Lil Scrappy

In June, the rapper checked into rehab for marijuana addiction. After several failed court-order drug tests, Lil Scrappy claimed that he was addicted to the substance and needed help. After a 30-day stint, he was released on probation. Though, the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star will still have to submit to random drug tests.

Lindsay Lohan

With Lohan, it’s another year and another rehab stint. The latest one came after she violated the terms of her parole. What followed her release was the Lindsay comeback publicity tour, which involved a confessional interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter and filming a docu-reality series. Now, she’s planning to open a rehab clinic in her own name.

Eva Mendes

The actress went to rehab in January of 2008 under the guise of method acting. Mendes pegged her month-long stay to the lead role in Queen Of The South, claiming she was there for research. But it had been reported that she had secret alcohol and substance abuse problems. Only Kirsten Dunst, her rehab-mate at the time, knows for sure. Either way, she was in, she was out and the movie was never made.

Lamar Odom

Most recently, the basketball player checked himself into rehab for an exhausting 48 hours in order to save his career. A week prior, Odom was charged with a DUI, and his affinity for cocaine has long been rumored in the media. A rehab stint was the next best thing to save face in front of a judge and prevent any further negative outcome — well, with regard to his career, at least. His marriage to Khloe (and subplot on Keeping Up With The Kardashians) is a whole other story.

Tiger Woods

Following the explosive news that Woods had cheated on his wife with multiple women, the golfer immediately went into PR crisis mode. One of the moves involved a not-so-secret stint in a sexual addiction rehab clinic. There, Woods was said to focus on purging himself of his problems while coming to terms with what he did to Elin. The rehab turned out to be a posh resort that he checked out of in time for the new golf season.
