Eric Dane Checks into Rehab

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.

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.
