'Rehab With Dr. Drew': Deanna Discusses Her History Of Sexual Abuse (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Deanna's stint on "Rehab with Dr. Drew" has certainly gotten off to a rocky start, if this week's episode was any indication. She was able to take advantage of the therapy sessions offered to start to talk about the experiences in her past that might have led to her seeking refuge in her addictions.

She talked about being molested as a child, and then raped twice as an adult. "He held me overnight the second time. He held me and my baby. He did it in front of my 1-year-old," she said.

Even worse, her mother said it was her own fault that it had happened. "That’s what you get for being high," she quoted her mother as saying.

Later in the episode, Deanna complained of heart problems, leading the staff to call for an ambulance. Jennifer, one of the workers there, told VH1 a little more about the health scare, which went on for a few days during which her blood pressure and heart rate were checked.

Three more people checked in to "Rehab with Dr. Drew" for treatment and help, creating even more tension and drama in the group. Watch it all every Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on VH1.
