Steve-O: I Truly Pray to Stay Sober
Pacific Coast
Jackass star Steve-O, who has been hospitalized in the psychiatric ward at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since mid-March, says he has a new outlook since undergoing treatment.

"I'm doing really well, overwhelmed with excitement regarding the future," the London-born daredevil performer (who's dealing with reckless-behavior issues, including the abuse of alcohol and drugs) tells PEOPLE. "My urge to stay sober, today, is way stronger than my urge to get f----- up. I truly pray to keep it that way."

The star of MTV's outlandish stunts show – who has been blogging from the hospital – expects to complete his 30-day treatment April 8.

Adds Steve-O (real name: Stephen Glover), 33: "I'm going door-to-door from rehab to a sober house. Woo-hoo!"
