The Situation

In Rehab at Cirque Lodge

for Rx Pills

3/21/2012 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0321-situation-splash-EXThe Situation is undergoing rehab at the famous Cirque Lodge in Utah for prescription meds, TMZ has learned.

Several sources have told us The Situation is at Cirque for other substance abuse problems ... but as of now, we can only confirm prescription meds.

Our sources say The Situation is walking around Cirque, telling people he's gained weight -- and has made specific diet requests from the chef at the facility, hoping to get back into shape for the 6th Season of "Jersey Shore."

And just to make sure he gets his way -- one source tells us, Sitch is making damn sure everyone remembers how wealthy and famous he is.

We're told this is not the first time The Situation has undergone treatment for substance abuse.

update_bar
1:50 PM PST -- Situation just released a statement ... claiming he has "voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion."

He continues, "I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys."

Sitch is do'in the right thing. He's gonna come back stronger than ever. Still think TMZ was kind of douchey for reporting the story before they new all the facts. Give the Sitch some respect next time. Wait,haters attack...... now.
We can take it,Sitch fans are tuff like that.BACKDASITCH!!!

PUBLICITY STUNT. Jersey Shore has gone downhill, PRODUCERS asked MIKE to liven up THE SITUATION by VOLUNTARILY go to a REHAB CLINIC for SUBSTANCE ABUSE to act out on JERSEY SHORE NEXT SEASON for MORE VIEWER RATINGS.

That is what my connection is telling me. My connection works closely with 495 Productions.

He does so much partying he got hooked on some kind of drug he can say prescription but thats how parties or going out and people sharing drugs are.Any real person who has exhaustion goes to a spa or takes a vacation.Gets help from a doctor yes but not a rehab facility.

I am so sick and tired of these so called celebd trying to claim EXHAUSTION for all their addiction problems. They obviously have no clue that they sound like complete douchbags who think the public is stupid. No, we aren't stupid...its quite obvious that THEY ARE though for not having the cojones to SAY I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MEDS/DRUGS/ALCOHOL. Good lord...and this guy thinks he is anything special? Nope, just another loser who got caught up in his own dying flame. Let's move on from this loser shall we?

Another American icon brought to us by "reality TV" and Ryan
Seacrest. Thank you Ryan. Laugh all the way to the bank because you have proven that a little ole southern boy from Georgia really can make a difference in this world.

im from the seaside heights area and know several people who have sold mike oxys and coke. Its no secret to people around here that he does them. With all his money its easy to catch a habit and need the pills everyday to function which is why during the camping trip he was all sweaty and was acting like such a crybaby when he came home and all his stuff was moved. Obvious he was dopesick. He mostlikely couldnt buy any because the film crew was around and his stash probably ran out. This just confirms what several sources have told me. Those pills start out as a weekend thing and before you know it you have to sniff one when you roll out of bed to even function.
