LOS ANGELES, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As one of the most buzzed about seasons of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" draws to an end Dr Drew, Bob and Shelly have a lot of trepidation about the cast as they ready themselves to leave the safe confines of the rehab facility and reenter a world full of the temptations that brought them there. The end of in-patient treatment is just the beginning of their long roads to continued sobriety. Season five of "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" winds down as the finale airs Sunday, August 21st at 9pm*.
If you've been wondering how all of the 'celebrity rehabbers' from past seasons have been doing with their sobriety, VH1 will air "Celebrity Rehab Revisited" – five, one-hour retrospectives of the series.

These specials will include visits with former patients to see where they are now in their fight for sobriety. We will see some patients achieving incredible success and living fulfilling lives, and others continuing their struggle to maintain sobriety outside the safety of rehab.
