“Grey’s Anatomy” actor Eric Dane checked into rehab for an addiction to painkillers sometime this summer, his rep told USA Today.

“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,” his rep said in a statement. “He reports back to work next week. Business as usual.”

E! Online reports that Dane checked into a 30-day program in Los Angeles last month and that the actor has already returned to the “Grey’s” set.

Dane and his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, recently announced that they are expecting their second child.
