August 13, 2012 in drug rehab
So many lives have been destroyed by an uncontrolled desire to take illegal drugs and alcoholic beverages. The reasons are multiple and varied but it all points out to a lack of support system. People turn to drugs as a means of an “emotional clutch”. And drug addiction and alcoholism affects everyone from all walks of life- the ordinary man on the street or someone who is adored and known all over the world .Just like the sad case of multi-talented Pete Doherty.
Best known for co-founding the band The Libertines and the Babyshambles- this English born is famous for being a musician, writer, poet and artist. He also dated Kate Moss for sometime but what kept him always in the limelight is his infamous on and off bouts with all kinds of illegal and prescription drugs. Born to a military father and a mother who is a nurse, the family has moved from one place to another. Maybe the nomadic life has some effect on Pete that made him turn to drugs particularly crack cocaine and heroine. Or maybe the addiction was brought by the environment that he moved in during his college days.
He managed however to function through his drugged existence and he became famous with co-founding bands with some of his friends and dorm mates in college. But the addiction always managed also to catch up with him. There were already lapses in work and gigs were cancelled. Lately, in a last minute effort to recover from this devastating habit, Pete and his manager decided to check him into a high end drug rehabilitation facility located in a remote Thailand forest. The Cabin, as it is called has prided itself of having a high percentage of success rate of their residents. The mode of treatment is traditional which includes petting an elephant. The place is conducive to battling the myriad effects of drug addiction. But the sad thing is, after a few days stay in the facility, the 33 year old singer from England was politely asked to leave the premises. The reason that was given is that Doherty has been causing undue disruption to the activities of the other residents in the facility. Even if Doherty has paid the stiff L7, 200/ month fee, they didn’t think twice of asking him to leave. The program director said they want to preserve their therapeutic management and they cannot tolerate the nasty behavior Doherty has been showing. So, even with a heavy heart they asked him to immediately leave to give the other residents a fighting chance at recovery.
Pete Doherty must realize before it is too late that no amount of persuasion from other people can make him submit to another drug rehabilitation program again. Even the best drug treatment facility in the world can offer no help if he himself is not ready for the detoxification. He must only learn to pause and think- does he want to be like his friend Amy Winehouse? Pete Doherty owes it to himself to shape up now or else—tomorrow may be a little too late!
