FILTER frontman Richard Patrick has posted a message on their official site revealing that his recent spell in rehab was "the best thing that has ever happened" to him. The message runs as follows:

"Hi, this is Richard again, I'm alive and kicking! Rehab was the best thing that ever happened to me, my mind is clear, my body is fit and I feel great. Thank you for all your love and support, I definitely felt it over the last 45 days. I can't tell you how great I feel. Rehab has made me rethink everything in my life. Now that I'm not wasting time on getting f**ked up, I'll be able to devote more energy toward creating my music. I'll tell you right now that I have big plans for FILTER and many other new musical projects that I have going on in my life. I'm so proud of this band and what we've accomplished, even when I was f**ked up, but now that I'm straight there's no telling what we can do. So I know this might sound like a cliché letter from rehab, but because I've never said it, it's not cliché to me. So thanks for being there and supporting me through this, I'll write again soon!

Love, Richie"
