The actor “checked himself into a residential program for the treatment of substance abuse.”
Originally slated to co-host the 2015 Emmy Award nominations on Thursday alongside Uzo Aduba, Stamos pulled out of the gig on Friday. He has been replaced by Cat Deeley.
Earlier this month, Stamos, 51, was arrested in Beverly Hills for driving under the influence after multiple residents had called police to report an erratic driver in the area.
His intoxication was confirmed after he was taken to a local hospital, sent there because police were concerned that he might have been suffering from a medical condition. After receiving a citation, Stamos was released into the care of the hospital for further treatment but left the following day. The Grandfathered actor thanked his fans on Twitter the next day, writing that he was “home and well.”
Stamos’ court date for the DUI arrest is set for Sept. 11. Grandfathered is set to premiere in the fall.
