Pete has reportedly checked himself into rehab in Portugal in another attempt to beat drugs.
The Babyshambles star made the decision to enter rehab himself and flew out to Portugal at the beginning of the week.
It is thought he will stay there for several weeks while he detoxes and will be fitted with an "opiate-suppressing implant" before he leaves.
It comes a week after he was banned from all easyJet flights after staff found a bloody syringe in a toilet on one of their aircraft. He was held by Spanish police at Barcelona airport but no drugs were found on him.
A source said: "The decision to undergo rehab was Doherty's own, and he organised and funded the trip without any outside pressure.
"He will spend the next few weeks detoxing, after which he will be fitted with an opiate-suppressing implant."
Doherty, 27, was due to appear at Thames Magistrates' Court in east London tomorrow for a review of his progress in a drug treatment programme.
In April he was sentenced to a community order with two years' supervision and 18 months' drug rehabilitation for drugs offences and two months earlier he received a 12-month community order when he was sentenced on a separate charge of seven counts of possessing controlled drugs.
This is Doherty's fourth stay in rehab after having stints in the Priory, a clinic in France and at the Thamkrabok Monastery in Thailand.
