"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.

Past several weeks rest and recuperation? He was spotted driving his Ferrari like a hoon with an accomplice on March 8, 2012. Doesn't sound like that was "several weeks" ago.

Maybe this explains why he has been so disconnected from the others and paranoid the last couple seasons. He acts like he is in a fog lately, compared to how he acted the first few seasons.

Where do you start with this turd? he has so many problems. He is an uneducated moron, with no manners and no class. He wants you to believe he is a ladies man but he can't wait to call a cab and get the girl out of the house, you wonder how many relationships Mike had with woman before he became famous? I'm guessing he does some type of roids or HGH to enhance with the muscles and it looks like a couple of these guys are on blow when they are out acting like complete idiots at Karma. The Situation is a mess, he may even be gay and unable to accept it?

Don't worry... that nasal cavity can only take so much before he kicks the bucket. We'll just have to wait it out til he OD's. He's just prolonging it by taking breaks called Rehab.

I always thought the Sitch and his male companion the Unit had an odd relationship, especially how they are always admiring each other with their shirts off. I think the Situation may be having a very hard time coming to terms with his sexual preference and may be using drugs to cope. with it

He will do anything for attention. He's ridiculous. Can we pass a collection plate to pay him to go away?!
