Drug Rehab and Celebrities

Whereas it used to be shameful for a celebrity to admit to an alcohol or drug addiction, these days it's practically en vogue for celebrities to enter drug rehab. The celebrity lifestyle of fame and fortune often carries a high emotional price tag. Child stars who had it and lost it as well as average people who find themselves suddenly shot into celebrity status often find relief in alcohol and drugs, which can quickly turn destructive. The popular show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky is a very realistic window into alcoholism and drug addiction in the celebrity realm, revealing that addiction crosses all cultural, social and socioeconomic boundaries.

At SouthCoast Recovery, we respect all backgrounds, cultures, races and preferences. You can relax in the knowledge that our drug rehab facility is confidential and your information is safe with us, no matter who you are.

Celebrities and Drug Rehab: Negative Exposure?

The exposure of celebrities now entering drug rehab can cast both a negative or positive light. On the one hand, the indulgent lifestyle of celebrities who have fallen into alcohol or drug addiction is not a positive role model for young fans who may emulate their behavior. Curiosity may evoke a desire to find out what alcohol and drug use is all about in spite of the obviously negative consequences. Teenagers especially may hold up a celebrity's tryst in drug rehab as the ultimate act of rebellion. A celebrity's repeated attempts at drug rehab only to meet with continued failure may also send the message that drug rehab does not work.

The other message to be gleaned from celebrities and drug rehab is infinitely more positive. Alcohol and drug addiction is a serious disease that can afflict anyone, even the rich and famous. Rather than being viewed as a negative stigma to be ashamed of, drug rehab has actually become the latest en vogue trend for celebrities who overdo it, whether the addiction is alcohol, drugs, sex or gambling. No longer is it such a shameful issue discussed in whispers. These days reports of celebrities entering drug rehab barely nets a reaction. This exposure to the destructive influence of alcoholism and drug addiction and the willingness to get help by entering drug rehab can encourage others who are struggling to overcome their resistance and seek drug rehab as well.

Celebrities and Drug Rehab: Dual Diagnosis

While drug rehab seems to be a revolving door for some celebrities, drug rehab can be effective the first time around. The success of drug rehab is dependent upon the willingness of the person who is receiving alcohol or drug treatment. Getting sober is only the beginning.

It's important to remember that beneath the fortune and fame, celebrities are humans who have the same struggles as the rest of us. Celebrities and others who struggle with alcohol or drug addiction may have underlying mood disorders such as depression or anxiety that contribute to or provoke chemical abuse. This is known as dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders. A successful recovery depends on the appropriate evaluation for effective alcohol and drug treatment.

SouthCoast Recovery offers effective clinical treatment for dual diagnosis as well as the benefits of advanced holistic therapies. Drug rehab is just the beginning of a lifelong recovery from alcohol or drug addiction. Even celebrities have to keep diligent in their sobriety in order to avoid slipping back into drug addiction. Drinking or using drugs is merely symptomatic of deeper issues that need to be uncovered and healed. SouthCoast Recovery offers a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the healing of mind, body and spirit.
