    Road to rehab

    Brighton Hospital offers addicts -- including Eminem -- sparse accommodations but healthy direction for regaining control over drugs and alcohol
    September 11, 2005

    The Brighton hospital Eminem chose for his recovery from a sleeping pill addiction is a bare-bones facility with a 6:30 a.m. wake-up call, a 10:30 p.m. bedtime and rules banning hip-hop music or movies that don't have a recovery theme.

    A white picket fence and old-fashioned chapel suggest a country club, but the nation's second-oldest private substance abuse facility, an hour's drive northwest of Detroit, is more boot camp than sumptuous retreat.

    Two-thirds of the staff are recovered addicts, including the medical director of its detoxification unit, a doctor whose medical license once was yanked over his addiction to booze and drugs.

    A third of the clientele are addicted to sleeping pills and other sedative medicines, making it a logical choice for the rapper born Marshall Mathers. Numerous sources close to Eminem say he admitted himself to Brighton Hospital for an addiction to the sleeping drug Ambien days after an Aug. 12 concert at Comerica Park in Detroit. Officials at Brighton and the St. John Health System, of which the hospital is a part, cited federal health privacy laws in declining to confirm whether Eminem was or remains a patient at the hospital.

    But Tuesday, hospital officials spent nearly three hours with a Detroit Free Press team answering questions and providing a limited campus tour.

    Their willingness to admit the newspaper team suggests Eminem is no longer there. Patients generally stay at the facility for 10 days, followed by as much as six months of outpatient therapy.
    "The people who follow up with a treatment plan are the ones who do well," said Dr. Mark Menestrini, medical director of the detox unit.

    Menestrini, 52, tells his own story of addiction, without shame, if for no other reason than to provide hope to all who will listen. After 12 arrests, four relapses and the near-collapse of his marriage, Menestrini regained his medical license and went on to pass national board certification exams as an addiction medicine specialist.

                      six months of outpatient therapy!!!

                      Worse part about this is it is $425 per session which over a six month period really adds up. Although it is not a problem for someone with as much money as Eminem. I hope this experience did for him what it did for me. Maybe he will start making tracks that talk about all the things an addict goes through the highs the lows the struggles and the gaining of a new kind of faith. Life just seems so much more important after an experience like that where every day you socialize and interact with people who actually have stayed off of substances for 10, 20, some even 40 years.

                          I doubt that but if he does than its okay it would make sense to me it is a very trying ordeal.

                            ''rules banning hip-hop music or movies that don't have a recovery theme''
                            So i guess he was allowed to play Ice-T's 'ya played ya self' and Ice Cubes 'Check yo self'

                            If he went in for an addiction that we dont know yet know about it the media will try to get thier paws on it, but obviosly Em's proably got his privacy well protected by the firm. But maybe one of the other patients or staff will secretly reveal to a newpaper or something like 'Eminem his days in rehab!'

                              ^ can't do it they make you sign all kinds of waivers that every single person in the facility has anoymity and if you do speak about it you are talking a major lawsuit. The facility wasn't allowed to tell my parents anything even after I signed a form saying they could it was too much of a liability.
