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.

Most people are extremely luck if they get a 2nd chance in life. She has had at least a dozen chances. She should be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. That is what she deserves. But because she was once once married to a celebrity, that makes her a rich celebrity so she will continue to get endless chances and be able to stay out of prison until one day she dies after overdosing on drugs and/or alcohol only to have the County Medical Examiner or Coroner to rule that she died of natural causes just like that guy Corey Haim or Heath Ledger of Amy Winehouse.

Seriously!    

Seriously, now she is worried about her kids. It is probably better that they don't see the events surrounding detox! That is just my "motherly" two cents.

Where are the Children's Welfare people? Why don't they intervene? Live at home rehab is a joke. You are still in the environment that supported your addiction in the first place.

People who are against the use, trafficking and consumption of drugs are prejudiced against Mexico, Columbia and Afghanistan who produce those drugs. Stop the prejudice! LOL

What I like about her is even though she's blitzed out of her mind on drugs and alcohol, she's still firing handguns at a gun range. What a great country! Did she fire a rocket launcher too while she was whacked out of her mind or is that against the right to bear arms?

All of a sudden her kids a priority?! Really?? How is it that she can get arrested so many times and she is still allowed to be around her kids? If it was anyone else, she would be locked up and CPS would've barred her from being around her kids. Disgusting crack head has the nerve to call herself a "mom".

IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK!!! Vegas won't take it. She needs a conservatorship so she can be placed in a locked facility so she won' wander off seeking drugs. Someone (her parents) needs to man-up and file for conservatorship.

If Brooke cared about her kids, she wouldn't be taking any drugs, and letting the Nannies raise her sons.

She is using her kids as excuse to don't stay in Rehab as inpatient. If she really cared about her kids, she wouldn't be messing around, she would take Rehab much more serious and get her act straight.
