'Celebrity Rehab': Bob Discovers Steven Adler Lied About His Sobriety (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 12th 2011 3:42AM
Steven Adler, 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'Sex, drugs and rock and roll is an expression almost as old as rock music. For Steven Adler these things may be too interconnected for him to successfully tour with his band and find sobriety, as we saw on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1).

When Dr. Drew's Head Counselor, Bob Forrest, stopped in to check on Adler, he was disappointed to find the former Guns N' Roses drummer was still smoking marijuana, and apparently on a daily basis.

To emphasis the severity of Adler's addiction, Forrest asked, "Why couldn't you just not smoke pot for a day? That's what I want to point out to you. You knew I was coming here."

'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.

celebrity rehabSteven Adler walked out the door after a tense discussion with Dr. Drew and Amy Fisher on 'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew' (Sun., 9PM on VH1).

Claiming that Fisher's dishonesty and unwillingness to share with the group was holding everyone back, the former Guns N' Roses drummer charged Fisher with living in denial.

"What's wrong with denial?" Drew asked.

Steven Adler Yells at Amy Fisher in Group Therapy on 'Celebrity Rehab' (VIDEO)

Steven Adler, 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'Amy Fisher is very withdrawn so far on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1) and it's not sitting well with former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler. Both are patients, but Adler took serious issue with Fisher in two consecutive therapy sessions.

First, he yelled at her when she compared the rehab facilities to prison, defending their current accommodation as far better. Then, in a later group session, Fisher declined to identify herself as an addict or an alcoholic. Instead she said she was just listening right now and had nothing to contribute.

"Might as well identify yourself as what you are," Adler told her. "Because you wouldn't be here if there was nothing."

Three Takeaways From the Entertaining, Depressing 'Celebrity Rehab' Premiere

by Alex Moaba, posted Jun 27th 2011 5:45PM
'Celebrity Rehab' is back, with a mostly new set of drug-addicted formerly famous people seeking treatment from Dr. Drew and his team of specialists at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

On Friday we talked to a shrink who told us he had serious concerns that the show was exploitative and gave a false impression of what actually happens in real drug rehab.

Today we are much less concerned with that theoretical nonsense and want to discuss all the crazy, terrible and embarrassing things we saw on last night's show. Let's get to it, then.

Jennifer Gimenez Panics Over Return of Abusive Steven Adler to 'Celebrity Rehab' (VIDEO)

Jennifer Gimenez, 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'Steven Adler's relapse back into drugs was cause for real alarm on the fifth season premiere of 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1). When he was a part of the show in 2008, he physically and verbally assaulted rehab technician and former addict Jennifer Gimenez.

When she heard he was coming back into the facility, she had a full-blown panic attack. "Not only did he physically abuse me," she said. "He emotionally and verbally abused me. So all those fears came back."

She was able to talk it out and calm down, realizing that Adler on drugs us not the man himself. "I think Steven Adler when he's on drugs is a monster," she said. But the idea is to get Steven Adler off of the drugs and have him be the man he should be.

'Celebrity Rehab' Grads: Where Are They Now?

by Lisa de Vincent, posted Jul 31st 2010 3:00PM
Among the well-known faces who appeared on the first season of VH1's heartbreaking reality series 'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew,' one looked especially familiar. But his body, formerly so agile, resembled that of a hunched-over (albeit youngish-looking) old man. It was the once-vibrant 'Taxi' actor Jeff Conaway, who looked like he's had a rough time of it since his glory days. Sadly, his first season on the show was torturous, and he returned for season 2 to combat drug addiction once again after a number of surgeries.

For three seasons now, doctor-to-the-stars Drew Pinsky has helped everyone from former wrestlers to adult film stars kick their destructive drug habits, some attempts more successful than others. Conaway's is just one of many ongoing recovery stories resulting from the show.

Cast announced for the next Celebrity Rehab

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 10th 2008 4:41PM

Celebrity RehabThe first thing I thought of when I learned the celebrity lineup on the next edition of VH-1's Celebrity Rehab was "wow, this could get ugly." The New York Post is reporting that the celebs involved in the second edition of the show include Jeff Conaway (who was on the first edition but decided to leave before it was over), Gary Busey, Rodney King, Sean Stewart (Rod's son), former American Idol contestant Nikki McKibben, Tawny Kitean, Amber Smith, and former Guns 'n Roses drummer Steven Adler.

This is really sad for all of the obvious celebrities-doing-reality shows reasons, but I'm also a little irritated by Dr. Drew Pinsky, who is the leader/executive producer of this show. Once upon a time I'm sure Pinsky simply wanted to help people, but now, although I'm sure he'd rather see these people cleaned up than going through addiction and other problems (obviously), there's more than a whiff of exploitation in the air. Like Dr. Phil, he could easily counsel these people away from the cameras. Why does everything (and everyone) have to be on television now?

Filming for the season began on Monday and the show will debut in October.
