Nicholas Brendon is going to rehab to treat his "medical ailments" and "emotional demons," according to a statement posted on his official Facebook page on Monday.

Brendon used the statement to apologize to his family and fans, emphasizing just how much he regrets disappointing them as well as himself with his "unacceptable behavior."

"I apologize. Usually those words end a message like this but I am beginning with them to emphasize how much I regret disappointing my family, my fans, and myself... I make no excuse for my unacceptable behavior."
"For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap...I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable."
"During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation -- and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans."

The news of Nicholas Brendon being arrested on Friday night was first reported by TMZ.

Police stated that Nicholas caused a domestic disturbance in an Idaho hotel lobby and was arrested after refusing to cooperate with the officers.
