Celebs and Rehab

It seems that there has recently been a massive surge in the amount of celebrities checking themselves into rehab. We all know that drug addition, alcohol addiction and eating disorders plague the world of Hollywood, but how many of these stars actually manage to clean up their acts? In the past few years, the most notable names who have managed to beat their demons include Demi Lovato, Zac Efron and, most surprisingly, Lindsay Lohan.

Demi Lovato went to rehab for an eating disorder, as well as for help with her self-destructive tendencies. Since then, she has seemed to be living healthier and is always heard expressing words of support for her fans and for others suffering from eating disorders. Zac Efron also seems to have remained on the ‘straight and narrow’ and has been quoted saying “I'm in the best place I've ever been. I've never been this happy before... Things are good.”

As for Lindsay Lohan, who is infamous for her multiple visits to rehab, nobody knows how long she is going to stay clean. However, as of now, she seems to be doing quite well. We commend her for being determined to resurface from many years of addiction and despair.

In the last couple of weeks, music pop star, Kesha, has completed her treatment for an eating disorder and has made her first appearance on the red carpet looking fresh-faced and healthy. Before the event, she tweeted the following:

“Happy to be back! Feeling healthy & working on tons of new music. I can't thank my fans enough for all the love & support u have given me!”

Tori Spelling’s hubby, Dean McDermott also recently left rehab and is now ready to take on the world with a renewed zest for life.  

It’s wonderful to see so many celebs aiming to lead healthier, happier lifestyles. They are, after all, seen as role models by many youngsters out there! With so many celebrities needing professional help in order to get their lives back on track, one can’t help but wonder why addiction has always been such an epidemic in Hollywood. Hopefully, as time goes on, and as new stars are born, we can leave this dark side to stardom in the past!
