New Details Into Harvey Weinstein Being Difficult In Treatment: 'He Doesn't Think He Needs Rehab'

| Filed under: RehabAddictionSexControversy

Harvey Weinstein needs to do better.

Harvey Weinstein's treatment amid his sexual harassment and assault scandal is NOT going well!

With reports revealing the disgraced producer isn't taking it seriously, it's being said he's become difficult in facing his issues "head-on."

A source told People the 65-year-old is staying at a luxury hotel in Arizona while attending the outpatient sessions, but still:

"He's not listening to anyone. He agreed to treatment, but he doesn't think he needs rehab."

A different insider disagrees, saying Harvey "wants help":

"His team set him up at a secure place to get him the help he needs — he knows and wants help."

Unfortunately for him, reports of him being hostile in group sessions by ranting about conspiracy theories against him, being rude by showing up late, falling asleep while others are talking, and accepting phone calls on his banned cell phone aren't going for him.

The source continued, adding "he is making plans to return to LA in the near future."

That might explain why "he is focused on business and in constant contact with people," as the confidant continued to spill.

He sounds delusional.

Especially as the LAPD is opening an investigation as two new women have accused him of rape.

It sounds like Harvey Weinstein might be in serious denial in rehab!

While the movie producer voluntarily admitted himself in what is actually an intensive outpatient facility, which allows him to stay at a hotel some nights, it's being reported he's gone off over the allegations of sexual assault and rape, according to Page Six.

As we previously reported, more stars have continued to come out about their own interactions with The Weinstein Company cofounder, like Lupita Nyong'o most recently sharing her own massage incident.

Russell Brand has come a long way since his days of battling addiction.

While he'll never forget the downward spiral of his younger years, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall actor doesn't like to think about his drug abusing past.

In a candid new interview with Us Weekly, the comedian said reliving his encounters with heroin — which began at just 19 years old — is too dangerous to dwell on.

The father-of-one, who is 14 years sober, confessed:

"I can't think about it too much because I start to miss it. If you're in pain, psychological pain, you feel like you have a knot in your tummy. If pain is a fist, heroin dives into it, opens it up and relaxes you. It feels so beautiful. It feels like a cuddle, like comfort, like being in your mother's arms. It's so sweet and perfect."

But the euphoric sensation doesn't last long. After getting hooked on the drug, Brand said his world was starting to unravel — he was already "smoking too much, drinking too much, doing cocaine, taking quite a lot of acid and looking at too much porn."

Soon, the comedian was all alone, with nothing in his life except the drugs he was addicted to. He explained:
