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.

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

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. :)

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

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.
