Jersey Shore - Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino's Hard Days Since Leaving Rehab
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino admits there's been ''a lot of rainy days'' since leaving rehab but says he's doing well after his two-week stint in Utah's Cirque Lodge.
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino admits there's been ''a lot of rainy days'' since leaving rehab.
The 'Jersey Shore' star recently completed a two-week stint in Utah's Cirque Lodge - where he received treatment for his addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol-related issues - and while he is getting his life back on track, he admits it's very difficult at times.
He said: ''Ever since I've been out, I'm not gonna lie ... it's not easy. But at the same time, where I'm at right now, I'm at a good place. But it took a little bit to get there. In the beginning? A lot of rainy days, so to speak. A lot of rainy days.''
Mike, 29, says the first few days of detox were very hard because he never thought he'd get better.
He told MTV: ''Your first day is detox. It's not a pleasurable experience at all. I'd wake up and just be extremely disappointed with myself. Like, 'I can't believe I got here. How did I get here?'
''I'm not gonna lie, it feels like you're not gonna recover. It feels like an impossible deed ... [but] day-by-day it gets better.''
In March, Mike confessed he was addicted to prescription pills and was getting help.
In a post on his Facebook page, the reality TV star said: ''I wanted 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.''
A representative for The Situation - who recently underwent a promotional tour of Australia - had initially claimed the reality TV star wasn't being treated for drug abuse.
