Addicts enter rehab as an emergency measure geared at saving their lives. But what happens after the twenty-one days of intensive, in-patient treatment are complete? “Sober House with Dr. Drew” chronicles the all-important transitional period beyond the safety of rehab when the real work begins and patients initiate their move back into society. World-renowned addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky facilitates the continued path to healing for several of his most challenging patients in eight new episodes of “Sober House with Dr. Drew.” The new season is set to premiere on Thursday, March 11 at 10pm*.
Dr. Drew and his staff will keep a watchful eye over all that goes on at the Sober House. Throughout the course of the experience, patients will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Drew in both one-on-one and group counseling sessions in an effort to understand and solidify their sobriety.
In the end, we will witness the real life struggles of these celebrity patients whose sobriety hangs by a thread as they experience the pressures of daily life outside of rehab. Dr. Drew and his team will strive to give the patients the tools they need to maintain sobriety when they leave the house and return to the public eye of their celebrity lives.

Addictions are nothing new, and most people are aware of those involving alcohol, drugs, and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, but few know about and understand sex addiction. It afflicts roughly 3%-6% of the American population, and just like other addictions, its impact on personal lives can be devastating. The affliction can wreak havoc on the mental and physical health of those afflicted as well as destroy marriages, families, careers and even finances.
