In January of 2014, Kesha, the pop singer, checked herself into a rehab for an eating disorder. Kesha is a strong promoter in loving yourself for who you are, but claims she was having trouble practicing the motto she promoted. She checked into Knolls Residential Treatment Center near Chicago, the same facility Demi Lovato entered in November 2010. Kesha spent 2 months at the facility and emerged healthy and positive.
In May of 2014, Portia De Rossi, the actress and wife of Ellen DeGeneres, checked into Passages Malibu rehab center for drugs and alcohol.

In January of 2014, Selena Gomez, the actress and pop singer, entered Arizonaâ€™s Dawn at the Meadows rehab for mental issues. She claimed to be in a depression and was unhappy with herself. This was her second attempt at rehab. This points to Selena wanting help and trying to better herself. She admits to struggling with peer pressure and trying to fit a certain label. Her recent struggles with her on and off again boyfriend Justin Beiber also add fuel to the fire.
In October of 2014, Amanda Bynes, the actress, checked into treatment facility in Los Angeles, where she has been placed on involuntary psychiatric hold. She is considered to be a danger to herself and others. Bynes has been in the news for countless years and offenses. She has gone to rehab for drug, alcohol, and her latest, mental health. She has committed several offenses including DUIs and shoplifting, to name a few. She also claimed her father verbally and sexually abused her. Hopefully she can receive the help she needs at this facility.
