Sick Celebrities


Janice Dickinson violently ill during rehab


Former supermodel Janice Dickinson is one of many celebrities currently enrolled in TV’s ‘Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew’ trying to overcome an addiction. Janice joined the star-studded (C-list) cast in order to seek treatment for her alcohol addiction, reports, and fell violently ill during the detox phase of her treatment, while trying to come off multiple substances.

A source close to Janice, 55, knows what she went through.

“Janice got extremely ill at the beginning of filming as she was going through a very intense detox,” the source told “Janice worried Dr. Drew and the staff at the Pasadena Recovery Center because of how violently sick she was. Janice got through it, and absolutely made tremendous strides.”

Since then she has graduated from the treatment program with Dr. Drew alongside her co-stars. While many of her colleagues will continue therapy and treatment to overcome their addictions in another facility, Janice will not be.

“Janice isn’t continuing treatment in another facility as several other cast members are,” the source added to “However, Janice is following the outpatient care plan that was given to her by Dr. Drew and staff members. Janice is actually asking for more help, going above and beyond what was recommended she do.”

Other celebrities involved in ‘Celebrity Rehab 4’ include Jeremy London, Eric Roberts, Leif Garrett and Rachel Uchitel, with whom Janice does not get along at all.

“There was no love between Rachel and Janice,” the source said. “Janice thought Rachel was using the show to further her 15 minutes of fleeting fame.”

Other celebrities who have battled addictions include Johnny CashDrew BarrymoreCharlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Mickey Rourke, to name only a few.
