Mackenzie Phillips --

Student Becomes the Master

5/27/2009 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mackenzie Phillips"Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" -- the show that exploits celebrities who are battling addiction -- is now exploiting a celebrity who has already battled addiction.

We've learned Mackenzie Phillips -- who entered rehab for the 10th time in September 2008 -- will appear on the third season of the show as a "sober coach." Phillips was busted for cocaine in August 2008, but had the majority of the charges against her dropped -- and the final charge will be dropped when she completes a drug diversion program. By all indications, Mackenzie has done a complete 180 and says the arrest saved her life.

The role of "sober coach" on the show was previously played by Gary Busey -- and we know how that turned out.

And we know the other new cast of characters. Let's just say Mackenzie has her work cut out for her.

Sober 10 years    

These people are pathetic losers! Dr. Drew needs to get a life and start minding his Las Encinas clinic where people keep dying and getting hurt. Las Encinas is known for it's rate of relapse. Sobriety is about finding god and oneself quietly. These "celebrities" have caused a lot of young people to be addicted who are struggling to find a way to recovery through REAL role models. Being reminded of their destructive path by watching these train-wreck idiots make even bigger fools of themselves is disgusting! Dr. Drew is a greedy merchant of death and he needs to be stopped with this show.
