Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino is out of rehab and headed back to the Jersey Shore!
The reality star, who was battling an addiction to prescription pills, has completed his residential treatment program at Cirque Lodge and claims he is back and doing great!
“The Situation is home!! I just want to thank everyone for their support and words of encouragement,” he tweeted on Thursday. “I’m back stronger and better than ever!”
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Sorrentino voluntarily checked himself into the Utah rehab center for several weeks, and while he’s admitted to excessive use of Xanax and Ambien, he didn’t mention any other drugs upon admission.
“Mike was taking unbelievable amounts of Dilaudid along with Xanax and Ambien. Mike was taking about 20-30 pills a day which easily could have killed him,” an insider exclusively told us.
“Mike is very lucky that he didn’t overdose and die, because the amount of prescription drugs was that high and deadly.”
The source went on to say, “Mike would also drink alcohol while he was taking the pills which obviously could have had a horrible outcome for him. Everyone around him is hopeful he will stay sober once he leaves Cirque Lodge.”
Sorrentino doesn’t have much time before the cameras are back on him. The sixth season of his hit MTV show is scheduled to start filming this summer.
