The Situation

"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.

So, Mike will supposedly be sober... as will Snooki because she's pregnant? Sounds like it's more about his (or MTV's) plans to push them together to continue the drama.

When are we not going to care about these disrespectful male and female tramps? It seems so ridiculous that he is paid $15-50 grand to walk in and party!! And we wonder why the USA is decreasing as a superpower. I bet the other countries laugh at us!! When they went out of the country to film JS, people from that country tried to stop it. Here as long as everyone gets their cut we let it continue. Sad to say but I bet he wont be the last from this group to see rehab. OK Im off my box, thanks for listening

He must've caught a glimpse of himself snorting lines off of some stranger's balls and said "woww, I have a problem...I'm really hitting rock bottom...I'm snorting lines".
