Steven Adler From G n’R Back in Rehab
Steven Adler in need of a tune up for sure!
Former GUNS N’ ROSES and current ADLER’S APPETITE drummer Steven Adler has confirmed that he has joined the cast of VH1‘s “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” for another season.
Adler appeared on season two of “Rehab” and the first season of the spin-off show “Sober House” back in late 2008 and early 2009. Adler then went on to stints in real rehab centers after being ordered to by a judge as part of a DUI bust.
In a series of postings on his Twitter profile, Adler wrote, “As you all may already know, I’m back here at ‘Celebrity Rehab’ again. Working on making sure I stay on the right track! I’m working with Dr. Drew and Bob Forrest and it’s going great so far!
“Thanks again as always for all of your prayers, love and support! Everything will be fine! I’m feeling great and it will only get better!
“I’m here for just a good tune-up!! Thank you all !!! It feels good to be alive!”
Also scheduled to appear on Season 5 of “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” are Michael Lohan, Jeremy Jackson, Dwight Gooden, Michaele Salahi and Bai Ling.
Previous seasons of “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” have featured celebrity patients undergoing detoxification and treatment at a center in the Los Angeles area. The series chronicle the patients’ intensive 21-day program with both group and one-on-one therapy and non-traditional therapies like art and music. Returning to the show to help Dr. Drew are expected to be drug counselor Bob Forrest and resident technician Shelly Sprague who have each spent years on both sides of the rehab fence. After they complete the program, the patients will be strongly encouraged to continue their treatment in a sober living facility or treatment center for at least three months at VH1‘s expense.
“Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House” included footage of Adler being arrested on July 18, 2008 after he showed up at a sober-living home high and in possession of heroin, and could barely stand up because he was so blitzed.
