Patrick Kennedy to go into rehab

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy said Friday that he will enter a drug rehabilitation program after crashing his car on Capitol Hill a day earlier, CNN has learned.

"I know that I need help," he said at an afternoon press conference, detailing what he called a long-term struggle with addiction.

"I struggle every day with this disease, as do millions of Americans," he said.

He said he had been in the Mayo Clinic during the congressional recess at Christmas and returned "reinvigorated and healthy."

Kennedy, 39, said that he had no recollection of the events surrounding the crash into a barricade on Capitol Hill early Thursday.
So much for the Ambien story.

Check out my post on this. I find it a little strange that he jumped at rehab with all the Q's about why there was no sobriety test, particularly when he claims there was no drinking and others say he did drink (even if a little). Mix 3-4 shots of alcohol with Ambien, and what happens?

I've enabled comment moderation because I am tired of deleting anonymous comments wishing ill (to the point of death) on anyone.

You can consider death wishes toward al qaeda leaders OK though, commenters.
