Desperate family hired 24hr 'sober coach' for Michael Jackson

Dr Howard Samuels is a favourite with A-list stars

Michael Jackson's family were so concerned about his addiction to powerful painkillers they considered forcibly admitting him to a rehabilitation clinic just two weeks before he died.

The plan - which would have involved psychiatrists trying to convince a judge he was a danger to himself and others - was abandoned only because of Jackson's resistance, and the overwhelming pressure to fulfil his concert commitments in London.

  1. The primary duty of a sober coach is to ensure the recovering addict does not relapse.
