"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.

Why do they check into these weird centers? Whenever I wanna quit drugs and alcohol for a bit i just take xanax the first few days then play a lot of video games and I come back to life within a week.

I never got what it was he was supposed to be, what he did or why he thought he was something special. Can he play the guitar or dance? Nonetheless, I wish him nothing but the best.
Good luck numbnuts!

@ #88 vanessa gabiano:
I disagree with your comment. They are choosing to do this on their own free will. If Snooki is preggos, its by her own free will. Mike being a crack-head is his choice as well too. Last time I read, his friend "the unit" was busted for drugs......

This man is a pure Coke head! no doubt, I was telling my wife this a few weeks ago, fidgety and sweaty paranoia all the signs of a coke user. I wasn't surprised to see this.
