Brooke Mueller

Choosing Outpatient Drug Rehab

to Stay with Kids

12/12/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller
is trying something different for her umpteenth attempt at drug rehab ... a rigorous outpatient treatment that will require random drug testing, and -- for better or worse -- will allow her to continue spending time with her children.

Brooke's rep Steve Honig says she will be going to a facility for treatment during the day, and when she leaves the facility she will remain "under expert supervision 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week."

In addition, Honig says ... "Brooke has requested to be tested on a daily basis for cocaine and other illegal substances so there is no doubt as to her commitment."

Brooke -- who was arrested for cocaine possession in Aspen on December 3 -- has been in and out of inpatient programs for years. Her rep says she wanted a different approach this time ... and she wanted to maintain a normal routine for Bob and Max ... her children with Charlie Sheen.

As TMZ first reported, Charlie will not take custody of the boys -- and we're told he's on board with Brooke's choice to try the outpatient program.

she's been in and out of inpatient programs for years because dumba55 doesn't know to even try to quit you need to do a minimum of 6mos to a year. And another 6 with supervision. If you want to stand a chance.

Sounds like a GREAT idea. NOT! Will someone please lock this drug head up before she kills her kids in a car accident, house fire, etc... And take Charlie too.

You know, people just need to leave this crackhead alone so she can OD and we can be done with all this repetitive drama.

How very amusing...any other time she doesn't give a flying rip about her kids..leaves them with her parents or babysitters. She is totally going on my 2012 Celebrity Death Pool list.

She needs at least a year of INTENSE treatment in a drug rehab facility. Not an at home babysitter for herself

What a joke!! She is a joke. I guess in her selfish head this all makes perfect sense. Poor kids. It's saying something when Charlie is a better parent. But lets face it her parents are the ones raising her kids. She and Charlie should both be ashamed.

Wow! She wants to do outpatient treatment in order to spend time with her kids? That would certainly be a change. and of COURSE in HER mind, her children need their stoner mother around for...what? an example of how to live a quality life, be a positive, contributing member of society? Bahahahaha!

She is only doing this because she is paranoid (partially drug related?) of possibly losing custody/money. Until she chooses to focus ONE HUNDRED PERCENT on recovery for an extended period of time she will continue to hurt herself and those she "thinks" she cares about....incredibly sad

She puts on the act of "the kids are so important and she wants to be with them " but she leaves them with a nanny or babysitter so she can go clubbing. That's not being with your kids. She is a waste. Charlie doesn't need her parents helping with the kids. He has his own family. Her parents did a crappy job with her so why chance them with the kids now.
