Rehab Was Just the Beginning - 'Sober House with Dr. Drew' Shines a Spotlight on the Painstaking Task of Staying Sober

Tom Sizemore, Heidi Fleiss, Dennis Rodman, Jennifer Ketcham, Seth "Shifty" Binzer, Kendra Jade Rossi, Mike Starr and Kari Ann Peniche Check Into Season 2 of "Sober House with Dr. Drew"

Season Two Premieres on Thursday, March 11 at 10PM*

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25 -- Addicts enter rehab as an emergency measure geared at saving their lives. But what happens after the twenty-one days of intensive, in-patient treatment are complete? "Sober House with Dr. Drew" chronicles the all-important transitional period beyond the safety of rehab when the real work begins and patients initiate their move back into society. World-renowned addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky facilitates the continued path to healing for several of his most challenging patients in eight new episodes of "Sober House with Dr. Drew." The new season is set to premiere on Thursday, March 11 at 10pm*.

The cast of season 2 of "Sober House" combines patients from both "Celebrity Rehab 3" as well as "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" and includes: Tom Sizemore, Heidi Fleiss, Dennis Rodman, Jennifer Ketcham, Seth "Shifty" Binzer, Kendra Jade Rossi, Mike Starr and Kari Ann Peniche.

A sober living house is an interim step on the path to sobriety where addicts can live in a supervised and sober environment with structure and rules, i.e. mandatory curfews, chores and therapeutic meetings. In this show, celebrity addicts, most of whom have spent the better part of their lives in the throws of addiction, will learn how to essentially start their lives over from the ground up. In many cases, successfully maintaining sobriety requires patients to alter everything about their previous lives when they were actively addicted to alcohol and other drugs. This could include changing jobs, eliminating friends and even abandoning loved ones who are deemed toxic to their sobriety.

Dr. Drew and his staff will keep a watchful eye over all that goes on at the Sober House. Throughout the course of the experience, patients will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Drew in both one-on-one and group counseling sessions in an effort to understand and solidify their sobriety.

In the end, we will witness the real life struggles of these celebrity patients whose sobriety hangs by a thread as they experience the pressures of daily life outside of rehab. Dr. Drew and his team will strive to give the patients the tools they need to maintain sobriety when they leave the house and return to the public eye of their celebrity lives.

"Sober House with Dr. Drew" is executive produced by John Irwin and Damian Sullivan for Irwin Entertainment. Dr. Drew Pinsky and Howard Lapides are also executive producing. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, and Noah Pollack are executive producers for VH1.
