Many celebrities are known for their over-the-top behavior and crazy antics, whether they’re acting silly in an interview, wearing extremely provocative clothes, or tweeting cryptic messages. This craziness is one of the reasons why people love celebrities and follow their lives on TV and social media.

This removal from daily life can have a positive effect on maintaining sobriety while there, as there is simply no access to the drug of choice. The therapy sessions are frequent and intense.

Get clean and stay clean! This is the message that people receive when going through treatment at most rehabilitation facilities. While this is a good message and it is the basis of rehabilitation, it’s important not to stop the treatment there. There are so many issues at the root of addiction that you cannot simply treat the addiction and walk away.
It’s always surprising to hear when someone seeks help for substance abuse, especially when the outer celeb in them just never seems as if they were the “type” to do anything to require rehab. We’ve all seen celebs like Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Robert Downey Jr. and Bobby Brown in and out of rehab and/or jail at one point or another in their lifetime. However, it’s shocking to hear a multitude of Disney stars being added to that list.
