While the fifth season of “Celebrity Rehab” is still underway, with Sean Young, Bai Ling, and Michael Lohan seeking help for their various addictions, it could mark the last change any star (or even Lohan) has for some small screen healing from Dr. Drew Pinsky.

According to Radar Online, the addiction medicine specialist is hanging up his “Rehab” hat and putting the show on an indefinite hiatus.

"The decision was made to put the show on hiatus because Dr. Drew Pinsky is just too busy to continue to do the show,” a source revealed.

It seems Pinsky has time for his HLN offering, “The Dr. Drew Show,” his upcoming CW effort, “Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers,” and of course, his long running radio show, “Loveline,” but something had to give in his jam-packed schedule.

"The amount of time Dr. Drew has to commit to treating celebrities on the show is a tremendous amount of time,” the source explained of Pinsky’s decision to give up on “Rehab” — for now.

If time allows, there is a possibility the good doctor could revisit the reality TV treatment center one day.

“Dr. Drew really enjoyed doing the show, even though it could be very emotionally grueling at times,” said the source.
