Mark Groubert, who wrote the three articles that make up “Rehab City” in the June 27 issue of LA Weekly, was a guest on Dr. Drew's nationally syndicated radio show yesterday. Dr. Drew Pinsky is of course the long-time co-host of KROQ's Loveline, and various MTV spinoffs, which have gotten increasingly cringe-inducing (I'm looking at you, Celebrity Rehab. Jeff Conaway deserves better than that).
Still, Drew's great on the radio, and the interview's well worth hearing, explaining how Mark got deep inside Impact's recovery process.
