Before celebrities ever came into the picture, rehab centers were considered to be a source of shame and evidence of sin. Though mind-altering substances have been around for centuries, addiction had always been frowned upon. People who traversed the invisible line and had to be checked into rehab, the treatment was often discussed in hushed undertones. Then came the celebrities and they changed all that!

Today, many celebrities have perpetuated the fact that trips to rehab are intrinsic to fame, for there are so many celebrities who seem to have been there, done that, and then done it all over again, and again! It seems that just like casual spa trips, trips to rehab add allure to their public intrigue. Tabloids and the paparazzi that let us peek into the turbulent lives of these celebs are making matters worse by reporting rehab check-ins in the most anesthetizing and shallow ways, that take the whole reality of what rehab really entails; a lot of hard work! And when Lindsay Lohan gets busted for drunk driving, getting into rehab and then continuing to party; or when Kate Moss does coke, checks into rehab and emerges richer and more famous, it doesn't help one bit! Here’s a look at some repeat rehab offenders that make rehab check-ins practically look like spa trips.

12 Drew Barrymore

11 Kelly Osbourne

10 Amy Winehouse

9 Keith Urban

8 Robbie Williams

7 Whitney Houston

6 Britney Spears

5 Lindsay Lohan

4 Kate Moss

3 Robert Downey Jr.

2 Charlie Sheen

1 Amanda Bynes

Nickelodeon’s amazing starlet Amanda Bynes, started quite young and reached higher peaks than even those with established Hollywood careers, at a tender age. Probably unable to handle the fame and adulation and even owing to mental illnesses (which were diagnosed at a much later stage), the star has managed to throw away her life and success. Multiple rehab stints, multiple arrests for various reasons and multiple commitments to psychiatric wards have still not managed to get the star’s life back on track. She had been checked into rehab even as recently as 2014, for marijuana addiction. Still, if one were to go by her own words, she’s always claimed, “I don’t drink. I’m allergic to alcohol. I don’t smoke pot. I smoke tobacco.”
