Ryan O'Neal Ignores Doctors Orders, Visits Son In Rehab

We hope that the right decisions are being made.

Although Redmond O'Neal's doctors had explicitly banned his father, Ryan, from having any contact with his son, the actor apparently went against their orders and visited him at the West El Lay rehab facility, where he is currently undergoing a treatment program in light of his latest arrest for heroin possession!

According to sources:

"Ryan was allowed to visit, against Redmond’s doctor’s orders, as it was thought the visit would be beneficial to Redmond. Rehab might not be the best fit for Redmond. Rehab is not jail, and there are concerns about the lack of security where he is now. It's not regimented and is run much more loosely than a prison would be. Redmond needs a very strict and secure environment, the last thing he needs is someone sneaking drugs into him. [Those close to Redmond are] extremely concerned for him. Redmond doesn't grasp that his addiction to heroin could kill him.”

So sad.

It seems like there's been a lot of disregard in the past for what this young man actually needs to get better, and we sincerely hope that everyone can remain committed to doing whatever they have to, regardless of how difficult it is, so he can get better from now on.

We don't want anymore tragedy to strike this family.

    Well, but maybe Ryan is reallyreally special, and nobody is going to tell HIM what to do.

    I have empathy for drug addicts, Redmond is no more a tragic story than the addicted people that have no money and are sitting in jail. It strikes me -through him - that there is a massive amount of confusion in our healthcare, and legal system in trying to figure out how to save people who are self distructive. It seems no approach works really seems to work… but one this for sure - Ryan is a powderkeg of relapse emotions, enablement, and self centerness - oh and I am sure a victim as well - and should leave his kid alone.

    This is the worst fucking dad since michael loahn. For god sakes, no wonder why his kids are all fucked up, it's his fault. The Dr's tell him it's best for his son's rehab if he does not see him, so he does what's best for him, not his son, and goes anyway. What a fucking loser. Farah is probably happy she's dead so she doesn't have to see this douche ever again.

    Let me guess….he's in ANOTHER 12-Step religious cult treatment program, that's GUARANTEED to FAIL 100% of the time!

    I wish Redmond all the best….hope he grasps the seriousness of his addiction and chooses life. As for Ryan….nothing nice to say about him at all. Feel so sorry for his kids.

    After watching a couple episodes of that show with his daughter I can understand why the kids are messed up. This guy (Ryan) takes responsibility for absolutely nothing in his life. EVERYTHING is somebody else s fault. He also has very selective memory.

    Great reporting, asshole. I recall Ryan getting busted with Redmond a few years ago, so now he's a loving concerned father?

    Redmond is no longer a child. He has already been given SEVERAL chances. It's ridiculous how poor addicts are treated so harshly, while rich addicts skate in the criminal justice system. It is sickening.
    Ryan O'Neal is an abusive father who punched another son in the face, causing him to lose a tooth. Now he's blaming Oprah for his problems? Disgusting.
