Mindy McCready committed suicide on Sunday with a self-inflicted gunshot, and after learning that prescription drugs and alcohol were found in her system at the time of her death — she's also the fifth person to pass that appeared on VH1's Celebrity Rehab within the last two years.
The show ran from 2008 to 2011, and had a total a five seasons.
Referencing McCready's death, the show's former host, Dr. Drew Pinksy said:
"Mental health issues can be life threatening and need to be treated with the same intensity and resources as any other dangerous potentially life threatening medical condition. Treatment is effective. If someone you know is suffering please be sure he or she gets help and maintains treatment."
Before Mindy committed suicide, Jeff Conaway, Joey Kovar, Mike Starr and Rodney King were the other four individuals that appeared on Celebrity Rehab, and are sadly no longer with us.
The country star died at the young age of 37.
