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.
