Steven Adler Learns About Mike Starr's Death on 'Celebrity Rehab' (VIDEO)

'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'Steven Adler and the other patients on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1) got a sobering reminder about how dangerous addiction can be. It was an especially difficult moment for Adler, though, because of the close personal relationship he had with former 'Celebrity Rehab' patient Mike Starr.

Dr. Drew and the staff learned that Starr had died of a drug overdose shortly after getting prescription pain medication. Shelly Sprague broke the news to Adler, who immediately knew what had taken his friend's life.

Sprague then told Adler, "I really care about you and I don't want to see you die of this." Grieve the loss of your friend, but also learn from the choices he made. Next week, these patients will be "graduating" from Dr. Drew's facility and moving on with their lives. Maybe this tragic reminder will help them stay on track with their sobriety.
