The unnamed toddler was admitted into a hospital after becoming addicted to alcohol—thanks to his guardians.
This is just terrible! A three-year-old boy was given alcohol regularly for more than six months and is now being treated in a UK hospital to deal with his dependency. Experts say if the child, from West Midlands, didn’t enter treatment, he would suffer from withdrawal symptoms, including mood swings. There is also fear that the toddler might have brain damage. So disturbing.

HollywoodLife.com chats with Sherry Gaba about young Hollywood and addiction!
Sherry Gaba has plenty of hands-on experience analyzing superstar psyche as the resident life coach on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew. When she sees young stars struggling with the demons of addiction and outside pressure, Sherry can only urge them to find the professional help they so desperately need.
With the frantic pacing of fame, Sherry says it is no surprise that stars such as Demi Lovato, 18, turn to outlets such as harming themselves to stay grounded. Self-mutilation is especially common with young people and is often triggered by trauma, abandonment, abuse or neglect. “Cutters feel out of control in life,” Gaba says. “Something in your life is complete chaos and the only way to deal with that is to make yourself feel bad.”
Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller will only save their marriage if they stay “on the wagon” and away from booze, an addiction expert tells HollywoodLife.com
Recovering alcoholics Charlie Sheen, 44, and his wife Brooke Mueller, 32, had both been drinking the night of their now very public domestic dispute, breaking the golden rule for addicts: staying away from all booze. If the couple doesn’t sober up fast, they run the risk of ruining their marriage. When police responded to Brooke’s 911-call late Christmas Eve that Charlie had assaulted her with a switch-blade, she was drunk, blowing a .13 BAC, and Charlie had some alcohol in his system, blowing a .04 BAC. But according to addiction specialist Marty Brenner, neither Charlie nor Brooke should have been drinking at all.
