Rihanna Might Head to Love Rehab

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Battleship Premiere - Rihanna

Might as well face it, you’re addicted to love!

OK, so some of my younger readers not get that reference (and if you don’t, here you go), but according to Grazia Daily, our beloved Rihanna might be addicted to love–specifically, Chris Brown’s love.

(If you’ll remember, Rihanna and Chris Brown began dating in 2006, but split up after Brown assaulted her after a pre-Grammy party in 2009. Since then, their on-again, off-again relationship has been a roller coaster of restraining orders, anger management, probation appearances, and tense media interviews.)

Reportedly, Rihanna is considering spending a six-week break from her current Diamonds World Tour getting some relationship and sexual recovery, or what the media are referring to as love therapy and love rehab.

Earlier this month, U.S. drug czar Gil Kerlikowske presented former Friends star Matthew Perry with the Champion of Recovery Award for “giving a voice to millions of Americans in recovery.”

How has the 43-year-old actor done that, you ask?

By being so vocal about his own addiction and recovery and supporting President Obama’s efforts to fight alcohol and drug abuse in America, to the White House’s way of thinking.

Specifically, his staunch support of America’s drug courts.


Twitter Chat: The Fix Tackles Drug Policy in America

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

The Fix, an excellent (in my opinion) website about addiction and recovery that often tackles celebrity substance abuse issues is teaming up with the national nonprofit addiction treatment organization Phoenix House later this afternoon to talk about something that’s been on all our mind’s since Colorado and Washington pretty much told the world, “Yeah, we do what we want” and legalized pot.

Drug policy. Specifically, legalizing drugs.

Not just marijuana, either. The Fix and Phoenix House are set to talk about everything from heroin and cocaine to mass incarceration and mandatory vs. optional addiction treatment.
