John Stamos of Full House and ER fame is in rehab for substance abuse. The actor checked himself in to a residential program nearly a month after he was arrested and charged with DUI in Beverly Hills back on June 12. Stamos was hospitalized that same night with an undisclosed illness.

Following his arrest and hospitalization, John Stamos Tweeted his followers.

This spring John Stamos announced that Netflix would be airing a Full House reboot starting in 2016. He will serve as producer and make appearances on the show as Uncle Jesse. Called Fuller House, the new show will star Candace Cameron Bure, Andrea Barber, and Jodie Sweetin in their former Full House roles as D.J. Cameron, Kimmy Gibbler, and Stephanie Tanner--all grown up. Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier, and Bob Saget will appear on the show from time to time.

John Stamos is also set to star on a new Fox sitcom called Grandfathered. That show premieres this fall.

Hopefully the actor's stint in rehab won't delay filming for either of these projects. It's likely that those working with Stamos understand his need for this residential program.

Many people were shocked to learn John Stamos had been arrested for DUI last month. Do you suppose they're equally as shocked to learn he has checked himself into rehab?

Kudos to John Stamos for seeking the help he needs.
