The cast of VH1's CELEBRITY REHAB WITH DR. DREW reunited for a 90-minute special last night. Everyone is doing incredibly well since the show wrapped last August.

Ricco Rodriguez - has been completely clean since the show. He completed a 90-day program and is back at work in the fighting industry to support his family.
Brigitte Nielson - has quit alcohol and smoking cigarettes. She says her husband has been her support throughout and is happy to be sober for him and her three sons.
Chyna - is still working on herself by seeing a therapist. She admits to a glass of wine here and there and is trying to focus her energy on herself by hitting the gym again.
Mary Carey - still drinks now and then, but feels like she has control of herself. She says she has not appeared in any adult films since the show, but still feature dances for money. She hopes she'll be able to quit that one day. Carey credited Dr. Drew with saving her life.
Jaimee Foxworth - still smoke marijuana, but not as much as before. She says she feels like she has control of her addiction now. Jaimee's mother appeared on the reunion and asked her to quit weed completely and told her she believes in her.
Jeff Conaway - left CELEBRITY REHAB early so her could have surgery. He has had four surgeries since the show and has another planned. He's still taking heavy drugs to deal with back pain. Dr. Drew told Jeff he wants him off those drugs and he said he would try in the future. Conaway credited his girlfriend with helping him to get better. Brigitte Nielson told Vikki that she's a "mess" and should get some help. Vikki said she felt like she was being attacked. Dr. Drew thanked Vikki for helping Jeff and said that he could provide her with help if she wanted it. (Since this show, Jeff appeared on INSIDE EDITION and admitted he's kicked his habit thanks to Scientology. He says John Travolta got him into the controversial religion.)
Daniel Baldwin - did not appear on the reunion show. All of the celebrities were resentful of Baldwin for leaving early. Jeff said that everyone was a family and did not appreciate how Daniel hit on Marey Carey. Dr. Drew wished Baldwin only good things in the future.
Jessica Sierra - did not appear on the reunion show. She was called to court in Florida after the show. Dr. Drew cautioned her that going would lead to a relapse, which it did. Sierra was arrested and faced 10 years in jail. Dr. Drew flew to Florida to appear in court with Jessica. He urged the judge to let her do to rehab because 10 years behind bars would be the end of her. Sierra is now back in Dr. Drew's rehab until January 2009. If she does anything wrong, she'll be sent to jail. Jessica's sister appared on the reunion show. She read an emotional letter from Jessica, which thanked Dr. Drew for saving her life.
