Well, it looks like we finally have a an answer about why The Situation went to rehab.

TMZ is reporting that The Situation is currently checked into an inpatient treatment at the upscale rehab clinic Cirque Lodge in Utah. Mike has also released a statement to TMZ saying that he is seeking help for a “prescription medication problem” that he “had due to exhaustion.”

"I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule,” he continued. “I appreciate my fans support and love you guys."

Mike’s brother Marc has previously asked that fans and press have “respect” for his family and Mike during this troubled time.

This isn’t the first time that Mike has gone to rehab. The Jersey Shore star was previously sent to a rehab clinic in Florida when he was 27 for a drug problem. That means that Mike went into Jersey Shore as a recovering addict.

Rehab or not, Mike is still planning on appearing on Jersey Shore Season 6 this summer.
