VH1's Hit Reality Series "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" Checks in for a Fourth Season

Season Four Cast Includes Eric Roberts, Jeremy London, Rachel Uchitel, Janice Dickinson, Leif Garrett, Frankie Lons, Jason Wahler and Jason Davis

"Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" Season 4 Premieres Wednesday, December 1 at 10PM*

Catch a Sneak Peek of the Premiere Episode on VH1.com Beginning Friday, November 26

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19, 2010 -- Dr. Drew's hit VH1 reality series "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" checks back into rehab for a fourth season. The series, consisting of nine one-hour episodes, is slated to premiere December 1 at 10PM*.

Season four of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" will follow the real-life experiences of eight diverse celebrity patients undergoing an intensive 21-day detoxification and treatment program at the Pasadena Recovery Center. As they each struggle with their own demons in their quest to get well they must also do this amongst some other very strong personalities who create more hurdles for each other than a helping hand. The cast, many who have been recent tabloid fodder even while they were in rehab includes: Eric Roberts (The Expendables), Jeremy London ("Party of Five," "7th Heaven"), Rachel Uchitel (Infamous Party Planner), Janice Dickinson ("The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency"), Leif Garrett (Musician), Frankie Lons (Keyshia Cole's Mother), Jason Wahler ("The Hills") and Jason Davis (Socialite).

Returning to the show to help Dr. Drew are drug counselor Bob Forrest and resident technician Shelly Sprague who have each spent years on both sides of the rehab fence. Dr. Drew is also bringing in some additional prominent physicians to help him give the patients supplementary one-on-one care.

Dr. Drew is a highly respected practicing MD, board certified in internal and addiction medicine who will once again give viewers an unflinching look at exactly how the rehab process works and what it feels like for participants. Dr. Drew hopes to use his celebrity patients to humanize the process and show viewers that treatment is a viable way to break the cycle of addiction.

While most people know Dr. Drew as the host of the syndicated radio show Loveline and the MTV show of the same name, Dr. Drew is a medical doctor on staff at Huntington Hospital and assistant clinical professor of KECK USC School of Medicine. His book, Cracked: Putting Broken Lives Together Again (Harper-Collins,) is all about what treating addicts is like from a caretaker's perspective. Dr. Drew co-authored the first academic study on celebrities and narcissism. The study was published in the Journal of Research in Personality (Elsevier) in September 2006, and is the first systematic, empirical scholarly study of celebrity personality. Additionally, he is a New York Times best selling author with his work The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America (Harper Collins). Dr. Drew can also be seen as host of VH1's "Sober House" and "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" along with MTV's "Teen Mom" and "16 & Pregnant, Life After Labor."

Viewers can catch a sneak peek of the season's first episode on VH1.com on Friday, November 26. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com the morning after they air. Additional video content from "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" including show extras and highlight clips from each episode will be available on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile throughout the season.

"Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" is executive produced by John Irwin and Damian Sullivan for Irwin Entertainment. Dr. Drew Pinsky, Howard Lapides and Joel Rodgers are also executive producing. Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, and Noah Pollack are executive producers for VH1.
