Pete Doherty asked to leave rehab facility in Thailand

July 17, 2012 3

Pete Doherty has left rehab after being discharged from The Cabin Chiang Mai in Thailand.

The singer has been given a therapeutic discharge from the facility after almost three weeks undergoing treatment – but it appears the controversial star was asked to leave the programme.

Alastair Mordey, the programme’s director, said: “Pete was discharged today for therapeutic reasons. It is important to maintain the integrity of the treatment programme for the other clients to have a good chance of recovery. Pete understands this and therefore the reasons behind why we have asked him to leave.

“Although our parting with Pete is amicable, we are of course disappointed to see him leave. We hope some of the things he has learnt here will help him in the future and look forward to the day when Pete decides to consider recovery again.”

Another spokesman spoke about the exit of Doherty, adding: “Pete will always be welcome to return, we developed a good relationship with him and he interacted well. We look forward to him returning to treatment soon.”
