Here's a short report on the Game of Thrones star checking into Wellness Retreat:

The star always shares with his fans that he admires his character a lot. He's always open about how the show's made an impact in his life and changed his life. He said that the hit series gave him his future family and wife, Rose Leslie whom he married in 2018.

His mental health took a turn when his character, Jon Snow was killed and fans became so anxious whether his character would return or not.

He stated that it was the time when he started taking therapy. Also, he described the time as the 'darkest period'.

Talking to Willie Geist on Sunday Today in April, he said,

"Thrones, it’s given me possibly my future family. It’s given me my wife, it’s given me friends for life. It’s got a character I love, I will love, more than any other character I’ll ever play."

"There isn’t a way of saying thank you to it enough. There never will be and I think that comes back to the question of, ‘How do you feel now that it’s finishing?’ Well, there aren’t words to describe how I feel about it."

As stated by Page Six, Harington spent last month in a rehab facility dealing with stress and alcohol management. During his time in the rehab, he is undergoing psychological coaching, cognitive behavioral therapy, and practicing meditation.
