Celebrities Who Went to Rehab in 2012 - It wouldn’t be a typical year in Hollywood if dozens of “stars” weren’t shipped off to rehab, right?
Maybe that level of public exposure really does drive people to substance (and mental, physical, whatever) abuse. Or maybe you have to have a addictive personality to become famous. Or maybe it’s just a bunch of publicists pulling the strings, trying to cover up shamelessly bad behavior.
Whatever the reason for many celebrities, 2013 is a tabla rasa (blank slate in Latin). A whole new beginning to start fresh, keep it together and avoid the pitfalls that landed them in rehab in 2012.
Like the following celebrity folk:
Billie Joe Armstrong Meltdown
The lead singer of Green Day had a meltdown at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas in September and it ended… badly. After a bizarrely profane rant, Billie Joe was shipped off to rehab and it was revealed the singer has been struggling with substance abuse.

Bobby Brown has tangoed with substance abuse for decades– it’s no secret. His struggle rose to the surface again in March when he was arrested for a DUI. The singer was put away and hopefully trying to get his alcohol (and other) problems figured out.
Gerard Butler Surfing Accident
During the filming of surfing movie Chasing Mavericks, Scottish actor Gerard Butler had an accident bad enough to send him into physical rehab. He claims the experience shook him up fairly badly and definitely changed his attitude for the better.
Yes, these were just a few of the Celebrities Who Went to Rehab in 2012. Surely there will be a list for 2013 as well.
