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.

I find it hard to believe that he is the first person his rehab friends know who has OD'd. A junkie doesn't stop being a junkie just because a a fellow junkie ODs. Each person will either find the strength within themselves to stop, or they won't. This is a matter of PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, and nothing less.
