Celebrity Rehab: Dr. Drew Pinsky Says Miley Cyrus is “In Trouble”

December 15, 2010 07:00 AM by Shayla Perry


Dr. Drew Pinsky of VH1′s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew may be busy treating the celebs on his show, but what does he think of teen actress/singer Miley Cyrus’ recent salvia scandal? Keep reading to find out.

“We know that she’s going to be acting out now because her family’s in trouble, so it’s not unusual to see depression manifesting as various kinds of acting out behaviors,” Dr. Drew Pinsky told Access Hollywood. “Adolescents don’t get depressed the way adults do. They don’t get sad and cry and withdraw. They often act out and become irritable, they act out with drugs and…get in trouble and she seems to be suffering.”

According to Dr. Drew, salvia, though legal in many states, is a very potent drug with serious side effects.

“It’s a very powerful hallucinogen. It grows along the freeways here in Southern California. They make a powder out of it, they smoke it, they make tea out of it,” Dr. Drew explained. “The smoking causes a very intense hallucinatory high. It lasts just a few minutes and they’re very bizarre many times, too.

“If I had a child that was doing that or if I was advising a parent, I would say get professional help immediately,” said the addiction specialist. “This cat is out of the bag. This is a child who is in trouble and who is suffering and this is her way of trying to manage that. Get professional help.”

After seeing the video himself, Miley Cyrus’ father, Billy Ray Cyrus tweeted, “Sorry guys. I had no idea. Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. I’m so sad. There is much beyond my control right now.”

A rep for Miley Cyrus had no comment about the video when contacted by Access Hollywood.

Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew airs Wednesdays at 10|9c on VH1.
