Charlie Sheen has had his poor stamina and unusual fantasies exposed to the world this week. But that’s not the most harrowing aspect of the actor’s most recent ordeal:

We now need to hear Dr. Drew Pinsky weigh in on the rehabbing star.

“Let’s all be hopeful he’s going in the right direction,” the attention-starved doc told People. “Charlie’s been in recovery before. He’s actually been an active recovering person, so he knows what it is.”

He also knows how to scoff, loudly and dangerously, at the concept.

Dr. Drew says people in Sheen’s situation “need a long term of structure for them to capitulate and take direction.” Most importantly, the Celebrity Rehab host says? The Two and a Half Men star can’t rush himself.

“It’s like any form of rehabilitation. Whether you are rehabilitating from an ankle injury or pneumonia, you’ve got to take the time and you’ve got to get out of the environments that impact adversely on the recovery process – whether it’s a limb, an organ or the brain.”
