The Celebrity Therapist

 Dr. Drew says it best when he states that the members of
Celebrity Rehab 4 will have to build upon the foundation they were given in
rehab in order to have a successful recovery. After 21 days in treatment the
end is here, but is it really an end? In truth this is just the beginning, a
thin layer has been removed from the outer shells of these addicts and their
true essence is just being seen. They are just beginning to see who they are
and who they have the potential to become. Although they are celebrities, their
toughest role is the one they now face. They must mature into their true selves
and this takes a great deal of energy and steadfast work and commitment to a
program of recovery.


Each celebrity was given an opportunity to say a few words
and this is the first glimpse at more discoveries each of them are going to
realize. Shelly had a message for Frankie that was extremely moving, she told
Frankie that where Frankie had come from, most people don’t make it back from
and for that Shelly was more forceful with Frankie about the dangers that can
trigger Frankie in the “real world”.  How
many individuals that watch the show are either in this late stage of addiction
or have a loved one that is? This shows how powerful Frankie’s presence on
Celebrity Rehab 4 was, her lifetime of addiction and the concrete walls that
she had formed around herself were able to be penetrated by a group of
individuals who honestly cared about her mental, emotional and physical health.


Margaret Mead once said “Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only
thing that ever has.” The community that was formed on Celebrity Rehab 4, by
Dr. Drew, a staff of committed professionals, has exemplified this profound
statement and the community formed by the addicts themselves.
