: “Harvey wants to leave every day.”
