Dr. Drew says Corey Haim turned down chance at 'Celebrity Rehab'

Posted on

Addiction specialist and reality TV host Dr. Drew Pinsky claims that Corey Haim lost a chance to save himself when he turned down an offer to appear on VH1’s Celebrity Rehab.

According to People.com, Pinksy says that Haim’s friends and associates told him for years that he needed help with his recovery, though he did not respond to Pinsky’s own offer to assist him.

Pinksy says that though Haim was no longer using as drastically as in the past, “he wasn’t embracing treatment in any real way,” and needed the formalized setting of a rehabilitation program to get him safely and fully committed to sobriety. EW has reached out to Celebrity Rehab‘s producers, but have yet to hear back.
