Eric enters a 30-day program while wife Rebecca Gayheart if pregnant to treat an addiction to painkillers.

Eric Dane has checked into rehab to fight off an addiction to pills before he begins work again on Grey’s Anatomy. His spokesperson tells Star, “Actor Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus. He reports back to work next week. Business as usual.”

Eric’s wife Rebecca Gayheart is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child and there have been rumors the two have had problems with dependency. A video surfaced of the pair in 2009 having a threesome with former beauty queen Kari-Ann Peniche where the three appeared to be under the influence and drug paraphernalia was visible.

“Eric felt things spiraling out of control and decided he needed to get some help,” a friend told the magazine.
