LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2011 -- VH1 has once again partnered with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a fifth season of the hit reality series "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew." Similar to the first four cycles, the fifth season will follow the real-life experiences of celebrity patients undergoing detoxification and treatment at The Pasadena Recovery Center. This season will follow Michael Lohan (Celebrity Dad), Sean Young ("Blade Runner"), Dwight 'Doc' Gooden (baseball star), Amy Fisher ("Long Island Lolita"), Steven Adler (Guns 'n Roses), Bai Ling ("The Crow"), Jessica 'Sugar' Kiper (Survivor), and Jeremy Jackson ("Baywatch") on their quest for sobriety. "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" is set to premiere Sunday, June 26th at 9PM on VH1.

In the 5th installment of the Celebrity Rehab franchise, Dr. Drew takes viewers behind the closed doors of rehab and inside the often misunderstood treatment process. From heartbreak to hope we follow Dr. Drew and his patients on their difficult and deeply emotional journey to sobriety. An often raw and unflinching look at the many faces of addiction, Dr. Drew shows us that rehab is not a glamorous spa vacation for celebrities as portrayed in the media but a profound life changing process that offers hope for a better life.

Dr. Drew is the host of the nationally syndicated late night radio show Loveline as well as a respected practicing MD, board certified in internal and addiction medicine, who is staff at Huntington Hospital and assistant clinical professor of KECK USC School of Medicine. He is the author of the New York Times best seller The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America (Harper Collins) and Cracked: Putting Broken Lives Together Again (Harper-Collins.) Dr. Drew co-authored the first academic study on celebrities and narcissism that 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 hosted VH1's "Sober House" and "Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew" and can be seen on MTV's "Teen Mom" and "16 & Pregnant." Additionally, Dr. Drew is hosting a new prime time show on HLN called "Dr. Drew" and will also be hosting a daytime syndicated talk show "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers" on the CW Network coming fall 2011.

Also returning for their fifth seasons to assist Dr. Drew are Counselor Bob Forrest and resident technician Shelly Sprague. Joining the cast this season is Dr. John R. Sharp, M.D. Dr. Sharp is a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School, and the David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles. His expertise is in the integrated treatment of depression and bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, and addiction. Dr. Sharp has been recognized as Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and of The Academy of Psychosomatic. He maintains an active private practice in Boston and Los Angeles. Also joining the cast this season is Jennifer Gimenez as a resident technician. Jennifer was previously seen on "Sober House" as the house manager.
