    he is but he also claims he is an addiction expert.

    i don't know that he did any kind of residency or fellowship in this area as i believe he is IM.

    He is an internist but he's a self proclaimed addiction medicine specalist. There are some Anesthesia MDs who specialize in pain management who wind up getting into some of the addiction issues. A lot of rehab type places do have internists like Mr. Drew. Well, they're nothing like him but they have a similar background.

    i think we are saying the same thing. he is IM but i don't think he did any formal training for addiction issues. i'm surprised that the medical board even lets him make such claims. *trots off to find out his licensing details*

    Damn, I liked him. Other than Brigitte Nielsen, are there any Dr. D success stories?

    The medical board doesn't really have a say in what your expertise is though. I mean, you can do a fellowship in a particular subspecality but you don't become an expert without experience. Alternatively, a lot of physicians gain a reputation for being an expert in a certain field because they are willing to take on tricky cases, and have success with them, without any specific training beyond their residencies. Gag, did I just get all technical. Sorry. Plus I just (sort of) defended this ass clown. Scrap what I said, he's a fraud and a money/fame grubbing douchebag.

    Dr. Drew's drug shocker!

    To millions of viewers who tune into VH1 reality series Celebrity Rehab and Sober House, David "Dr. Drew" Pinsky is one of Hollywood's most powerful weapons against drug and alcohol addiction. But now, in exclusive interviews with Life & Style, two former colleagues at KROQ -- the LA radio station that gave Drew, 51, his big break on the program Loveline -- have come forward to talk about the doc's past. They say Drew knows firsthand what it's like to fall under the spell of illegal drugs -- because he was once a frequent cocaine user himself.

    In 1982, Drew hadn't even finished medical school when he met KROQ DJ Jim Trenton at a party. "I asked him to do this segment with me called Ask a Surgeon," Trenton tells Life & Style. "Listeners could call in and get answers to their romance and medical questions." The segment was such a hit, it soon evolved into Loveline -- which remains on the air to this day.

    While they spent their days helping listeners with their love, sex and health-related problems, Drew and Jim spent many of their nights partying away. Often, Trenton says, that included cocaine use. "He used to say to me, 'Jim, I love cocaine,'" Trenton notes. "He'd say that a lot -- that he loved coke." In fact, Trenton adds, Drew "did coke with a lot of different people, including myself, on numerous occasions." Joanna Swylde, who worked as an intern at KROQ at the time and partied with Drew and Trenton, confirms Trenton's claims. She tells Life & Style they even used to snort lines of cocaine off album covers in the control room at work. "We would do it during the breaks on the show," Swylde recalls.

    Although Drew used coke, "I don't think he was addicted to it," Trenton tells Life & Style. "He used it recreationally.

    "I would say by the mid to late '80s, he had quit," Trenton says. "We all stopped doing it."

    Noooo. That truly makes me sad. I really liked him and was hoping he'd get himself together.

    No, it's not. There's a higher percentage of use in Anesthesia but that's likely because it's so easy to sneak.

    Wow... Bai Ling is showing signs of a psychotic break. Why wasn't transferring her to another a higher level of care their immediate reaction? And I really like Sean Young.. she seems very earnest and honest about the entire recovery process. I just can't take Dr. Drew seriously. I'm fascinated by what he does from a clinical standpoint but at the same time he's just cheapening very real problems, IMO.
