Aerosmith's lead singer, Steve Tyler, has entered rehab for painkiller addiction treatment, BBC reported.

Tyler had been taking the drugs to help him cope with 10 years of performance injuries.

With the help of my family and team of medical professionals, I am taking responsibility for the management of my pain and am eager to be back on the stage and in the recording studio with my bandmates Joe Perry, Joey Kramer, Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford, Tyler said in a statement released to PEOPLE.

The band canceled a summer tour in August after the 61-year-old fell off the stage during a performance in South Dakota and broke his left shoulder.

His daughter Liv also issued a statement calling Tyler a courageous man.
