One month after his DUI arrest, John Stamos has checked into rehab, Us Weekly can confirm. The Full House alum is seeking treatment for substance abuse issues in a residential program.

Stamos, 51, made headlines on June 12 when he was pulled over by the Beverly Hills Police Department. According to a media release at the time, officers suspected a "possible medical condition" and transported him to a local hospital. 

"Subsequent investigation at the hospital determined that he was driving under the influence," a BHPD public information officer stated. As a result, the actor received a citation and an order to appear in court on Sept. 11.

Following his arrest, Stamos took to Twitter to address fans. "Thanks to everyone for their love & support," he wrote on June 13. "I'm home & well. Very appreciative of the BHPD & Cedars for their care."

News of his stint in rehab comes just hours after Variety reported that he had pulled out as co-host of the 2015 Emmy nominations announcement on Thursday, July 16. The Fuller House producer was due to present the nominees with Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba, but has been replaced by So You Think You Can Dance hostess Cat Deeley.

Stamos' other work commitments include the Fox sitcom Grandfathered, which premieres this fall, the Netflix Full House spinoff, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.
