“I’ve had a rough year with my mom dying, so it all came to a head, and it was a turning point,” he said.
After his rehab stint, Stamos tweeted his thanks to fans
for their support, announcing that he was ready to get back to work on his TV projects, including the upcoming Netflix revival, Fuller House
"I'm back!" he wrote. "Took a month to take care of things. Healthy. Feeling grateful for the love & support of family & friends."
Stamos will be required to complete his court-mandated counseling by May 24, 2016. Proof of his AA sessions will be due on Nov. 28, 2016.
