Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane recently checked into a Los Angeles rehab clinic, Star magazine is reporting.

His spokesperson confirmed the 30-day stint and told Star: “Actor Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus. He reports back to work next week. Business as usual.”

With filming starting back up on his ABC show on July 19, and with his wife Rebecca Gayheart pregnant with the couple’s second child, Dane had far “too much to lose” if he slipped, according to a family friend.

"Eric felt things spiraling out of control and decided he needed to get some help,” the source told Star.
