The latest in a long line of drug arrests for Doherty, 27, had the British rock star pleading guilty in London's Thames Magistrate's Court Thursday to possession of crack cocaine, heroin and marijuana, the Sun reported.

"It is going to be a long and slow process, but you are showing significant signs of compliance and effort," District Judge Jane McIvor said in sentencing Doherty to continue his court-ordered drug rehab along with two years supervision and a six-month suspension of his driving privileges.

Doherty's attorney, Sean Curran, told the judge his client "is clearly in a better physical and mental position than he was when he started (drug treatment)," the Sun said.

Doherty pleaded guilty to a string of drug charges last month stemming from a Dec. 18, 2005, arrest. Thursday's hearing stemmed from an arrest Jan. 14, again in London.

The judge set a hearing for a review of Doherty's progress for May 31.
