With a second child on the way, and with filming set to begin on season eight of Grey's Anatomy, Eric Dane has a lot to lose both personally and professionally.
Therefore - as a "preventative measure," according to a source - the actor recently checked into The Hills Treatment Center, a sober living recovery residence in Los Angeles.
Dane is there "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," the actor's spokesperson told Star Magazine.
Dane has starred on the aforementioned ABC hit since 2006 as Dr. Mark Sloan. We wish him a full, speedy, safe recovery.
