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.
