American Pie actor Chris Klein has checked himself into rehab, his rep confirmed.

"After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he can not beat this disease alone," his rep Jaime Primak told People. "He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so."

The 31-year old actor was arrested on June 16 on suspicion of drunk driving after being pulled over on the highway. His blood alcohol level allegedly was three times the legal limit of .08. In 2005, he was arrested and convicted of driving under the influence. That time, his blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit, according to the criminal complaint.

Klein is enrolled in a thirty day alcohol addiction program at Utah’s Cirque Lodge and plans to extend his stay if need be.
