"The Confrontation" says this isn't a new "Situation" for his son.
Frank Sorrentino says that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has been in rehab before, when The Sitch was 27, before his Jersey Shore fame.
Frank says his family grew so concerned about his drug use in the past that they checked him into a clinic in Florida. He adds that The Sitch was so strapped for cash that his brother Mark fronted the bill for him.
The Sorrentino patriarch said the following about his son:
Mike's issues became so bad that it was imperative for them to get him into treatment.
When Mikey was in rehab we found the facility for him in Florida and we brought him down here and did a 7 day dry out period then he went to another facility for 30 days.
For me, after years of dealing with his addiction, years of dealing with all the bullsh*t, this wasn’t a 16-year-old kid. The guy was a 27-year-old man. I was just hoping he would be able to stand up.
Now, it looks like The Situation needs a bit more help.
As reported earlier, The Sitch has entered rehab at Cirque Lodge and even his former cast mate Angelina thinks this should have been done a looong time ago.
Hopefully he can a full recovery down the road!
