Justin Chambers Checks Into UCLA Psych Ward

at . Comments

Actor Justin Chambers, who plays Dr. Alex Karev on Grey's Anatomy, checked himself in to the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center this week.

A rep for Chambers, who has five children with wife Keisha, said he was "exhausted and suffers from a sleeping disorder" and "went in voluntarily to get help."

Justin Chambers' character remains one of Grey's Anatomy's best.

Interestingly, Chambers was in the same ward where Britney Spears is currently being treated for bipolar disorder, having been admitted early this morning.

Justin checked in Monday and left yesterday. Here's hoping he got the help he needs and is feeling better! We need him for those Izzie-Alex scenes...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
