Dr. Drew to Miley Cyrus: Seek Help!

by at . Comments

You won't believe this, but Dr. Drew Pinsky has an opinion on the Miley Cyrus salvia controversy.

Asked by Access Hollywood about the video of that singer smoking a hallucinogenic herb at her 18th birthday party, Dr. Drew cited the divorce of Miley's parents.

“Her family’s in trouble, so it’s not unusual to see depression manifesting as various kinds of acting out behaviors. Adolescents don’t get depressed the way adults do. They don’t get sad and cry and withdraw. They often act out and become irritable... she seems to be suffering.”

Celebrating Herself

Dr. Drew thinks Miley Cyrus should seek help. Preferably on VH1, we'd imagine, in front of a camera and a certain exploitive therapist.

What advice does the Celebrity Rehab host have for Miley?

“If I had a child that was doing that or if I was advising a parent, I would say get professional help immediately,” he said. “This is a child who is in trouble and who is suffering and this is her way of trying to manage that. Get professional help.”

So far, we've only heard one thing from Billy Ray Cyrus on the incident. He's very sad about it.
