Dr. Drew Releases Statement On Mindy McCready's Death

Dr. Drew Releases Statement

Dr. Drew has released a statement regarding Mindy McCready's death who shot herself in front porch this past weekend. She became the 3rd cast member from her season to pass away and the 5th cast member combined from the series,

Dr. Drew offered an official statement to Buzzfeed

I am deeply saddened by this awful news. My heart goes out to Mindy’s family and children. She is a lovely woman who will be missed by many. Although I have not treated her for a few years, I had reached out to her recently upon hearing about the apparent suicide of her boyfriend and father of her younger children. She was devastated. Although she was fearful of stigma and ridicule she agreed with me that she needed to make herhealth and safety a priority. Unfortunately it seems that Mindy did not sustain her treatment.
Mental health issues can be life threatening and need to be treated with the same intensity and resources as any other dangerous potentially life threatening medical condition. Treatment is effective. If someone you know is suffering please be sure he or she gets help and maintains treatment.

  Mackenzie Phillips, who was her roomate on the 3rd season of the show tells  TMZ "the tragedy is astounding"
