Taking a break from his "looney bin," Steve-O turned up at Los Angeles Superior Court today for a judge-ordered checkup.

The Jackass daredevil, otherwise known as Stephen Glover, proudly announced he has been sober now for 120 days and got a thumbs-up from the judge.

As for his blog post yesterday about checking into a looney bin?

"I just hit a wall in recovery, and before it got too bad, I saw my psychiatrist who looked at the state I was in and told me to check in," the performer told E! News after the brief hearing.

"I'm antsy to get back on with my life, but my highs have been so high and my lows so low. I feel like I'm not allowed to leave."

Glover, 33, is currently on probation after pleading guilty to felony possession of cocaine in June.

His attorney, Barry Sands, tells E! News the judge has agreed to a deferred entry of judgment—meaning as long as Glover completes his treatment program, the conviction will ultimately be waived. The next court date is Aug. 11.

"It's as good as it gets," Sands says of the deferred sentence. "He is in the right place now. It's a safe haven, and people in the early stages of recovery need that."

Steve-O is confident that even sober he can return to his outrageous stunt life, saying producers on Jackass were never interested in him showing up to work "out of [his] mind."

But for now, he has not made any plans for future work projects.

"What I am working on now is just maintaining sobriety."
