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."

This is news? Of course she is admitting herself for drugs and alcohol. You don't check yourself into rehab for nothing.

Golly gee, what a surprise.

Houstons voice has been shot for years. Getting older has not had anything to do with it.

Booed, fans wanting their money back, cancelled concerts due to soar throats, whatever her PR came up with.

I don't think another tour will be set up anytime soon.

Whitney Houston is a legend. Instead of you haters putting her down, why don't you show her support? She VOLUNTARILY entered the program, so she WANTS to be clean and be careful. You guys will keep putting her down like you did with Michael Jackson the whole time he was alive and making jokes, and then once she's dead just like him, ONLY then you will be crying and say "Oh Whitney we love you you are the best we miss you". Idiots.

Where's her buddy Oprah when she needs her? Oh, that's right Oprah only gets involved when it benefits her and gets her that BIG interview.

Hey, Oprah, you have enough money...you could kidnap old Whitney here and hold her till she's clean, like the Scientologists do!

I really don't get how these celebrities let themselves get into situations like these. People in this world are struggling and they think their problems are bad. I mean I wish her the best of luck, but come on. Do something good w/your money and talent.

It is such a shame that she was a bad influence on Bobby Brown all those years. Now that she is out of the picture, Bobby is sober and Whitney is still smokin her crack. Her handlers, management and record label need to stop enabling her and covering up her addiction.

She once had the most amazing voice and looked stunning - I am mystified why anyone with talent, looks and money gets involved with drugs - Why even try it? It just seems so stupid to me.
Just had to express my 2 cents worth -

PEOPLE CAN PUT THE BLAME ON B.BROWN ALL THEY WANT WHITNEY IS A GROWN WOMAN SHE MAKES HER OWN CHOICES. ALL THE TIMES B.BROWN WASN'T CLEAN SHE COULD HAVE PACKED UP HER MILLION BAGS AND LEFT THE MARRIAGE LIKE SHE DID A FEW YEARS AGO. HE IS CLEAN, YET AND STILL SHE ISN'T. WHITNEY NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER OWN DRUG HABITS AND STOP PUTTING THE BLAME ON B.BROWN. EVERYONE ONE THOUGHT IT WAS HIM THAT WAS "MAKING" HER GO DOWN THE SPIRAL THAT SHE WAS GOING..UNTIL SHE DIVORCED HIM..THOUGHT SHE CAN RESURRECT HER CAREER BY A SIMPLE DIVORCE AND A FEW MONTHS IN REHAB..TAKE RESPONSIBILITY WHITNEY. YOU HAVE YOUR OWN DEMONS AND THEY DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING WITH B.BROWN.

Bobby Brown has nothing to do with his trainwreck. She was like that when they met. She's been a doper forever, just like her cousin the pot head Dionne Warwick.
