According to U.K. paper The Sun, paramedics found 33-year-old Meyers "slumped on the floor" ... but he refused treatment for 30 minutes before cops arrived and convinced the actor to go to the hospital.

Officials confirm that officers were dispatched to Meyers' home -- but would NOT say if Meyers was trying to take his own life.

Meyers -- who has been in and out of rehab FIVE times -- was released from the hospital early Wednesday morning.

UPDATE: A source close to Meyers tells TMZ, the actor was NOT trying to kill himself, but had fallen off the wagon.

He is such a great guy I am sure. He needs to get away from his girlfriend Reena Hammer who seems to be the root of his problem. She degrades him and is not good for him. He wont heal until he lets go.

john Meyers beautiful oh you can accept my help? I am not better than you or anyone else and I have my problems and ghosts but every time I hear from you ... I need someone to love me, care and respect and offer you my heart because that is what we now give you, that's all I need now, that's all without realizing that maybe could you give me. although they say the "professionals" if you can not take care of you can not take care of everybody else. I believe that together we could achieve something. I do not drink and use drugs but I have my "stuff" and maybe the two can help. I am a simple person looking for love because that's all it takes to survive. Hopefully, one day you read this. hopefully anyone or anything stop you seek and find. Otherwise you just wish you well and you find the way out of your darkness and lived a wonderful life to old age. are great

jonathan rhys meyer is a talented actor and musician who is begging for help with his actions. He is a great tribute to my world and others and I just wish someone could help but no one can untill he lets them. Jonathan keep trying to be sober i and others believe in you and always know that someone out there cares for you.
