Eric Dane Checks into Rehab

by at . Comments

A spokesperson for Eric Dane has confirmed: the Grey's Anatomy star recently checked into rehab.

The actor has been a client of Hills Treatment Center, a sober living residence in West Los Angeles, since mid-June, according to reports.

Dane's rep reportedly told that publication:

"Actor Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus."

"He reports back to work next week."

Serious Dad-to-Be

Filming on season eight of Grey's Anatomy got underway yesterday.

With wife Rebecca Gayheart pregnant with the couple’s second child, Dane had “too much to lose” if he slipped, a family friend says.

We wish the TV Fanatic favorite a full recovery.

Very smart of him:) Glad to see he had his family in mind


Eric didn't look well at the end of last season, so it's good he's seeking help


It is very nice to see him be a real man and do the right thing.

Glad he'll never get to that point...


I wish more people would voluntarily check in before things get out of hand. Smart move, looking forward to seeing him on Grey's in the fall. :)


I'm glad he's doing the right thing and getting help with his family in mind!! :)

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.


Vulnerability isn't the opposite of strength. It's a necessary part. You have to force yourselves to open up, to expose ourselves, to offer everything we have and just pray that it's good enough. Otherwise, we'll never succeed.
