‘The Situation’ Already Home From Rehab
Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, the star of the popular MTV show Jersey Shore, has returned home from a short stint in drug rehab for a prescription pill problem. The lifestyle that Sorrentino has been exposed to is a result of the major success of Jersey Shore, so his situation with prescription pain medications is obviously related to that. A good portion of the show is filmed at bars and night clubs where MTV cameras follow the Jersey Shore crew around while they get intoxicated and consequently ‘put on a show’ for their audience with incidents like bar fights, relationship quarrels, and run-ins with the law. At the very least there is alcohol consumption featured on every single episode so the culture that has been set for the Jersey Shore is certainly one of substance abuse and ridiculous behavior for the sake of entertainment. Sorrentino’s addiction has been going on for a few years now, but in the latest season of Jersey Shore he acts more unusual, paranoid, and bizarre—a result of his substance abuse getting to an unhealthy level.
It was just three weeks ago that Sorrentino checked into rehab, and given the drugs he was addicted to and the apparently significant addiction to the drugs, it comes as a surprise that he claims to be recovered and more healthy than ever. Many celebrities underachieve at rehab and check out much too soon in order to get back in the public eye, but this is not smart for long term results. Too often you see people in and out of rehab centers after half hearted attempts, so it’s smarter to just completely commit yourself to a program and stay for a lengthy recovery in order to ensure a complete recovery.
It’s unfortunately very common for people to become addicted to prescription painkillers today, but thankfully there’s excellent rehabilitation treatment available to battle these tough painkiller addictions. Individuals who abuse or are addicted to prescription medications can be treated. Initially, they may need to undergo medically supervised detoxification to help reduce withdrawal symptoms—however, that is just the first step. Options for effectively treating addiction to prescription pills are drawn from research on treating heroin addiction. Behavioral treatments combined with medications have proven effective. Finding the right treatment center can make all the difference for a patient because certain standard programs may not work. At Seabrook House, patients can take comfort in knowing that we structure individually inspired detox and rehab programs in order to fit the needs of each unique patient. Seabrook House has rehab facilities located in New Jersey (NJ) and Pennsylvania (PA) and also an outpatient office in New York (NY). If you or a loved one is abusing prescription medications then be sure to contact Seabrook House immediately for the treatment to get on the road to recovery.
