John Stamos Checks into Rehab for Substance Abuse

John Stamos is seeking help for substance abuse one month after his DUI arrest.

UsWeekly confirms that the Full House star checked into a residential rehabilitation program late on Friday, July 10.

Stamos was arrested in June when the Beverly Hills Police Department received multiple calls from residents with alerts of a “possible DUI driver in the area”. He was pulled over and transported to a local hospital to be treated for a “possible medical condition” that caused his reckless driving.

The BHPD confirmed that Stamos was under the influence and cited the actor for a misdemeanor DUI. He later sent gratitude to fans for their support via Twitter.

Variety reported that Stamos would be stepping down from his gig as a co-host for the 2015 Emmy nomination announcements only hours before the news of his entry into rehab was released for public knowledge.

With an exciting roster of current projects which include the Full House spinoff on Netflix and a sequel to My Big Fat Greek Wedding with Nia Vardalos, we hope that Stamos will find his way to wellness to keep doing what he does best.
