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 guess rehab is more like a vacation from partying just to give your body a break before you go back to more partying.

I think the entire cast of that lame show is on drugs.

And people on drugs aren't that interesting to me.

Why is it that every time the guy from Louisiana,who "reps" California on his t-shirts, oh I coulda just said the black guy. Every time he says his pitch he always puts his left hand and acts like he is scratching the left side of his face and its so obvious he's going bling beggin with his wack watch. Too funny. Every time. Too tryin.

Every single episode is about drinking, screwing and fighting. If these were people in their late teens, early 20s, it might make some sense, but these are people in their 30s for God's sake. How many of them still live at home and can't make a move without Mommy and Daddy? The whole thing is sick.

He acted like he was on some kind of a drug this last season, always rubbing at his nose, sweating and acting strung out and angry.

I have no idea who he is.....which more than likely means he's from some kind of "reality" TV show of which I don't watch any of them....so my comment is "who cares??????????"

I WILL BET EVERYTHING I OWE [NOT THAT YOU'D WANT IT] but he did SOMETHING outrageous and was told/or he said that he'd have to go into REHAB/THERAPY/HOSPITAL or ELSE. He pushed, pushed, pushed and then he pushed a little more and then POW. But I blame MTV, they created this monster as they have destroyed the lives of countless others who have participated in their cheap ass schemes to profit [I will resist identifying the religious/ethnic orientation that would exhibit that propensity to exploit] others, Grant it, those idiots on that show were predisposed to be losers and lowlifes, MVT just gave them a forum and elevated [to the initiated] their conjured lifestyle of stupidity to stardom.
