Shifty Shellshock

I'm SORRY I Was a

Drugged-Out Train Wreck

Crazy Town singer Shifty Shellshock wants to apologize to everyone affected by his recent drug arrest -- telling TMZ, he's deeply sorry for the decisions that led him down that path ... and now, he's turning his life around.

A rep for Shifty -- real name Seth Binzer -- tells us, "Seth has completely changed his life around and has checked into a highly regarded drug and alcohol treatment center where he will be working with them to restructure his life over the next 2 years.”

As we reported, Shifty was sentenced yesterday to three years probation, stemming from his February drug arrest -- when cops say he roughed up his ex-GF at a Ross Dress for Less while carrying rock cocaine. Shifty was also ordered to stay away from his ex.

But Shifty's extremely remorseful over the whole incident, telling us, "I would like to sincerely apologize to the parties involved ... I feel very bad for those who I have offended and those who have endured this situation."

According to his rep, Shifty's been in drug treatment since April -- having immediately sought help following his release from an L.A. hospital where he was treated for a mysterious coma.

We're told Shifty -- known for his multiple stints on "Celebrity Rehab" -- just got off tour, and has even quit cigarettes cold turkey.

One source says, “He knows he has to make this work and has to stay sober for him to live and be there for his kids. Nobody has seen Seth in such a good place before.”

It's true ... we got Seth out last weekend and he looked great.

He just can't say no to the booger sugar. He should wean himself off that with Bath Salts...then off bath salts with PCP. Then he is golden.

You had the world by its balls and you let drugs kill it. You need to leave the past alone because your future is back on drugs and then you'll start presenting the body and nervous system movements of a squirrel just like Tom Arnold and Tom Sizemore.

Wow. Let me get this straight. It's Dr Drew's fault that people relapse or overdose? Hmmm...typical new age Americans. Blame any and everybody but yourselves. Also, I myself am an addict, recovering, with a couple relapses. I'm nowhere NEAR an idiot. I'm an addict. It's not a disease, it's an addiction. 2 total different things. I can also spot the people who have never experienced such a thing, cause y'all are ignorant.

Too many apologies from this guy over the years for it too mean anything. Dude, if you're truly sorry for doing this to your family and friends then just stop doing it. Actions are all that counts.

Such ignorant people on this site. You obviously don't know the power of addiction. Count your blessings that you don't live with it. Addiction is a disease not a choice. Educate yourself before you post your heartlesss ignorant comments!!!
