Hey Dennis, You are one tough cookie. Denial is sometimes the toughest phase to go through as an addict. You definately have alcoholic characteristics. I am a recovering alcoholic who has enjoyed sobriety for the last 9 years. I had to get honest with myself just like you do. Once you get honest the program begins. Dennis, while in Vegas I have seen you in action. Lets just say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Please take this program seriously it will save your life.You are a competitor do not let this disease beat you. Listen and get educated. Surround yourself with great support, go to meetings and stay sober. Everything you are saying I have done. We have so much in common. However, I have one thing you do not, 9 years of sobriety. I hope and pray that you get the program and eventualy enjoy the spiritual happiness it will bring you. I remember, in group one day the doctor asked everyone to explain why they were here in rehab. When it was my turn he asked me and i said," it"s because we have weak minds." I think even you would agree to that. It still may get worse before it gets better just hang in there.Take it one day at a time brother. Work your program and stay clean. Just remember this is one disease that even the Voodo Lounge can't cure. I will keep you in my prayers. If i can help in any way, feel free to contact me.
when Mindy had her seizure - couldn't it have been caused by her withdrawal from benzo's? If stopped suddenly seizures are almost guaranteed - yet that's not even mentioned
Fred, before you make comments that make you sound like an idiot, do some research! Not only can falling off a bed dislocate a shoulder, but siezures have been known to break bones!!!
Maybe even a shower she looks like she smells as bad as she looks...
I would like to see her wash her hair at least once.
Not me! I love her style!
i think what dr. drew is doing for these people is just great. everytime i see mike starr, it strikes a cord in my heart. my dad was a methadone addict for 17 years. as a family, we struggled everyday with his addiction. methadone is not usually seen as a dangerous drug because it is administered by a health professional. what alot of people dont know is the awful effects that it has on people. my dad has been in recovery now for more than a year and i KNOW that mike can get clean as long as he follows the recovery plan and twelve steps. i am so proud of dr. drew for bringing this awful drug out into the open so the public can know the evil of what it really is. it doesn't help heroine addicts kick drugs. it IS a drug and just like dr. drew says, "it takes your soul away." thank you dr. drew for all that you do. my prayers go out to all of the patients at pasadena recovery center. dr. drew, you are my hero!!
Who wants to see Shelly get a makeover???
This is for Tom.... Tom I am a former Navy SeAL, alot of times I found my self in a situation where I needed to be strong, and what kept me strong is that Image that you always protrayed in Saving Pvt. Ryan, and in Black Hawk down. I had to reach for something, and that is what I reach for to be that guy. I have seen alot of men go down, but i have seen alot of Boys trying to be that strong Man that you were in battle. even me. Tom I know what you are going throug, I know that battle your not alone my friend. we are not young anymore to ******** ourself thinking that we are we are old enough to know better and do things right. I too have to battle each day and I have to accept the fact that I cant be who I once was, Its hard! I give you that but the diffreance is that you are surrounded by people who love you and are willing to help with your battle, you still have that team that wont let you down. Believe in them Son! as we all did you! I will never forget this" Danny, Give me a no **** assesment" you were true. you knew it was time to surrender now I ask you to surrender let go and let God! Tom do it for yourself first and formost, and do it for all of us! even we out in the "Sand Box" need a hero, john wayne is dead, and Clint eastwood is busy... so that leaves you Capt. you need me, you know how to find me. CPO. (Ret. USN) 1

vh1 ---for us that want to really understand and help others , we want more of the show . not repeaticious scenes from before the commercial . i feel cheated that you dont show very much .. shelly , i feel for you !
tHIS MAY NOT WORK ON ALL THE PATIENTS AT ONCE ,BUT i KNOW IN TIME ,GOD WILL WORK THROUGH THIS STAFF
Oh I love Dr. Drew and what he is doing. He is ,my hero.
FRED YOU AREN'T A SPECIALIST.IT IS POSSIBLE TO KNOCK HER SHOULDER OUT OF JOINT BY FALLING OF THE BED
These aren't additional clips - they're a synopsis of each program.
The patients are serious on drugs that life depended on it. Stopping the intake of drugs becomes painful to them. I'm glad Mindy is better. She fell onto the floor when her body was stiff all over, that's like breaking ice. The brain and body are functioning in toxins. Tom barely gave himself a break away from drugs. It's intense.
I really feel bad for Heidi. I feel the reason she has secluded herself to a life with only drugs & her birds is because she feels betrayed & used by people & the birds are the only living thing she has that love her & want nothing in return for that love. Its very sad that she has lived that way. I really hope this rehab works for her!
This site is bogus. Your "bonus clips" are nothing new. There is no way Mindy separated her shoulder rolling of the bed. Surgery in the future? What a joke.
