This past Thursday, Tawny appeared in the first episode of Celebrity Rehab, Season 2.
Tawny sort of comes into this show implying that she is sober. Dr. Drew says that she is in denial.
“It’s very common. People call themselves sober and they’re still smoking pot or taking sleeping pills or anti-anxiety medication and their disease is alive and well.” -Dr. Drew, in reference to Tawny
The good doctor then went on to state that part of the problem is that pharmaceutical meds are not stigmatizd in the same way that illegal street-drugs are.
“Bottom line is that addicts will take any opportunity. That’s how the disease works.”
