Weiland attorney Tony Brooklier says the singer, 40, completed 28 days in a treatment facility after checking in early last month. Weiland, whose treatment forced the band to cancel tour dates in February, is "doing well," Brooklier said.
Weiland was charged with driving under the influence of drugs after the former Stone Temple Pilots singer's arrest last November.

Scott Weiland was formally charged Wednesday for one count of driving under the influence of drugs with a prior conviction, prosecutors tell PEOPLE.

If convicted, Weiland faces a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. His car could also be impounded for up to 30 days. However, City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan adds that Weiland faces "a minimum penalty of eight days in jail."
His arraignment is set for Thursday.
Weiland was arrested Nov. 11 in the San Fernando Valley after failing a field sobriety test. Police say he later refused to take a blood or urine test after he was booked at Van Nuys Jail.
