This is a list of politicians who went to rehab, with photos when available. Rehabilitation is no joke, yet when a politician enters detox, we can't help but stare. Unfortunately for politicians there is a double standard. When substance abuse affects an ordinary individual it is thought to be the result of stress or depression. With politicians though, we tend to blame their extravagance getting the better of them.
Washington D.C. Mayor went to rehab for drug abuse after he was arrested for possession of crack cocaine in 1990. Though he served a six month prison term, Barry was once again voted in as mayor in 1995.
