The Situation

Checks into Rehab

3/20/2012 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"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.

Rehab? Sorry, but there's no cure for being a douchebag. It's a terminal condition.

Who woulda thunk it? You think it was alcohol or something along the hard drugs line? You know, since his best friend got popped for horse tranquilizers.

NO KIDDING. Twitchy, sweaty, paranoid, erratic, violent, and covered in acne. Best bud is "Unit," a doper/dealer/d'bag.

The kid needs therapy. I hope he gets his sh*t together.

Why are they making a 6th season?! I'm freaking tiered of the jersey shore and all its members. I use to watch i'm already sick of all of them. Let these drunks move on already. 15mins up like last year. Get over it already. I dont even bother watching that show anymore. Same crap. BORING!

Im from ocean county nj which is the same county seaside heights is in and I personally know several people who have sold Mike oxys and coke...they said during the camping trip he was sweating and acting erractic...seems to me as someone whos had firsthand experience with those pills that he was going through withdrawal and couldnt get his hands on due to the film crew being around. those pills are an epidemic and dont discriminate. becoming a millionaire and having unlimited access to them obviously accelerated his addiction which i hear he had even before his stardom.
