Blaming Dr Drew Pinsky for the death of Mindy McCready or any of the otherCelebrity Rehab patients who eventually overdosed is beyond ridiculous. Every one of his celebrity patients who died was a long term substance abuser and didn’t want to help themselves. Besides McCready’s suicide, actor Jeff Conaway, police brutality victim Rodney King, Real World participant Joey Kovar, and musician Mike Starr, have overdosed. It’s a sad fact that some addicts simply do not want to be “cured” and do not respond to any kind of help. Dr Drew doesn’t have a higher number of casualties than other addiction specialists- they‘re just more visible. Sadly, some people simply cannot be saved.
