Jesse James in Arizona Rehab

3/31/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A member of the medical team at a Tucson rehab facility tells TMZ Jesse James is a patient there.


The facility -- Sierra Tucson -- specializes in drug, alcohol and sex addiction, as well as other disorders. TMZ broke the story last night.

Multiple law enforcement sources have told TMZ when a CHP officer stopped Jesse last Friday on the 10 Freeway near Blythe, CA. -- for driving without a front license plate and driving with tinted windows -- James told the officer he was going to Arizona to try to save his marriage to Sandra Bullock.

We have now learned from our law enforcement sources that James was specific -- that he was going to a rehab facility in Tucson.

A TMZ producer called Sierra Tucson and spoke with a therapist, who told us Jesse was at the facility and in fact had a 6 PM treatment Tuesday night.

Jesse's rep acknowledged he's in rehab.

They only go to rehab when the scandal damages their public moneymaking image because they want to convince people they have an illness, so when they get out of rehab they can say they received treatment for their problem and hope people forgive them and continue to earn money.


Jesse James knows that the supportive fans are not going to bring in the same amount of money as before.

I seriously doubt whether it was a therapist who gave out that information to a TMZ producer, it was probably some low-level admissions clerk who deserves to get fired for such a whopping breach of patient confidentiality.

Sex addiction is notoriously difficult to treat and relapse rates are very high. It is a compulsion that is very difficult to keep control of. I used to work with a guy who was a sex and porno addict and it really impacts negatively on their life. He could not go a day without viewing hardcore porn and he constantly trawled bars after work looking for pick-ups. The compulsion to have sex/view sex/masturbate was totally overpowering for him. An awful way to live, just horrible.

Personally I'm getting pretty fed up with hearing about "sex addiction." What a load of crap! A few years ago it was simply known as "needing attention 24 hours a day." The only problem these people have is with their over-inflated egos.

"sex addiction disorder"

Now that is some funny poo-poo.
Every man has this disability.
So every man gets government benifits.
And now the human race will become extinct.

What a crock.
This is about like the saying "alcoholism is a disease"

I think the "sex addiction disorder" disease is contagious.
Because every man has it, and some womem.

I hope alcoholism does not become contagious.

When did simply saying "I am wrong and I'm sorry" become replaced by checking into rehab?

Jesse has always seemed to me to be a regular guy. I hope he can save his marriage but if I were him I wouldn't count on it.

Please. Give me a frickin break. All these guys running to rehab for sex addiction? Sounds like the latest Hollywood thing. I just hope JJ hasn't passed on anything to Sandra that she may not be able to get rid of. What a disgrace. Sandra, hang in there. He's not worth it and you will be ok. You have a great support system in your fans and (it sounds like) your friends as well. Go forward and be happy.

has it been confirmed as to what type of addiction, he's a recovering addict/alcoholic, perhaps thats where the problem started. i can't imagine him cheating w/o the benefits of drugs and alcohol, maybe all 3! the best thing i heard throughout all of this was dennis rodman offering to console sandra. (remember during the celebrity apprentice when jesse gave him a speech on nat'l tv), about his drinking, something like, "kids look up to you man, don't blow it!", i see how sad they look when they look at you!....SUCK ON THAT WHITE STAIN!
