Los Angeles: Just days after news of his recent stint in the rehab became public, actor Gerard Butler has returned to Hollywood`s party circuit. The actor recently completed a three-week programme at California`s Betty Ford Center for a prescription drug issue, but he wasn`t about to avoid the pre-Oscars celebrations completely.

He showed up solo at The Weinstein Company`s SoHo House bash in West Hollywood, reports a website.

Last week, a representative for Butler confirmed reports that the actor had sought help in rehab for substance abuse.
