This is a list of guitarists 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 though, we tend to blame their extravagance getting the better of them (and the luxury rehab centers they attend don't help their case).

  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, crack/cocaine, and meth. Treatment centers also deal with more than just drug abuse. One can go to the hospital for conditions such as anorexia as well. At the end of the day, we should respect the guitarists on this list for seeking the help they needed.
