Pete Doherty has been thrown out of rehab in Thailand.
Doherty had checked into The Cabin in Chiang Mai to seek help for heroin and crack cocaine addiction. However, the former Libertines front man has been asked to leave three weeks into his treatment, amid claims he was a “disruptive influence” on other patients.
The Cabin’s manager, Alastair Mordey, said of Doherty’s exit:
“Pete was discharged today for therapeutic reasons. It is important to maintain the integrity of the treatment programme for the other clients to have a good chance of recovery. Pete understands this and therefore the reasons behind why we have asked him to leave.”
“Although our parting with Pete is amicable, we are of course disappointed to see him leave. We hope some of the things he has learnt here will help him in the future and look forward to the day when Pete decides to consider recovery again”
It is understood Doherty has left the facility, which costs £7,200 a month, and is flying back to London’s Heathrow today (July 18).
Doherty has been battling addiction for many years now, and this is not the first time he has attempted rehabilitation. His last stint was in 2007, at the Clouds House rehab clinic in Wiltshire, where he stayed for six weeks, but later relapsed.
We hope he gets better sooner or later .
