The SituationMike "The Situation" Sorrentino says rehab was "unbearable."

The Jersey Shore star has opened up about his stint in a treatment facility in March to cure his addiction to prescription pills, describing it as the toughest experience of his life.

Speaking in a teaser for the first episode of the hit MTV show's sixth season, Mike confessed, "The last couple of months I have been really working on getting back to who I really am. I was dependent on prescription pills. I knew I needed help and I went to rehab. Rehab is the most unbearable, unpleasant experience you could possibly go through, but I am the cleanest and healthiest I have ever been since I was 21 or so."

The 30-year-old star was confronted by his housemates - Snooki, Pauly Delvecchio, Sammi Giancola, Deena Cortese, Vinny Guadagnino, Jenni "Jwoww" Farley and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro - around the dinner table about his problems, and he revealed he has found a new lease of life since becoming sober.

I'm going to be that person who has a glass of wine and [the baby] comes out with three legs. I just don't like to be around people who drink because then I'll be like, 'Cool, I miss it,'" she previously explained.
