Michael Richards, Mel Gibson and Don Imus oh my... just to name a few. Celebrities have been drying out in rehab for years, but their reasons for seeking treatment are getting juicier and juicer by the second. No longer are treatment centers solely for drug and alcohol dependency, but rather racism, anger, and stress as well.
It seems like every time a public figure finds themselves in hot water, they blame their actions and remarks on some sort of dependency and run to rehab for shelter instead of being held accountable for their behavior. How do you all feel about this new phenomenon? Do you think celebrities are cowardly blaming their outbursts on abuse or do you feel they are in fact victims of addiction?
