But today--ironically the very morning after VH1 aired the Celebrity Rehab 2 finale, on which Steven received his graduation papers from Dr. Drew and made a pledge to transition into a sober-living facility (and appear on the upcoming sequel show, Sober House)--Steven was back in court again.
Today a Los Angeles court commissioner ordered Steven to return to rehab, which is the only way he'll be able to avoid doing prison time for a July 2008 arrest for felony drug possession.HERE.
Guess Steven had good reason to be worried. I'm still worried about him myself, frankly.
Anyway, while I am very much looking forward to watching Sober House--which debuts January 15 and will star Steven Adler; his season 2 castmates Nikki McKibbin, Amber Smith, and Rodney King; season 1 alums Mary Carey and Shifty from Crazytown; and random basketcase Andy Dick--I know that Steven's story will sadly not end there.
In fact, I would hardly be surprised if, much like recurring Rehab characters Shifty and Jeff Conaway, he makes a tail-between-bowed-legs return to Celebrity Rehab 3.
And when he does, I'll still be rooting for him.
