Full press release on the new Rehab season is below…

VH1 has once again partnered with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a fifth season of the hit reality series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Similar to the first four cycles, the fifth season will follow the real-life experiences of celebrity patients undergoing detoxification and treatment at the Pasadena Recovery Center. This season will follow Michael Lohan (celebrity dad), Michaele Salahi (The Real Housewives of DC), Amy Fisher ( – Long Island Lolita – ), Bai Ling (The Crow) and Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch) on their quest for sobriety. Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew is slated to premiere early summer on VH1.

In the fifth installment of the Celebrity Rehab franchise, Dr. Drew takes viewers behind the closed doors of rehab and inside the often misunderstood treatment process. From heartbreak to hope we follow Dr. Drew and his patients on their difficult and deeply emotional journey to sobriety. An often raw and unflinching look at the many faces of addiction, Dr. Drew shows us that rehab is not a glamorous spa vacation for celebrities as portrayed in the media but a profound life changing process that offers hope for a better life.

Dr. Drew is the host of the nationally syndicated late night radio show Loveline as well as a respected practicing MD, board certified in internal and addiction medicine, who is staff at Huntington Hospital and assistant clinical professor of KECK USC School of Medicine. He is the author of the New York Times best seller The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America (Harper Collins) and Cracked: Putting Broken Lives Together Again (Harper-Collins). Dr. Drew co-authored the first academic study on celebrities and narcissism that was published in the Journal of Research in Personality (Elsevier) in September 2006, and is the first systematic, empirical scholarly study of celebrity personality. Dr. Drew hosted VH1's Sober House and Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew and can be seen on MTV's Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant. Additionally, Dr. Drew is hosting a new prime time show on HLN called Dr. Drew and will also be hosting a daytime syndicated talk show Life Changers with Dr. Drew on the CW Network coming Fall 2011.

    OH GOD AMY FISHER COME ON JEEZ WHY WOULD YOU GIVE THIS DISGUSTING MURDERER ONE MINUTE OF AIRTIME? THIS REALLY MAKES ME MAD. WHY DR. DREW?

  2. Ed says:

    There are five celebs pictured and 5 names listed in the article! I must be high and need rehab myself cuz you claim that there will be. SEVEN!!!!

  3. lisa says:

    michaele salahi, oh my god she will cry on every episode ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. chloe says:

    do they have to pay for this treatment or is it free? why cant he have real people on there that cant afford it (to get help) like me. Celebrities can afford to go anywhere for tretment but real folks like myself cant and dont have insurance to help out.

  5. mbm says:

    I’m also hearing that Maia Campbell (from Poetic Justice and In the House) and Spencer Pratt are going to be on this season as well.

    btw, Amy Fisher didn’t murder anyone (she served time for attempted murder) and since the incident with the Buttafuocos she’s been doing porn and working as a stripper.

  6. wendy haughn says:

    so sad about mike starr..i know dr.drew helped him all he could but it’s all up to them when they leave their care..R.I.P. mike starr…..

  7. Frances says:

    I am so sad to hear about Mike Starr. He was my favorite on the show & I was really pulling for him. I saw him when he came to visit the last rehabers & he was clean sober & looked great! I wonder what happened. I hope he was not alone. R.I.P. Mike Starr.

  8. kathy jacobson says:

    so sad to hear about Mike Starr…..

  9. Momster74 says:

    LANA,
    Get it straight Amy Fisher never murdered Mary Jo, she simply shot her. She was charged with aggrivated assault and served time. Does she not deserve as much help as any of the rest of them? Lohan did time too. It is just too bad that they could not get Lindsey Lohan or maybe even Charlie Sheen.lol

  10. angie says:

    just wondering when the new season is set to kick off! i cant wait to watch! i love Dr Drew hes amazing! Keep caring and dont ever give up!! :) hope you all succeed and do great things! RIP mike starr i was hoping for the best for you was really pulling for you and it saddens my heart to hear that your life ended! you had so many people on your side! just goes to show no matter how hard you try one slip up and it can be over in a sec! Wishing you all luck!~

  11. D says:

    OK…they call it celebrity rehab…other than a couple who are, or better yet, once were celebrities what do we have? Being someones dad doesn’t make you a celeb. Niether does attempted murder, party crashing or even playing on a ‘gameshow’…why not get the latest contestant on the Wheel of Fortunes second cousin once removed and call her a celebrity! Seriously?

  12. karen says:

    The DC housewife was reported kicked off rehab due not having any additions at all!! I would love to see Charlie Sheen on, now that will be a show.

  13. Robyn says:

    Michaele Salahi is the only reason I am watching.
    Never heard of the others. Just know Axel from Guns & Roses, so I know that band too.

  14. Roz L says:

    When is Season 5 underway? I’ve been watching this show since the first season, and I find it rather educuational. Despite the fact that these are celebrities going through this, Dr. Drew is still helping ADDICTS. Unfortunately, someone very dear to me has o.d.’d on heroine three times now and just recently went through a 28 day rehab stint. This is such a serious disease. Love to see that we can educate people this way.

  15. Dayna says:

    Steven Adler is going to end up like Jeff Conway…….DEAD

  16. Cray says:

    Amy Fisher? Come on…really? Oh yeah thats right she “only” went to her married lovers home and “only” shot her lovers wife in the face in an attempt to kill her….that’s all. Shame…Shame

  17. Mar says:

    I will not watch any show with Amy Fisher on it. I will advise all my friends to not watch the show if she is on it. She is not a celebrity. She is a criminal. If she wants to get sober let her go to AA and do it on her own. Her rehabilitation is not entertainment. I am ashamed that VH1 would allow her to be on their show.

  18. Rachel says:

    Please reconsider having Amy Fisher on your television program. Her need to recover from addiction should absolutely be helped. However, if she is in need of counseling, she should seek help outside of the spotlight. Placing her on a “Celebrity” television program will encourage teenagers to think of shooting a woman point-blank in the head as an action without serious consequences that can garner fame and success. “Celebrity” derives from the Latin “celebritas” – celebration. Attempted murder is never a reason for celebrity. Gun violence is never acceptable. Making a shooter into a celebrity will only inspire more young people to commit violent acts with guns.

  19. regina says:

    hey everyone, if amy fisher has a problem just as everyone else she also deserves treatment. who else needs it more than a woman who tried to murder the wife of someone she thought loved her. it may surprise us. i think it’s worth a watch.now michael lohan, come on lol. rest in peace mike starr. your no longer in pain dude. r.i.p. jeff. love and peace, gina

  20. mssoberchick says:

    I am sorry but Amy Fischer needs to be oriented to reality. Dr. Drew I have the utmost respect for you but she really needs to be confronted and no longer be allowed to blame everyone and everything else for her behavior. I have seen some substantial denial in my years of use and recovery and some true pathological liars but Amy Fischer really is the worst! As a recovering person myself she need no longer get to believe her own lies. I do not care if it’s the way she needs to cope with her mistakes welcome to sobriety we all have made some disturbing mistakes. I am taught tolerance and acceptance but I believe her denial is detrimental to her ever getting sober. Also to Chloe, ultimately no matter what treatment you go to they send you to a 12 step program to continue to stay sober. These are always free and truly the only way I have ever found to stay sober. I pray you may find your way to sobriety and receive some of the gifts I have been given.

  21. ChernobyOne says:

    Am I the only one who thinks that the Absolute commercials on the web during the Celebrity Rehab epipsode is messed up?!?!?! Super size your fastfood and then join Jenny Craig…the “medias” are whacked!

  22. michelle ramos says:

    Really Dr. Drew? I was once in a Tesla video for about 15 seconds that make me a celebrity too? Your techs are more celebrity status than your patients. Lol :-D

  23. Sharon says:

    I’ve been watching since the beginning. The last episode showed steven adler getting abusive once again, this time with Amy fisher. I know and understand his anger comes from withdrawl, but as I watch his abuse I relize that he is a scary person who may need sober help in a more confined situation. I’m sure the show will end up “with editing” as steven being best friends with everyone, but realistically if he does not deal with his own issues and continues to create drama in every other addicts life who is trying to get help. He will die plain and simple.
    I pray for them all. I hope their can be some sort of peace because I could not handle getting sober in this environment! Luck to all.

  24. sharonc says:

    I feel a great deal of sympathy for many of the victims of this disease on this seasons episodes. I honestly don’t think any of us “non-celeb” people should put down the patients. This is a hard battle and I have personally seen end experienced many people going through this process and know it is HARD!!! I hope the best for all of them, no matter their circumstances, This venue of getting help may be the only comfort as well as the most challenging that they have.

  25. cindy says:

    i find it pretty sad that ppl of certain oppurtunities scounder their opputunities and some over and over! theres ppl with less making their life without the pity party these “D” list celebs do…..is this just for the paycheck cause they cant earn it anyother way?

  26. Chrys says:

    I am hooked on this show. As a victim of child molestion, I wish Dr. Drew would do a season, on how to move forward as an adult and deal with the strain it puts on whole families, particularly when parents are do not protect their kids from abusers in the home.

    Our nation has a serious problem when 1 out of 3 or 4 people will buse molested.

    ….how do you keep from staying a victim.

  27. Hi my name is Tassiana i love watching your show. it gives me hope for my future because i have been threw a long journey. and to see people who are struggling in there own lives gives me hope. i hav e been abused verbaly and physically. i don’t trust a lot of people in my life. because they haved hurt me. and only thing that could do was cut, overdosed, swollowing items, i still haveing problems in my life. sometimes i want to give up on life. but i can’t. i struggle with trusting people. so i understand how the stars are struggling. i struggle everyday i life. people think that life easy but it really isn’t . sometimes the only way to deal with things are by hurting yourself. so we can cover the pain that you have been through. i just hope people wil be more open towards these stars and be more supportive of others. because they need the help. DON’T GIVE UP.

  28. Lew Scherer says:

    Dwight Gooden is one of my childhood heroes and it’s broken my heart over the years to watch him go through this ultimate battle of addiction. I too am in recovery and want wish Dr. K the best, thanks Dr. Drew for showing America REAL life and how to deal with everything that goes with it. Sincerely, Montana
