Alex O'Loughlin in Treatment for Prescription Drugs

Alex O’Loughlin will be missing at least one episode of Hawaii Five-0 while he completes treatment for prescription drugs.

The 35-year-old actor “is taking a short break to receive supervised treatment for prescription pain medication due to a recent shoulder injury,” his rep said in a statement (via EW).

“We respect and support Alex’s decision,” CBS Studios, which produces the drama, added. “Everyone at CBS TV Studios and Hawaii Five-0 wishes him well and we look forward to his return.”

Alex‘s treatment is not expected to affect production, which has already filmed 19 episodes. After episode 20 is completed, the show will then take a short break before filming three more episodes for its second season.
