The Situation goes to Rehab
That’s right folks, your favorite juicebox needs recovery time for reported exhaustion that lead to prescription medication addiction and abuse.
Reportedly, Mike Sorrentino, AKA “The Situation” has checked into rehab. According to Dr. Drew, the celebrity from Jersey Shore has a problem with Xanax and Ambien, which the good doctor says can be a deadly combination due to the short-acting effects of both. Apparently, because both of these drugs have a half life of less than four hours, the addiction becomes a problem because users are trying to maintain the euphoria or sleepfulness they attain when on the drug. When their pills can’t keep up with the body’s demand for benzodiazepines or ambien, off to rehab we go.
The Situation is only one of a long line of celebrities to need help to detox from Xanax. At least he is alive to tell the story. We still don’y have the autopsy results for Whitney Houston, but chances are, benzo addiction played a major role in her death, among others this year.
The Situation’s need to be in rehab to detox from drugs may shake things up for the sixth season of the Jersey Shore franchise–especially now that we know Snooki will be heavily pregnant as well. Looks like the fun and games on the boardwalk and all the years of drunken stunts, trips to do laundry, gym, and tanning, and hunting for chicks to smash may have finally paid off… in the most logical manner possible. Unwanted pregnancy and drug addiction–doesn’t everyone have a summer like that?
I wish Mike all the best in recovery, but if he wants to stay on the party circuit, he needs to watch his habits, detox often, get plenty of rest, and try to get rest naturally. He might do well to take a season off, but then, would he be coming back to anything in a year? Or just an image that had washed up like all reality TV stardom does eventually? It’s nothing personal Mike, but maybe you should detox from drugs, stay clean, and try to find a day job. At least that way we won’t have to hear about someone finding your body slumped over in a corner a year from now and be forced to watch your funeral on the Fuse Network.
