‘Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited’ checks up on celebrity patients from VH1 series

Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew

(press release)

For almost five years, the genre-defining reality series “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” has enlightened viewers about the painful and trying path to recovery for people with alcohol and drug addictions. Anyone familiar with the treatment process for addiction knows that recovery is a lifelong process and some succeed where others fail. Life outside the protective environment of rehab is rough as patients can fall into old routines and potential relapse

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited” is a series of four, “where are they now” specials with Dr. Drew and his head counselor Bob Forrest visiting patients from the first four seasons of “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” Featuring new interviews and home visits with Andy Dick, Rodney King, Seth Binzer, Tom Sizemore, Rachel Uchitel, Leif Garrett, Janice Dickinson and many more of the most infamous ‘celebrity rehabbers’ to date, these specials will offer a frank look at life months and, in some cases years, after rehab. While many participants on the series have been successful with recovery, viewers will see that in some instances, not even Dr. Drew’s patients are immune to the perils of relapse. “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited” premieres Sunday, November 20th at 9pm ET/PT (8pm Central) on VH1.
