After driving her estranged husband, Ben Affleck, to rehab on Wednesday, the actress is "relieved" that the father of her three children -- Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6 -- is "in a safe place," a source tells ET.
"This has been a rough few days and [Jennifer] wants nothing more than to feel [Ben] is getting the help that he needs," the source says, adding that Garner has "been Ben's rock" throughout this process. "She is used to putting on a brave face, and handling Ben's addiction, but the process has been very exhausting for her. She won't give up on Ben because he is the father of her kids."
"Ben trusts Jen entirely and followed Jen's instructions," the source says. "This time he sounded willing and ready on all counts. Friends who saw Ben's rapid decline are breathing a huge sigh of relief. They have high hopes for a recovery."
