How Celebrities Are Disadvantaged At Drug Rehab Centers

May 25, 2008
Celebrities will commonly go back to drug rehab centers multiple times in their career- and this puts a bad reputation for the average recovering addict. But instead of letting this fact discouraging one's motivation, one should instead look at how rough celebrities actually have it, and how advantaged the average person might actually be over a recovering celebrity.

Drug usage is often illegal- meaning many citizens try to steer clear of using any addictive substance. But celebrities can enjoy a huge reduction in penalties that come from breaking the law, simply because of their status with the media and the leniency of the judicial system on celebrities. The penalties will be less intimidating, and thus, celebrities will be more inclined to exhibit drug usage as a result.

It is also true that celebrities can obtain drugs on a much easier level, without risk getting caught. It is much more probably that a celebrity will be caught with drugs than caught buying drugs, as they can afford extra measures in obtaining illegal drugs in incognito. If celebrities can get drugs so easily and without repercussions, a simple visit to the drug rehabilitation center isn't going to do much good.

In many cases, the expensive treatments celebrities obtain are what will doom them to fail. A drug rehabilitation center that acts more like a resort is going to be taken much less seriously than a drug rehab center that only functions to help its users stay clean. In many cases, it is like the celebrity is just on a vacation- and therefore there is a lack of focus.

There is also less commitment on the celebrity's part, as they have more money and can afford multiple visits to a drug rehabilitation center. The average person can't simply check into a drug rehabilitation center every time they feel it is necessary, yet a celebrity can. This lack of commitment will result in a much lower rate of success unless the celebrity is truly inspired to give up the addiction.

While a drug rehabilitation visit isn't something the normal person would want to broadcast to their community, it's as if celebrities rely on the publicity achieved from such events to obtain more sales or leads in their industry. Journalists, newspapers, and media outlets all bring massive attention to the fact that a celebrity has entered a drug rehab program- an thus, it's just like a celebrity has obtain instant stardom all over again, and the public eye will be on them as a result.

Final Thoughts

Every time a celebrity goes to a drug rehabilitation center, there is usually a lesser chance of long term success because of the aforementioned reasons. This should not discourage the average recovering addict, who is more focused and willing to become an addict free patient for a long period of time- indefinitely. This isn't to say that celebrities can't overcome an addiction, but their environment is working against them in the process of them obtaining the help they need.
