Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is battling an addiction to prescription pills,Â including the powerful oral opioids Dilaudid,Â that is much worse than anyone anticipated, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. As first reported, The Situation voluntarily checked himself into rehab at the famous Cirque Lodge for several weeks, but while he’s admitted to excessive use of Xanax and Ambien, he didn’t mention any other drugs upon admission. The Situation had “become dependent on prescription pills to counter-act other his hard partying lifestyle, which included illegal substances. Mike was in a vicious cycle of not sleeping because of the illegal substances that he was taking, so he began using prescription pills to help him sleep. Mike would refer to the prescriptions pills as ‘downers.’ The good news is that he was the one that wanted to get help and checked into rehab. Hopefully with the proper treatment, Mike will be able to lead a sober life,” the pal tells us.Sorrentino is planning on returning to film the sixth season of The Jersey Shore this summer.
The best part about this entire thing is the last sentence. Mike is planning to return to the Jersey Shore this Summer… Well of course he is… I’m surprised the Jersey Shore made it six seasons. That’s freaking ridiculous. These dudes are pushing their mid-thirties, and now “The Addiction” is going to look for sympathy because he’s an addict. I hate to say it but if death, jail, disease, addiction, the 10 plagues are associated with a Jersey Shore member it doesn’t come as a surprise.
