Dr. Drew Pinsky is officially checking out of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab" ... but VH1 wants to keep rehab alive, so it's developing another show without the good doc.
Sources connected to the show tell us ... the new show will not focus on celebrity addicts, but rather troubled celebrity couples looking to fix their relationship through a therapy program ... on national television.
We're told producers are noodling over names and one of the frontrunners is "Relationship Rehab."
As for VH1's Dr. Drew 2.0 -- the negotiations are under wraps.
