Haim Approached By Celebrity Rehab Days Before Death

Tragic actor COREY HAIM rejected offers for a televised intervention on U.S. programme CELEBRITY REHAB WITH DR. DREW in the final days before he died of an apparent drug overdose.
The 38-year-old star collapsed at his home in Oakwood, California in the early hours of Wednesday morning (10Mar10) and was taken to St Joseph's hospital in Burbank, where he was pronounced dead.
The troubled actor had long battled prescription drug abuse and he made a reported 15 trips to rehab in a bid to kick his demons.
Ironically, Celebrity Rehab casting directors pitched the show to Haim's mother last October (09), and followed up with the actor within the last 10 days, in an effort to help him get his life back on track.
According to TMZ.com, Haim shot down the offer to appear on Dr. Drew Pinsky's show, and ended a brief conversation with casting bosses, saying, "I do not need help." A source close to the TV show also told the website Haim was "extremely defensive and insulted," and stated, "It's the last show I'd ever do."
According to Los Angeles Coroner's Office, there were no signs of foul play in Haim's death. The cause of death will be released pending the results of his autopsy and toxicology reports.
