Eric Dane almost done with rehab

Eric Dane checked himself into rehab last month -- and he's already almost done with his 30-day stint.

The "Grey's Anatomy" hunk entered a California treatment center to address issues with prescription drugs, his rep said Wednesday. The actor, husband of Rebecca Gayheart, became dependent after suffering an injury, according to E! Online.

Dane "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," his rep said in a statement.

Though news of Dane's time away surfaced only Wednesday, he's already almost finished the rehabilitation and is expected back on the set of "Grey's" in a matter of days.

"He reports back to work next week," said his rep. "Business as usual."

Dane and Gayheart have 1-year-old daughter, Billie Beatrice, and recently announced they're expecting a second child.
