Trace Adkins has reportedly stepped away from treatment in a Florida rehabilitation facility to be with his ailing father, Aaron. Sources say he needed to be at his dad’s side, but it’s not clear if the illness is life-threatening.

TMZ reports that Adkins will decide if he needs to return to the inpatient facility after the situation resolves itself. It’s possible he could choose outpatient therapy instead. The celebrity news site also says that the singer asked to be put in contact with counselors near his father.

Adkins entered rehab to treat alcoholism earlier this month after a heated verbal exchange with an impersonator while onboard a country music-themed cruise ship. He was the week's headliner, but left the boat after just one night. A release from his representatives confirmed he'd had a set back in his battle, taking his first drink in over a decade.
