Why didn't rehab save Cory Monteith?
When the Glee star died at 31 of a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol, he was just two months out of treatment for substance abuse. Post-rehab, the actor looked healthy and happy, attending a hockey game with his girlfriend, Lea Michele, dining out with friends and attending a photo call for the next season of his FOX hit.
But addiction experts say that the immediate period after rehab is one of tremendous vulnerability.
"Newly sober people are more fragile than before they became addicts," says Bob Forrest, a California-based certified drug and alcohol counselor.

Kristen Johnston knows how to get your attention.
"All you got to do is drop trou," she tells PEOPLE. "Pretty much that's the biggest statement you can make. Drop trou, get on a plastic horse and people start paying attention."
Johnston got naked (and got on a plastic horse) to bring awareness to the inhumane treatment of carriage horses in New York City. Four years after that memorable PETA campaign, the actress is being honored for her continued efforts to bring an end to the carriage horse rides that are a staple of the Big Apple by New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets (NYCLASS), an organization she was turned on to by a friend on the board.

Kristen Johnston is speaking out against horse-drawn carriages – and stripping down in the process.
The 3rd Rock from the Sun star will appear in a new PETA ad campaign called "Don’t Get Taken for a Ride – Horse-Drawn Carriages Are Cruel." In her ad, Johnston, 41, appears naked on the back of a horse in a pose that recalls Lady Godiva.
