Number Of Babies Born Addicted To Painkillers Has Tripled Since 2000

More and more babies are being born addicted to painkillers!

Back in the '80s and '90s, there was an increase in babies being born addicted to crack.

Now it seems, prescription painkillers are the drug of choice.

Pregnant women are more frequently using or abusing painkillers like Vicodin or Oxycontin. The number of them has increased fivefold from 2000 to 2009.

That's terrible.

It's not that more pregnant women are using drugs, it's just that pregnant women who would already be using drugs are using painkillers more than anything else.

The babies can be treated with methadone for withdrawal symptoms (the same stuff recovering heroin addicts take) and during treatment all they do is cry and are miserable.

Poor babies.

Just because the drugs are legal doesn't mean they're any better for your baby!

The Situation Is Donzo With Rehab

Filed under: DrugsThe SituationRehabReality TV

The situation is sober

Now let's just hope it worked!

The Situation has checked out of his Utah rehab center, Cirque Lodge, where he was being treated for an addiction to painkillers and alcohol.

He seemed in good spirits and even snapped a few pictures with fans on board his flight before leaving the Beehive State.

We're glad he got treatment and hope it was the help he needed. Five seasons of nonstop partying at the Jersey Shore would take a toll on anyone. Let's hope he's able to resist temptation when he goes back with the gang for a sixth time around.

Stay strong, Sitch!

Filed under: DrugsRehabHealthAddictionSurgery

Tatum not in rehab

Our deepest apologies to Tatum O'Neal! Yesterday we heard she was back in rehab to treat a cocaine addiction, but apparently sources were giving out completely false information!

Instead of a relapse, the Oscar winner actually had back surgery and has been admitted to a treatment facility where professionals will supervise her use of pain killers so she DOESN'T get addicted. Her rep explained:

Are you kidding? Was she seriously THAT in demand?

Sources close to the production of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew claimed that professional homewrecker and slam pig Rachel Uchitel originally turned down an offer to appear on the reality show, but producers bumped up her paycheck to $500,000 so she'd agree to be treated for her addiction to sleeping with married men pills!

WTF?

Well, we suppose girl's gotta do something to stay relevant! Looks like they offered more to her than The Donald!

Horrific.

Thoughts?? Who do U think she's going to try and fuck in the Celebrity Rehab house?

Our money is on crackhead Jeremy London!

Lindsay Is Reportedly Weening Herself Off The Prescriptions

ap10070614523255__opt1.jpg

Could it be? Could Lindsay Lohan possibly be cleaning up her act?

Probably not. Let's be serious. But it's nice to think that she might be!

Dina and Ali Sources close to the hard-pAArtying wacktress are claiming that although she's prescribed FIVE different medications that she's allowed to take on probation - which include the antidepressant Zoloft, the antidepressant Trazodone, Adderall, Nexium for acid reflux, and the super painkiller Dilaudid - gurlfriend is only currently using the ADD med and the Nexium!

Hmmm. Maybe she realizes there's no way she's going to get any of that shiz refilled now that she's going to prison and she's trying to salvage what she's got left!

We kid, we kid…sort of.

Hopefully this is true, but even if so, we all know how this story goes with her. She'll be 'clean' for a week and then reward herself by being so put-together with a cocktail of pills!
