Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Talks Prescription Pill Addiction

Posted Tuesday September 10, 2013 12:08 PM GMT

Back in 2010 he suffered a neck injury while competing on the hit ABC reality series “Dancing with the Stars,” and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino says his addiction to drugs began shortly thereafter.

The former “Jersey Shore” hunk told the Associated Press that he’s still struggling with his prescription pill issues, though things have gotten better over time.

When he was at his worst, Mike couldn’t do even the most basic tasks- "All I had to do was get dressed for a family function and I couldn’t do that.”

“The shirt was laid out, the belt, the pants, everything. The shower was on. I couldn’t even get out of bed,” he continued, at which point he had to ask himself, “If I can’t [get dressed], how am I going to continue?”
