I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

When Michael ended up in prison for the first time, he soon understood he had to adapt himself to the awful conditions or he would perish.

It's okay. Landed might be better than ended up.

"End up" sounds like it was expected in a way.

I'd remove "himself" after "adapt".
