John Stamos Tweets that He Is 'Back,' 'Grateful' Following Rehab Stint
“I’m back!” wrote the former Full House star. “Took a month to take care of things. Healthy. Feeling grateful for the love & support of family & friends.”
In the accompanying photo, Stamos wears boxing tape around his hands and swings one fist towards a punching bag hanging from the ceiling. The actor has a determined look in his eye and is wearing a sweat-soaked “Win Blackie Win” shirt, a nod to his General Hospital character.
PEOPLE confirmed on July 10 that Stamos had checked himself into a residential program for the treatment of substance abuse in late June.
The 51-year-old star was charged with a DUI on June 12, after which he was hospitalized briefly for an unknown medical condition.
Of the actor’s decision to enter rehab, a source close to Stamos told PEOPLE that he is “focusing on his health” and “knows he needs to take care of himself.”
