The country music star died of an apparent self-inflicted gun wound on the same porch where her boyfriend, David Wilson, met the same end a month earlier. Because of her continued abuse of prescription drugs and alcohol, her children were removed from her care by child services in early February. She had been working on a suicide-prevention video, set to her cover of “I’ll See You Yesterday,” at the time of her death.

In 2011 the bassist for Alice in Chains (whose first EP was titled “We Die Young”) became the first Celebrity Rehab alum to die after overdosing on prescription medications, at age 44. His death sparked the beginning of the debate on whether the show helps or hurts its patients.

He first gained notoriety on The Real World: Hollywood in 2008 and left the show halfway through the season to check into rehab. At age 29, he overdosed on a combination of alcohol, cocaine, and Viagra.

Before joining Dr. Drew’s cast, the star of One Day at a Time published her memoir, High on Arrival, which documented her struggle with drugs and her allegedly abusive and incestuous relationship with her father. She continues to appear on TV, and tweeted after McCready’s death, “My heart is breaking. Rest in Peace dear friend. #MindyMcCready I think I'm in shock. Prayers to her family.”

Tom Sizemore

After a tumultuous relationship with Heidi Fleiss (later a co-patient on Season 3), the star of Saving Private Ryan was arrested for assault and battery. His career is arguably in the best shape post-rehab, as he’s now involved in multiple film projects (including last year’s The Drunk and the still-in-production Meth Head).

A former Hollywood madam, she had to give special consent to appear alongside Sizemore on Rehab after her restraining order against him lapsed. Along with several other castmates, she agreed to spend time at a sober living facility after the show ended, which was documented in Sober House.

Lisa D’Amato

A musician and model, D’Amato gained attention for her substance abuse as a contestant on cycle five of America’s Next Top Model. She recently injured her face in an accident on the set of Cowboys and Indians, and posted photos of the damage on social media. On McCready’s death, she told Us Weekly, “All my friends from the show are dying. I’m so shaken up right now. I’m mad at her and the world and everything. She tried to be better and to get better.”

Dennis Rodman

After an intervention for his alcoholism on The Celebrity Apprentice, Rodman agreed to appear on Rehab and subsequently Sober House. He’s now promoting his children’s book, Dennis the Wild Bull.

Kari Ann Peniche

Best known for being Miss Teen USA and appearing in Playboy, Peniche appeared in both Celebrity Rehab and Sex Rehab (in which she claimed to sneak drugs into the house in a teddy bear). In December she was accused of cheating drug tests with other people’s urine, throwing her custody of her son into question.
