Pete Doherty wants to help other drug addicts get sober.

The Libertines singer - who has endured numerous stints in rehab in the past - is a month into treatment at the Hope Rehab in Bangkok and believes so strongly in the programme that he wants to establish a foundation to help fund stays for other people wanting to kick their deadly habits.

Clinic founder Simon Mott said: ''I think there is a difference between motivation and inspiration, we have designed our programme to include many of the wonders Thailand has to offer visitors.

''Peter is not only a talented musician but a strong character who has a lot to offer - he has expressed a wish to use his influence to help other struggling addicts. Together with Hope he wants to start a trust funding treatment places.''

The founder has known the 'What A Waster' hitmaker for some time and felt his approach would help the troubled rocker in his battle against heroin addiction.

A statement from the clinic given to read: ''[Simon] believes a change in environment is important for recovery and invited Pete to get involved with his new treatment project in Thailand.

''Many addicts do not fit into conventional rehabs, however today [Pete] is a month into his recovery of a well-documented heroin addiction. Peter does not suit typical treatment approaches - clinical environments limited by their setting and formality.''
