Dr. Drew talks DJ AM

Everyone's been weighing in on the death of DJ AM, but mainly just messages to rest in peace and well-wishes to his family. But Dr. Drew Pinsky is looking at it from another angle -- the angle of an addiction doc. He thinks that pain pills that were prescribed to him were the stepping stone to falling back into his crack addiction.

It very slowly and subtly reawakens addiction. I'm not saying it was inappropriately prescribed, I'm saying he didn't know the risks.

Ya know, between the AM death and the whole Michael Jackson debacle, I wonder if someone is going to look at the way doctors treat their celebrity patients. Maybe AM should've been treated A LOT more carefully.
