John Stamos’ rehab stint has begun as he seeks treatment for substance abuse, one month after he was arrested for DUI.
As People Magazine reports, the Full House star checked himself into a rehab facility to get help for substance abuse.
Last month, on June 12, Stamos was arrested in Beverly Hills, California, and charged with DUI. He was later taken to a nearby hospital to investigate a possible medical condition, according to USA Today.
“Thanks to everyone for their love & support. I’m home & well,” Stamos tweeted the day following his arrest. “Very appreciative of the BHPD & Cedars for their care.”

People Magazine’s exclusive announcement comes just hours after Variety reported that Stamos had pulled out as the co-host of the 2015 Emmy Awards nominations. Deadbeat’s Cat Deeley will be taking Stamos’ place. While the actor originally cited scheduling conflicts as his reason for pulling out, his rep was not immediately able to elaborate.
