Dr. Drew Pinsky serves as host and helps celebrity patients struggling to recover from drug and alcohol addiction on VH1's reality series, "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew." He also hosts "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" and "Sober House" and can be seen on MTV's "Teen Mom" and "16 & Pregnant."

Dr. Drew Pinsky is a highly respected practicing MD and assistant clinical professor at KECK USC School of 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, a board certified addictionologist and medical director of the chemical dependency unit at Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena, where he has been treating addicts for over 20 years. Although he is an associate professor of clinical psychiatry at the KECK USC School of Medicine, he is not a psychologist or psychiatrist. 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. Dr. Drew can also be heard during the day Monday thru Friday on the nationally syndicated radio show "Dr. Drew Live."

She would be a very famous writer, but I need your help now, to make sure she will get there. I am a single mother of a beautiful soul inside, and out daughter, that got in to the habit of smoking weed, and drinking alcohol. She was approched by Stanford University for her writing ability, and I need your help to get her to her potential, that could be huge. I am writing this, because I have no idea how else to say a few words to you with the very busy scheduale that you must have. She admires you, because I heard her talking about you. Hope to hear from you. Desparate mother that needs your help.
