On Wednesday (March 23), Joe Giudice surrendered himself to federal prison at 12:00pm ET to begin serving a 41-month sentence for bank and bankruptcy fraud.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star released a statement to PEOPLE through family attorney James J. Leonard Jr.,

Joe Giudice surrendered himself to the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix today at 12 p.m. to begin serving his sentence. His brother, his sister and several other members of the Giudice family, as well as myself, were present when he turned himself in to the prison, including Teresa. It was obviously a very emotional day, but this is a very strong family with a tremendous support system and they will get through this, just as they did when Teresa was away.”

The 43-year-old father of four will use his time in the slammer to detox from alcohol and God knows what else,

“I’m looking at it like rehabilitation for me,” he told PEOPLE. “I am not going to be able to drink for a while which is good because I don’t even know when it’s been since I haven’t had a drink. It’s been a long time. Definitely the whole year I definitely drank every day couple bottles at night just to go to bed.”

Joe‘s prison philosophy in a nutshell,  

“Mind your business, do your thing. Just stay low key and do your thing nobody wants any problems in there.”
