This is a list of over 200 celebrities who went to rehab, with photos. Rehabilitation is no joke, yet when a celeb enters detox, we can't help but stare. Unfortunately for celebs, there is a double standard. When substance abuse affects an ordinary individual it is thought to be the result of stress or depression. With celebrities, we tend to blame their extravagance getting the better of them (and the luxury rehab centers they attend don't help their case).

What celebrities have been to rehab? As Robin Williams joked, "Cocaine is God's way of telling you you are making too much money." That said, alcoholism is a disease, and there are worse things than alcohol, such as heroin, cocaine/crack, and meth. Treatment centers and famous rehab centers also deal with more than just drug abuse. One can go to the hospital for conditions such as anorexia as well. Many in Hollywood have checked in, from the sadly all too common headline "actress in rehab," to comedians who entered rehab to deal with addiction.

At the end of the day though, we should respect the individuals on this list for seeking the help they needed. List is alphabetized by first name.
