Dr. David Drew Pinsky, also known as Dr. Drew, has recently partnered with VH1 for a third season of the hit reality show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Premiering in early January, Dr. Drew once again attempts to tame the beast within his famous patients.
The new season promises to outshine the past two as viewers witness Heidi Fleiss, Dennis Rodman , Mackenzie Phillips from One Day At A Time, America’s Next Top Model Lisa D’Amato, Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, Tom Sizemore and others battling their demons.
‘The series will chronicle the patients’ intensive 21-day program with both group and one-on-one therapy and non-traditional therapies like art and music. Returning to the show to help Dr. Drew are drug counselor Bob Forrest and resident technician Shelly Sprague who have each spent years on both sides of the rehab fence. Dr. Drew is also bringing in some additional prominent physicians to help him give the patients supplementary one-on-one care.’
Recently, Dr. Drew made headlines commenting on Lindsay Lohan’s latest display of affection for alcohol saying:
“I’m convinced that she’ll get sober one day. But I’m afraid that between now and then, she may get a nearly mortal wound of some type. I’m really convinced that something horrible is going to have to happen to her before she really gets over it and embraces sobriety. She needs to give it up. And it’s going to be a while before she does. I have this image that she’s going to lose a limb or something before she does. And it scares me.”
To which Lindsay Lohan tweeted:
“I thought REAL doctors talked to patients in offices behind closed doors. Am I wrong? Hmmmmm. I think NOT. Yay!”
According to Vitals, Dr. David Drew Pinsky is an internist specializing in addiction medicine. He had acquired his MD at the four star Univesity of South California and completed his residency training in internal medicine at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, CA.
