Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino has spoken candidly about his tough stint in rehab during the 'Jersey Shore' season premiere.
Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino says rehab was ''unbearable''.
The 'Jersey Shore' star has opened up about his stint in a treatment facility in March to cure his addiction to prescription pills, describing it as the toughest experience of his life.
Speaking in a teaser for the first episode of the hit MTV show's sixth season, Mike confessed: ''The last couple of months I have been really working on getting back to who I really am. I was dependent on prescription pills. I knew I needed help and I went to rehab.
''Rehab is the most unbearable, unpleasant experience you could possibly go through but I am the cleanest and healthiest I have ever been since I was 21 or so.''
The 30-year-old star was confronted by his housemates - Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, Pauly Delvecchio, Sammi Giancola, Deena Cortese, Vinny Guadagnino, Jenni 'Jwoww' Farley and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro - around the dinner table about his problems, and he revealed he has found a new lease of life since becoming sober.
Mike admitted: ''I quit the hard s**t. I run four miles a day, I'm the healthiest I've been ... I was just exhaused, so tired. I just needed to just go to sleep, you know?
''I put my hands up, I was like, 'Man, I can't do this no more,' and that was it. I had to fix the problem. I went away for 34 days.''
This comes after the 'Celebrity Big Brother' star was allegedly seen ''downing so many cocktails he could barely stand'' on a night out in Los Angeles on Tuesday (02.10.12).
His representative strongly denied the claim and insisted Mike is still sober and was partying ''with twelve other people and there was a pitcher of sangria for the other people. He did not drink any alcohol.''
