Gary Busey, rocker Steven Adler and 1980s pin-up Tawny Kitaen will join Grease star Jeff Conaway for the second season of hard-hitting reality show Celebrity Rehab.

Conaway, who quit the show's first season days before his treatment was complete, revealed he was returning to the show to kick his dependency of painkillers on the red carpet at the TV Land Awards over the weekend.

Busey and the others seeking the help of TV psychologist Dr. Drew Pinsky checked into the televised rehab on Monday.

Busey, who claims 13 years of sobriety, is not among the troubled souls on the show--the actor has been hired to help the group members through the recovery process.

Joining Conaway, Adler and Kitaen on the show are model Amber Smith, Rod Stewart's son Sean and Rodney King, whose televised police beating in 1992 sparked the Los Angeles riots.

The intense 21-day program will be filmed and aired on VH1 in October.

The first season of Celebrity Rehab featured Conaway, Daniel BaldwinBrigitte Nielsen and wrestler Chyna.
