Philip Seymour Hoffman

Rehab Friends

Scared Straight

EXCLUSIVE

0209_philip_seymour_hoffman_getty2A group of friends who were in treatment with Philip Seymour Hoffman are vowing to stay sober FOR GOOD following his death ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with a woman in rehab with PSH -- we kept her name confidential for obvious reasons -- and she says a bunch of people in rehab and Narcotics Anonymous with Hoffman made a pact after he died to not only stay sober from now on for themselves ... but also for Philip.

We're told his death was a "pivotal moment in their recovery" ... because they realized no one is invincible ... even rich celebrities.

Hopefully they ask their doctor for suboxone, if PSH was on it he might still be alive.

It'd be a nice way to honor Phil.

Make his Passing have even more Meaning.

i.e. Raise our Game - and to Honor someone we loved.

So you are saying that someone who was in Therapy with this poor dead man, someone who share NA meetings would go to you and voluntarily told you all this information.
.
No NA person would have said a word unless they relapsed and needed drug money, which I would imagine you were more that happy to supply in return for some BS.
.
How many times will you put crap out there just for the sake of some sheckels?

You don't think they realized how dangerous and destructive the drug was before his death? Isn't that likely the reason they were in rehab in the first place? Why is this a story?

It's a difficult drug to stop 'Cold Turkey', just ask Keith Richards, Home Alone Boy, and so many other Rockers.

It's the Taliban Flooding the USA with Heroin.

if theres one stupid things about recovery, its basing it on this or that or making absolute definitive promises. Its a process and its usually forward and backwards. The most important thing is that its more forwards. All these promises and pacts just make you regret and angry at yourself when your break them.
