Patrick Kennedy Returns To Rehab

| Filed under: DrugsPolitik

ap-p-kennedy.jpg

Representative Patrick Kennedy, son of Senator Edward Kennedy, announced today, Friday, that he has checked himself into rehab. Again.

Kennedy, who has struggled with alcoholism, bipolar disorder and an addiction to prescription drugs, checked into rehab three years prior, after an early morning car crash which he admitted was the result of driving under the influence of prescription medication. And before that, he sought help as a teenager for his addiction to cocaine.

Kennedy has used his own problems as a platform for mental health issues in politics and said in a statement that "I hope that in some small way my decision to be proactive and public in my efforts to remain healthy can help remove the stigma that has served as a barrier for many Americans reluctant to get the help they needed."

We wish him luck on his road to recovery.

Don't fuck up again!

    Your comment "don't fuck up again" is every bit as ignorant as was Carrie Prejean's reply to your question about gay marriage.

    Mental health issues are a serious subject in this country, and the people living with same are not "fucking up" but rather coping with physio-biological illnesses.

    Your stupid, ignorant comment suggests that this is character flaw in Patrick, which it is not, just as it is not for any person suffering from such medical conditions.

    You need to apologize to the mental health community and to Representative Kennedy for your assinine, ignorant comment above.

    This is the guy who drove his car drunk off the road and the police in DC hushed up up and drove him home without citing him. How do these idiot congresspeople keep getting elected?!

    Re: robdcee – AMEN! He's just ignorant and is so hypocritical with putting up posts about charities, etc. and I cannot wait till his 15 minutes are up and he's thrown to the wolves.

    Right on "Me0101"

    Another Democrat Kennedy fucktard. But hey, their Dems, so it's perfectly OK. Perez, you are a true moron.

    Oh Come On- He's Who's rep???

    Re: robdcee – Shut the fuck up with that stupid bullshit. I am so sick of all the drunks and drug addicts saying they can't be responsible for their behavior because they have a 'disease.' Disease my ass - it's all about people who are too stupid and too lazy to put down the bottle or crack pipe. It's as bad as the disgusting homosexuals who say they can't stop sucking dick because they were 'born that way.' Being born a drunk or a addict or a homosexual is not an excuse for engaging in self-destructive behavior. Just stop drinking, stop drugging and stop sucking dick - that's all there is to it!

    Hy nice of you to have Posted this Perez, But i agree with the second commenter, ROBDCEE.
    Mental Health issues are something we all need to get out of the closet. I don't believe in psychiatry, but i believe in therapy, and the pursuit of a healthy mindset and body.

    Though i do not think you anyone an apology, Kennedy is a fuck up, but who isn't really? ANd at least Kennedy is parlaying his troubles into a fight for the greater good.

    Stop sweeping things under the rug, it is full of dirt, we need to all start clearing it out.

    What a chin! He looks like Quagmire from Family Guy.

    I feel bad for the guy. It's hard to be Bipolar. I am Bipolar 2 myself. I'm glad he's been open with his problem. I refuse to be ashamed of mine. It's no different than any other life-long AND life-threatening disease. So many Bipolars self-medicate too. It sounds like that is how he coped for a long time & then he became addicted. I wish him well. It's not an easy thing to struggle with…medicine has not found a way to stop the cycling…just make us cycle less and not quite as badly.

    All that said, there is no excuse for drunk driving. This is a key issue for me. If he ever does it again, he'll lose any sympathy he currently has from me. It's a shitty, selfish thing to do and there is NEVER any excuse for it.

    Re: JohnnyD – You are a dumbass, aren't you? How about I tell you to stop breathing? That's all there is to it, after all! If you did, I don't think you'd last very long without a respirator. Addicts can't stop using by themselves any more than you can stop breathing. They need help to stop. If they didn't, do you really think they wouldn't? They can lose their families, get AIDs, become homeless…die…God you stupid!

    Those Kennedy's are damage big time!!!!!…Drugs..Death…Murders…Rapists. I think the Kennedys are the worst family in American History.!!!!!!!!!!!

    Patrick Kennedy could do his consituents a favor by resigning from office and committing himself to recovery and to his family. I sincerely hope he does get well but that last thing we need in Congress is another Democrat with mental health problems. God knows we have enough of them already.



  18. 18

    America continues to be plagued by this fucked up family. They can't run their own lives, but think they can run ours.



  19. 19

    Don't you mean to say, Don't fuck up again, again?? How many chances does this guy get?

    The voters of Rhode Island deserve better. The man should resign as a show of honor and principle. The people deserve a sober representative.



  20. 20

    Hmmm. When a left wing Kennedy enters rehab you're all supportive. But let it be a conservative and you run crazy headlines about them being perverts. LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL ILLNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  21. 21

    Re: Lady B. Good – Apparently you know a lot about Mental Health.



  22. 22

    So, what have we here???? Another drunken Kennedy going off to rehab. But, Perez will support this asshole and mock any conservative that disagrees with Perez Hilton. In the post before this one, Perez rants about Palin. Get used to her being around P-Boy. She is going to beat your boy Obama in 2012. And, you know it. That is why a pervert loser like Letterman attacks her and it is why you attack her. And, as for Letterman, he treats women real well, doesen't he? Has a 20 year relationship with a woman, gets her pregnant and still screws other women on the side. Such a noble guy that Letterman. PALIN 2012!!!!!!!!!!



  23. 23

    good for him to recognize when he needs help — and good for him for being open —

    telling him not to fuck up again is like telling a cancer patient to not fuck up and let it spread — get educated!
