Kelly Osbourne Completes another Visit to Rehab

Fresh out of her third visit to rehab, Kelly Osbourne seems to be clean and doing well. Recently, she told the press about her stay in rehab and life long struggle with substance abuse and addiction. Kelly admitted that she may have developed a substance abuse problem as early as 13.

Kelly Osbourne, 24, told People Magazine, “I had my tonsils taken out (at age 13), and they gave me liquid Vicodin.  I found, when I take this, people like me. I’m having fun, I’m not getting picked on. It became a confidence thing.”

Kelly also admitted that although she had been to rehab in 2004 and in 2005, she had never really been clean until now. Kelly and the rest of the Osbournes will star in a new variety show special for Fox, “Osbournes Reloaded”, airing on March 31st.


Jack Osbourne on Drug Addiction and Recovery through the 12-Step Program

It’s only been one week since Kelly Osbourne was admitted into a “medical facility” to address “personal issues” following an arrest in London. Currently, it isn’t clear as to why Kelly was admitted into the facility, however, both Kelly and Jack Osbourne had, at some point, battled with a pain killer addiction.

In this video from 2008, Jack Osbourne explains how he and his sister Kelly both gave up drugs and alcohol by using the 12-step recovery program which promotes total abstinence.

Here, Jack revisits the PROMIS Center, the only rehabilitation program in England that uses the 12-step program for teenagers battling alcohol and drug addiction.  He describes his attitude the last time he was at the front doors of the facility while being (unwillingly) checked in as being angry scared and just pissed off.  


The PROMIS Center uses the 12-Step recovery model for treating everything from alcohol and drug addiction to eating disorders. This eye-opening footage gives an intimate look at the lives of several young patients at the PROMIS Center, some of which developed drug addictions even before their teenage years.

“This situation worries me. Explains Jack. “But I’m glad these kids are learning to stay clean. I’ve been so much happier since I gave up my addiction to drugs, just over a year ago.”   

Kelly Osbourne Back in Rehab


Daughter to rock star Ozzy Osbourne and reality show star Sharon Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne (who was a reality star in her own right in The Osbournes), has checked herself into a “medical facility” in order to address some personal issues according to her publicist in London.


Kelly Osbourne, 24, was arrested last week for allegedly slapping a gossip columnist after the columnist blatantly insulted Kelly Osbourne’s current fiance, Luke Worrall, who was sitting next Kelly during the interview. She was later charged with assault and eventually released on bail.


This isn’t Kelly Osbourne’s first trip to rehab, her last trip was at age 20 and her first visit to a rehabilitation facility came at 18. According to reports, Osbourne, who voluntarily entered the “medical facility”, is reportedly being treated at the Hazelden retreat in Oregon.  

In an appearance on CNN’s “Larry King Live” Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, revealed that they admitted Kelly at age 18 to the Promises rehab facility in Malibu, California for painkiller addiction. Ozzy was quoted as saying that they were astounded at the amount of pills they found in her bag.  


For now, the details of Kelly’s latest stay at rehab remain sketchy. However, in an interview with Radar Online, Sharon Osbourne was quoted as saying “Kelly will tell you herself when she gets out. We just pray that everything’s going to be OK.”
