TMZ reports that Sorrentino checked out of Utah's Cirque Lodge on Wednesday.

The reality star confirmed last month that he was seeking treatment for a prescription drug problem.

"I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion," he revealed on his Facebook page. "I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys."

MTV announced in March that "The Jersey Shore" is coming back for a sixth season, with expectant mom Snooki on board as well.
