LOS ANGELES - George Carlin is entering a drug rehabilitation facility to shake his dependence on wine and a painkiller. I’m going into rehab because I use too much wine and Vicodin,” the 67-year-old Carlin said in a statement released Monday by his publicist, Jeff Abraham. “No one told me I needed this. I recognized the problem and took the step myself.”
Good luck George!
