On May 18, 2011, the news programme TV Patrol confirmed that Manio underwent rehabilitation treatment for drug addiction. He then entered a drug rehabilitation facility after realizing that he was throwing his life away. With the encouragement of his father, Andrew, and his manager, Magnifico director Maryo J. delos Reyes, he committed himself to the Home Care rehabilitation center, where he underwent therapy for almost a year. After the initial phase of his rehabilitation, Home Care allowed him to finish his senior year of high school.

On June 30, 2015, Manio was spotted wandering around Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3. Manio, who was scavenging for food and living off the kindness of airport staff, had apparently run away and gone missing from his Cainta four days before, following a supposed altercation with relatives.

On July 1, 2015, four days after wandering around NAIA, he was finally brought home by his half brother, Anjo Santos, after Jiro's relative saw his picture that appeared on different social networking sites.

Comedian Ai-Ai delas Alas and other artists offered Jiro their help to get his life back on the right track, but he refused it.

When he was asked by reporters if he is still open to new projects in the near future, Jiro refuses to continue his work as an actor.

On January 2016, Manio was released from a rehabilitation center after months of treatment but returned to in February due to his chronic health condition.
