Los Angeles, CA – June 7, 2011 – 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.

    Are they getting real help? I know people are agitated when getting off drugs, but it seems like the cast members argue too much. I’d rather forgo the “Real Housewives / Jerseylicious” type drama show and have something real.

  2. Avanette Morris says:

    I saw a few scenes from CR5. There is going to be a young lady on there that I grew up with here in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I really would like to see this episode and record it. Her name is Latesha Getty(Benett). I may have spelled her name wrong. When does this specific show airs? The previews showed three of her beautiful children. Thanks!

  3. Charlie Chadwick says:

    Amy Fisher? When is a convicted felon a celebrity? Dr. Drew really have you forgotten the definition difference of infamous rather than famous? Now we are calling felons and murderers celebrities to get ratings? Who is the fame “addictive” personality now? I totally had respect for the importance of the issue of addictive behaviors and their need for help, but now the doctor needs a doctor.

    dr drew i was a meth addict for 12 years i got very bad and lost it all for dope however when i was homeless on the street and was walking barefoot to a hospital after being beaten by my boyfriend who was having crystal psyhcosis when i got to the hospital i was treated ls like i was garbage and was told no domestic shelter would take me in until i had 6 months clean right then and there i decided to get clean and that was 4 years ago im doing great and still work with a sponser but i dont forget where i came from and i never miss an episode of celibrity rehab i really relate to what they are going through and it reminds me where i came from and i know that i am one hit one slam one snort away from losing my life again your show keeps my life in prospective and and gives me hope for all addicts that still suffer thanks dr drew for all you do love sandy

  5. George says:

    Yeah, he sure helped Jeff Conaway didn’t he? Why do people watch this trash?

  6. Luvcattzz says:

    I just watched the episode with Dwight Gooden, and my heart goes out to him, obviously he’s very remorseful about his alcohol and drug use, I saw how he was crying about the incident with his son, as a recovering addict myself I feel for Dwight and hopes he can forgive himself and move on. I wish you the best Dwight and hope you can find peace in your heart.

    I think Jen is the biggest drama queen. If steven really abused her so badly they woulnt let him continue to be on the show. I think she likes the attention bc she is not so fotunate looking and likes to be a drama queen for attention.. thats messed up considering she is the “staff”. on another note.. i cannot believe hobie (jeremy jackson) is a roid head now.. he was a cutie but seeing his home video of him shootin himself up with steriods is a llittle freaky. i dont know why guys think girls love big men… i like my men on the smaller side anything bigger feels like im sleeping next to a big piece of beef jerky ew. @charlie chadwick, amy fisher was a celebrity bc she was created one by the tabloids, she was on a lot of coverrs of tabloids and given nicknames and talked about so much she turned into a celebrity, now she is a porn actress so in this day and age its safe to say she is a “celebrity”. anyways, that is all i have to say. good day.

    my heart goes out to sean young. i too am a recovering alcoholic, and it has been a very difficult journey. but worth it. if i could say one thing it would be, to stay with, life is soo much better now. its hard to face our demons and feelings. but i have learned after alot of help that i can do it and and your feelings won’t kill you. even though im not an actress, i too have made an ass of myself many times and done things i regret, and in a small town, where people don’t forget. but i hold my head high and know what i have accomplished even if they don’t. i worry about about what the people that i love think of me, not the world. i hope you stay with it and don’t give up, every day is better. i only wish you the best. sending prayers you way. lisette

    and one more thing, everyone should be blessed with a doctor like dr. drew and his staff. that place is paradise compared to where some people end up trying to get help!!!!

    Amy Fisher. I can’t believe this heffa is complaining bout the press ruined her life and she cant find a job. You did that to yourself dummy! You are no different from anybody else who did a crime went to jail got out and can’t find a job! You think you are special because they made a lifetime movie after you!? You should have thought about your future when you shot that innocent lady in the face!! She did not deserve that, but you, you deserve everything that comes to you. We all make mistakes, but man or woman up to what you did. She did that and now she expects someone to feel sorry for her. When she decides to stop blaming other people for what she did she might be alright. She sounds like such a idiot, I know people right around my town that deserve to be on this show more than she does!
