Following five years of Celebrity Rehab the show is returning with a twist! This time, in an all new premise, the legendary Dr. Drew will check in with past patients in Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited.
Dr. Drew will also address life in the months and years following addiction recovery and discussing the struggles of sobriety, and in some cases the updates won’t feature happy endings. “While many patients on the series have been successful with recovery, viewers will see that in some instances, not even Dr Drew’s patients are immune to the perils of relapse.” No word on who is doing well and who unfortunately may have re-succumbed to addiction.
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Revisited premieres Wednesday, November 20th (8/9c) on Vh1.

This should make for an interesting season as Tom Sizemore and Heidi Fleiss used to date, and both had a very rocky relationship. In fact, Tom was sent to jail for physically assaulting Heidi. Another familiar face is that of Kari Ann Peniche, who also appeared on Sex Rehab. Mackenzie Phillips also recently made headlines when she admitted having an incestuous relationship with her father, Rock & Roll legend, John Phillips.
