TMZ broke the story ... Houston voluntarily enrolled in the program around 10 days ago.

Houston has admitted her problems with substance abuse in the past ... but TMZ has learned the demons have resurfaced.

A music industry source who was with Whitney two weeks ago tells us, "She was plastered and she was a mess."

O.K. HOW OLD is she now? Do you think this broad will clean up her act before:

1: Dies of an over dose? or

2: Dies of old age?

Sheesh, pull it together lady.

She's been a train wreck for years. She'll sober up for awhile and then return to what she knows.

She is a sad hopeless case. I thought once she and BB were done she would do so much better. He pulled her down, so I thought. I always blamed him, but it seems she is he own worst enemy now. Very sad. Such a beautiful voice at one time.

Sad how her life has turned out. She could have still been packing stadiums and having long stints in Vegas making ungodly amounts of money. Just look at Celine Dion, Cher, or Barbara Streisand. Unfortunately doping herself silly seemed like a better option to her.

She could have been one of the greats to be remembered for her wonderful voice. That will never be. She can thank Bobby Brown.

I wish her well in trying to clean up, yet again. If she doesn't, she is going to kill herself. The bottom line is this.....she made a choice to do the drugs and booze and she has to make the choice to get clean and stay clean.

Hang in there Whitney. It's a tough one, but you can do it. May be better if you went for an in house controled environment. However, unless you have broken some laws, this is America, and it's youe choice right now.

Metoric rise to fame then career goes down in flames. She was truely gifted. Fame in its self is a drug. Some can handle - some can't - she never could.
