Eric Dane recently entered a rehab facility to get treatment for addiction to prescription painkillers but is expected to go back to work soon.  

"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," the actor's rep said in a statement. Dane -- who plays Dr. Mark Sloan (Dr. McSteamy) on the hit medical drama -- reports back to work this week, the rep added.

The news comes just a few weeks after confirmed that Dane and his wife Rebecca Gayheart are expecting their second child. The couple already has one daughter, Billie, who is 16 months old.
