The Situation, aka Mike Sorrentino has released a statement on his website regarding recent reports that he checked into a rehab centre on Tuesday. On, a message was posted yesterday (March 21, 2012) that read "I want to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. 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."
The people that run Mike Sorrentino's website added a further message that read, "It is important for us, and for The Situation, to let our fans know the truth behind what is actually going on, and getting treatment is something Mike has done on his own volition. We appreciate your continued support and well wishes for Mike as he gets the treatment he needs." Fox News reports that a representative for the Jersey Shore star declined to comment about the nature of his addiction problems, but they did say 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."<MTV have="" recently="" announced="" that="" jersey="" shore="" has="" been="" commissioned="" for="" a="" sixth="" season="" which="" is="" scheduled="" to="" start="" this="" summer="" with="" full="" cast="" expected="" appear.="">
