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.

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

I admit Jersey Shore is my guilty pleasure....don't judge.When I first tried to watch the show to see what the buzz was about I said to myself "I am far too intelligent for this show." but then got sucked in during a marathon a few months later.

I have suspected for quite some time that Mike had a cocaine and/or steroid problem.Sometime after the first or second season,Mike got pretty big,really fast and I notice his body was covered in pimples...eewww.The cocaine would explain his erratic behavior on the show and him missing scheduled engagements with other cast members.

Cocaine+steroids+alcohol= Mike's behavior in Italy and Seaside in 2011,loud,paranoid and aggressive.

Interesting how regular folk go to rehab to battle drug and alcohol addiction and "celebrities" go to rehab for "much needed rest and recuperation"...
