Uchitel, 35, will be treated for her relationship woes and is "addicted to love", Us Weekly magazine said. Uchitel has not commented on the report.

The show's fourth season is set to air before the end of 2010, VH1 said. The contestants will undergo detoxification and therapy for 21 days at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

"Dr. Drew hopes to use his celebrity patients to humanize the process and show viewers that treatment is a viable way to break the cycle of addiction," VH1 said.

Woods has apologized publicly about his infidelity to wife Elin Nordegren and has undergone therapy himself. The two are reported to be in the process of getting divorced. Woods has not confirmed reports of cheating on Nordegren with up to 12 women, including Uchitel, who has been linked to him by numerous news outlets.

London, who stared in the 1990s drama series Party of Five and the Kevin Smith movie Mallrats, made headlines in June when he reported he was kidnapped and forced to use drugs at gunpoint. His twin brother Jason later said London had kicked an addiction to prescription medication last year and was seven months sober at the time of his kidnapping.

Dickinson, who says she is the first recorded "supermodel", is no stranger to reality shows. She was a judge on Tyra Banks' show America's Next Top Model and her own series, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency ran from 2006 to 2008.

Wahler, who starred on The Hills, which ended last week, was sentenced in May to three years probation after pleading guilty to drunk driving and was also ordered to spend three months in an alcohol-offender program.

Past contestants on Celebrity Rehab include actor Gary Busey and former Hollywood  madam Heidi Fleiss.
