Dr. Drew has some tough talk for Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. The addiction specialist and host of the Dr. Drew show on HLN recently gave an exclusive interview about the drama-causing Jersey Shore star, who has entered rehab for prescription medication, calling him a "drug addict" and "severely addicted." And while The Sitch says his goal is to get well in time to film the upcoming sixth season of the hit MTV show, Dr. Drew said in no uncertain terms that he wouldn't recommend it: "I'm sure they're going to want him to get back to work in a month," he said to his Celebrity Rehab co-host Bob Forrest, Radar Online Managing Editor Jen Heger and Fix Executive Editor Anna David on the Wednesday evening broadcast of his show. "This guy should take a year off…I can't tell you how often I've treated a celebrity. We have them for 30 days...and I'm saying, 'Please, take a year off.' 'No, but I have a tour. I have a record—I have recording. I have—whatever.'" Later in the same segment, Pinsky said, "They make a lot of money for themselves and other people, and they don't want to lose their career[s]. I understand that, but they're going to lose their lives if they don't take care of [their] addiction[s]." The former Celebrity Rehab host made headlines earlier this month with claims that Angelina Jolie is suffering from the "stigmata of malnutrition." Sorrentino is currently in treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utah—the same place that Demi Moore checked into last month for both anorexia and her addiction to prescription meds.
