Two years after he filmed the final season of MTV's smash hit Jersey Shore, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is moving on with his life – but it wasn't so easy.
"When I had gotten out of Jersey Shore, I had a year to settle down and find out who I was, and I wasn't in the best shape," Sorrentino tells PEOPLE. "I had to rebuild myself inside and out."
That included gaining control of an addiction to prescription medication, drugs and alcohol, with a trip to rehab in 2012.

His TV alter ego, Sheriff Andy Bellefleur on HBO's True Blood, has seen his share of mysterious pasts. But in real life, Chris Bauer has been harboring a dark secret of his own.
The actor, 47, has been sober for seven years, following a decades-long battle with drugs and alcohol.
"It was a slow-motion catastrophe," Bauer tells PEOPLE. "I wasn't just out of control, I was 100 percent off my path."
Finally choosing to reveal his story is "intuitive and spontaneous," Bauer says. "I got sober right after I shot the pilot for True Blood. Now that it's winding down, I'm in touch with how much my life has changed from getting my act together."
