Eric DaneGrey's Anatomy star Eric Dane has checked into a rehabilitation center in a bid to kick a dependence on prescription painkillers.

The actor, whose wife Rebecca Gayheart is reportedly pregnant with the couple's second child, enrolled himself in a 30-day program at The Hills Treatment Center in Los Angeles last month, his representative has revealed.

Dane's spokesperson tells, "Eric Dane voluntarily checked himself into a treatment facility to help him get off of pain medication that he was prescribed for a sports injury that he suffered over the recent hiatus (of Grey's Anatomy)."

Dane is expected to return to work on the hit medical drama later this week  after completing his rehab stint.
