Celebrity Rehab has had its fair share of drama throughout its run on VH1.
With a grand total of five deaths — Mindy McCready, Jeff Conoway, Rodney King, Mike Starr and Joey Kovar — and their repercussions, it seems Dr. Drew doesn’t want to deal with it any longer.
The TV Doctor said:
“I don’t have any plans to do it anymore… I am tired of taking all the heat, it is just ridiculous.”
“It’s very stressful and very intense for me. And to have people questioning my motives and taking aim at me because people get sick and die, because they have a life threatening disease, then I have to take blame for that? Rodney King has a heart attack and I have to take blame for that? That’s really what is happening these days.”
As for the process of treating addiction, Dr. Drew explained:
“Treating addiction is treating addiction and we had a program that was second to none. We could handily anything — the sickest patients we would take. And we were good. We did it for 20 years. That’s enough.”
Well, he sure does sound pretty confident in his decision. On to the next, VH1??
