"The Situation" is in rehab for substance abuse ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ the "Jersey Shore" star -- aka Mike Sorrentino -- has checked into an inpatient treatment program. 

A rep for the Situation just contacted TMZ to say they are not confirming that Mike is in rehab ... just that he "has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule."

Like most of the 'JS' crew ... Sorrentino's been on a non-stop party train since the show debuted on MTV 2 years ago -- drinking and making paid appearances at nightclubs all over the world.

Sitch makes anywhere from 15K ... up to a whopping 50k per nightclub appearance.

MTV just announced "Jersey Shore" is returning for a 6th season ... which is scheduled to start shooting this summer.

1:10 PM PT -- The Situation is currently undergoing treatment for prescription pills at the famous Cirque Lodge in Utah.

No Surprise here. His boyfriend "THE UNIT" ( yes I said boyfriend ) was arrested with K and other narcotics. Everyone said that one of the cast members was doing blow all the time. This answers a LOT of questions. He is the biggest Dbag anyway.

Snooki was getting too much attention and this dweeb wasn't getting any! Watch him come forward for a paternity test when the baby is born, just for more attention!

imagine my surprise. he'll never get and stay sober, cuz he'll NEVER let go of the "life" he lives. too many lies,, too much BS. IMO he'll never get honest enough to get serious. A 3 week "dry out" at some celebrity "rehab" center is NOT sobriety.

If you wanted to quit watching JS, for some reason, you couldn't, now is your chance.

Nobody told this fool he had to drink until the last drop was gone when he's on tour. He could also drink, soda or water.
