Dr. Drew's patients have only recently checked in to Celebrity Rehab, but there is already a major predicament. Gary Busey is feeling insecure about his place amongst the patients. He would like to make it clear to Dr. Drew that he is here to provide assistance and guidance. Several of the patients are detoxifying from the dangerous drugs on which their bodies have become physiologically dependent. In the first group process meeting, Dr. Drew and his staff point out that the first obstacle they must face in treatment is the fear of kicking their drug habits, which can be a painful and uncomfortable experience. Dr. Drew likens the process to grieving - a notion that resonates with most of the patients.
