Dear Dr. Drew,
Let’s keep this message short and sweet.
I don’t see any real help going on in your previous TV Show, “Celebrity Rehab.” I mean, how could there be with all the camera’s and unequipped staff. They were there for more notoriety and exposure than they where to spread the message of recovery to some of the people that this world looks up to.
I will admit, some of my favorite episodes came when I was in early teenage years, but I also admit that I was in the midst of my addiction then as well. This did nothing but glorify the life I saw Steven Adler, the drummer from Guns N’ Roses, living. Or, how about this being aired on some highly qualified networks that teenagers watch, like myself, while showing, talking about, and trying to sort through porn addict’s issues at hand, as well. Some may find that inappropriate but I find it unspeakable to think that we’ve sunk to sexism on your shows as well… but then there is the Teen Mom series, too. “Sigh.”
What happened to confidentiality? Not exploitation of an illness.
Once you’d dirtied up the scene of what a true residential treatment facility should look like, you went and tore down the structuring of sober living homes as well, when these addicts’ whom need your help were exposed in their stigmatized, early days of recovery. Where’s the moral’s clause here Dr. Drew? It didn’t just show them in treatment, but it showed how they committed full blown relapse at sober living now, too! Not to mention I saw more of the drama filled times (if that’s what we want to call it) than truly what needs to be happening at a real-deal recovery center.
I didn’t see much of you or your staff, in fact, I think we saw the camera men more than you as well. This is a serious blow to the stigmatization addicts’ face on a day to day basis, but now it’s forever in the world of celebratized TV Land, along with some of our most famous fallen icons. I almost cried when I saw Steven and Jeff Conaway from Greese back in the center for more than one season. You didn’t explain to us what relapse was like and that it was and is a true thing. All that I knew is that I feared for my Sweet Child O’Mine’s life, Dr. Drew.
And after your TV Show, “Celebrity Rehab,” was eventually cut off the air, you went from “helping” people try to recover, such as celebrities, musicians, and plenty of porn stars, to actually creating porn stars. Your claim to fame is nothing more than a shame for personal gain in the lives of millions of people watching and those you claim you are helping. So let’s get down to it one last time…
Farrah Abraham was your 16 and pregnant [porn]star, and Leah and Janelle were your Celebrity Rehab reincarnates, at best. You were doing nothing but documenting these children at their most vulnerable times, especially their unborn children, too. Where does the morals clause come in here?
You bred a porn star out of Farrah Abraham when her addiction went from TV fame to not enough, needing the attention of someone other than her lost love on the TV show, she turned to another form of advertising… sex work. She wouldn’t have made over $1 million on her very first sex-tape and of been enticed to do it if you hadn’t of given her a platform to feed off of. Now she travels the country promoting skin shows rather than being what you set out to document: A young mother. Leaving her daughter behind, claiming it’s for the better.
Now, not to mention there has been numerous drug scandals with Janelle and Leah, and we can accustom that to an environment they are surrounded by. It’s hard enough being young parents or in young relationships, but to do it on a televised platform across the world, with staged interventions by someone claiming to be a doctor to help, rather being a doctor to stir the pot of drama. It would go to show that maybe they can’t cope with the stress in the first place, but adding your gasoline to the fire, it must be unbearable. Let’s not get into the numerous assault cases other show “stars” have been involved with, that you seem to only come in at the end of the series to recap it and cause what most addicts would say are “Triggers.”
So to you Dr. Drew I used to love your show when I was young and unaware of the harm of stigmas, yes I won’t deny that. But now I’m older and I know better. I’ve been through addiction and am in recovery. All I have to say is that through recapping your career, I’m one disgruntled addict and that my heart goes out to those that you’ve harmed in some way or another. But oh no, I won’t let you keep me down, and I hope that the others won’t too, because we cannot dwell on one person doing harm when there is so much good that does come from recovery. So I won’t live in your spout off misery and exploitation because I may be one disgruntled addict, but just for today, I know I’m better than the material you put out enforcing stigma.
