KwameKilstrawberry: Matticus: How is he a quack? Looking for examples.

I can answer that in a roundabout way.  I lost all respect for Dr. Drew when I saw him on The Today Show gravely discussing how dangerous it was for women to read "Fifty Shade of Grey".

Screw you, Pinsky.  I read "9 1/2 Weeks" while babysitting when I was 11 years old.  Now that I'm pushing 50, I sure as shiat don't need a farking celebrity doctor tell me what my pretty little head can comprehend with or without reaching for the smelling salts.

Maybe he's trying to protect you from BAD WRITING.  Yknow, Twilight-level bad writing.

OhioUGrad: So can we get a season with Bieber, Rhianna, Chris Brown, and a few other of those talentless douches to see if we can continue the trend.

/they don't need to be addicts

Taylor Swift needs to be there

I have no idea what the difference in age is besides the lower one is more recent.

About 50 pounds.

secularsage: People might disagree with his methods and his clear desire to cling to celebrity, but as far as medical practice goes, he's the real deal.

Wrong, the douchebag requires that his patients sell out their treatment and their Hippa rights in exchange for engorging that mass murderers ego. He is easily the worst "Doctor" on TV.

Cool post otherwise.

secularsage: To the Dr. Drew haters, unlike pretty much every TV and radio personality who uses the prefix "Dr.", Drew Pinsky is a board-certified physician (which means he has to regularly undergo credentialing to practice medicine) and is recognized as an addiction medicine specialist.

I stopped listening to him when he claimed LSD was bad for your body. Talk about negative psychological effects all you want, but to claim that it causes physical damage is pure bullshiat and he should know better.

He put Heidi Fleiss and Tom Sizemore together in rehab. After Tom had been convicted of beating her ass. He took money from drug companies to prescribe anti-depressants. He somehow manages to be within 5 minutes of a television studio every time one of them dies. Maybe he is the one offing them?

OtherLittleGuy: Too bad he didn't stick with Big Brother. The carnage of houseguests would have rivaled "Dead Set".

That just gave me a fantastic idea for a reality show.  Gather a bunch of celebrity addicts and lock them in a house togther.  Then have them compete in a series of events to win a small amount of drugs of their choice.  Don't win the challange, then no high for you.  No need to create drama, the guests are bound to do it to them selves.

On a serious note, "Dr." Drew is a damn quack.  He's no better then Dr. Phil in most regards.  Anyone who listens to him for any advice deserves exactly what happens to them.

None of then actually got any help, all they got was thrown back into the same kind of situation that screwed them up in the first place, only more so, because they were back in the spotlight again, but this time, woefully unprepared.

Dr. Douche should have been investigated for malpractice a couple of times, because there were a few of them that shouldn't have even been there yet.

In any responsible facility, the patient is detoxed in an actual hospital because of all the physical risks of detox, and by the time they get to rehab, they're passed the seeing spiders and pissing themselves stage.
But, I guess people shaking, puking, convulsing, and screaming in agony makes for better television.

FriarReb98: I love that the article never mentions who the 4th & 5th cast members to die are.  I mean, I know you can just Wiki it, but still.

The article was referring to having three patients from a single season die.  That is why they didn't mention the other two.  They were on different seasons.
