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.

This guy is always apologizing for his drug addictions and it's always this time he's gonna clean up his act. It's the same old song and dance. I hope he really does clean up his act, but how many times has he said that it's been years and probably will be years to come until he succumbs to his addictions. Even With DJ Am his band ate dying this guy continues to abuse drugs. He will finally quit when he's dead. This is old news.

"Dr" Drew needs to get his license revoked. How many patients under his care have died since he famewhored on that joke of a show "celebrity rehab". A lot.

Saw his photo and thought this was gonna be his obituary. Same with Courtney Love. Certain people are so clearly on a road to an over-dose. It's sad and something needs to happen that scares the **** out of them. Hey Shifty, I expected you to be dead!
