The Sober Guys on Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Ortiz-Margo is joining Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino in sobriety.

Though both rose to TV-centered fame with their alcohol-fueled antics on Jersey Shore, the two are now choosing sobriety for long-term happiness. The Situation’s sobriety (and legal) struggles were hot topics in 2018, with Sorrentino showing his sobriety on Jersey Shore Family Vacation. [1]

Another Jersey Shore star has joined The Situation in getting sober. After struggles with depression, Jersey Shore’s Ronnie sought treatment for his mental health and alcoholism. The star recently discussed his mental health struggles, substance abuse issues, and how he realized it was time to get help for both.

Ronnie Ortiz-Margo’s Mental Health Struggles

In a recent interview, Ortiz-Margo revealed his struggles with mental health and alcoholism. “When I was depressed, I would turn to drinking and then when I would drink, bad things would just continue to happen,” the TV star revealed in an US Weekly interview. [2]

The Jersey Shore star’s struggles with mental health and substance abuse show how these two challenges can work together to keep the problems in motion. Mental health challenges such as depression can lead to substance abuse, and the effects of substance abuse can lead to worsening addiction. Compounded with legal and personal struggles, such as those the star faced, it’s no surprise that Ronnie Ortiz-Margo’s mental health was in need of professional support.
