Addiction, hits anyone, tough stuff, needs treatment, there is hope, alot of work, get to the root causes, treat the root causes not the symptoms, anyone can get over it if they are wiling to go to any lengths.

Nicey-nicey, feely good, rock therapy, massages, all nice but doesn't get the job done, all addicts must get treated with tough love not tender loving kindness like Paris and others that go through that revolving door because they are not serious about recovery.

Wake up America we're dealing with life and death here and not always the addicts life and death, innnocent bystanders get killed also.

Good for you, Richie. A break from it all is good medicine. Since it seems that your music is somewhat on the spiritual side, I don't get the drama the women in your life bring you, really I don't. You need a better match.

The unknown isn't so bad. You'll find you're in total control and the world is still at your feet.

I'm still convulsing from the horrible sound and image    

Give the guy props for getting help. And for those of you calling him a "has been", well, he STILL is making millions touring and selling albums. Just what have YOU done lately???The negative comments never cease to amaze me. Good Lord...are your lives THAT empty that you need to rant about people you don't even know? Have some freakin' compassion and get your own damn life - oh - sorry...it's probably not interesting enough for people to talk about. Your kind never is.

Unreal.

Like another reader commented, I suspect Denise Richards got this poor guy addicted to drugs as she is.

Speaking of not doing time to fit the crime, WHAT ABOUT DRUG USING OLD LADY ASSAULTING DENISE RICHARDS? She nearly killed two elderly women in their 80's when she threw her laptop out of the windown (a SECOND STORY WINDOW MIND YOU) and unto the women sitting below the window, severely injuring them. Heck, laptops are heavy. I WOULDN"T want to to sitting under the window of a coked up witch throwing one down on my head. Especially when I hit my 80's!!!!!!!! Why didn't Denise go to jail for that?!

And for those of you judging Richie for moving on after Heather, SHE threw him out of the house, remember. I still think he did a way foolish thing by taking up with lying drug addict Denise,but he was very sad and lonely. He never wanted to leave Heather and Ava, never! I feel for the guy and I would like to see him happy again.
