Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is back home after a stint in rehab to “take control” of a prescription drug problem.

The “Jersey Shore” reality star’s official website said the Sitch was “now stronger and better than ever, and excited for this new amazing chapter in his life.”

Sorrentino confirmed on March 21 he’d spent “several weeks” getting treatment for prescription medication he had been taking to deal with exhaustion. According to reports, he’d checked into Utah’s Cirque Lodge.

The 29-year-old has not said which medication he needed treatment to overcome.

His father Frank Sorrentino has said the hard partying “Jersey Shore” star had also checked into rehab at age 27, before he joined MTV’s hit show, the New York Daily News reported.

Sorrentino is set to begin filming the next season of “Jersey Shore” later this year.

Castmate Vinny Guadagnino told BANG Showbiz the “Shore” “family” did not know how Sorrentino’s situation would affect filming but would “find a way to make it work.”
