Watch Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Online - Full Episodes
Television is awash in reality programs, but there may be none as earthy as Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. The hour-long weekly program follows celebrities and other well-known individuals as they attempt to overcome various forms of substance abuse under the guidance of Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew was born out of concern by Dr. Pinsky that substance abuse had grown into a tabloid media sensation, with excessive attention being given to celebrity addicts and not enough to the issue of addiction itself. The emphasis of the program is therefore on the treatment of substance abuse. Early casting reportedly ran into problems because of resistance by the representatives of celebrities. The concern was over the showing of public figures in ways that were radically different from how they were normally seen.
The program employs multiple camera crews that separately follow eight or nine patients through rehabilitation over the course of each season. The patients are recorded 24 hours a day, every day of the three-week program. Cameras without crews are also set up to capture events that may occur in more private settings. Microphones are even set up in restrooms used by the patients should they attempt to secretly satisfy their addictions. The patients receive a salary in addition to the treatment, which is free to them. The treatment takes place at the Pasadena, California, Recovery Center.
Dr. Pinsky, who is an internist and specialist in addiction medicine, had previously gained fame as a syndicated radio host dedicated to helping young adults deal with various issues. His assistants on his TV show include technicians, a counselor and a psychiatrist.
Producers had during the first season sought actor Tom Sizemore, who had received considerable publicity for his various addictions, and although this attempt was unsuccessful, he did appear in the third season of the program. Other celebrities who have appeared on the show include actor Daniel Baldwin, who had struggled with addiction to cocaine, former basketball player Dennis Rodman, an abuser of alcohol, and former model Janice Dickinson, who had used both cocaine and alcohol.
Some experts in addiction have criticized the techniques used by Dr. Pinsky. Two celebrities, actor Jeff Conaway and musician Mike Starr, died from the effects of their substance abuse after appearing on the program. However, Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew has drawn praise from others, including some addiction specialists.

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew News
Troubled country singer Mindy McCready is dead after apparently shooting herself, just a month after her boyfriend and "soulmate" also apparently shot himself.
It's been somewhat of a rough last year or so for VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" reality shows featuring Dr. Drew Pinski. Despite above-average marks for the network, that's included two former cast members succumbing to substance abuse problems with fatal results. So, with Dr. Drew focusing on a new CW daytime show, VH1 is putting "Celebrity Rehab" through its own detox for a while.
Country singer Mindy McCready recently spoke out with an account of her cross-country custody drama regarding her son Zander, and the details are sort of heartbreaking. As authorities in Arkansas took McCready's son away from her, she said her son was crying out not to be separated from his mother.
Country singer Mindy McCready's dramatic run from Florida authorities with her 5-year-old son Zander is officially over. Authorities found McCready and her son, who had been declared a missing person by the State of Florida, hiding in the closet of her boyfriend's lake home in rural Heber Springs, Arkansas.
Yesterday, country singer Mindy McCready missed a court-ordered deadline to return her 5-year-old son Zander to Florida by 5 p.m. EST, claiming that she couldn't travel as she was pregnant with twins. As we suspected, that excuse was not good enough for the courts, who have issued a "pickup order" in the case.
As the clock ticks on country singer Mindy McCready's 5:00 p.m. EST deadline to return her 5-year-old son Zander to Florida courts in the midst of a bitter custody battle, the plot has considerably thickened. The singer said last night that she is 7 months pregnant, and unable to return to Florida with her child.
Despite rumors and media reports to the contrary, there is no Amber Alert out on country singer Mindy McCready's 5-year-old son, but she does face serious legal repercussions (including possible jail time) if she does not return him to a court in Lee County, Florida by Thursday.
The fifth season of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" premieres Sunday, June 26th and 9:00, so VH1 figured it was about time people see what (and who) they're in store for. The popular show will feature one returning player, the father of a famous celebrity, a former baseball player, and a true American success story.
Yesterday, we reported that Michaele Salahi, who has appeared on "The Real Housewives of D.C.," was booted off of "Celebrity Rehab" for a reason that seemed pretty fair: she doesn't have an addiction. According to Entertainment Weekly, Salahi will be replaced by "Blade Runner" and "The Young and the Restless" star Sean Young. Apparently the producers of the show were told initially that Salahi needed rehab and would be a good fit for the show, but an investigation found that the reality star and notorious party crasher has
It looks like Michaele Salahi found a party she couldn't crash. The socialite and reality TV personality made headlines in 2009 when she and her husband Tareq crashed a White House dinner. Since then, Salahi has gone on to appear in "The Real Housewives of D.C." Salahi's latest bid for media coverage came as she was set to appear on the newest season of "Celebrity Rehab" as an addict in need of help.
Like father, like daughter... or is it like daughter, like father? Either way, Radaronline.com is reporting that Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael, has signed on for the next season of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew." Lohan exclusively told the outlet, "I am sorry that my father has continually chosen to speak publicly about our relationship, my mother, my siblings, and my professional team.
In a recent interview with the HuffPost, Celebrity Rehab host Dr. Drew decided to weigh-in on topics ranging from Miley Cyrus acting out, to the Eva Longoria and Tony Parker divorce. Dr. Drew is making the most news with his comments on none other than Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. When asked about what will happen when Brangelina divorce, Dr. Drew had this to say: Just add up a couple things.
