Gross! A Rehab game show?
What does a 'Celebebrity' Rehab Contestant WIN? Do participants get monetary awards for each week they participate in Dr Drew Pinsky's TV exploitation experience?
How dare he USE Lindsay Lohan's name to further his own agenda.
Shamefull

Question
Dr Drew Pinsky's patients (& staff) all mandated (by VH1 EP) to take WHAT?
Answer
“The network requires me to do stuff with my patients that has no relevance to anything. Like everyone on the set has to take (herpes medication) Valtrex,” Dr. Drew Pinsky said.
Reality TV Producers are prescibing for an MD?
I'm waiting for a (Real) answer, Dr Drew.....
& what about repeat rehab guests? Side effects explained? etc.

What other "stuff" Dr Drew? & "forced" to do ?
(Original article posted by Andy Dehnart / June 3, 2010).
VH1 requires Celebrity Rehab cast, crew to take herpes meds.
There’s a big threat on the set of several reality shows, and it is herpes: Both the cast and crew of two major cable reality shows take anti-herpes medication. That was revealed in The Hollywood Reporter’s entertaining roundtable conversation between Jersey Shore producer SallyAnn Salsano, Phil Keoghan, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Kathy Griffin, Dirty Jobs producer Craig Piligian, and Randy Jackson.
“The network (VH1)requires me to do stuff with my patients that has no relevance to anything. Like everyone on the set has to take (herpes medication) Valtrex,” Dr. Drew Pinsky said.
On Jersey Shore, Salsano said,“We hand it out like M&Ms!‘Hey kids, it’s time for Valtrex!’ It’s like a herpes nest. They’re all in there mixing it up.” She also said that “I do a full medical but I also do a lot of STD stuff,” apparently indicating STD testing.
Speaking of medical things, Phil—who was surprisingly absent for most of the discussion—said “we have medical staff, they go everywhere.” And Dr. Drew said that “the psych testing that is done routinely on reality TV is worthless. They are worthless. They’re good tests, done by good people, but we don’t even know what we need to measure to put people on a reality show.
When Salsano said, I actually find it helpful,” Drew replied,“From a medical standpoint: worthless. I got a profile of (‘Rehab’ participant) Steven Adler and they’re like,‘You cannot deal with this man, it’s impossible, he’s going to kill himself.’ But I’ve already got him at the hospital, he’s my patient, what are you talking about? I take care of him everyday. It’s not a problem. Give me something useful about what’s likely to happen with cameras (around).
But no one knows.”
No one knows!!

A wannabe actor or very bad doctor?
Kidney function tests being done? Or are possible side effects ignored because they're Addicts?
I'm waiting (with Nurse) for an answer..........

Does MichaelJLohan know about this Valtrex?
Was it given in liquid form? or did the 'patients' knowingly take Anti-viral medicine?
Whatever else did Dr Drew give (or not give) his patients?
All for ratings!?
All for $money!?
fame?

"Not on TV"!
..........as Dr Drew attempted to draw an emotional response from a distraught 'celebrity' patient,
"Not on TV"!
..........as a 'celebrity' patient is prodded about his childhood trauma experience,
"Not on TV"!
..........as he looked back at Dr. Drew with a soft, tired smile. Finally he said,
“Not on TV."
Yes. Dr Drew Pinsky......
"Not on TV".

I saw some clips where Steven Adler is ragging on Amy Fischer on this year's Celebrity Rehab. Talk about the contradictions. He's ragging Amy Fischer basically for one act of violence as a teenager. They showed Steven Adler being hauled off to jail on a previous Celebrity Rehab for assault and possession as an adult.

Adler and other junkies have to realize all the crime and frequently blood it took to get them their 'product' or ILLEGAL drugs.
