NME.com is reporting that Pete Doherty flew out to Portugal this week, and has entered himself into a rehab clinic in yet another attempt to kick his infamous drug addictions. Normally this wouldnt be cause for optimism since the talented, but oft-troubled Babyshambles frontman has made numerous attempts to clean up his act, all of which ended in resounding failure. What separates this case however, are reports that Doherty made the decision himself to undergo rehab, without the urgings of anyone else.
According to the report, Doherty will spend the next few weeks in detox, before being fitted with what is being called an opiate-suppressing implant. Hopefully this is the first step towards Doherty turning his life around. Any developments in this story will be reported as they occur.
