Welcome to the Club: Wahler in Rehab

5/10/2007 4:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jason WahlerJason Wahler, one of the stars of MTV's "Laguna Beach," has checked into rehab, a family member tells People.

"Jason's in rehab, and he's getting help," the unidentified relative explained. "He's doing well, and he's going to be a new man."

Wahler, who was supposed to turn himself in to authorities last week to serve a 60-day sentence stemming from a 2006 assault case, had the sentence delayed in favor of rehab.

Maybe Paris should try the "rehab" defense?

It's about damn time. This train wreck needed some major help. Too bad he'll always be a loser though.

It might just be easier to list who isn't in rehab. These people use these facilities like Club Med and no serious change comes after they leave.

Hmmm. I have no idea who this guy is- never seen him before. And, quite frankly, I don't think he's a celebrity. What happened, tmz? Run out of Pritney (Paris and Britney) stories? Real gossip would be appreciated...

Finally exposed - shes a wierdo    

Here we go again. Another a**hole young celebrity gets caught doing something illegal, & is arraigned/sentenced; initially is very defiant & arrogant, then is told by his/her attorney/handler to make a public statement to apologize so as to sway public opinion. When that doesn't work, and they're facing jail time, all of a sudden they have to go to rehab. Amazing that they didn't think to go to rehab when they were not in trouble...

They oughta call this one the "rehab defense".

You are entitled to your opinions about alcoholism, choices and diseases, that is the great thing about America, we all have opinions and choices, some do suffer from diseases, its recoganized as a disease by the A.M.A., needs treatment, and we are responsible for our actions, no excuses at all, just facts.
I would hate to be so critical then fall victim to addiction and have so many people pick me apart, take my inventory and chastize me for wanting to get help and get better.

Wow, not one single positive comment here. Misery loves company, apparently. How sad. Give the guy a break. He's young, he screwed up a lot, yes, but now he's doing something about it. Why does everyone assign him such bad intentions? Yes, going to jail motivated him to do it but maybe that's what he needed and maybe his intentions to get clean are sincere, for goodness sake. Seems like a decent guy to me, when he isn't wasted. He obviously has had a problem for a very long time. I wish him well. I think he's going to have a great life after this.
