Eminem Talks About Recovery

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

It is no secret that alcohol and drugs are intertwined in the hip-hop world, and Eminem’s battle with a prescription drug addiction had been public for some time.  In an interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, the rapper said, “I guess I really had to reach down, reach deep down and look at myself and realize this is my fault, like, take responsibility for the way I’m living and stop blaming other people.”

As far as celebrities who have gone to inpatient rehabs, or anyone for that matter, this is one of the most powerful statements that can be made, because blaming the addiction on someone else or some made-up disease only take the responsibility away from the person.  Many non-12 step rehabs are responsibility-based instead of disease-based, which is just one reason why they are typically more successful.

Eminem’s latest single “I’m Not Afraid” went straight to number 1 off his new album, appropriately titled “Recovery”, which was just released.  If you’re looking for a drug recovery center, we can help.  Call our hotline now to find an inpatient rehab that works by dialing 1-800-670-9372.

Lindsay Lohan in Need of Inpatient Rehab?

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Let’s face it, the girl continues to bring all of the negative attention on herself and can’t seem to stay out of the celeb gossip/news.  Most recently, she missed a court hearing for being out of the country and a warrant was issued, then she posted bail and appeared and was ordered to wear an alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet. Then the other night at the MTV Movie Awards she supposedly changed seats to move away from Dr. Drew Pinsky (star of VH1′s Celebrity Rehab) and later that night the alarm on her ankle bracelet went off.  The next day a new warrant for probation violation was issued and she posted another 100K in bail money but claimed, through her lawyer, that she didn’t violate the conditions of her probation.

That’s a lot of money and drama in recent days for supposedly doing well.  Despite the alcohol situation, reports have surfaced that she is still taking “legitimate” prescription drugs that have a high potential for abuse.  While she attempted an inpatient drug rehab in the past, it is apparent by her behavior alone that the problem has not been solved and maybe she should be ordered to a long-term program, like a 90 day drug rehab.  Maybe this time she’ll choose a non-12 step drug rehab so she isn’t programmed into thinking that its okay to relapse because she has a disease.
