Charlie Sheen will not be going into a rehab facility; instead, he has put together his own team of experts to guide him through rehabilitation at home. It was earlier reported that he finally entered a rehab facility over the weekend after a 36-hour binge on drugs, alcohol and women which landed him in ER.
Mark Burg, who is also a producer on Charlie's show 'Two and a Half Men', said: Charlie has put together a team that he trusts to help get him sober once and for all. The show will work around Charlie's sobriety schedule. Everybody hopes his recovery is quick and new episodes are back on the air as soon as possible.
Charlie Sheen’s show was put on hold to accommodate his recovery. His plan to undergo rehab at home has not met with approval from either family or CBS bosses. Radaronline reports that, Charlie doesn't think he needs help, he is still up until all hours of the night and is refusing to get it at an outside facility, while those close to him - including his dad Martin, family, friends and his employers CBS - work to convince him he needs to enter a facility.
Despite reports that Charlie bought drugs worth nearly $22,000, the LA police has decided not to charge him with drug possession as no drugs were found at his home after the fire department arrived in response to a 911 call. Public evidence by people present at the party has been dismissed, as it is believed that the so-called attendees at the party were merely demanding money for stories.
‘We Are All Charlies’
Celebrity bends and binges are quite common for the world and hardly evoke any sympathy or comment but Mike Zimmerman’s article in Men’s Health magazine titled “ We are all Charlie Sheen” has left the Twitter world aflutter.
His words have found a kind of empathetic echo. His take that boys will be boys and every man/boy wants to live his life has found sympathy. Zimmerman feels that life is an addiction in some form or the other - either an addiction to stick to a righteous path or to give in to the good life - and no one has a right to stand in judgment.
No one denies that an addict suffers, but there are others who suffer alongside. Someone needs to speak up for them too.
