|

sex_rehab_cast_drew_jill

The latest Celebrity Rehab spin-off, Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, will tackle the mostly unexamined world of sex addiction. It debuts Sunday, Nov. 1 at 10/9c. More details are in the press release below, and after that, get a look at the cast of the show on set…

VH1, Dr. Drew and Irwin Entertainment have expanded their documentary series on addiction to examine one of society’s most taboo topics, sex addiction, in the upcoming series Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew. The series is set to premiere on VH1 on Sunday, November 1 at 10pm.

Addictions are nothing new, and most people are aware of those involving alcohol, drugs, and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, but few know about and understand sex addiction. It afflicts roughly 3%-6% of the American population, and just like other addictions, its impact on personal lives can be devastating. The affliction can wreak havoc on the mental and physical health of those afflicted as well as destroy marriages, families, careers and even finances.

Dr. Drew and a team of the nation’s foremost experts on sexual addiction will guide eight patients through an intensive state of the art program. Living together for 21 days, they’ll meet with Dr. Drew in daily one-on-one and group therapy sessions in order to get to the root of their compulsive behavior.

Dr. Drew is a highly respected practicing MD, is board certified in addiction medicine and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at KECK USC School of Medicine, who will once again give viewers an unflinching look at exactly how the rehab process works and what it feels like for participants. Dr. Drew hopes to use his patients to humanize the process and show viewers that treatment is a viable way to break the cycle of addiction.

Beginning Monday, October 26 fans can catch a sneak peek of the season’s first episode on VH1.com – one week before the on-air premiere. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com the morning after they air. Additional video content from Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew including extras from each episode will be available on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile throughout the season.

Sex Rehab With Dr. Drew is executive produced by John Irwin and Bruce Toms for Irwin Entertainment. Dr. Drew Pinsky and Howard Lapides are also executive producing. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, and Noah Pollack are executive producers for VH1.

(FYI, that’s marriage/family therapist Jill Vermeire in the shot above with Dr. Drew.)

During her years in the porn industry, Kendra became a well known adult film star. However, she also became tabloid fodder. (Star magazine and Us Weekly accused her of breaking up Kevin Federline and Britney Spears marriage after a trip to Vegas, for example.) She finally left the adult film industry in 2001 on the verge of a complete breakdown. She fell headlong into alcoholism and was also diagnosed as an agoraphobic with severe anxiety and panic disorders, which introduced the world of prescription drug abuse.

In 2007, Kendra was introduced to Lukas Rossi, winner of Rockstar Supernova, by mutual friends, Dave Navarro and Tommy Lee – and the two immediately clicked. They married 4 months after meeting. Kendra will tell anyone who will listen that Lukas saved her life. It was his love and devotion to her that spurred her to face her personal demons and reach out for help and sobriety.

    Kendra. I have you always in my thoughts and prayers. I too feel my husband saved my life. My demon was cancer and if it were not for him I would not have done the treatment required to live. I take it one day at a time now because that is all we are guaranteed.

  6. Andrea says:

    I am utterly disappointed with the cast members. Most all of them are “Nobody’s”. I was hoping for some high-profile celbs. WOW! I loved the 1st 2 Celebrity Rehabs and Sober House but I am definitely not watching this one. Such a let-down!

  7. ADAM says:

    VH1 IS SSSSSSSSSSSSO BRING LATELY ONE WORLD FRENCHY!!!!!!!

    They don’t need any sex rehabs.

  10. muya says:

    I hope to learn something from this show as I’ve learned things from Celeb Rehab. I don’t need big name stars, I just want to understand what’s going on with these people. Psychology is fascinating.

  11. Leah says:

    It shouldn’t matter whether these people are high profile celebs or not….they have the guts to tell the world about their deepest darkest secrets, and hopefully help others.

    It’ll be some very interesting and informative viewing.

    Way to go you all!

    And…..Kendra is an awesome and amzing person!

  12. me says:

    Is it that people need these kind of programs to feel better about themselves?

  17. Lydia says:

    Oh Arjen, did I LMFAO when reading your comment. The ‘hoi’ just did it. And wie is Joke Bruijs? Ik dacht meer aan patries, en jolanthe….

  18. Tim says:

    I don’t think i wanna see a show like this with Gordon,or Joke Bruijs (is she even alive?;-) But with all these playmates and models, better then a house full of ugly people..

    I expected the opposite, turning everyone in sex-addicted animals.

  24. Hollander says:

    Wat een domme pr0gramma:) I hate it:)

  25. Claudia says:

    The cast (no names, but just their background):

    1. female – Porn actress / Director / Business woman
    2. male – Surfer / Wakeboarder
    3. female – Model / Playboy Playmate
    4. female – Beauty queen / Model / Fashion designer
    5. female – Ex-porn star / Music manager
    6. male – Producer / Writer / Director
    7. female – Supermodel/Reality TV star/Actress
    8. male – Musician / Stand-up comedian

    I don’t know this channel, but they clearly need some “new television”. Sex will score high, so search for a (ex) porn star, some models and a producer….
    They all know how to act (maybe except the wakeboarder), so will this really be a Sex Rehab or just Sex Reality? A flasback to Big Brother…

    For Dutch people: werkelijk lachwekkend dit en belachelijk. Zie het hier in Nederland al verschijnen. Lijkt me inderdaad wel lachen met een Gordon erin, maar dan ook wel graag Joling om het in ieder geval nog kijkcijfers te laten trekken.

  29. rik says:

    this is dik van mienen biegel

  30. abasi says:

    It is nice to see one token black woman on the show. It would be better if the show also had a black man. I will be interested in hearing about what theese people have done to classify them as Sex Addicts.

  31. Rein says:

    Nicole Norain and Amber Smith don’t have to go in sex rehab. Sent them to me, and everything goes good…….;-)

  32. elzee the Gzus phreek says:

    i tried to tell people years ago that there is such a thing as sex/porn addiction but they looked at me as if i was crazy! now i think maybe they were too ashamed/embarrased to admit it because they themselves were addicted!?

  33. Lee says:

    I look forward to seeing new people on VH1. The rehab shows, fit clubs, etc have all been circulating some of the same people. I particularily look forward to seeing Phil Varone, I have seen his Sex, Stand Up and Rock n Roll shows as well as when he’s performed with his previous bands Skid Row and Saigon Kick.

  34. Spike says:

    These are “celebrities?”

  35. Me! says:

    This is a sex rehab!!! Why the hell do mostly all of them look like their on drugs….

  36. andyman says:

    Hallo, wtf, sex addiction? None of the ‘celebrities’ listed here are sex addicts. I only read this because of the so called sex addiction rehab but this is really bs! Or are they expecting/stimulating the ‘celebs’ to start f… like rabbits after a couple days? Then they should have included actual porn stars and not ex porn stars. But then again, that just might be my own sex addcition talking…

  37. Andrea Varone says:

    WAY TO GO PHIL GOOD LUCK

  38. LC says:

    As a close personal friend of Kendra’s.. I can tell you’re going to enjoy this show very much.

    From what I experienced on family visit days, the people pictured above went thru some serious therapy, and life-changing moments.

    You’re gonna laugh, you’re gonna cry.. and hopefully you’ll do some of your own healing.

    I did.
    xoxo

  39. Amber says:

    I find it such a coincidence that I saw this show was about to aire when I myself has recently realized I have a problem with sex. I have had well over 50 sexual partners in the past 14 years, possibly even 100. I am very lucky I have not caught any STD’s seeing that i almost never use condoms. I see this as a major problem and need help. I am hoping this show will give me some tools to use.

  40. john says:

    phil varone is hiilarious!!!

  41. emily. says:

    I think Vh1 should have another season of Celebrity Rehab and Sober House. Those shows were both amazing and inspiring. I would love to watch new seasons.

  42. ridiculousjobposts.com says:

    I can’t wait until people start 13th stepping. You know sneaking into other castmates rooms. I see a couple of bisexuals up there. mmhmm…Girl on girl and girl on ….*grin

  43. Mary says:

    disappointed on the cast members. I was really hoping to see people I have heard of befor. More musicains not porn stars, oh excuss me, ‘ex’ porn stars.

  44. jordan says:

    is that the whole cast like on the commercial one of the girls looked and even sounded like lady gaga except she had black hair

  45. darlene peoples says:

    Whatever happened to annoymity?

  46. abbynormal7 says:

    i wonder how good the surfer dude looks, i would do him!!!

  47. Eric says:

    I am a sex addict and think this show looks really promising. I’m sure the percentage of people addicted to pornography is much higher than the 3-6% listed above for sexual addiction. It’s because of this that I wish you would take the links to any porn sites off this page. They’re unnecessary at best and hurtful at worst.

  48. Goober Smooch says:

    Is this what we get instead of a new Surreal Life? I want wash-ups I recognize: this cast wishes they were wash-ups. What a bunch of nobodies. Come on Vh1, don’t think all the minds you’ve poisoned, and I’m one of them, will drink this swill. Get it together.

  49. Cheryl says:

    It’s about time somebody brought media attention to this. This is running out of control. According to Dr Patrick Carnes, the percentage is more like 8% men and 3%of women however, these figures are only based on those that enter treatment. I would have like to have seen more of the men on this show rather than the women because it is the men who work visually and affects them more everyday.

  50. Lollipops says:

    Why didn’t you get Usher or David Duchovny on this show?! That would make it more interesting…

  51. Joey says:

    I like how watching the show theres commercials of sexual toys and trojan crap.
    its a shame hollywood cant enjoy the simple pleasures of celibacy. no its not hahaha.
    no sex for 21 days is freakn hard for anyone unless your 90. In the end celebs are spoiled and its just entertainment for us to see people go through that.

  52. Tina says:

    Shows like this try to make you understand these people and understand why they act the way they do. There is no excuse to sell your body for sex and physically attack people that you don’t even know. I came from an abusive home as well and I didn’t go and get on drugs, sleep with everybody, or attack people. Kendra Jade didn’t even know me and jumped me in a club one night. I had a check and camera in one hand, a cam-corder in the other hand, and a purse on my arm. We shared a mutual acquaintance and basically because I did not want to hang out with porn-stars, she started making harrassing phone calls to my house, had a friend to spy on me, and when I showed up to see a friend’s band play at a club one night, her little spy called her and told her that I was there and she drove to the club and jumped me out of nowhere. I’m not one to fight, but I’m not scared of a fair fight. It was so cowardly of the *)%&)%*`!~$($~%)~ to jump me out of the blue while my hands and arms were full. Like I said, she never even knew me and I had never spoken to her in my life. She is so trashy that she also spit in my face as I was trying to get out of the door. I don’t think sex-therapy is what she needs. I think she needs therapy on how to stop being a trashy *)%&)%*`!~$($~%)~ and attacking people because she is ashamed of her career and I didn’t agree with what she did for a living and didn’t want to hang out with her. My mother was mentally ill and I was abused, and like I said before, I don’t act trashy like that nor do I care to see a tv show where they try to make you feel sorry for people who do act like that!

  53. Sylvia says:

    i dident think i would like this show at all but it’s good so far i dident think sex addiction was there of course i should not know cuz iam not in to that but damn it’s real it’s there for real it’s crazy but good that the issue is being dealt with and just wanted to say phil is hott !!!

  54. rick b says:

    i am watching now an the surfer i already relate too i have just gone through drug n alcohol treatment treatment my sex addiction out dates my alcohol addiction so i am being open and viewing the show thanks

  55. Joan says:

    While watching what looks to be a serious and promising series on sex addiction, I was surprised to see a commercial for ClubLove where you can “chat with gorgeous singles in your area tonight for free.” Really? Did somebody at VH1 or Comcast actually think this was appropriate?

  56. Niko says:

    It just seem to be a bunch of people I really don’t care about. Amber is the only one I want to watch. No one else is really that important. There were plenty of sex addicts in the past rehab shows and other VH1 shows. Use them. People we can at least relate to. A bunch of porn actresses and a douche who wasn’t even a good surfer in the first place. That’s what we get?

  57. david zagar says:

    this show is an answer to my prayers. bless the patient’s staff,&us all namaste, donny damage

  58. Doug says:

    With the exception of the filmmaker, how are we supposed to feel bad for all these beautiful people? If I was that hot, I would be having safe sex and lots of it. When you are attractive, people want to have sex with you. If you are not married and are safe, what is the issue? Why not show the real sex addicts? I guess awkward looking single guys don’t do anything for ratings which is what will make or break this show in the end really…not what it does to educate and/or help people suffering from this. I am a sex addict.

  59. Rhiannon says:

    I can’t believe all the 1-800-FREE LOVE commercials during several commercial breaks of this show. Is this really a sponsor you want? It seems a bit crazy… maybe you could get the Columbian Cartel to run pro-drug commercials during “Celebrity Rehab,” too.

  60. valerie says:

    I am a sex addict too i never thought it existed. im glad it does and im not alone…. all my friends think im crazy for always wanting to have sex. Im happy theres a actual show for something lke this.

  61. Marcus says:

    Dear Dr. Drew,
    I was watching your new sex re-hab last night(11/01/09), and spotted a beautiful Black woman that works on your staff at your clinic. I would like to know that woman’s name. I’m not a stalker/weirdo, just a fan of beautiful women.

    Thanks,
    Marcus

  62. Stepjaaa says:

    i love sex
    but its not my whole life can u hhelp me

  63. w lee johnson says:

    This has got to be the most desperate, attention grabbing,exploitation I have ever witnessed on TV. These people are all so pathetically hungry for attention they go on the tube to further their careers> Unbelievably shameless!

  64. Glennette says:

    You know, if you read the description of what these scummy people do, you’ll see that they are all successful with possibly the exception of Amber. If they had a serious addiction it would interfere with their lives and success. I haven’t had sex in a year and I get opportunities from men. I’m just above that. If I’m not in a committed relationship, I don’t have some desperate need to fill. I get horny, sure, who doesn’t. Big deal. It goes away. I just don’t feel sorry for “addicts” they are users and selfish. I mean, look at the ^#!_~`^(&~~`(^&** who is married on this show. The woman has a loving husband. After she _+)!!^+%+`)#*_#~~ d herself out on film for years. She’s scum. Penny/Jennifer=scum. The dudes, that surfer, please, it’s all in his head, no one wants `))`*+&^~#@#@$#+ him. This show is a joke. Dr. Drew is a joke.

  65. chris says:

    i am in a wheelchair and i have never wanted sex more then now ……….do i have a problem?????????

  66. SLAYER says:

    Whomever this Jamie Lovett guy is, one thing he’s NOT is a pro surfer. He is not, nor was he ever, even within striking distance of making the pro tour. I’m in the industry, and I can’t even recall ever seeing a photo of him in any of the major mags. Lots of people can do airs, and lots of people win regional comps, and lots of people have small sponsorships. That doesn’t make them “pro”. I don’t know what his deal is with wakeboarding, but don’t insult the world of pro surfing by saying this kook is involved in it.

  67. Craig Becker says:

    What are you doing to help these people overcome their addiction? Will you publish techniques so we can use them to help ourselves or others?
    Thank you.

  68. James says:

    I like the show.
    Jamie Lovett is a Professional Skimboarder. A very good one at that. Skimboarding is where you throw a skimboard down, jump on it with your feet,get out to a wave, then ride it.
    The show reveals how bad sex addiction can get sometimes. Very entertaining.

  69. James says:

  70. green says:

    after watching the first show and realizing I suffer from sex addiction I would like to know where to get treatment for this disease. I was sexually abused at 5 and physically abused my whole childhood. I was also sexually abused for several years by my older brother and feel like sex is the only thing I have to offer men in my life. My job is to please them and then go to the next one. I am a male not really sure if I am gay although I have been ingaging in gay sex for 20 plus years.
    help

  71. Lyndakat says:

    I don’t believe that these people are sex addicts, and I don’t believe there is such a thing, I think what’s wrong with these people is that their brains did not fully develop, and they are mentally handicapped.

    Give me a break, how many of your porn stars are “real” celebrities, if that’s what a celebrity is than 1/2 the country are celebrities. Usually everything ends up being about publicity, and like they( who is they anyways) always say bad publicity is good publicity, how many of these porn stars will be releasing new movies soon after this, we all now the porn industry is hurting, and the musician, when will his new album come out, or when is he going on tour (Brett Michaels) , the models, just can’t get any bookings because they are simply as I would say, Lost their class and now they are trash, sorry ladies, you stopped getting attention because you are no longer on magazine covers, so now you simply do this for the attention it gets you, here is my phychiatrist point of view, try using the rest of your brain and realize that there is more to life than sex, don’t get me wrong, I love sex (with my husband), no complaints here, I’m good at it and I do it like a porn star, but, I have many other things that make me feel good and give me attention.

  72. Mrs. Wright says:

    How much “healing” can these mental attention ^_$@@%(`((_%%(**` scum bags get in a mere three weeks? It’s a stupid show and I’m embarrassed that it’s on TV. People airing their dirty laundry has become much to common. All these people are exaggerating. Two or three of the women are in PORN. It’s their former or current job. The one girl who says she masterbates 19 times a day? Pleeeeeze! These people should be locked up in padded rooms. They grow up w/o morals, w/o religion of any kind, w/o a sense of right or wrong, good or bad. Look at their !*&*$$@#+$_)!!`) ing faces! They are getting paid to do this show. It’s a “show”. They are the “cast”. Each one cast to play a different role. These people should be embarrassed. And the one who has a husband should be at home with him. Stupid ^_$@@%(`((_%%(**` s!

  73. Melba Toast says:

    Damn, this show is fake. Kendra Jade and her stepmother had sex with Jerry Springer. They were also on Jerry Springer’s show as a mother daughter sex duo. Look it up. Also Kendra was supposedly all messed up b/c she was without he husband on the first day of treatment. Oh brother! What does she do when he goes away on gigs? I mean, she’s a big girl, for )@+)*))$)#`)%~## s sake! These spoiled people seriously need to grow up.

  74. Matt says:

    This show finally could help people who like me are addicted to something this culture values so highly and thinks you can’t have enough of! We need help, but doubt we actually have a problem. Our lives suffer significantly. Traces of our pasts define how we got to where we’re at today. I’m not getting my hopes up that this show will be on much longer, or that it will change my life that much. I do think it changed me tonight watching it in the fact I realized I do have a problem. Awareness!!!

  75. aNonnyMoose says:

    “I don’t believe that these people are sex addicts, and I don’t believe there is such a thing…”

    I can ^()$^`(%#+$~@*( ure you there is “such a thing”. It’s usually not about the physical act of sex (at least for women, anyway); it is about equating sex with love, the attention and the feeling of closeness it gives you. Yes, it is a sickness and a case of low self-esteem and a huge need to be loved. (Usually stemming from abuse/neglect from so-called parent(s).)

  76. Memoirs of a Sap says:

    Hey, I found a wife. She’s an ex porn star who has never been able to be faithful in any committed relationship? Yup!She’s all mine! Let’s check out her work. Look at all the filthy depraved acts she has performed on hundreds of unattractive men. That sure is a lot of splooge on her face. Awwwww…how sweet. What a good woman. I wonder if she has a lax attitude about loveless sex acts with strangers? No, no, of course not. It’s clear that she is grounded in a strong moral fiber. What a perfect woman to honor with the sanctity of marriage. I’m so glad Tommy Lee introduced us. Seeing a woman like her walking toward me in pure, pure white. How worthy she is. I know my marriage to Kendra Jade will be the epitome of a faithful and strong marriage. She also is a chain smoker and I love smelling the nicotine on her fingers. I’m sure, she’ll never use me for anyting. People like her are not users. Oh, is she a “music manager” now? What a coincidence! Remember when she had a sex scandal with Jerry Springer and her step mother? Why, yes, having a threesome with Jerry Springer and her stepmother while taping it, helped launched her into porn. I sure got myself a little hustler. I’m such a lucky guy. I’m a muscian, so I guess that makes me a sleeze bucket too, as well as an idiot. Ok, wish us luck. Mmmm…I love her so much I want to hug her so tight and crush her ribs. One last kiss on my Lady’s hand before she departs in to Rehab for sex addiction. Isn’t she just greaaaat. I sure hope Dr. Drew makes it to our GOLDEN wedding anniversary party!

    Finally, someone opens up about sex addiction without it being some brief 60 minute documentary. Maybe now most will understand how sex is the most addictive drug in the world! It has destroyed nations (and rebuilt them ;) but taken out of its proper context it destroys lives. But, who really wants to be cured?

  79. Amy says:

    I was married to a sex addict for many years. In my opinion, this is a much bigger problem than people realize. I am glad to see that VH1 is bringing this issue to the forefront so that this addiction will be better understood by our society today.

  80. rp says:

    I am watching with hope. This show has the potential to be extremely relevant. But will it be? Or is it just another rating pump .. sex is the all time best seller afterall.

  81. Angela says:

    I think this show will be gud i already see that i relate to kendra the most cuz that is my problems

  82. Blair says:

    So, given that they all have something to flog, I’m *!@^#`#*@_)@(%^ uming that although they’re giving up sex, they’re not giving up being (@_&#(*$+@^~))`*~ s.

  83. John M says:

    I happened upon your show. I was deeply moved. I have been struggling with whether or not to accept the diagnosis of porn or sex addict. Seeing the deep way Dr. Drew approaches the pain beneath the addiction makes me feel the honor in accepting the diagnosis and then working with myself and with others to walk the talk and grow to give and receive real love. The show is a beautiful gift to the world.

    From the comments posted, it is clear that some people cannot see beyond their judgements to the suffering the addiction causes. I imagine that at least some of them may have their judgements shaken and their hearts opened by this series. That will be a part of the gift. The other part will be that some who suffer the addiction will come to hold themselves more gently, to see their “failings” in a broad and deep way that can help them find a path to true healing. And some will see that there are good people ready to help them on that difficult path back to life. Thank you again.

  84. Spencer says:

    I’m greatful that the show is bringing attention to the problem of sex addiction. It has destroyed my life. When I hear that there are people, even doctors, who do not believe sex addiction is real, it makes me feel even more hopeless. Surely these please have not suffered from it or they would most certainly believe in the addiction.

    Some who have posted comments here have argued that sex addiction isn’t a real addiction because the particpants on the show are successful. This argument does not hold up. I’ve been able to hold down a job now for over 2 years, and I even finished a 4 year college degree program before that. All the while I have been battling my own sex addiction. The technical term might be: “functioning addict”. In any case, the addiction can range in severity. My addiction interferes with my life in many ways, most notibly, I hate myself, and I don’t enjoy outdoor activities as much as I used to.

    But anyhow…hopefully the show does well. I’m not really into reality shows, but if the people on the show are real, then I sincerely hope that they’re able to overcome their addictions. And this would give me hope.

  85. J. Pierre says:

    Dear Dr. Drew,

    I was browsing through the TV tonight and saw your show on VH1. I saw myself in those people that participated.

    I can identify strongly with the musician. Do you have a book or something that people like myself can read so that we can be cured?

    I would like to be cured of this addiction I have.

    I will like to tell you my story in a simplify version but please do not publish it.

    I am the last of 6 children by my mother side and the last of 4 children by my father side.
    I think that my mother loves me very much but I do not think that my father love me at all.

    He gave my mother money to have me aborted; she took the money but never went through with the abortion. So when I was born he was very very angry and never corresponded with me or her for a some time. They are now married and living together.

    I started being involved in sex at a very early age. We were a bit more financially well off than our neighbors so when their children wanted things from us, my bigger brothers used to let me have sex with the girls who were much elder than me. And very soon I became very good at that. I got Venereal Disease (VD) at the age of 9.

    I cannot remember the number of women I had been intimate with, may be thousands, sometimes going on the train or on the Go Train, I will meet them and have sex and then go to work. Most of the time, it was just once or twice that I would have sex with them.

    I would be walking on the street and meet these women and will go to a hotel or some place and have sex them. Most of the time, I would never see them again. Most of my male friend’s wives or girlfriends I have had sex with.

    I don’t know how I did it but it happened, maybe it’s some sought of signal I look for in these women. I do not know how, to stop.

    I used to have sex with clients in the bank who wanted approval for their loans, my teachers, Immigration officers, bank officers practically anyone who came in contact with me. . It’ was very bad.

    Once I had sex with 14 women in a 24 hour period. I have masturbated almost everyday of my adult life. I first Masturbated on April 18, 1982.
    Sometime I think that there are many persons inside of me all wanting sex.
    When having sex, it is not about the women but something else. In my mind it is as though I am punishing them for being with me. I don’t know if you understand what I am saying, but after having sex with them I will feel disappointed. I will feel guilty with myself.

    Once I went to the Niagara Falls with my wife, I met this woman in the parking lot I went straight into her hotel room and had sex. We did not even had more that a few words.As though she was expecting me. She wanted some water so I left her room to get some things in the shop downstairs, on my way to the grocery I met another woman for the first time and went back to her room and had sex. This had been the strangest experience I had ever had relating to sex.

    There is this compulsion in me to do what I do but I know it is wrong and I want to stop. How do I stop?

    Do you have a book or something that I can read to cure myself?

    This is the first time I am discussing this with anyone. Please do not publish this.

    If you have any suggestion please tell me.
    If people know what I have just said to you they would be very disappointed in me, so you should not discuss this with anyone.

    Thank you.

    Justine

  86. Judy Ann says:

    I’m really intrigued by this particular show and it’s content. I believe I am also a Sex Addict after being sober for many needs. Like it was discussed on the show, this is very difficult to address. I’ve found that total celibacy is the only way.

  87. wendi says:

    I watched the show today & felt really badly for Jennifer Ketcham. She said she felt like a monster for sleeping up to 15 kids when she was a kid. She’s taking all the blame when the other person she did it with was at fault too & she was so sure that took the virginity from these kids, which I think is doubtful. I bet most of them had already experienced sex. Speaking for myself, I was devirginized at 12 as well & for her to think she’s a monster for sleeping with about 15 different people, well I kept track of mine & I was up to 86 on my 16th birthday. I am also a sex addict, she’s no monster & I don’t fell as I am either. We both just got caught up in a world that came easy for us & I highly doubt any of the kids, now men hate her or me for having sex with them. I am glad she is getting help to reazlize she is no monster. I only wish I could get that kind of help, because if I don’t I fear something horrible will happen to me.

  88. miranda says:

    this show has really opened my eyes to what i may become.i was sexually abused when i was 3 to 4 and i viewed porn about 6 or 7 times.the messed up thing is that im 13yrs old.i want to thank Dr.Drew and all of the people there for helping sex addicts and also there couragouse effort for coming out with there life stroies

  89. EP3 says:

    I am hoping Amber Smith does good this time. She has so much to offer the world. I hope Amber makes it.

  90. char says:

    the commercials on this one are mostly sexual in content on product and very exploitive. disappointing this is the tack u have chosen to take

  91. Gaby says:

    Phil Varone is sexy.

  92. Larry O says:

    I’m also in recovery……. and the first episode hit home. When Dr. Drew asked “What’s behind the wall?”it stuck with me all week!

    But tonight ? TOO MANY COMMERCIALS! Frustrating, boring, money making.

    Dr. Drew has a real opportunity to touch a lot of people with this show. At 19 years drug and alcohol sober, I’m finally dealing with my sex addiction and I’m AMAZED at how many people in my 12 step groups are approaching me wanting to know more. Definitely an under diagnosed disease. LESS COMMERCIALS, PLEASE!!!

  93. Randy Bailey says:

    I saw the Celebrity Rehab show seasons ago regarding drug and alcohol addiction, which I felt was a disaster. Out of curiosity, regarding the topic of sex and love addiction, I peeked again. The good doctor Drew just may meander into a 12 step meeting and see just how the wounded healers recover for free and with wonderful results and freedom from addiction. Yep, for free. The celebs that came into meetings a few times seemed drugged and chained to that hospital atmosphere. I am saddened that Drew seems to an opportunist that never has grasped the therapy that aids the inflicted. Peace is promised and can be achieved from Bill Wilson’s good old reliable steps. Call me or email me sometime Drew, and I will meet you for coffee and maybe help to straighten you out about the walking miracles that for a “buck in the basket” and an hour or 2 per day can relieve their torment. Do our community a favor and stretch your knowledge base. Of course when found out, you may just be on the unemployment line, like many of us. Until then…..

  94. Sunshine says:

    Had a long comment, then noticed the insensative comments from the individuals below.

    So,Thanks for the show. Even if it helps one person the rest can keep livein in those Glass Houses’ like Goober Smooch~

    Well Done.

  95. Randy Bailey says:

    For those who are afflicted by Sex and Love Addiction, go to http://www.slaalosangeles.org/ and read about the characteristics of addiction. Then find a meeting to walk into in your area and surrender. It costs nothing and no drugs to ‘calm’ you down while you a going through your withdrawal, which is a real “green” recovery solution. This process of “identification” is the amazing healing force that Carl Jung and other doctors describe. You will find that this Dr. Drew show just may be for entertainment purposes. If you don’t find relief or a Higher Power, we will refund your misery. Namaste

  96. CJ says:

    This show is great, and a 1st in what it is attempting to do. Many of us in this world are/were victims of sexual abuse or experienced sex at too early of an age or BOTH. I am glad that this discussion is happening.

  97. william rogers says:

    dear sir: i discovered your show last night, i am 57 years old and i have struggled with this problem for years, even after four heart attacks and two divorces(i am trying to get a handle on it again right now). i’m hoping your show will give me some support, i’ll keep watching.

  98. MonicaHanna says:

    This reminds me of my child hood, I can’t believe that a decade later this stuff still happens and we’re not catching the abuse! Maybe there could be something done in the public schools? A commity for detecting children in abusive homes at our schools would help!? Because what’s being done now isn’t enough!

  99. moe moe says:

    Kari Ann acted like a spoiled skank the whole time. She is a waste of space!

  100. LORIANN says:

    Kari Ann — Your a spoiled lil punk. It’s very obvious you have a problem, cause you have NO respect for YOURSELF or anyone else. I read you’re getting kicked out! *GOOD* Phil..U seem like a nice guy – GOOD LUCK. Nicole, you’re beautiful – GOOD LUCK. Duncan – You gotta smile more..GET OUTTA that rut.
    Amber==been watchin u on all these shows. It’s amazing to me that you DO what you do.. LOOK at u.. what you have, What you’ve done! You need normal friends, find me == and my girlfriends and friends will be happy to hang with you and show you a NORMAL life!! :)

  101. Joseph says:

    Another compelling show about our human nature gone wrong. We all have something, right. Work too much, play too much, party too much, etc.

    Whether it is beneficial or not it is at least entertaining. Maybe someone will get a message or two from it. http://www.topmodelprofiles.com

  102. may says:

    I am so glad this show is on. I for one have not understood sexual addiction and am getting some insight into it. I have tremendous compassion for most of these people with the exception of Kari Anne. She is intolerable and spoiled.
    Go help someone else and get over yourself, that’s a good way to heal.

  103. lilly says:

    kari ann is UGLY. I hope you didn’t get paid to appear on the show. you are rude, ungrateful and mean – “i need to find my hair extensions” forget it honey they won’t help- you are gross. How you ever got to be teen USA is a mystery. You must be a great actress- might as well start your porn career now. TRY BEING NICE. you aren’t a teenager anymore. YOU ARE CORRECT ABOUT ONE THING- we ARE LAUGHING AT YOU- you are a joke. your parents must be seriously ashamed.

  104. randall says:

    This is one of the best shows on VH1 the only issue that I have with it is that it seems to be scripted I mean come on sex rehab with porn stars and musican I can exspect to see some sort of porn called sex rehab with dr. screw or something I dont think everyone is there to get better more less there for the camera time

  105. HETHURZ32 says:

    Hey, on last night’s repeat, the lady (Jill?) said something about “affirm ~“^@+%+~!@+&(^ ert” and then something else. Does anyone know what she said? I’m needing that quote/phrase ASAP. Thanks!

  106. MIKE-W says:

    about Kari Ann, to everyone who puts her down, try to understand that she is in so much pain that she will do anything to push others away to prevent her from facing that which hurts her the most…..it takes one to know one !!!!!!

  107. china crawford says:

    kari ann needs to just take her stank attitude home she is ugly with or without makeup dont really see how she won any pagent with that ugly attitude

  108. Caroline says:

    Phil Varone is so sexy GOSH he is so freaking fine!

  109. m. thompson says:

    I AM SO SICK OF AMBER SMITH….. WHAT ABOUT YALL???? SHE WILL ALWAYS BE ADDICTED TO SOMETHING.. REMERBER HER MOM… THIS CHICK NEEDS LONG TERM TREATMENT AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC EYE.. SHE LEARNED FROM THE BEST HER MOM. HOW TO ALWAYS BE THE CENTER OF SOMETHING OR ANYTHING SURROUNDING HER. I KNOW PEOPLE JUST LIKE HER… ITS A CON ..TRUST ME. IF IT WAS A SHOW ABOUT A ADDICTION TO WIGS, SHE WOULD RUN OUT AND BUY A FEW AND CLAIM ADDICTION.. LIKE MOM LIKE DAUGHTER.. SHE LOVES THE CAMERA AND BEING IN THE LIME LIGHT ,THATS HER TRUE ADDICTION..she is scared to be out of the limelight.. ENOUGH ALREADY….

  110. Billy says:

    No Lie, I just saw them air a phone sex commercial in the middle of this show. How evil is that?

  111. brandon says:

    your show opened some doors in my life. big fan and hope every one pulls threw. yall be good lol

  112. d-rock says:

    why not make a rehab show about people who are addicted to watching rehab shows about washed up addict losers who are not even has-beens more like never was’s

  113. James Curtis says:

    Thank-you VH1. Love & Sex Addiction is a disease that kills. Like all other addicitions, it is about feeling good…avoiding responsibilities or uncomfortable feelings.

    Thank God for the 12 step program S.L.A.A. (Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous) & for treatment centers like the Meadows. Unlike AA or NA, this is a disease that forces one to deal with family of origin issues and feelings. The only way out of pain is to go through the pain.

    Codependency is where ALL addictions come from. Many try to get their self-esteem from relationships, their work or by people pleasing. The answer comes from within…we must learn how to love ourselves & the importance of a relationship with a Higher Power.

    Melodie Beattie, when she came out of rehab asked what she must to stay sober, the counselor’s said, “Identify your feelings, feel your feelings, and learn how to detach from your feelings.”

    Thank-you VH1 for helping de-stigmatize this disease… how many have killed themselves because they were not aware of something called codepenedency, or love & sex addiction.

    I have been in therapy for 1 1/2 years for love codependency & love addiction. I have been in SLAA for 1 year 4 months. The pain of rejection became so bad, I tried to take my life in July…I now take this disease seriously…I must stay away from bottom line behaviors (contacting the qualifier who broke my heart). One day at a time.

    My self-love and self-esteem are growing day by day. In a relationship, I am whole & sufficient without the other.

  114. James Curtis says:

    Thank-you VH1. I attend a 12 step SLAA (Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous) group. Love addiction kills. I used to get my self-esteem from my relationships, my job and being a people pleaser.

    When the girl of my dreams dumped me, I was devastated and went into deep depression. I found a therapist & started attending SLAA. It saved my life.

    Learning how to love myself, how to be comfortable being by myself and how to identify feelings, feel those feelings & to detach from them is an important life skill.

    I also attend a codependancy annonymous 12 step group as well.

    I am not perfect, but I am excellent.

  115. D. Renee says:

    Amber,
    I just saw the previews for the next show. In the preview they are asking you to remove your makeup. You said, that without makeup you look like a boy. Amber, with a sincere heart I say, you in no way look like a boy. If you could stand in front of yourself and look at the beautiful woman that you are. I don’t know how much of these shows are scripted…my words are not scripted. You are beautiful as you are…

  116. bree says:

    Kari Ann is spoiled, rude and low class. The best help for her is a nice baseball bat to the head.

  117. anna belle says:

    this show has opened my heart and eyes to the truth i have been trying to uncover for so long about myself. i do believe i am addicted to love. addicted to trying to love. it is not necessarily sex addiction but all the shades of grey regarding this issue makes it hard to say exactly where i am in the mix. i know i am addicted to the feeling of longing and f being rejected and i am even more addicted to the anticipation of love and the denial or rejection of any kind of intimate relationships.
    this show has had a profound effect on my understanding of the dangerous patterns i choose over and over again.
    thank you for this show. thank you for shedding light on something that most of us do not totally understand and are trying to get a hold on to improve our futures.

    i live i n nyc and have been actively trying to find a love addiction group, but have been unsuccessful. if anyone knows of one, please let me know.

    best!

    about Kari Ann, to everyone who puts her down, try to understand that she is in so much pain that she will do anything to push others away to prevent her from facing that which hurts her the most…..it takes one to know one !!!!!!

    Oh shut up already. Theres no ‘understanding’ the ‘pain’ shes in. Shes a spoiled brat who thinks her looks warrant her whatever she wants, and when she doesnt get her way, she turns into a whiney c*nt. ‘I havent even paid my bills or done my laundry or gotten my hair extensions’…what a crock of sh*t….she just wants to be able to leave, and then come back, because , as usual, she feels she shouldnt have to play by the rules. Not sure if you folks are aware- but she was on Howard Stern last week- and she made well over 50k for going on this show- so, for that kind of money, you’ll get zero sympathy from me. Spoiled little brat. She needs a kick in the @$$, not someone to cave to her.

  119. Shawna says:

    It is such a good thing that I am not on this show. I would kill Kari Ann. I think it is really unfair that she is treated so much differently then everyone else. What a BRAT!!!!!!! I could not deal with her at all! I think everyone on the show needs congrats for not killing her and having to deal with her on a daily basis.

  120. Salvador Dali's Therapist says:

    Kari Ann is freaking nuts! When are you going to drug test her, she is clearly going through withdrawals and why are you spoiling her she needs a swift kick in the @_^)(#(~^(#~*^_ the people who really want the help are being distracted and on a side note Dr. Drew how much have you made exploiting the problems of other people? I wonder what your dirty secrets are? Are you man enough to look inside yourself?

  121. Elle says:

    Ewwwww… that Kari Ann is sooooo disgusting. I have never seen such an immature selfish witch in my life. What does she think that she’s a queen because she’s a pimp? She is going to have a HARD life if she thinks this is how you treat people. I know this is bad of me, but I can’t wait to watch her crash and burn. You know that she will be in the news again… next time probably for being arrested for something. I think I will have to pray for this girl just to cancel out my negative feelings for her. And come on… it is SOOOOOO obvious that she is a drug addict who is NOT SOBER!!! That sex tape with her and Dane and Rebecca is so pathetic. They are all living like losers there. That Rebecca killed a little boy, and this is how she is living her life??? The whole picture is very disturbing. Listen Kari Ann… we would all like to act however we want and do whatever we want whenever we want to, but we learn that that is not how life is. Grow up.

  122. Dustin says:

    Kari Ann is an annoying,ugly pig and I wish she would go crawl back under a rock….

  123. Stephenie TX says:

    I truly believe in all of you guys :) Just stay strong and try to fight for what it is right..Which is ultimatly your happiness and health… And Dr.Drew is such an awesome guy :) He really puts his heart and soul into helping heal your wounds..Sometimes I wish I could talk to Dr.Drew just because he seems so in tune with the human emotional well being.. I believe in guys and look forward to seeing you pull through :)

    Man, is Amber ~)^`$%!((+)*)“^ ed up or what.But, she’s still hot, hope she will get together with Kari or Kendra on the show.

  125. Theresa says:

    What about a dress code? Why is Kari Ann allowed to wear jeans that are too low and show her butt crack?

  126. Denise says:

    I’ve been watching this show since it aired, and if I had to spend 1 second with Kari Ann, I think I’d go bonkers. Never in my life have I seen such a selfish, spoiled, self centered little brat! My 12 year old daughter behaves better than Kari Ann!

  127. Drina says:

    I’ve never seen such crap in my life…
    “Oh..I can’t take my make-up off because I’m not pretty without it!” I mean..ladies..how about ripping off your plastic boobs, noses, cheek implants and lipo and trying to let the world see you as what you were before you let every man in the universe )~(%!$@(#~)$!&`& you senseless?

    I can’t take off my eyeliner, cause maybe I won’t be as )~(%!$@(#~)$!&`& able? And what is Dr. Drew’s problem with allowing this garbage? How about putting all of them in brown jumpsuits with no makeup or hair extensions so they stop “tempting” eachother while pretending to get well?
    This is ludicrous…Strip them all down without plastic surgery, tattoos, hair extensions, and trendy threads and lets see whats what.
    A total joke..

  128. Hey D. Renee, Stupid says:

    Hey D. RENEE, get a life! Amber does not REALLY think she looks like a boy! And if she does, she is an idiot and WHO CARES. I !*(++**+@&!!~#! URE YOU that Amber is not reading these comments and doesn’t give a !&~&#@&)*^^_***_ about what a nobody to her like you think. This show was taped months ago!

  130. Connie says:

    RE: Keri Ann- Just because her behavior is annoying, does not mean she is worthless or ugly or whatever. She behaves the way she does because she FEELS worthless and ugly.

    She is hard to watch, but it seems the most hurt and damaged people are the hardest to help and understand.

    What kind of rehab do we all need to treat the fact that the only way we can deal with people is by judging them harshly? Let’s all just have a heart.

  131. Derek says:

    I think the show is pretty the lamest thing DR Drew has done so far. The cast minus Amber is horrible especially that rude,disrespectful,unreasonable,irrational,stuck up snobby, brat Peniche.How can someone thats not even hot act like that?

  132. Scott says:

    I have #)~%$_*(@)*%~&^ essed Kari Ann Peniche and after observing her extreme rudeness and disrespect, immaturity that is off the charts, her me me meitis and shocking ignorance. My diagnosis is that she is a first class rude disrespectful immature narcissistic spoiled rotten b*%ch. There is an extremely ugly person inside there that is crying out for a swift kick in the *ss. Treatment: provide it and send her &%$*~%+@))%`_#*+$ ng and not give her a second thought.

  133. Lynn says:

    Kendra is as bad as Kari Ann. Just in a different way. KariAnn is B—-, but Kendra you need to stop crying so much. No one but you seems to have a problem with Keri Ann. You need to stop running around trying to get the whole place against her. If its not good for you,and you just cannot take her, then just leave. Keri Ann, your attitude is sooo bad. It is not hard to believe you don’t have any friends. Dr. Drew looks like he just cannot figure out what to say to you sometimes.

  134. Linda says:

    Kindra and Duncan you two are drama. I got sick of watching Kendra crying about how she can’t take KariAnn (who is a b—-), its not good for her. So leave then. Don’t sit there and try to get the whole house against her. Your the only one who really has a problem with her anyway. Keri Ann you have a BAD attitude. You are
    a b====

  135. Nina says:

    I really don’t like how Kari Ann acts. She has a really bad attitude. I really feel sorry for her though it seems like she has a lot of head problems. All of the women on here are absolutely gorgeous. I’m a big fan of Amber Smith. I love her!!

  136. Guy says:

    There should be a show for wanna-be sex addicts. I can’t believe some guy is on there complaining about having had 3,000 sex partners as though it were a bad thing.

  137. Apache Gurl says:

    Kari Ann: You are the most repulsive, selfish, childish, narcissistic, spoiled, whiny, self-absorbed, rotten, irritating, obnoxious, rude, surly, ugly, nauseating, melodramatic troll EVER!! GO HOME! In addition, you are completely stupid — what’s the point of being there if you’re not going to participate and if you are going to require that everyone caters to your annoying *+^+^+_`~!$$++(* while you are a snot to everyone)? Go home and be an addict, dumb-ass! Who the hell cares! Others are trying to actually improve themselves, and make a difference — and you’re just a boil on the butt of humanity. Oh, and by the way, you might want to buy some pants that you can actually tuck your disgusting fat rolls into — no one needs to see that ugly mess.

  138. Eat a goat says:

    Kari Ann needs to be thrown off the show. Put someone on there who wants genuine help.

    Kari Ann you are a drama )$!&__!~$*_#%@`%( and ugly skank. Cover your ugly mug and get off the show, you immature nasty, clueless moron!

    Phil, you were fun in L.A. – glad to know I was girl 2,567!!

  139. GJohnson says:

    OMG! Kari Ann is a hot mess!!! I have never seen such a spoiled baby in my life. It almost seems as if she uses her troubled past as a bridge for getting things. Like for example, she acts like this…I’m having a hard time b/c I was abused, can I have some juice when I wake up!! PPPLLLEEEAAASSSEEE!!!! Everyone has to deal with the hand they were delt with Kari Ann. I have also had my share of hard times (specifically my father’s death when I was 6, my sister was 3, and my brother was 3 weeks old!!!) But I have always tried to see the light at the end of the tunnel and some days it’s a pretty dim light, but it’s always there. I know Dr. Drew you would argue and say that Kari Ann needs to release these feelings and such…… But she also needs to realize that basic social skills are needed by everyone. Even when you are having the worst time in your life, does not mean you have any right to treat others as if they are no more important than the gum that stuck to the bottom of your shoe. I really respect Amber. Even though she is having quite a time, she nevers forgets how to treat others with respect and kindness they deserve. Especially in a situation such as Sex Rehab, you almost have to be extra sensitive of others, because everyone is vulnerable and hurting. Kari Ann you can take your “Princess Requests” and shove them!!!! I am sorry for your past and how it has effected your present and future. But acting like a spoiled brat will leave you with no friends and an even deeper feeling of sadness and lonliness. Maybe it’s something for you to think about!!!

    WOW!!!! Dr. Drew is the greatest. He saved my life. Fifteen or so years ago, while I was watching the Dr. Drew and Adam show, a girl (like myself), who was attracting the same type of bad men over and over, was so distraught, Drew actually left his chair in the middle of the show to help the girl. His advice to her was to get professional help. I identified with her so much, I took the advice he gave to her. He turned my life around, but like Amber, I have so many demons to quench, I soon fell into other addictions; and, here he is advising me again, and I am sure, so many others. I thank him for his care and patience, and all the brave famousities for their candidness and willingness to share their @~%!@)!%$`+@$_$~ ed up lives with all of us. It’s about time someone had the balls to do a show like this.

  141. Alex Cecil says:

    Ive been struggling not to throw something at my tv when Keri Anne appears and smarts off by having a smart +`(`$!~&(!&$`@! comment, rude undertone, or just scarcastic remarks. She is narsocistic and unconsiouslt wants all the attention on her. She will begin to address his addiction when she figures out there is such thing a negative attention. I know that her need for attention only fuels her need for sex.. and she gets her attention “fix” from a male by engaging in sexual activities. If she would learn to communicate properly and have an intelligent conversation with someone she would have to resort to sex to recieve that attention. Everyone else seems to realize the importance and significance of their role on the show and how they can be a role model for others struggling. There is always one drama queen or the person you love to hate..
    I wanted to thank Amber for her stories and opening up because I spoke to my father the day before he passed and had just moved out of the house.. it was just him and myself. He had just gotten out of the hospital a few days before and was doing better until I calle don a Sunday and he said he wasn’t feeling as well as he had been. The next morning i left my apartment he had helped fix up for me, I went to take him leftover pasta… I entered my childhood home to find my world, my daddy, cold and hard in his chair. I relate to Amber because I model and have struggled with some addictions of my own.. I also had a mother that exposed me to prescription drugs. She has changed her life and no longer abuses drugs.. it was perfect timing.. She started to become a parent right before my father passed. He was my everything.. He had two purple hearts, built Playland Toy Stores, worked on the railroad, inventor, and was a R.N. (the one person you can ask anything and they have the answer and always had something positive or constructive to say to me.
    Thanking all of you for having the courage to tell your stories and expose yourself on tv for others to learn, grow, and get inspiriation from.

    I watched the first two shows of this series as well as the first and second celebrity rehabs. Of particular interest to me is the case of Amber Smith. Wow, this woman is really beautiful (not just sexy beautiful-which all will acknowledge) dah, but beautiful inside. She seems to be like the little girl who was always lead down the path and usually the wrong path. Then when she grew up it seems that that was the past that was destined for her. However, that’s BS. I really admire Dr. Drew and his staff. Poor Amber has been the puppet for many a sick individual all throughout her life and just got caught up in it. Whether it was free drugs at first to drugs that came with strings attached (SEX) and or just friends to be able to score one or both. And what kind of friends are these really. In the end there is this 38 year old woman who is trying to peace it all together who NOW has to depend on her last vesiges of LOOKS to keep her and her Mom’s bellies fed and a roof over there head. By now NO MAN would marry her or he would be the laughing stock of Hollywood. I know that you shoose the path you take inevitably but how much more can this woman take. Then I think, why does she do these4 shows? Does she get paid to appear or is the care and after-care free. I would like to understand the incentive (other to get better) of appearing on these shows. And why does Amber feel she has to take care of her Mother at this point who appears to be the ultimate Mooch? Is it because she really loves her Mother or were they drinkin’ buddies at one time?? She seems like she gets it when she is in group and in the one on one’s. But put her back outside where she is unprotected and -Wham_ she reverts. I have to say that it is refreshing to see that she has not relapsed on the drinkin’ and druggin’. She wants to be independant but does she really?? People who are around her always want something from her-so she must be extra vigilante to keep up those walls-strictly from a safety perspective. I do see now how the SEX ADDICT is different from the drug or alcoholic in that this is down to the bare bones “sex is a good thing” kind of mentality except when one uses or abuses it as a tool. It’s more easily displayed and accepted that a woman would become addicted to sex. My question to Dr. Drew is would these women consider themselves to be “nymphomaniacs”?? What really hit me was when Amber said she would get in her car and cruise for a guy. Man doesn;t she know the danger she is putting herself in. You end up soing that in Texas and you disappear. An admirer of all of the shows especially this one. Hang in there Amber, I’m prayin’ for you. Sometimes that’s all one can do from so far away but I will attest it does work. Thanks All. Michael I.

  143. college boy says:

    Oh my god Amber Smith! You are just the most gorgeous gal around. I’m not usually into serious drug users but damn I’ve seen you on these shows and I’m like, “Damn, she’s is fine!”. My names Tom I’m 23 and I’m about to finish up an Econ degree in Va. Holla if you want some company.

  144. Katie says:

    keri ann is the most selfish and spoiled )*&(^&_^~*`!_`$_^ i have ever seen. Why would you go on the show if you don’t want help and u degrade everyone that is there to help you. She is always playing the victim and always thinks people are attacking her. I got news for you hunny playing the victim your whole life only makes you worthless and thats why you have these problems everyone has problems )*&(^&_^~*`!_`$_^ over it. The world does not revolve around you! Just cuz she is in pain and needs help does not give her the right to be disrespectful and rude to everyone around her, that is selfishness and just plain immature grow up already skank!!

  145. Terry says:

    Does anybody have the song list to the background songs on “Sex Rehab” showings?

    thanks!

  146. Beverly says:

    I just don’t understand why you guys continue to allow Kari Ann to act to way she is. It seems to me that everyone else is there to help themselves and all she is doing is sucking the energy out of the rest of the group. She has no intensions of joining the group and trying to work on the problems that brought her there, that is abundantly clear, or am I the only on who sees it. Well I wish everyone a recovery, however the saying goes if there is one bad apple in the bunch it will ruin the whole bunch. If you would get rid of Kari Ann I do believe the rest of the group would have a better chance at recovering, not to mention the fact that their days wouldn’t be as stressful and they may actually be able to concentrate on what they came there for. Good luck guys!!!!!!!

    Dear Dr. Drew and Crew,

    I just wanted to say thank you for this program. My ex-husband was a sex addict, and after years of being seperated from him I have a new understanding and peace around his addiction and the impact his addiction had on me. The behaviors he displayed as a result of his addiction were both hurtful and embarrassing to me, and I found I was unable to talk about it. I believe this show will allow a platform for the public to be able to better understand sex addiction, as well as aide those who, like myself, blindly had to deal with the disease’s hidden side affects.

    Amber Smith has that natural beauty about her. there are people in this world that are naturally beautiful. And she is one of them.. Up there with Brooke Shields, Drew Barrymore, or other natural beauties

  151. mk says:

    Kari needs to get with the program and quit being so difficult.She thinks everyone is against her and acts like a spoiled brat.She makes me sick to look at

  152. lightfighter says:

    Kari Ann is a spoiled shallow lil girl.She is bringing to much drama to people who have enough to deal with as it is.She truly makes me sick to my stomach.I thought beauty queens had more depth and character than what she has.Who ever crowned her was wrong!

  153. siobhan says:

    Keri Ann reminds me of a feral kitten I had. It wanted to be petted and taken care of but would draw blood whenever anyone went near it.

    Keri Ann’s problem seems more like Borderline Personality Disorder. And I don’t think she’s a good fit with the stated goals of this show.

    She is too destructive to be around people who are learning how to open up.

  154. Elizabeth says:

    I love this show. The drama is insane and intense that it makes you crave for more. Every girl in this shpw is amazing gorgeous. <333 And Phil Varone.. Man, he is F I N E! :D But to my point. I love this show and I’m ready to watch it every week it comes on.

  155. Nestor says:

    I suspect that I have a sexual addiction. I saw Dr. Drew on TV and I would like to know if I can contact him in any way. Does he have a practice where I can meet with him?
    English is my second language and because of this I still have some language barriers, so I also would like to know if he has somebody in his team who speaks Spanish?

  156. annie says:

    i don’t even know who these people are.

  157. Connie says:

    Kari Ann is a piece of work and I don’t mean that in a good way. She needs someone to bring her a glass of juice in the morning to get her out of bed?! Are you f’ing kidding me?! I’m sorry, but isn’t she 25 years old? How about growing up a bit Kari Ann? What a spoiled *%(&_&@+!+%*_*+#_

  159. Wendy says:

    Kari Ann is very annoying, spoiled and disruptive to the entire group. Why should she have orange juice handed to her in the morning by staff while everyone else looks on. She attends group (when she can get out bed) and all she does is piss everyone off. If I was in this group, I would of left because of her special treatment. It is beginning to wear on everyone that is actually here to change. She acts like a princess and I can’t stand her. I personally have attended a rehab program and I grew up in the AA program since I was a child. However, I have never met anyone so selfish. Please get rid of her. Sometimes you have to sacrafice one to help everyone else.

  160. Hi I am Dan & I am an Addict says:

    To the cast of Sex Rehab. I would like to thank you for your bravery in coming out to the public like this. I know when I had to admit to my addiction and behaviorial problems, I was comepletely ashamed and didn’t want to deal with it. I wanted several time to take my life so that I would no longer have to feel the pain that I have caused and created for myself. I hope that with your bravery and willingness to share what you have had to go through to get to a common peace with your self and the others you love around you , that your bravery will allow the millions of others that are struggling with this disease and are able to get the help they are looking for to rid this &!!*+)_#!_(!+(%!@(* of a monster that strips you of life.

  161. Laveau Amistad Truth says:

    Dear Dr Drew-

    I am handicapped from cerebral palsy and I am a genetic alcoholic {genetic from both sides of the tree}. I have been in recovery for nine years. I admire you for your work with addicts in treatment. I have an older brother whom is addicted to heroin. He is still out there using. I have started watching the “Sex Rehab” teevee show on VH1 and I find it really really interesting! Keep it up!

    Yours,
    Laveau T.

  162. TVannie says:

    This show really deals with some horrifying childhood trauma. I feel so badly for these patients and some of them are carrying so much guilt I can’t imagine how they feel.

    I never took any of these rehab shows very seriously before, but this is so different. I hope Dr. Drew can help them,

    On the other hand, what is with Kari Anne thinking everyone is laughing at her? Every time someone looks at her, she accuses them of laughing at her. She’s just not that damn funny.

    And then she has to have someone bring her juice to get out of bed!! I know she has a lot of problems and I feel sorry for her, but she’s really over the top and it’s effecting the other patients. I think they should ask her to leave until she is serious and wants help.

  163. Mercury says:

    Kari Ann could not tell the truth if it was written on her head in 2″ letters. How evasive can a person be? If the show wanted drama they got it with her. She actually ruins the whole experience for me and I sure for others. The other patients probably would not mind if she DID go home. She needs to go to “shrink” – what a loser.

  164. BR says:

    Kari Ann really does want to be a part of the group, but I believe exactly what she says that she “doesn’t know how”. She doesn’t know how to let someone close or trust anyone. You can see her start to come out, and start to join the group and get with the program, and then she gets scared and puts up her defenses. We’re all products of our environments, and she obviously came from a toxic environment. HANG IN THERE, KARI ANN!! I really hope Dr.Drew & Jill don’t use her for ratings and are talented enough to help her.

  165. Fudgies says:

    Is Kari Ann ever going to complete her evaluation with the psychiatrist?
    Poor Dr. Drew, I wonder if he purposely wears a stethoscope whenever he talks to her to ~)*%+`_~*%*)@%& ert the fact that he is a doctor :)

  166. Jade says:

    Kari Ann – can you scream (((((((((BIPOLAR SCHIZOPHRENIC))))))). Nope. You can’t. Already forgot what you were arguing about.

  167. Chuck says:

    Wow, what an enlightening show I would like to have more information on programs like this in Colorada.

  170. london richardson says:

    Kerri Ann does not deserve special treatment she is a narcissistic princess and needs to grow up and realize it’s not all about her.

  171. Alan Brewer says:

    This is interesting.I never thought sex was an addiction.Just a normal emotional biological reaction,no matter if your Straight,Gay or Bisexual are not we all the same in this department,in this category.I believe all sex is normal,Straight,Gay or Bisexual,as long as all parties are consenting adults over 18.

  172. JohnBHonest says:

    Ok heres my take, First off Kari Anne is a total &_`+&$(#*+*((^_^( Cut and dry!! She is disrespectful to everyone on this show by taking center stage with rude and arrogant behavior. She is not a victim of a bunch of horrible things ..she has been placed on a pedestal because she thinks she is better than everyone else. Thats just the honest truth. There is never and excuse for the way she talks to the nice Lady who brings her juice in the morning trying to cater to her every little DIVA demanding needs.

    She is a perfect example of everything that makes me sick about narssisitic people in this world!! Shes not a team player and she has no respect for anyone who had reached out to her, STOP enabling her to continue her repulsive primadonna behavior people. She’s jsut mean and angry and disrespectful. ( Oh I see your laughing at me, I see you smiling) MANIPULATING QUEEN!!! She is so easy to read!!

    She doesn’t need your pity.. she needs to see the real world full of people in real pain who may not live another day.
    DUNCAN you are a beautiful man!!! Your story breaks my heart the most. I have never been so moved by anyone on this show as you. I am praying for a miracle in your life, YOU ARE AN AWESOME SURVIVOR and I have so much respect for your courage and honesty, you are helping many of us out there who can relate with you.

    Jennifer is also an amazingly honest and brave woman to come out to the public with her struggle and I respect her so much. My best to all of you your beautiful and heroes to those of us who struggle, thanks for being real! God bless!

  173. Don Harris says:

    Why did my post get tossed?

  174. mrstor says:

    The only reason I feel bad for these people is the fact they want to be on TV so bad that they will make *!^@@(~+&!()+@^ es out of themselves. They are all losers!!!!!!! If they really had a problem they should have gotten help privately, they went on a show for their 15 minutes!!!!!!!! LOSERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  175. alan brewer says:

    I send a comment yesterday it was not posted.I do not believe sex is an addiction it is a physical and emotional biological need.No matter whether your Sraight ,Gay or Bisexual sex is a good and normal thing.As long as all involved are consenting adults over 18.

  176. Donna says:

    I know it is easy to hate Keri Ann for the behavior seen on the surface. I just want to say that while I am not a doctor, I have a step-daughter and sister in-law who have both been diagnosed w/BiPolar disorder. My exposure to this disorder through research, listening to doctors and friends and relatives who are directly affected tells me that Keri Ann’s sex addiction is the least of her problems and possibly only a byproduct of something more severe. My step-daughter who has abused drugs and behaved in a combative way most of her life has often felt that people were laughing at her when no one had even cracked a smile and felt paranoid that she was being talked about and has been argumentative, often walking away from what she doesn’t want to hear when she is near the end of a manic phase. Once on proper meds, she was embarassed and couldn’t believe she had acted that way. Sexually agressive behavior is also a characteristic of the bipolar person in a manic phase. They are always ashamed of the behavior when they come back down from the manic high. My sister in-law who was raised to be a decent woman went off on a dramatic emotional roller coaster that led to lies and drama involving everyone, suicide attempts and even cheating on her husband. Once she was diagnosed and treated after a month long stay in a mental hospital, she was transformed into the woman she had be raised to be but, now bears the shame of infidelity which she would not have done in a normal state of mind. Keri-Ann reminds me of Britany Spears and I hope she gets the same help to have a normal life.

  177. BB says:

    I hope for Kari Ann’s sake she begins to let her walls down and work to become more self-aware. I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder a few years ago when I was a patient at an eating disorder clinic for bulimia. I can relate very much to some of the people on the show–I was raped when I was younger and used sex as a form of regaining the control that was taken from me. I went through a lot of therapy and now I no longer resort back to my maladaptive behaviors due to a lack of developed coping skills. It is far from easy though. It is so much easier to use an easy fix to cover up the pain, but that is only a temporary fix. That does so much more damage in the long run.

  178. KindraF says:

    Well, it’s not unusual. And again, that’s one of the things that the group therapy process can bring that part of her out and have her work on it with other people. Really, the label “loner” means “inability to connect and be intimate with other human beings.” That’s really what it boils down to with her. Nicole is much more of a love addict than a sex addict, so really it’s an intimacy and attachment disorder. She truly wants to be in a relationship, but she doesn’t know how to connect and be vulnerable and have the healthy intimacy, so it’s easier to just shut it all down. She talks about the revolving door: people come in and out of her life, and it’s really painful for her. I think Nicole really did want to connect with people, but her whole life has been about surviving on her own and taking care of herself. So it’s really scary for her to trust other people and open up and be vulnerable. And I don’t know what shows up in future episodes, but her fear of being intimate and not feeling safe and letting her guard down comes out as anger at certain points also. I don’t know if that’ll show up, but it did come out.

  179. Show lover says:

    I really enjoy Dr Drew’s produced show including sexual addiction one airing now. But I am having BIG problems with one commercial account “D&G time or watches” something airing a commercial showing a sexual promisculous threesome (2 males & 1 female)on a couch airing during this show about people getting over sexual addictions, maybe just like the one featured during this commercial spot. Dr Drew stop this….

  180. Donna says:

    I don’t know about Schizophrenia but, I agree w/Jade about the possibility that Keri Ann is Bipolar. I know several people including my step-daughter and sister in-law who have been diagnosed. Inappropriate use of sex for a bipolar person is part of the manic phase. Treat the bipolar disorder and the sex problems will be resolved. My step-daughter spent her 20′s ruining her life w/drugs, to many sex partners resulting in unwanted pregnancies and blowing any money she got her hands on and jepardizing her jobs. After finally getting professional treatment and meds, at 30 she is now living a normal and productive life. However, she will always carry the humiliation over the drama, devastation and hurt she caused her family and she often avoids contact with them. She can’t believe she ever did the things she did and in her right mind she would not have.

    It is so easy to hate these people when you look at their behavior on the surface but, after proper treatment and meds they are able to improve and often cannot believe the way they acted before they were on meds. I know Keri Ann might be good for the ratings but the girl needs to be treated for the real problem.

    Wow Kari Ann! You just don’t get it. This is the problem with women getting what they want in life because they are (or used to be) beautiful. I’ve never seen such an un-intelligent human being, with NO awareness of rationale! It’s not that you are pretty on the outside, it’s how glaringly ugly you are on the inside that is overwhelming. All you are, are your looks. Your about as deep as a birdbath. You have no friends, and no relationships because you spent so much time in love with yourself that you’ve spurned everyone who has ever been near you. You need the most work. It takes heart, humility, and drive, and you are so so lacking in these fields that I don’t see you ever becoming a decent person.

  185. Isis says:

    This show is a scam~The therapist working with Dr. Drew is showing cleavage. Most of the patients (female) are showing cleavage and %@~!!(^(*@!!%#@ They are to cover up. That is part of the problem. American women are de-valued and many in other countries have no respect for their unflattering behavior and appearance. Women of a declining county always lost their integrity and honor as the power wained. Dr. Drew is a sell-out and no longer a respectable healer. This is TV and I suppose, “Programming”. Maybe he sold is soul for ratings and payoff.

  186. Lisa says:

    I want to say Thank You! to Phil Varone. Phil inspired me to stay strong with my own addiction battle when he said “Why did you die Mom, Why did you leave me”
    I’ve been struggling with meth for years. I am currently 2 weeks into sobriety, a month is the longest I’ve gone. I burst into tears cause I would hate for my 7 year old son to feel the same pain. Thank You Phil for being a reminder to me that I want nothing more than to be a part of my son’s life. It really helps with the craving to relapse.
    XoXo

  187. Venus says:

    I have to say I’m disappointed that in the “art therapy” segment, there was not a licensed art therapist, but a clinical psychologist. Art therapist try so hard to gain recognition and to make a name for themselves in the world. It would have been a great opportunity for art therapy to be on TV and instead, it was just a clinical psychologist. Seriously, there’s not an art therapist willing to be on camera?

  188. DS says:

    Keri Ann should be all the cure any one needs for sex addiction, she is such a turn off in every way. Her personality is the worst of all, I feel bad for the rest of the cast members that she was chosen to be in this group. It’s one thing when people get it but continue their behavior because they don’t care, she just doesn’t get it. I wish people would stop enabling her…

    you guys are awesome and SO strong and SO brave!
    thank you so much for sharing your stories because it shows people that these things happen everyday to every kind of person and these situations are more common than people think!!
    i like the publicity this show gets because it brings awareness to the situation..or if your a douche than you just poke fun and the situations and take it as a joke but fu*k them!

    wish you guys all the best of luck, truly, from someone with a loving heart who cares immensly and would love love love to see all you beautiful people succeeed :]

    Karri Ann, now there’s a lady you can’t forget. Her picture is in my dictionary under Psychotic and Narcissist.
    She’s perfect, she doesn’t need help.

  192. TVannie says:

    I think these people are very courageous to participate in this TV show. It’s a difficult subject and it’s humiliating. These people feel so bad about themselves it’s hard for them to trust others, to have a real relationship.

    I hope they are all successful in this effort.

  193. Norianna says:

    Are you serious.. I am a sex addicted person.. I started watching your show and it WAS helping me out.. I didn’t think there were many people like me… But I think its completely hypocritical that you have Club Love Commercials running during your show I was in such a state of shock when I saw that I will NOT be watching your show anymore.. Seriously what kind of moron thought that was a good idea???

    Show is a good idea.. Advertising needs some rethinking!

  194. Norm says:

    Kari Ann shouldnt be on the show shes nothing but a spoiled little brad that realy isnt that pretty

  195. IN21320 says:

    Kinda BS…what is wrong with porn and wanting sex? I see nothing wrong and if you do then you are probably a prude. The outcome of the perople who go through this kind of therapy is they think sex is wrong and they shouldn’t do it…nothing wrong with sex, different kinds of sex and especailly masturbation.

    That said, Amber Smith is a hottie.

  196. Adrianne says:

    I really enjoy the show for the most part, on the down side….My boyfriend works at a treatment center here in Canada and they deal with all kinds of addiction including sex addiction and there is no way any of that stuff flys.They are not allowed to wear clothing like they do on the show and the drama is not allowed. I belive that these people who are getting help are doing a good thing but they should be supported in the best way possible, and setting a good enviornment for growth is the first step.

  197. T says:

    I agree with Norianna. The commercials that are run during this show are terrible for anyone trying to recover from sex addiction. I have seen commercials for everything from condoms to vibrators (which I guess Trojan sells in Walgreens now). Otherwise the show is very moving. I didn’t take it very seriously in the beginning because I thought, how can this possibly compare to drug addiciton but after a while I realized how much these people are hurting and suffering. I’m really praying for everyone on the show. I hope they all find themselves and have a great recovery. I connected with every one of them and my heart goes out to them.

    Sex commercials during a sex rehab show??? Come on Dr. Drew, how can you let this happen. That is like dangling candy in front of a baby. What’s next?, drug commercials during Celebrity Rehab?? I am appalled VH-1 would allow this and then turn around and take credit for helping people. VH-1 should be ashamed of themselves!

    I think Kari Ann is a spoiled little brat. She is no better than anyone else. She acts as though she is entitled to more than others. She also comes off as being fake.I thought Miss teen U.S.A. was suppose to help the needy and set an example for others. She seems to be fake. I am glad that she started to participate with the group. That is what she is there for. I didn’t understand her attitude towards Kendra.She was way out of line.I think it’s jealousy.Hopefully this will help her come to terms with her past. As for James where does he get off thinking it is okay to say your going to rape someone. Very strange one.That word should never be used to any woman.Then turned it into playing the victim. Amber and Nicole are very caring beautiful women inside and out.I wish them all the luck they so deserve.I was really disappointed that Phil began to make excuses for James instead of telling him he owed Jennifer a sincere apology. Jennifer keep your head up. Try not to let stupid individuals get you down. Try to open up and say what you feel. I’m glad you didn’t let James get away with his remark.Your also a beautiful lady and never deserve to be spoken to that way by anyone. Duncan it was wonderful to see your soft side. Some men don’t get it. Which the other 2 men certainly don’t seem to.Hang in there. As for Phil your only problems seem to be you can’t get over using women. I just can’t relate to that.I can see if you don’t change, your going to be one lonely dude.Get to know a woman and be in a committed relationship b/f having sex.Love should come b/f sex. Kendra I am so glad that you have a husband that you love dearly who loves you back. Your a beautiful woman and I hope this makes your marriage grow even stronger.Good luck to all of you.

    I think Dr. Drew is an amazing addiction specialist and I believe he is doing the best he can to help these people. I’m glad that VH1 is shining a light on sex addiction because it truly does exist. Although I am not affected by sex addiction personally I think it is wonderful making it public and proving that it is really a problem, just like drug and alcohol addiction.
    Best wishes to all involved in the program.

  201. Sonny says:

    I think the girl that was brought in to @@))#*((#+*^@^~ ist Phil & James with the exercise should not have been wearing the tights she did. These guys are struggling with these addictions and that is hard enough let alone have this lady dressing up with these tight fitting close. Just an opinion.

  204. Evan says:

    I just saw the preview for the new upcoming episode and was deeply disturbed to see how that woman handled the situation with kari ann. she didnt even physically hit the woman from what i saw and she went at her and pulled her hair, i thought i was watching the real housewives of atlanta for a minute i mean you call that woman a professional? because all i saw was some ghetto coming out of a girl that was so disturbing to watch i kept replaying it because i couldnt believe what i just saw you need to give your staff a little reality check on how to handle a situation in a different manner.

  205. Jimbo Johnson says:

    Jennifer Ketcham is a slut. Why is she crying about what James said because she was rapped before and it brings back horrible memories? If that is the case then why is she a sex addict and a porn star? If the rape troubles her like she says I would think sex in general would bring back bad memories from the rape but not in her case. Shes a porn star and a sex addict and therefore a slut!

  206. Terrieb says:

    I wish the participants the best of luck in the future. Their stories were very touching, as is thier courage and quest for happiness. I learned alot about my own childhood listening to their stories, and I’m grateful.

  207. kia says:

    I am looking at sex rehab right now and the episode where Selma was dismissed because of that ^__~`^%#)$@~~$^)+ Kerriann is unbelievable…Not so much Selma’s dismissal although unfortunate but I’m disgusted by the way in which the group was told. The incedent was discribed to the group in a way that I did not see. I sincerely wish the show will show the clip to the group and let them formulate an opinion….I am highly disappointed in the way in which this washandled.

  208. Mz CiNnAmOn says:

    Kari Ann has been a problem since day one. For Sel to be fired for defending herself isn’t fair. If Kari Ann would have been in the group meeting Sel wouldn’t have had to try to do her job. Kari Ann shouldn’t have thrown anything at a staff memeber. When Kari Ann stated she wasn’t going to talk cause she didn’t want those people in the room. Well all I saw was two black women, this racism shouldn’t been allowed on the show. As long as Kari is on the show SEX REHAB WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO BE WATCHED IN MY HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!! The show should have been protecting the staff from things like this. Sel, I deeply apologize that i’m not on the show to SLAP the sh*t out of Kari Ann. I LOVE U, Nicole keep your head up!!!!

  209. stevietalk says:

    Come on you guys – get a GRIP…. I didn’t watch the show or come here to JUDGE these people. We don’t know exactly what they are holding/hiding inside of them, we don’t know what they’ve gone through in their lives or exactly what brought them here. We DO know they all need help and are willing to start the process as painful as if may be.
    As for Kari Ann – I agree she is acting spoiled and she is beig disruptive to the group right now. I trust that Dr. Drew is giving her time to try to get her worn down some and have her get her ‘shell to crack’ some so she can start ENGAGING in a positive way.
    In case you can’t get past the ‘spoiled `*@*&*_(`@*++(“$ thing — she is obviously VERY insecure (she thinks Kendra is jealous of her … that’s really sad). She said more than once ‘stop laughing at me, I’ll intelligent….’ and she goes NO WHERE without the ‘mask’ of makeup – it is WHO she is, she as been a beauty queen in training and for real for so long that she doesn’t feel worthy unless she’s getting attention and the focus is on her. It’s very sad and I hope they can get her to open up and LOOK INSIDE.
    It’s nice to project to the world and ourselves a nice exterior, but really our bodies are just a vessel to house our spirit/soul — that is who we TRULY are. Everything comes from within.

    Sex Addiction, I see now is no different than drug, alcohol, eating disorders …. however sex addiction, as Dr. Drew says – really needs to go so much deeper to get to the root of the problem.
    I’ll bet Kari has some REAL big issues that haven’t surfaced yet…
    I wish ALL of these people the very best because they are going through their own personal hell.

  210. Tech Man says:

    They should have thrown the little beyotch off the show when she threw a vase. This show is just promoting her narcissism, they cater to her every whim. She threw a big F’ing vase at someone! She’s lucky hands being put on her was all that happened, she should have had her spoiled little head shoved through a wall and then been sent home.

  211. Brittany says:

    Hey, I think Keri Ann, reguardless of her personal circumstancs and her horriable personality is always show totally out of line in ALL instances. Never once is she shown as a normal decent understanding person who gets personal responsiably for even the most basic things like attending on time meetings that the program requires for everyone else to be accountable to attend. With the editing It makes me think she should have been ejected for the program immediatley in the beginning. I think Dr. Drew was very wrong for not doing that right away- shes disrubtive and disrespecting of every one shes is around. What a toxic envirnment and everyone who said they were sorry to have judged her for the conflict (with Councelor who grabbed Her) were really off base since they were so used her horriable nasty
    unacceptabe immature personality. She is a hindrance to anyone looking to benefit in Rehab envirnment. Dr Drew should be ashamed for sheltering her.!

  212. liz howard says:

    Seriously I’m sick of seeing karyann baby attitude! No selma should not have grabbed her but if karyann had been confronted along time ago this wouldn’t have happened she is a baby and she laughs and smile at everything and I just don’t believe anything she says she needs to grow up and be more responsible for herself and actions! Get over urself! Seriously is she gone yet????

  213. KAT says:

    I think karie ann is a spoiled brat who is a selfobsessed baby who I feel thinks she got on the show to advance her career. I understand she has a sickness but her actions discuss discuss discuss me cuz it seems some of the others do want to get better- lock her in a cell without her hair brush or a mirror- that will help get her to become humble much quicker than this passive recovery crap . No disrespect to u dr drew. I see your points

  214. ikekhan says:

    YOU PEOPLE ARE ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!! THAT LOW LIFE KARI ANN @!@~)#(#~(*#!_%@ SHOULD BE LITERALLY THROWN FROM THE SHOW. SHE IS AN +!*__^+%$`($+~$ HOLE COWARD AND UGLY AS HELL. I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE BEATS THE )^`~)!$&#%&@^_&) OUT OF HER.

  215. Erika says:

    I’m so disgusted after tonight’s show. Selma shouldn’t have been fired without Kari Ann being kicked off. For the rest of the group to rally behind her as if Selma were some violent person is crazy. The way the female doctor explained it was so dramatic and in favor of Kari Ann that it was ridiculous. She was actually happy that Selma got fired. Kari Ann makes me sick!!! Being a spoiled brat or an addict doesn’t give you the right to throw things at people, but Dr. Drew just made her think that she can act like that with no consequences. In the real world, she would know better than to treat people that way. She didn’t move or say a word when Nicole confronted her. Kari Ann is a spoiled little coward. I hope that Selma finds something better where she is respected and treated like a person, not a maid. I’m so disappointed with Dr. Drew that I’m not going to watch it anymore. It’s sad that he would allow someone to be treated the way Kari Ann (and only Kari Ann) treated Selma.

  216. Seribabe says:

    I AM FURIOUS. While I do not agree with violence of any form I also do not agree with Dr. Drew and his staff for allowing Keri Ann to push hate and racism around like it was her badge of honor. She clearly has a problem with black women from Selma to the PCA Administrator. The proof “I’m tired of dealing with ghetto people.” Had Dr. Drew taken care of this problem with Kari Ann immediately Selma would still have her job. White people need to realize racism is a trigger for blacks and apparently Keri Ann is smarter than Dr. Drew and his staff her whole goal was to get Selma “out of her face” permanently. I will never watch this BS show again.

  220. Erin says:

    THAT LADY SHOULD OF NOT BEEN FIRED….are you kidding me kari ann is a nightmare…she should be removed from the show she is a nightmare…this girl is horrible this is my last season of dr drew if this chick does not get removed

  221. Chris says:

    Let’s see- Kari Ann was molested, raped, beaten, had a gun put to her head by her former boyfriend but it is ok that Selma chest bumped her, physically blocked her way repeatedly and then physically *“!!(`%&)&~)$# aulted Kari Ann when she threw a vase at her? I am amazed that anyone would expect a different result from Kari Ann, let alone a trained Lead Tech.
    “White people need to realize racism is a trigger for blacks “ ?? Gosh, I guess that in her employee manual it should have said, “There will be no aggressive physical contact from staff to a client UNLESS there is racism involved. If racism is involved then it is acceptable to let your emotions, years of education and training, fly right out the window and slap dat beyotch”
    I feel sorry for Selma but she made a choice and now she is going to have to deal with the consequence of probably not being able to work in her field for which she was trained and educated. She actually let that messed up little girl take away her ability to put food on her table, pay her mortgage, etc. Maybe had she kept those things in mind she would have simply reported to Dr Drew, “Hey, I let Kari Ann know about the group therapy and she chose to ignore me. How ya wanna handle it Doc?”

  222. jamie says:

    I think that the show is great and that most of the people on it are very brave. It is hard to admit an addiction and I could not imagine admitting it to the whole world. With that said what is karri ann doing on the show? She plays the little vixen quite well and I can not believe that dr. Drew not only allowes her behavior but enforces it. I think that the staff member should not have touched karri ann but I also think that it would not have happened if the situation would not have been allowed to escalate. Karri should have been checked along time ago. People have problems and people need help and while getting it there are going to be rough times. Just remember that you can lead a horse to water but you can not force it to drink. Kick her out and help someone who want help. It seems all she wants is to do what she wants while being on tv.

    I think the docter on this show is the worse. They let kari Ann does care about anyone. I am surprised that the fake doctor allowed this to go on and let selma be taken down. You lied on selma and blamed her for everything. Yes she grabbed her but it was a reflect. You lied and said Karri Ann was trying to get her book and selma stopped her. That was a lie. She said she wasn’t dressed and she was, she said she was getting her book and she didn’t, She wouldn’t go and then she through a vase at her. And their was no consequence but we are going to give you another chance. Seriously and then in the next show she still hits a staff. Ohh you didn’t see that coming. You let her get away with so much because she was famous. Get over was. She never was working on getting better just missing her seconds of fame. Her issues is missing being in the spot light and sex gets her affection… I hate this show it makes people more sick. Everyone was fustrated and it drew them over the edge… Including viewers. I was surprised you would like to try to keep the clients at the price of your staff. Karri Ann got on another staff refuse to get off the phone. You got issues you really shouldn’t have lost selma. She needs to get her own show tuff love. She was wonderful she showed others her kind and understanding side and you ruined her repatation with them making them think she was mean and did away with all that she was teaching them. They need to never let you work with people again… And then you are always smirking at other peoples sorrow. You just don’t get it.

    I do not agree with Kim
    I think Kari Ann is in need of much more than that. She reflexed and Kari Ann in the next episode is going to hit another staff member. So much for she is the victim. Does everyone gets beat by Kari Ann and Karri ann keeps getting away with everything. Yay right. I am starting to think either you are like Karri ann or you know her. Karri Ann gets away with everything and it is time she stops it. She has a psychological issue she wants to stay young and beautiful and the center of attention forever and the world does not revolve around her. So no victim services here…

  228. Dylan says:

    Are you guys friggin’ kidding me? Selma herself said it was inappropriate. You guys want to defend someone for ATTACKING someone whom has a history of violence?

    She is a PROFFESSIONAL! She had NO right to react the way she did. Look, I’m sorry that Kerri is so vicious and Selma didn’t deserve that treatment but the fact of the matter is that Selma SHOULD no better, NO excuse. That is the contract Selma signed.

    Would it be acceptable to hit a mentally unstable patient because the pushed you away? NO! Absolutely not! Physical response is ONLY acceptable when there is a DIRECT threat to that persons LIFE.

    There was no threat to Selma’s life, her reaction was unproffessional.

    I honestly hope Selma finds a good place to work, I do. I feel she’ll learn from this lesson but to you people sticking up for behavior SHE knows was WRONG it’s RIDICULOUS.

    Was Kerri right? No, but she has a DISEASE, an ADDICTION. She’s unable to regulate her normal responses, Dr. Drew said himself that addicts can naturally become violent and non-responsive. That isn’t a(n) excuse you can give to Selma.

    I hope all the best in the world for Selma and I truly hope Kerri and all of the people in that show make it through.

    There is no right and wrong, only one day at a time.

  229. Bre says:

    I would like to thank all of the participants for being so brave. By virtue of being on the show, you’re helping countless numbers of people. I have an enormous amount of respect for each and every one of you. I hope the good karma comes back to each of you three-fold or more.

  230. Marissa says:

    Selma did nothing wrong. The psycho b$%#* shouldn’t have thrown a temper tantrum! For all Selma knew, the brat was going to continue throwing stuff at her. Selma hardly touched her. She lunged and then seemed to stop herself right as her hands touched her. I don’t know how Karrie Ann hasn’t gotten her butt kicked by now! How did Selma get fired, but Karrie Ann is still there? Must just be for the ratings!

  231. kim may says:

    Hi Dr. Drew ~

    Just want to acknowledge the amazing work that I have seen you do on Celebrity Rehab, Talk to your Parents, and Sex Therapy. I am a huge fan of you as a Doctor! I have read 2 of your books and would like to know if you have written more?

    Additionally, I want to add that I have had my own challehges to overcome including mental illness, sexual trauma, and family of origin problems. Currently I am practicing a 12 STep Program – CODA. I rarely hear you mention Co-Dependency and would like to see your patients being advised of the issue and the additional hope available for them. In my case, once all my other addcitions were peeles away I had to face my co-dependency.

    Do you think you could address this in the near future?
    Thanks for all you have done for so many.
    Respectfully,
    Kim May

  232. Richie Baptista says:

    WOW!! I cant stop crying after the latest episode featuring Phil and his Dad.! BRAVO COURAGE it took for him to share what happened when his mom passed.. I hope he reads these posts! Having been in SLAA for over 10 years I can relate. I joined after my mom passed and was always acting out before, during and after her illness…
    FANTASTIC honesty and terrific program. It is really helping in my recovery.

  233. Kristin says:

    I, too, am an adult sexual abuse survivor. I am extremely disheartened to see Kari Ann continue rehabilitation, especially on such a show as Dr. Drew. She is so incredibly immature, and selfish. Why is it that she gets such special treatment? Selma only tried her best to help Kari Ann. I realize, because of editing, that the TV audience did not view the entire scenario but because it has become so controversial, perhaps we should have. I know that I, for one, lost much respect for this show, and the overall judgment of Dr. Drew and Jill. Kari Ann seemed to be exonorated of all responsibility. Survivors and addicts alike need to be accountable for their actions. Selma should have never laid her hands on Kari Ann, but I believe it really was a reflex action. Selma would not have had to react if Kari Ann would stop being such an instigator. I believe that she loves the attention, and really soaks it up when she is then considered the victim all over again. I just hope that the producers, and perhaps Dr. Drew, really see Kari Ann’s behavior for what it is and sending her @^`^*!!!#`!#)&%*) ng before something even more devastating happens. What a shame.

  234. Sandi says:

    Dr Drew, I really like you as a therapist. I’ve known of you since your 1st TV appearance with Adam? However, the woman therapist who speaks with a lisp is racist (in my opinion). She DID NOT explain accurately to the group — how “Selma” the other therapist was terminated because of Kari Ann? I agree that therapists should be able to control their temperament in order to $`_&`@%~)_(&(#+ ist those in need of therapy, but white people have always known how to get blacks fired from their jobs and especially if the white person doesn’t like the black individual. For the record, I’m an american (period). I feel that I can make this analogy through observing previous work environments. My favorites are Nicole, Amber & Phil. They just happen to be the smartest of the group and have more savvy, the others are emotional whiners and NOT too bright. They can actually learn something by quietly watching Nicole, Amber & Phil. I say this with a sweet smile :), please don’t feel resentful displeasure — I mean well.

    I saw the episode of Sex Rehab where Selma grabbed at Miss US Teen. She was totally right to defend herself. That girl threw a heavy object, you are allowed to react as a human to something like that. I hope she doesn’t just accept the firing but files a claim with the EEOC and/or files a civil lawsuit against the facility, Dr. Drew and the VH-1.

    Also, I find that Dr. Drew allows lots of stuff to go on that no other Dr. would allow except that the mess makes for good tv so he lets detrimental things go on for too long. Ms. Teen should have long been removed from that group and maybe even that surfer/skater guy.

  237. Annoyed says:

    I hope Selma calls a lawyer. She definitely has a wrongful termination claim, among others.

  238. Peter says:

    These people all want money and fame and are willing to degrade themselves to do it. That cast is there for the check and hopeful bump to their career.

  239. Bric says:

    Dr. Drew is gutless and he only cares about the money these people bring in for him. I have worked in this field and know full well that he needs to attend some Al-Anon meetings because he only enables these people. Here’s where he has gone wrong.

    Selma —-
    Should have been fired for grabbing a patient.
    Dr. Drew couldn’t tell her she was fired, but instead put it on personnel…hello…your the boss of the facility.

    Kari Ann —-
    Should have been asked to leave the program because
    1-Intimidation by throwing an object
    2-Failure to participate fully (ongoing issue)
    3-They had her sign a contract, which she already agreed to when she entered. Jennifer asked if everyone would be held accountable to follow the rules…the ones she knew about entering the facility.

    Amber —-
    Guarantee she relapses, when Kari Ann made a comment about the new staff member. She should have immediately gone to a staff member and informed them of her intent. This shows lack of willingness to change.

    Dr. Drew you have sacrificed the other patients for one patients manipulation/conniving/and refusal to participate. Don’t worry Tiger Woods will probably be your next client though.

  240. Muffin says:

    It makes me disappointed that Kari Ann was not held accountable for her violent action in throwing the vase. She has time and time again shown that she does not want to and will not help herself. She’s only there because she wants the exposure to be a celebrity and make money off of it. Why don’t you just let her leave and give those that want to participate the ability to do so without the drama she brings. It was sickening to see the others feel sorry for her for an incident she was responsible for. they were not told the whole story. Selma has shown great restraint up until that point, I don’t know if I would have been able to take as much ause as she did. Just becase Kari Ann was abused does not make her actions tolerable. Just throw her out and be done with it. I hope this incident did not end Selma’s career because good people like her are hard to find in a rehab industry.

  241. supertruckie1413 says:

    Phil and james r cool people,but somebody must kick the (!^#$`#%$%&^$^`^ out of Kari Ann and Duncan.u gotta be kiddin’ me w/ those two.What barrel did they scrape those two from?She’s a stupid little BRAT who needs a attitude ajustment.And Duncan is a typical +$#!$_@&&`^~+)& judgemental of eveyone but himself,he’s two faced,and depends too much on others(girls)!!What a joke!!!!And I feel the nurse did the right thing!!!

  242. Jen says:

    Kari Ann is the type of person I hated growing up. The way she talks and thinks she is better then everyone else, when clearly thats not the case. She eggs people on so they blow up. Yes Selma should have had better anger management, especially working in a rehab but I can see why she did it. She wines and cries about everything like poor me poor me, I have had a bad life and stuggled with sex and alcohol addiction too but its no reason to act how she is. Maybe she will come back when she grows up some more and is ready for treatment. Its not fair to everyone else who is ready for treatment to have someone like her there.

  243. Courtney says:

    What can I say about the Kari Ann and Selma situation? Dr.Drew handled this all wrong. Kari Ann is just as responsible as Selma. Who in the world is not going to defend themselves? If anything Dr.Drew, you should have let go of both Kari Ann and Selma. Selma was doing her job in pushing Kari Ann to do the work to get help. Yes, she has been dragging behind everyone else. Excuse me, but is this show designed to be like a bootcamp/therapy? Kari Ann has pushed everyone to the brinks and she pushed the wrong one. Now if Selma had gotten hurt by the flying object what would Dr.Drew say then? Would Kari Ann be gone? I think not. Just as many others have said, Kari Ann is getting special treatment. I think that it was crazy for the rest of the group to have apologized to her for being upset that she was the cause of Selma being fired. I have lost all respect for Dr.Drew and his way of handling business. I do respect Selma for accepting what she did was not the right thing to do and I wish her the very best. I am through with this show and anything else that involves Dr.Drew!!!! I can not help to wonder why he did not review the tapes to find out what really happened? He just wanted to keep his show rolling.

  244. kay says:

    The way the other therapist told the story concerning,
    Selma and Kari Ann was a big blatant bold-ass racist motivated lie. Selma was doing her job and repeatedly asking Kari Ann to come join the group. Kari Ann kept using the lame (^#$^~*%+)%~+$# excuse about not wanting to go because she was late, and did not want to walk in late,
    this was her millionth excuse for treatment and going against the rules she agreed to at the begining of the show. The therapist did the thing whites have being doing since the begining of time she played the stereotype card that Selma was forceful aggresive and violent. She in no way grabbed Kari Ann and pulled her hair! She just grabbed Kari Ann as a reflex from Kari Ann throwing
    the heavy vase at her. SELMA PLEASE RECOGNIZE THIS EXTREME DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER TO SEEK SYMPATHY FOR THE
    REAL AGGRESOR SICK AND VIOLENT PERSON KARI ANN AND FILE
    A SUITE FOR DISCRIMINATION AND DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER.
    KARI ANN HAS BROKEN THE RULES MANY TIMES AND WAS WELL AWARE OF HER MANIPULATIVE ABUSIVE ACTIONS TO SELMA AND THE REST OF THE CAST YOU HAVE DONE AN INJUSTICE TO HER,
    SELMA THE REST OF THE CAST THE VIEWERS BY NOT EXPELLING HER!

  245. Vanessa says:

    I am very, very upset that they slaughtered the story when telling the group what happened with Selma and Kari ann. Kari Ann deserved what happened. Everyone in this group are lazy, spoiled brats and its no wonder they have ended up where they are. A bunch of worthless people who are being catered to and waited on hand and foot. They need a swift kick in the ^)^`&+%*+%`_$^^ especially Kari Ann. And Selma deserves nothing but a raise.

  247. Nina says:

    I agree with all those that believe and witnessed that Selma was unfairly terminated. That stupid brat Keri Ann has been a pain in the `_&%%*(^*&_$()! for everyone. She is disrespectful, antagonistic and many other bad traits that are not good for the healing of the rest of the group. I don’t understand why Dr. Drew keeps giving her opportunity after opportunity. Moreover, that brat didn’t deserve the sympathy of the group based on the biased explanation that the other therapist gave them.
    On the other hand, Selma accepting her responsibility in the incident make me admire her much more. If I were her, I would fight for my rights against this stupid brat. I just watched a preview of the next episode, and she spills a glass of water on Sherrie’s chest. I hope that Dr. Drew has the guts to kick this imbecile from the center. I also expect she gets to see the opinion of the postings in this site. KERRI ANN YOU ARE DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!

  252. Tom says:

    After watching the episode in which Selma was fired from the center, the show has become more of a publicity stunt rather than what the ads intended it to be. Dr. Drew and his female counter part allowed themselves to not completely fill in the rest of the cast as to the manner in which Kari Ann was actually behaving. They stated that she was on her way to therapy when in fact several times she stated that she was not going. In any rehab that would be unacceptable and for the record I’m not stating that Selma was justified in her actions but it was she that was pushed to her reaction and the rest of the cast should be aware of that. Kari Ann should be held accountable and literally stripped of all perks for the remainder of her stay. I do hope that Selma will seek legal action in this matter as the “caught on tape” will be evidence enough, why don’t you show that to the rest of the cast and let them make the decision for themselves. Is Nicole the only person that sees Kari for what she really is, a winey, self-centered, lieing B**ch. From the comments that have been written there seems to be a common concern, you might want to follow up with this unless ratings are not a concern for you.

  253. Wendy says:

    Oh my goodness…she throws things at ppl…and then is on the phone after cerfew and sits there like a princess like she’s doing nothing wrong! I’d like to do more than grab her by the hair!

  254. Samantha Zoliack says:

    I work in the mental health field which can be very physically and mentally draining. In this show they allow many perks I don’t see where I work. I guess its because they are on TV. I think Selma should have been held accountable but not fired. We are all human and when one puts up with crap on a daily basisl it can be overwhelming

  255. Stephanie says:

    I just wish the VERY BEST to all of them, including Kari Ann – although she doesn’t deserve at this time to continue, nor is she ready. She is jeopardizing everyone else by her behaviour. I hope she DOES get herself help one day when she is ready because the BIG CHIP on her shoulder seems to all tem from being VERY insecure – shje just doesn’t know what do do with herself, nor does she know how to interact decentlyu with others, unless she is getting all the attention …. clearly it stems from the abuse in her life, coupled with the beauty pageants — looking for attention, love, acceptance …..

    Anyway, to the rest of the group — you will be given coping skills to work on, it will be difficult however please remember:
    WHAT YOU FEAR – YOU CREATE,
    WHAT YOU FOCUS ON EXPANDS…

    FOCUS ON POSITIVE, GOOD THINGS THAT CAN HELP YOU MOVE FORWARD WITH SOBRIETY and HAPPINESS and build your confience as you go …

    May you overcome all of your challenges and adversities – one day at a time :)

  256. Pete says:

    Dr Drew is just in it for the cash, he was on Dr Phil (another tv phony) when I was flipping through channels! He has a lot of down and out has-beens on his show, I call it skid-row for the boob-tube! Amber Smith must have a lot of time on her hands, because she has no job to go too, so she visits Drew again for another go round. Dr Drew sounds so monotone when he talks, like he could not care what happens to them when they leave, just as long as he can get his 15 minutes of shame on tv. The babe that’s with him is a dish, just another tv bimbo like a lot of the others. I watch it for the babes, wanna see Kari Ann and the porn chick do a 4some with Drew and his sidekick! Dr Drew must go home at night and do a good pull on his pud, with all the sex talks and the horned-up chicks around him, I would!

  257. Heather says:

    Kari Ann needs a swift kick it the butt! Life doesn’t revolve around her. How dare she treat other people beneath her. Everyone deserves respect! Yuck! I understand why no one wants to be around her. She has sense of entitlement!

  258. Dave says:

    I think Selma could have avoided the escalation if she simply reported Kari Ann’s defiance rather than attempting to somehow coerce Kari Ann into compliance with the program. At the same time, I agree that Kari Ann’s behavior was unacceptable long before the incident occurred.

  259. jimson says:

    Kerri Ann is a child!! How f***n stupid does she feel watching herself act like such a ~#&!(*&#!&+^#)+**) please kill ur self

  260. marym says:

    I have been a Karie Ann and have had my abandonment reenacted in a therapy situation. My heart ached for her as I reexperienced my own pain. Toughlove may produce action to heal but the deep felt abandonment lasts indefinitely and makes it virtually impossible to not relapse into whatever your addiction may be. True help comes from unconditional love. As hard as it may be to extend it to rude, immature behavior. There are other consequences to change behavior than recreating abandonment and eliminating any chance for the patient to permanently heal.

  261. Stephanie says:

    im so glad kari ann got kicked out!!!!!!!

  262. kat says:

    “”That girl threw a heavy object, you are allowed to react as a human to something like that. I hope she doesn’t just accept the firing but files a claim with the EEOC and/or files a civil lawsuit against the facility, Dr. Drew and the VH-1.”” As much as I hate Kari Ann, Selma should not have touched her. When you take a job as a counselor to addicts you have to know there is a risk they will lash out physically. She should have went straight to Dr. Drew that way Kari Ann has no way to squirm out of the hot seat. I hope this does not ruin Selma’s career.

  263. Marsha says:

    Have a message for some of you…Pennie, I adore you, you touch my heart. i feel you are gonna make it…with anything. Phil, I think you are a great guy. You are a kind person with a soft heart towards others. Kendra, you need to stop whining and have you ever said anything positive? Kari Ann, you need a good spanking. Did your parents ever tell you of any rules or limits? No wonder people abandon you…who wants to be around you? The minute you put that plastic bag over your head I would have committed you. You need so much help girl!
    Duncan, you are a good looking guy. I hope all the best for you.

  264. I Hate Kari Ann says:

    Thank god you got rid of that abusive little @#$%^& she makes me sick.
    She should be institutionalised. It made me sick to see how her destructive self-obsessed behaviour interrupted the healing of the others who clearly wanted the help.
    I will NOT be buying her book.

  265. Nely Sam says:

    I am outraged that Selma was fired because of Kerri Ann, a stupid wannabe that thinks she is better than others and has no respect for anyone. Her past doesn’t give her the right to mistreat people. Shame on you for firing Selma!

  266. Inquisitive says:

    I have just been wondering from a psychological point of view…..Keri Ann has some SERIOUS serious issues, and I cannot put my finger on it. I mean that behavior was so completely all over the place and so bizarre. I would have to venture that she has mutiple personalites going on and they are all in serious conflict. She is a danger to society.

  267. Rooster3 says:

    OMG!! I so love Amber Smith!!! I wish she would get her own reality TV show!

  268. Bob says:

    1st-You idiots are getting fired up over a VH-1 show. How sad are your lives? It’s an entertainment channel, not a community service.
    2nd-I love how everyone screams racism just because the woman who got fired is black. That’s an argument people fall back on when they have no argument. You are the true racists. Grow up. You’re as pathetic as that Kari Ann slut.

  269. One of those girls says:

    Dear Dr. Drew:

    I love the show. I am a avid watcher. I was wondering when you spoke to Phil Varone on-one-one and stated that “some girls will see the best in you, and want to fix you.” I am wondering why this happens as I am one of those girls who are drawn to individuals like Phil.

    Thanks

  270. Becca says:

    Was Kari Ann ever charged with +@)#$*(&$%*~%^` aulting Selma and Shelly? NO ONE, including those who have been violated, has the right to violate another verbally, physically, emotionally. I wonder why the staff and patients are not empowered to protect themselves from abuse; from what I saw, the place was being run by Kari Ann. That must have been an ego rush for her to have everyone scurrying around taking care of her needs while she was shouting obscenities and hurling vases and water at everyone. It’s disturbing and hard to respect this treatment center and staff when they do not seem to respect themselves or patients.

  271. Jeannie says:

    Dr. Drew and his team in this show as the previouse ones face a vary difficult job )!#!~!&$)~~&!(^ isting addicts to face the long road of recovery. Unfortunately as viewers we do not see the entire situation when major events ocure, and I find this season perticullarly disconected. There are many moments in a program this season that I reallize that scenes are disjointed and we are getting clips from different time frames which I presume occures in edditing. However, this has created a season which is less realistic than previouse and at times I feel like Dr. Drew and therapist Jill have haven’t conected with the group especially when individuals like Karrie-Ann are so disruptive to the group. Once again I beleive that as viewers we are not seeing the entire issue at any given time so we can not judge. Only this season I feel that the show is not giving the appropriate view into this rehab.
    I do commend the rehab team for bringing this story forward as it effects more of the population than any one wants to recognize. Abuse of drugs, sexuality or a person causes major negative effects in lives and as a society we need to be more aware of this. I am sure many opinions are held on how this show is being seen and conducted and that truley is a blessing because it means we are thinking and discussing the topic therefore it is educating.
    To the members of the show I applaud you for having the strength to face your demons and seek the help you deserve. May your journey be a safe and succesfull one.
    Thank You.

  272. Jaime says:

    Kari-Ann is brutal, but she’s a patient. Selma is staff. Selma knows going in that she could be subjected to beligerant, hostile and aggressive patients. It is her job NOT to react.
    And what the hell is wrong with people always throwing the race card down. If anything YOU are the racist for not being able to see the situation outside of your “black vs white” mentality. Race played no part in Selma’s dismissal.
    I admire Selma for taking as much abuse as she did (I don’t think i could’ve) without reacting. However KariAnn deserved the disdain of the group, and the watered-down version of events to temper the groups scorn for KariAnn, delivered by Jill and Dr Drew, was weak. I was hoping Nicole Narain would shred KariAnn when she confronted her.

  273. Apribl says:

    I just wanted to thank Dr. Drew and the cast of of sex rehab for sharing with the world their inner most demons. You are touching people all over the world and given us some strentgh to look at ourselves and our demons.
    Thank you.

  274. grace says:

    Kari Ann has borderline personality disorder, hence the behavior issues, ‘I love you don’t leave me’ stance, and drama queen central (not to mention the hyper-sexuality). I am a bit surprised that they didn’t treat her with behavior modification model in mind: limits, boundaries, and consequences. As for the rest of the show, I love it!

  275. Carolyn says:

    I don’t know about anyone else, but Kari Ann really needs her ($*@!+%`@%@`!$# kicked. She is such a spoiled rotten @~%^$`(*@(`%~!!#@ with such an overwhelming sense of entitlement,it’s nauseating. She is such a crazy @~%^$`(*@(`%~!!#@ Blech!

  276. Dan says:

    Is there really such a thing as sexual addiction or is it just another manifestation of Obsessive Compulsivity and para-philia?…without addressing the underlying anxiety disorder and just focusing on the sexual compulsivity, I believe it sets someone up for failure because at some point they will have sex..masturbation, thoughts, etc….and then by putting all this crap in their head, they will feel guilt and more shame about the normal activity of sex…sex is normal…sexual compulsivity is driven by the same anxiety ,guilt and shame of other compulsions

  277. Sidney Love Mackay says:

    Hey Dr.Drew I Love Your Shows
    Sex Rehab Is Better Then Sex With Mom And Dad.
    I Didn’t Fined It Fair That Selma Had To Leave Because Of Kari-Ann I Find She Only Goes To Group To Do The Fun Stuff Not Really To Talk And Kendra And Jennifer And Amber Are So Pretty And I Think They Are Getting Better.
    I Hope Everything Works Out For All Of Them.

    ok well we would like to say that keri ann is a selfish little brat and needs to grow up. America who ever voted for her to be miss teen usa you guys are plum retarted! the girl acts like she is 7 years old. but the other members of this show did a really good job and they all acted like they wanted to get help which is real good. i hope they all end up doing well in life.

  282. Cindy Y says:

    Kari Ann needs her ~~#(#%*#)&&(%$$ KICKED HARD and THEN she needs to be admitted into a psychiatric facility for a full ~~#(#%*#)&&(%$$ essment and medication. Its clear she has severe mental health and behavioral issues and manipulates people into doing things that suit her and only her and throws a tantrum or turns on the plastic tears to invoke sympathy to get her way. I have great empathy for the staff that put up with her crap – she would have been out the door if it were me running this facility. This little witch pushed everyones buttons to the limit. What really got to me how she refused to wake UP in the mornings and ordered the staff to get her juice – when they didn’t she’d say they were “mean”. ~~#(#%*#)&&(%$$ kicking from here to KINGDOM COME!!!!!! Maybe she’ll wake UP then.

  284. Felina says:

    Did this program even do these people any good? I mean, even in the last episode, they all look so weak and broken. I don’t think this program helped them at all. The weren’t ready to leave the rehab, and the producers just left them out on the streets with their demons still tormenting them.It’s like they got diagnosed with a terminal disease, but are released before they were even close to recovery. It only made things worse!!

  285. Dan says:

    Once again, there is NO such thing as sexual addiction..it is a false and misleading term…where in the DSM-IV or the ICD-9 does it have sexual addiction..it doesn’t..it doesn’t exist…is there sexual compulsivity?…is there sexual harm? ..is there sex problems?…Absolutely…but that is because human beings, who are sexual creatures…have various other mental disorders and when people(who are sexual) have mental disorders they invariably have sexual problems as well…sexual compulsivity is a manifestation of OCD…by using this false and misleading term…Dr. Drew is harming his patients..by bringing back guilt and shame around sexual questions..jesus you might as well send them all back to catholic school..it would be cheaper.

  286. Christine pope says:

    Kari Ann is such a rotten person and a b_tch

  287. Dick Lee says:

    Enjoyed the show very much and my heart goes out to these folks, even the ego-centric and broken Miss Teen America. In subsequent installments, does Dr. Drew guide Amber to the point of understanding that she seeks out unavailable men because she is trying to find and “fix” her father? Hope this could be a springboard for discussion. Your work is really positive and impressive. Thank you to you and your staff.

  289. Stefan says:

    I’m from Sweden. I’ve watched all the previous shows. This one was obviously very different due to the nature of sex addiction. Even though sex addicts are as messed up as drug addicts I think it’s fair to say that the actual addiction is less deadly – in the sense that the struggle for life is often less literal and acute than with drug addiction. But that also means that the psychological and existential struggle (although not necessarily the underlying problem)is more visible. I think that is where a lot of the shame comes from.

    Rehab is a great serie. Very interesting and engaging. What I don’t like is the loud no-attention-span-friendly production – the ridiculously fast tempo, the garish visual style and all the dramaturgic efforts made to emphasize the drama (including the sound effects and all the previews). Please VH1, I don’t care if you call it American, modern or Xtreme, cut the crap. Less MTV, more BBC.

    I would just like to say that your show is AWSOME, and have a few comments if I may.As I watch the show (season 2)I couldn’t help but notice how two face some of the ppl are in there,there was no reason for the girls two gang up on jamie at all,the only person with a sense of any kind of brain thinking at all is phil and I think he is the best open minded,down to earth about his addiction and try to help along the way.As I see it Kendra and Jennifer are there just for the camera.I also think that Duncan will do anything to be on the side of the girls and kiss there butts,so please the only two that deserve any kind of props in my eyes are Phil and Jamie. The ppl on your show should be true about why they are there,and like I said Phil and James are the only ones in my opinion,also I think Amber should get some props also she is a good person and doesn’t involve herself in the drama the other girls are always looking for …….THANKS for listening.

    I followed the program here in Canada and felt the celebrities worked hard. Kari-ann, I hope you didn’t give up your treatment.

    The program went deep into issues and I felt three weeks wasn’t long enough-but then again what time frame would be long enough, for abuses and life long struggles? Maybe 6 weeks would have given the group more time to process the wounds that had been opened-and more time to talk about aftercare.

    I hope everyone is well on their journey-I hope everyone has reached out for support. Thank you for talking about sexual abuse,addiction and relationship abuses (including self relationship). This is meaningful to most young people living in a sexualized world.

    Sexual Addiction – Real or not Real? Everyone has their own opinions. What I do believe, society today is over sexed. Sex is everywhere, so, no wonder there are so many who turn to sex to relieve emotional vacancies. I have enjoyed watching this season of Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew. This show has helped me to understand a small part of my husband’s inner demon and his struggles with sexual addiction and he realizes that he is not alone in his struggles. Although my husband and I are in therapy to understand his addiction and where it comes from, we are reaching out for other resources to attack this demon from all sides. We understand that recovering from sexual addiction is ultimately up to the addict and like all addicts; sobriety of addiction is a lifetime commitment. Hats off to all of those who shared their struggles and turned them around in accomplishment (even KariAnn). Thank You Dr. Drew, and Team, for providing such a show and to VH1 for hosting it. I look forward to another season!

    Has anyone else noticed that the commercials running during this show were all for sexually explicit products? It’s in poor taste.

  296. jay says:

    Look. Bottom line is addiction sucks. Its not about placing blame. Its about taking responsibility for destructive behavior. “Getting better” takes time and is an on going process. I used to listen to Dr.Drew on the radio and he got through to me. He has good advice for those who want to heal themselves and their lives. These people are going down a long tough road. Congrats to them and I wish them great success. God bless.

  303. Dr. Paul P. Shepard says:

    As a sex addiction therapist in Oakland, California, I applaud your courage in speaking out about sex addiction.

    Much of the time, being addicted to sex or addicted to porn stems from sexual abuse that can be anywhere between mild abuse to extreme abuse. And often people addicted to porn don’t realize they are addicted.

    Once again, thank you for speaking out to the community about this mostly unexamined topic.

    Regards,

    Dr. P. Shepard, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist

    caught Dr. Drew sex rehab today i never realized what an impact our childhood traumas and lack of attention from our parents can have on people and their addictions. i am Bipolar and the things mentioned above coupled with this has made things hard on me all the way around i have learned to fight back in more positive ways by staying on my meds and keeping up with therapy to understand. those who did what they did those are their burdens to take and i was a targeted victim in their sick minds and feelings of anger and powerlessness. the hardest thing to learn is it wasnt my fault most importantly i am ALIVE I SURVIVED AND FOUND MY OWN HAPPINESS you can change your behavior and keep your self in check even if you have an illness that impacts and intensifies things. i am strong intelligent a fighter and yes i also acknowledge the fact i have moments of weakness and have slipped but no one is perfect and you have to love you as you are all of you not just part of you …………

    This note is for Duncan Roy. Hi Duncan, I’m writing this to thank you for being brave enough to go on the Dr Drew Sex Rehab show. I’m a woman born in 1960. My parents had both died recently and I was starting trauma therapy to deal with things long buried but festering deeply. I was feeling quite raw when I turned on the television and saw that the entire show was on all weekend long. I watched the whole thing all weekend and alternated between uncontrolled bouts of weeping and long quiet internal silences. I felt like I had my own little group therapy going on and the show helped my helaling. Your story resonated with me very deeply. I’ll never forget the time you were with Dr Drew and you told him your family didn’t protect you, and you folded yourself over in silent anguish. I felt the pain shimmer out of you. I know the same shimmer. Watching you made me know that I was not alone with this kind of pain and there was hope for me to heal. You are very brave. Thank you again.
