In the early hours of Wednesday, Bobby Brown found himself on the wrong side of the law– again.
The 43-year-old was pulled over just before 1 a.m. near the intersection of Ventura Boulevard and Corbin Avenue in Tarzana and “when they approached him, they smelled the alcohol,” L.A. Now reported.
Brown was booked and released, LAPD Officer Venus Hall said. L.A. County Sheriff’s Department records show bail set at $25,000, with Brown leaving before 8 a.m.
It was his second arrest of the same nature this year, and it comes after he checked into rehab In early August as part of his plea deal for the first DUI bust.
Dr. Damon Raskin, of Cliffside Malibu, tells Celebzter that he feels Brown still hasn’t conquered his demons and needs to seeks additional help.
“Clearly Bobby Brown hasn’t really dealt with his alcohol issues and would be a good candidate for long-term residential treatment center,” Dr. Damon Raskin, who does not treat Brown, says. ”He also might be a good candidate to be on medication that could help prevent another relapse. For example, there is Naltrexone shots that the patient takes once a month that help prevent cravings and relapsing.”
He adds: “Relapsing happens all the time with all kinds of people, it’s not just because Bobby Brown a celebrity but being in the spotlight makes a person more at risk for a relapse.
“There also might be some underlying psychiatric issues that caused him relapse, you have to remember that he has pressures of being in spotlight, of maintaining a certain lifestyle and there is the recent death of ex-wife, Whitney Houston, and the possible relationship issues he has with his daughter and the Houston family. This can all push a user or an alcoholic to return to that troublesome lifestyle”
There has been much speculation that Amanda Bynes was set to check into rehab after increasing pressure, but the actress is remaining defiant, despite her various incidents of late, that she is ok.
In fact, she told PEOPLE that she is doing “amazing.” .
“I am retired as an actor,” she went on to say. “I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line, I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don’t drink, and I don’t drink and drive. It is all false.”
But is Bynes in denial? And should she be seeking some professional help?
Dr. Damon Raskin, addiction expert at drug and alcohol rehab facility, Cliffside Malibu, says Bynes appears to need treatment of some sort.
“It’s very hard to see whether this is a primary psychiatric disorder, like a manic episode, or whether this is a drug or alcohol fueled state,” he says. “Both could be possible, or it could be a combination. One thing that is clear, is that she appears to need to seek medical attention to help get to the diagnosis, and get the proper treatment she needs. She is clearly unsafe to drive or be out in public.”
Their fondness for illegal substances such a crack cocaine and heroin was widely known. Their full-blown addiction, however, not so much. Only those in Eva and Hans Kristian Rausing’s privilege world, knew to some extent. But not the full extent.
After being arrested for driving erratically in London last week, her husband, estimated to be worth a staggering $10 billion as heir to the Tetra Pak fortune, was found with drugs on him, and subsequently arrested.
A search by UK police in his 5-story mansion discovered something they weren’t looking for: The body of his wife.
Reports have varied since the discovery, but now the latest news suggests Eva could have been dead in one of the two squalor rooms they occupied for a MONTH. The mother-of-four was only 48.
Rausing and his wife have previously donated large sums of money to anti-drug charities, including the Mentor Foundation, which is an international program that steers youth away from drug use and abuse.
But in the end, all the money in the world or the charities they helped ultimately could not stave off their own demons.
We spoke to addiction expert, Richard Taite, President and CEO of Cliffside Malibu, to get his opinion, and he provides an enlightening, if not incredibly troubling insight into just how deep in the trenches the couple were with their drug addiction.
Celebzter: This week, American heiress Eva Rausing was found dead in her 70 million pound home in London, she was said to be dead for a week, and her husband was found driving erratically and with drugs in his possession…
Firstly, do you think he was high on drugs to deal with the grief of losing his wife?
Richard: While I cannot speculate that he was high at the time, grief does give a good excuse for a drug addict to continue on their downward spiral. Having said that however, I have serious questions as to whether or not he even knew of the passing of his wife.
Celebzter: What is the thought process behind someone living with their dead wife for days upon days?
Richard: Here is my thought on this matter and it’s only speculation (and it’s speculation based upon years of personal experience). I think it is not only possible but probable that this gentleman didn’t even know his wife passed. First of all, let’s say she had been gone 2-3-4 days. In “crack time”, that’s 2-3-4 hours. When you are smoking crack, time goes by at the blink of an eye, that’s why I refer to it as “crack time”. When you are smoking crack for as long as these people allegedly had been you don’t have a sense of smell, and again that comes from personal experience. So a body that might be decomposing at the time would not have even been noticed by the husband. Lastly, it is common that people partying together for a long time runs its course and the continued usage is done in mutual isolation, no longer together. So, if these two have been partying in separate parts of the home, it is highly likely that someone gone for 2-3-4-5 days, could have gone unnoticed by the other.
Now, in the alternative, to answer the question directly, if he had gone into the room where his wife was after a few days and noticed she had deceased, it is possible that he would have been so grief-stricken that instead of calling someone in his immediate support system for help, he would have continued to get high as an avoidance mechanism to deal with the grief. I did hear one interview however, that some retired FBI agent made the silly statement that if this gentleman didn’t kill his wife, why would he have waited days? He basically said: what other explanation is there that he didn’t kill his wife, that he waited 2 or more days with a decomposing body in the house? Out of the 3 scenarios: 1) he didn’t know, 2) he found out after the fact, and 3) he had a part in his wife’s murder (which is by far the least likely that he had a hand in his wife’s murder).
Celebzter: The couple had long fought addiction problems and been to rehab unsuccessfully, do you think because they were so fabulously wealthy, it was easier for them to exist in a drug-fueled world since they didn’t have to get up and work every day or worry about making a living?
Richard: It’s always easier to do drugs when life’s responsibilities don’t get in the way. Every crack head’s dream is to have absolutely no responsibility whatsoever other than getting high. With these folks, the money isn’t going to run out, so as you can see, even when the money doesn’t run out, crack smoking comes with side effects.
Celebzter: The pair lived in mansion, yet in the end, were confined to two rooms which were described as a squalor….does this show for one, that they were unable to live a normal day-to-day life, and secondly, does it highlight the depths of their drug addiction?
Richard: First of all, it is definitely part of the drug addict psyche to make your environment as small and compact as possible, and that has to do with a comfort level in part. You also increasingly get more paranoid. So it’s more comfortable to stay in a small place. Their house is stated to be worth 70 million pounds, which is about 100 million dollars US and around 5 stories. This is a huge house, probably 10,000 square feet or larger, so it’s not at all unreasonable that these people were on separate sides of the house.
Secondly, what most people do when they smoke crack is they tweak on their surroundings. In lay person terms, they literally destroy the areas they are smoking crack in. It is not at all uncommon having a foot of garbage covering the room while you are smoking.
Celebzter: Why is drug abuse so rampant amongst the rich?
Richard: If you think drug abuse is so rampant amongst the rich, I invite you to go to the poorer neighborhoods of this country. I would argue that it’s much more rampant there. Drug addiction is a problem everywhere. It’s just sexier to talk about the rich being drug addicted.
Celebzter: Do they think that by having money, they are invincible, when in reality, they are no different from the poor who are addicted?
Richard: People who have money in general feel more invincible, and they can also get a better class of drugs.
Celebzter: And do you think that boredom is a factor in their drug abuse?
Richard: Let’s get this straight: EVERYTHING next to smoking crack is boring.
Celebzter: Eva penned this email to her husband’s father but never sent it…
“If nothing changes I will die, Hans. I just felt that I did not want to die without trying everything that I possibly could to reach you and to ask you to please help me. Your son feels very, very hopeless. Although I stick close to him, I am losing my grip because I am weakening.”
And she also recently spent time in rehab and went back to Britain to get her husband….by the sound of things, his addiction was worse and she feared leaving him because she feared he would die of an overdose.
The question is when you put two addicts into the mix, does it just exacerbate an already dangerous situation?
Richard: When two people are using together they always feel like the other one has the bigger problem. In this case it appears after all that she had the bigger problem.
Celebzter:Another sad story that emerged over the weekend was the death of Sylvester Stallone’s son Sage was found dead– he was just 36. It is understood he died of a prescription pill overdose and was dead for a week before he was found….his friends are surprised because he is understood to not dabble in drugs….what would make him. There was no suicide note found, do you think this is the classic case of someone accidentally taking too much medication?
Richard: I am heartbroken for his parents and the rest of his immediate family and friends. I do not believe it’s appropriate to speculate about what happened at this point in time. The truth is, all we know about this is one officer, or someone with the coroner, was talking about something he knows absolutely nothing about. The statements this person made was to the effect of: “Yeah there were prescription drugs there, but I’m not going to get into it. Maybe it was Viagra and Lipitor.

Yesterday, we wrote in detail about Bobby Brown’s first interview since the death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston.
The interview aired this morning on ‘Today’, with Bobby telling Matt Lauer that he wasn’t to blame for the singer’s early demise, and that he didn’t get her hooked on drugs.
When Matt asked him if Whitney was the victim and if he was behind her drug use, Bobby said: ”No, that’s not true. I didn’t get high before I met Whitney. No, I– I — I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.”
And he added that Whitney was dabbling in illegal substances “way, way before,” they got together.
We spoke to Richard Taite, President and CEO of Cliffside Malibu, to get his perspective on Bobby’s claims, and why, after several trips to rehab, Whitney still continued to dabble in illegal drugs.
Here’s out interview with him…
Celebzter:Bobby says he wasn’t to blame for Whitney’s drug problems, and he only took drugs once he got together with her. Is this atypical for someone in a relationship to start using if their partner is?
Richard: It is actually common for someone in a relationship to start using if the other person does, and frankly I remember while watching all the interviews of her inner circle immediately after her passing, her family actually inferred the same thing: that she didn’t start using drugs when she got together with Bobby; that she was already dabbling in cocaine prior to meeting him.
Celebzter: And does it escalate both of their habits because they are both doing it?
Richard: Yes, their habits can escalate. Any time you have a connection with someone and you become dependent together, it has the potential to dramatically increase their usage because they are not hiding it from one another, they are using together. If you include the sexual component on top of it, which was most certainly there, that’s going to escalate the usage as well.
Celebzter: There must be very little chance of getting sober if you have a partner who is not?
Richard: If you have a partner who is using and you are trying to stay sober and if you don’t have the tools to stay sober then yes, you are going to ultimately lose that struggle. But if you have two people who end up in treatment together and they are both working to stay sober it can actually be a supportive environment. However, if both get treatment and one person relapses they endanger the other person.
Celebzter: What do you recommend in this situation?
Richard: When both people in a relationship are abusing drugs or alcohol, then both have to seek treatment concurrently, and don’t leave until their treatment complete.
Celebzter: In terms of addiction, Whitney checked in rehab several times, but she never managed to stay clean. Is these circumstances, is it because the person just doesn’t want to beat their addiction or is it a failure on the part of them not taking rehab seriously? Or perhaps the rehab wasn’t intensive enough?
Richard: I don’t know where Whitney sought rehab, so I don’t know whether she got top-notch treatment or not. She checked in several times, but she never stayed until she reached what we call the Maintenance stage, where she would have finally gotten to a point where she could transcend the struggle and it was harder to pick up a drink or a drug than it was not to. That’s the goal with treatment: where it’s harder to get loaded than it is to stay clean; where there is no struggle and the drugs don’t have a hold over you any longer. This is something that can happen easily, but not in 30 days based on what some insurance company says. Sometimes you just have to be willing to do what it takes in order to transcend that old damaging destructive behavior. If you are like her and have been using for 20 to 25 years, then what’s 3 or 4 months in order to get your life back, so you can spend the remainder of your life in the magnificence of who you are and live long enough to enjoy your children.
I believe we are the most intensive treatment facility in the world, but there are times, depending on where a person is at, that in 30 days I can’t take you and move you to the place of transcending the struggle so that you can be your best self. If we can’t do this and somebody else promises you they can, they are lying to you. The reality is that we have 28 and 30 day rehab because initially insurance companies would only pay for 28 to 30 days. But how silly is it that this tradition of 30 day treatment is based upon some blood sucking insurance company who couldn’t care less about your wellbeing instead of what the science dictates. Most people require 90 days of treatment depending on where they are at emotionally, the amount and timeframe of usage, the trauma involved, and so forth. So when people say they put their best foot forward in a treatment center and they say, “I’ve been to rehab, I left after 30 days, I finished my commitment”, well basically what you are saying is “I’m not willing to do what it takes to be successful and get my life back.” Insurance companies are there to make money. They don’t care about you. In most cases 30 days will not produce long-lasting behavioral change. That’s just the simple truth.
We constantly read about one star after another checking into rehab for a whole host of problems. Often, it’s attributed to “exhaustion” for media press release purposes.
But it’s not just stars who are falling by the wayside. The public as a whole, has started to use prescription drugs as their clutch to get them through whatever curveballs life throws at them.
We spoke to Richard Taite, President and CEO of Cliffside Malibu about the rise and rise of prescription drug abuse in society.
Here is our interview with him….
Celebzter: More and more stars are checking into rehab….do you think both illegal and prescription drugs have become somewhat of an epidemic amongst celebrities?
Richard: It is becoming an epidemic, but not only amongst celebrities. We are seeing it more amongst professional athletes, business professionals, it could even be your next door neighbor, your best friend, or your wife. The majority of our clientele come to be treated for a prescription drug abuse problem.
Celebzter: Why do you think stars, more so than the normal folk, fall into the dangerous trap of alcohol and drug abuse?
Richard: The biggest reason for this is because, for celebrities, the access to alcohol and drugs is much easier and the quantity is pretty much unlimited. They are frequently at events where they can have any substance they want, and any amount they want. Stars are often thrown into the life of fame and fortune before they have developed the necessary skills to cope with everything that that lifestyle entails and that’s where some get trapped into making bad choices.
Celebzter: Is it the pressure of the spotlight, or an insecurity which leads them to get a high from something else?
Richard: Everyone is different and will have different reasons for using, but basically they are trying to escape that moment because they don’t want to feel pain, or stress, or anxiety, or an uncomfortable feeling. They might have suffered from a traumatic childhood, or maybe they are terrified of large crowds, or maybe they lack social skills. These deep underlying issues and lack of coping skills are the big reasons why people use.
Celebzter: Do you think Hollywood is glamourizing/deglamourizing drug use these days?
Richard: I think it has stayed consistent.
Celebzter: Moving away from celebrities for one second, why do think the western world has such a problem with addiction? Could it be blamed on both personal bad experiences and the recession, which propelled many into despair and depression as they struggled to survive and find a job, and used it as a painkiller?
Richard: The important thing to note here is that there isn’t just one simple explanation for why addiction occurs for some and not others, and by the same token, there isn’t just one magic treatment program that works for everyone. Every addict has underlying issues that caused them to abuse alcohol and drugs in the first place, ranging from physical abuse as a child, to getting teased at school, to getting fired at work, to having back surgery at 40 years old.
Celebzter: If someone is self- medicating to block something out, what is your best advice to them?
Richard: If someone is abusing a substance to the point of dependence, they need to get help from the best treatment center they can. They will need a safe, comfortable detox program, and that should be followed up with an addiction treatment plan that will help get to the root of the underlying reasons for self-medicating in the first place. The best treatment facilities, just like anything else that is the best, come at a high price, but at Cliffside Malibu we understand that not everybody has the opportunity to access a top-notch facility such as ours. This is why we make the best possible recommendations and referrals based on the person’s exact needs. Long term addiction recovery is possible with the right treatment, and they can go on to excel and live the life they were always mean to live.
Celebzter: Are shows such as Intervention a good or bad thing?
Richard: Shows like this don’t give people a chance at a true recovery. They don’t really get help when they are not being completely honest and authentic, and what happens is they end up just playing to the camera. What is even worse is that once they relapse, they are under the illusory impression that they had actually given rehab a chance when they had not. Not to mention the fact that when they do ultimately relapse, because they are getting substandard treatment, they are usually under contract by the TV show to allow the train wreck at the end to be shown. This furthers their embarrassment and gives the addict further reason to medicate the embarrassment away. It’s actually quite mean-spirited.
Celebzter: Do you think people are abusing now more than ever?
Richard: That’s a great question, and I know people are abusing prescriptions drugs now more so than ever. I know that because I see it first-hand. But I see street drugs not being used as much as they used to be. Scoring illegal drugs is quite inconvenient and a lot of times what happens is you put yourself in harm’s way and in dangerous situations with dangerous people. Doctor shopping, online pharmacies, and pill mills are not only a less expensive way to get high, but a much more convenient way to get drugs, especially for the upper middle class and very well to do.
Celebzter: If so, what can we do to stop this trend?
Richard: Provide more education and awareness about why addiction really happens, how you really can overcome it and how to help and support a loved one with an addiction. With the right help, it’s possible to overcome an addiction and live the life you were always meant to live.
With stars checking in and out of rehab with such frequency, we’ve always wondered what really goes on in rehab and what it is really like. So, today we take you behind closed doors, and give you an insight into what is the day-to-day reality of being in a treatment facility.
We spoked exclusively to Richard Taite, President and CEO of Cliffside Malibu, who gave us a better perspective on life in rehab.
Here is our interview with him….
Celebzter: Cliffside Malibu is described as a 5-star rehab, what are the attributes that make it more elite than other facilities?
Richard: The level of expertise and service provided by the entire staff is impeccable. We have personalized treatment programs that are created for each individual based on their needs, and along with one-on-one therapy, we have available an entire array of integrated holistic treatment therapies such as yoga, personal fitness instruction, chiropractic care, massage, detox foot baths, acupuncture, orthomolecular therapy, brain mapping/neurofeedback, EMDR, hyperbaric chambers to name a few.
We also provide high-end quality to all the accommodations on our site. That means, 1000 thread count sheets, down pillows and comforters, flat screen TV’s, DVR’s, turn down service, maid service, chefs that cook to order for all dietary needs, comforts that our clients are used to on a regular basis.
Cliffside Malibu is located on a private, serene estate, with white water ocean views which acts as a natural calming and soothing atmosphere during some intense times in our clients lives.
Celebzter: Can you tell us a little about what the treatment facility offers in terms of specialists?
Richard: We only use specialists for all areas of our treatment programs and therapies that we offer, such as:
The Stages of Change
Relapse Prevention Therapy
Equine Assisted Therapy
Celebzter: What are the success rates?
Richard: Our success rates are among the highest in the country. To date, of those clients that have successfully completed all 3 levels of care, none have relapsed, however, this represents only about 22% of our alumni. What typically happens is because our clientele is so successful in other areas of their life they believe that success transfers over to their capability of dealing with their addiction, so roughly 4 out of 5 leave prior to going through all 3 levels of care (which typically takes about 90 days). So, if a client leaves after 30 days, or 60 days, we do not track their success rate because we are only interested in the success rate of people that have fully completed all 3 levels of care. Out of the more than 200 people who have done this, all achieved at least 1 year of continuous sobriety.
Celebzter: Have you had a slew of famous faces pass through your doors?
Richard: Cliffside Malibu has a strict policy of confidentiality. The majority of our clients consist of elite business professionals and their families, captains of industry and their families, politicians and their families, world leaders and their families, and many professional sports franchise owners and their families. This is truly a place for people who absolutely, positively, have to have the finest treatment experience in a safe, empathetic setting, with all of the amenities they are used to in the course of their daily lives.
Celebzter: How much does a stay cost?
Richard: Our monthly rates range from $53,000 for a semi-private room, to $68,000 for a private room. The length of stay differs for everyone, as everyone has different needs.
Celebzter: What we are most interested is the day-today practicalities of what it is like being in rehab as most of our readers have never been. Can you walk us through the first day when a patient arrives? What happens?
Richard: The first day at Cliffside Malibu is filled with the intake process which consists of the following: a tour upon arrival to familiarize the patient with the facility and all the amenities; filling out admissions paperwork; completing a medical assessment with a personal physician; introduction to staff and present patients; showing patient to their room; and in most cases, it is the beginning of a safe and comfortable detoxification process. The first 72 hours at Cliffside Malibu are called the “acclimation period”. During the acclimation period the client’s therapist and personal physicians work together to create the individualized treatment plan outlining goals and objectives to ensure the client’s success. We do not require any participation in a full treatment schedule. We want patients to have time to safely get through their detox, familiarize themselves with the facility, and slowly start the recovery process. After 72 hours we encourage full participation in their schedule.
Celebzter: If people are badly addicted to drugs or alcohol, how do you wean them off them?
Richard: The body’s physical dependence on a substance is the first thing we address and eliminate by using a professional, properly implemented, medically supervised detox program. At Cliffside Malibu we make this process as painless and comfortable as possible.
Celebzter: Doesn’t someone die if they suddenly stop drinking or taking drugs?
Richard: The symptoms of withdrawal are very serious and can actually be deadly in some cases. Your body has become dependent on a particular substance for so long, and to simply just stop taking that substance can cause an adverse reaction or even failure in your organs, heart, or brain. A medically supervised detox program is critical for a chance at successful recovery.
Celebzter: Are people moody, throwing up, irrational?
Richard: The first week is the hardest for most, especially having to go through detox, but we try to make it as painless and as comfortable as possible. The reality is your body is going through some pretty hard changes and having reactions to these changes is normal. Detox if done incorrectly can be quite painful, but here at Cliffside Malibu the patient along with his personal physician collaborate to go through a painless a detox as humanly possible. I would equate this to a cold or minor flu symptoms, which is remarkable when you think about the long-term damage that some of these patients have put themselves through. All of this is being done in a safe, contained, supportive environment with all the creature comforts of home.
Celebzter: How do you calm them down?
Richard: There is no need to calm anyone down when they are being treated with dignity, empathy and respect. When people feel that you genuinely care for their well-being and are coming from a good place there is very little containment that needs to be done. However, containment can only be done when you have top-notch professionals who know what they are doing, and have been doing this for a long time.
Celebzter: Are those first few days the most difficult?
Richard: Many people handle the process differently. For some the first day of detox is the most difficult, for others it’s when they realize how they screwed up their lives and the lives of their loved ones, and that could be in the first few days or after a few weeks. Sometimes the difficult days come right before they go back out in the world. It is always difficult giving up something that you hold as valuable until you replace it with something more valuable.
Celebzter: From there, what happens?
Richard: Treatment begins meeting the client where they are at. Since everyone comes in at a different stage of change, everyone’s treatment experience is personal to them.
Celebzter: How hard is it for people to break their addictions?
Richard: The difficulty of overcoming an addiction is different for each person, and depends on several factors: what type of substance(s) were being abused, how long it was being abused, and how much of the substance(s) were being abused. Someone who had back surgery and became dependent on pain killers for 4 months will probably require less time in treatment, have fewer issues to address, and will respond to therapies quicker. Someone who has been an alcoholic for 20 years, drinking a bottle of vodka every day, will usually require more time in treatment, will have more deep-rooted issues to address and process, and their body will have more physical damage to repair.
Celebzter: How do you help them do that?
Richard: A dedicated treatment team creates a personalized program which involves intense, one on one therapy along with an array of integrated holistic interventions. As each client progresses through the stages of change we are there helping them every step of the way, and making adjustments to the treatment path where necessary.
Celebzter: What tools do you give them to be able to function in the real world once they leave?
Richard: The whole process here at Cliffside Malibu is to create a self-awareness on why it is you behave the way you do, why it is you feel you have to self-medicate the pain, and about healing old wounds and correcting old behaviors. Once you leave Cliffside Malibu, you HAVE the tools to succeed outside of Cliffside. However, like anything else in life, if you are not working to get better at something then you are probably getting worse at it, and recovery is no different. For example, a client who leaves Cliffside Malibu will either be sent back to his current therapist and if there wasn’t one, be referred to a panel of therapists that we have vetted, so that the client may continue the good work that he has started at Cliffside Malibu. We typically suggest a client see a therapist twice a week for the first 90 days, and then depending on how he feels, titrate down to once a week. Remember, therapy isn’t something you have to do, it’s something you get to do. Working on yourself to become the best person you can possibly be is the most esteem-able thing someone can do for themselves.
Celebzter: Is being in real rehab anything like what is shown on TV on Celebrity Rehab?
Richard: No, it is nothing like the TV show. People don’t get help when they are not completely honest and authentic and they are playing to the camera. What’s worse is once they relapse they are under the illusory impression that they had actually given rehab a chance when they had not.
Celebzter: What is the most rewarding part?
Richard: Hearing from alumni a month later, a year later, 5 years later, saying they are living the life they were always meant to live. They are thriving. They have joy.
