NEW YORK (AP) — Former "Jersey Shore" cast member Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino realized he had an addiction problem on a trip to Australia in February 2012.
He ran out of a prescription to treat an injury suffered during a 2010 stint on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" and couldn't drag himself out of bed.
Soon after Sorrentino checked into rehab where doctors prescribed him with a medication to treat opiod addiction. Sorrentino still takes it daily and says that, combined with counseling, is what works best for him.
The 32-year-old is now a paid spokesman for Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the company that makes the medication. He's also helped launch a program called Reset Reality, to spread knowledge and understanding of opiod prescription painkiller addictions.
