I have to disagree. Please, don't tell me your opinion is based off of Methadone and Mike's withdrawal episode ? And I'm not trying to start an unwanted argument.

I think he is in it more for the money than anything and NO it has nothing to do with Mike's withdrawal. Which anyway was WAAAAAAAAAAY TOO FAST.

Dr. Drew Pinsky leaves Las Encinas Hospital, which faces renewed scrutiny
March 6, 2010 | 11:25 am
Celebrity physician Dr. Drew Pinsky confirmed this week that he is leaving his post as co-medical director of Aurora Las Encinas Hospital's chemical dependency program.

Pinsky, who has led the chemical dependency unit at the hospital for at least 19 years, did not respond to questions about why he left, beyond confirming his departure to The Times through his agent.

Pinsky's departure comes as the high-end psychiatric hospital in Pasadena, where four patients died and one was raped in recent years, faces renewed scrutiny after inspectors learned of several recent escapes and near-suicides.

Las Encinas has been notified that it risks losing federal financial support after the latest incidents, one of which involved a woman known to be suicidal who was able to remove a battery from a TV remote-control device and swallow it. Several days after that, she broke a mirror and swallowed glass.

Another woman with a history of suicide attempts was discovered attempting to hang herself from a faucet with ties from the back of a hospital gown.

dr drew is a character, on a scripted reality show. the show basically just shows celebrities that are messed up on drugs, failing at getting clean.
there is no rehab program in the world that would involve TV cameras.
and i love the sober house. the tattoed guy with one hit wonder seth goes straight from the streets cracked out and skips detox and rehab to join cast members on the SEWT of sober house.
this is like saying is lauren conrad really working at a dumpy fashion place getting paid in 1 year what she makes in 1 episode of the hills.

Dr. Drew Pinsky is a REAL doctor...where in the world did you get that he was a character. He was the medical director of Las Encina's hospital for 19 years. Its real, the celebs agree to put their shit out there and sign agreements to be on the show.

I'm here EX-PPT sorry it took so long to check back in. Yes, of course I had read the article, also. I would never speak out on a subject that I did not know personally about or done my homework.As much as I admire Dr. Drew I would not want to walk in his shoes. Gee Whiz, Can you imagine ? Do not think we know honestly how long Mike's withdrawal was b/c of editing. Have you seen any of Dr. Drew's interviews on T.V. in the last week ? He answered some of your questions and mine as well. I prefer him answering for himself than putting all my trust in an article. As for Nurse Jackie, I think she is a hoot and some truth in her show.

No I didnt see the interviews, can you point me in that direction. No I wouldnt want to walk in his shoes and I would never put myself in a situation like that either. Fame (with his loveline and sex show) I think has now caught up with him and he is feeling the heat. Everything he does is under the microscope but money and getting his name on the map well looks like its pretty important to him. At what expense to others tho?

Nurse Jackie is really a hoot and to think, how many nurses are out there that can relate. I think its happening more than we all think....unfortunately (re: the addiction and screwing the pharmacist). Glad your here MS.

i know he is a real dr.
what i meant is thathe also plays the character dr. pinsky on a reality show. in my opinion that is not real life. it is a tv show that depicts what a rehab is like.
they are only there for what 7-10 days, then off to sober house.
i'm sure dr. pinsky is a good dr. and if you met him one on one in a hospital setting he would be ideal, just not infront of the cameras. it just seems that everyone is playing the part on the show.
like i said, i doubt any rehab in the world would have camera broadcasting to millions of people. and why does seth who is obviously deep into his addictions again, get to go skip detox/ rehab and go live in a sober house, right off the street.

also, dr drew used to be on a radio show where kids would call in and ask about different sexual questions and because they had a real dr, dr. pinsky there, they could get away with some funny stuff.

First of all they are in the rehab 28 days. Secondly Dr. Drew Pinsky is his real name and its his name on the show. He also has a radio show called loveline or used to and he also does therapy for SEX ADDICTS. All of this is REAL and has happened to ppl. His ways are old fashioned and he does not even consider replacement therapy altho he uses it in extreme cases but only Suboxone. He calls methadone the DEVIL Drug. He is a physician and he should be giving his patients all the options out there, not the ones he thinks are right and by not givning the patient this information or suggesting all treatment modalities is irresponsible and downright unethical.

I thought it was only 21 days? Are you sure? I felt SO BAD when watching Mike Star kick methadone! In the beginning of the show he told Shelly he was kicking 100mg's of methadone a day and at the graduation Dr.Drew was like "I know more than anybody what it is like to kick 130mg's of methadone a day cold turkey, that is just inhuman" Mike was dopesick THE ENITRE TIME in Rehab and now he is STILL SICK in the sober house!!! That CANT BE GOOD for somebodies sobriety if they are kicking for SO LONG!!! Everybody else went through the detox already, even Tom!!! It seems like it is ALOT HARDER for Mike because he is kicking WHILE at the sober house where he has access to drugs....... I really hope he gets better cause he seems like such a nice guy. He has just been on drugs for most of his life so he dosent know how to live life without them.

Dr. Drew Wants To Arrest Lindsay Lohan To Save Her From Herself
--by celebuzz on Apr. 09, 2010 5:15 PM.
Dr. Drew Pinsky has advice when it comes to dealing with Lindsay's many, many problems. The Celebrity Rehab addiction specialist told RadarOnline some of his rather interesting parenting ideas when it comes to dealing with Lindsay. From RadarOnline: "If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested. I would make sure she was not allowed to get out of jail. I would then go to the judge and make sure she was ordered to a minimum of a three year sobriety program." ....Ok, so you would frame your daughter for drug possession and then throw her in the clink? >This is shocking behavior from a physician. Dr. Drew has crossed the line. I would never trust a doctor who behaves in this way. Crass, unethical, and unprofessional. You should be ashamed of yourself, very tacky and intrusive. This is not the way to go about caring for someone.
Remember the Hippocratic Oath?
First, do no harm!
>I hope this story via Perez, Radar, et al, is a MISPRINT.

Finally someone who knows how unethical this asshole is..When he talked to Mike about methadone he said and I qoate Methadone "takes your soul" Well I wrote Pinsky and E mail. although I doubt he ever saw it and I told hime "Methadone gave me my sould back" He has done so many things this season that have been unethical boardering on illegal..First off, he takes Mike off of a 130mg dose of methadone making him quit cold turkey, no wonder the poor guy is angry, he has barely even started true WD's yet because PAWS is right around the corner..He looks to me like Drew has medicated him on a thorizine type drug because his look is blank, and the only emotions he even has is sadness or rage. Then Tom jumping on him for saying "No one is still dope sick after 47 days" well evidently Tom has never had to kick methadone. Drew also took Kari Ann off of her ADD medication saying that is what is making her use..BS..It is a known fact that many addicts who are ADD stop using once they are diagnoised and properly medicated for their ADD..I am sorry for those of you that think this jerk walks on water, but I hope he gets sued and loses his right to practice medicine. Notice I used the word practice? IMHO he is hurting more people than he is helping, and Jennifer, what a snake..Let see who she shares a bed with this season (remember her and Andy Dick last season) I don't even know why I watch this crap it makes me so angry

Right on..This is just what I have read so I don't know how true it is, but supposidly each patient gets 200K for doing rehab and 200K for sober house..If they paid me 200K, I still wouldn't kick a 130mg methadone dose cold turkey, I would die first..He is putting peoples lives in danger..Hedid Fliess needs me to kick her sorry ass for her passive aggresive shit she is doing to Tom..It is NEVER OK TO HIT A WOMAN, but cut it loose, if a person can't forgive others they will never forgive themselves. My ex used me as a punching bag, but I accepted his ammends and even though I will never forget it, I have forgiven him..I can see how Hedi eggs someone on to see how far she can go, well she went too far..I have no smypathy for her at all. I think she is a manipulative snake in the grass.
