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.

Something new?? Correct me if I am wrong (now that's asking for it!), but didn't she already do a "homebound" rehab earlier this year??

This broad is such a tramp...I wouldn't do this thing with Charlie's coke wiener, nothing but an everyday coke ho and nothing more. Shows what kind of judgement Sheen has. NONE.

It could work with outpatient rehab - in the middle of the Canadian wilderness.

It is Calfornia. IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK in a environment where even the workers down in the supermarket need a huge drug ****tail to handle the stress.

Move Charlie. Move Broke. Move the children. Move the entire family out of LA. It is their only hope.

BROOKE AND FAMILY R STILL IN DENIAL. BE WITH HER KIDS IS JUST A BIG EXCUSE. WERE HER KIDS WITH HER IN COLORADO AT THE BAR FIGHT? HER KIDS NEED A BREAK FROM THE DRAMA. THEY WILL CARRY THE SCARS OF THIS BS. KEEP BROOKE HAPPY AT ALL COSTS! THROW THE MONEY FOR REHAB OUT THE WINDOW SAME EFFECT.

Right now the only thing Brooke cares about is how to get drugs. If she was sober, she'd care about her kids. One thing for certain, DO NOT LEAVE BROOKE ALONE WITH HER KIDS. Heck, don't leave Brooke alone by herself!!!!

What's with the hard on TMZ has for this Brooke chick. Oh yea, she's an actor's ex wife. She's not exactly what you call even marginal news, let alone worthy of being splattered over TMZ consistently. Geez! I entered the comment section to say BORING !!!

I agree with those that say those two boys are paycheck 1 and paycheck 2. That's all they are to her. She hit the jackpot when she popped out Charlie Sheen's kid x 2. Now she has to do everything in her power to keep them so the checks don't stop. Yep, we see where her priorities lie.

1) "Would you rather your kids develop horrific memories and neuroses from which they will be in recovery from FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES....if they make it that long", or;
2) "Would you rather begin to show them unconditional love by acknowledging they need a break from your chaos, so that you can heal for yourself and them"

it's very simple, everyone. if you want to party and take drugs, then don't have children. i'm 34, unmarried, and never having children. if i want to use an oz of coke some weekend, nobody can tell me not to.

Brooke is definately NOT a bad person, She just moved up the social latter, becoming well known, even richer, and drawing a lot of attention to herself. And now what - she is young and it is definately hard for a lady or a girl in her situation to manage a turn around. Obviously she should take a break and think about what she really wants to do in her life. That is a BIG STEP - guess she still is having too much fun and enjoying life - if her lifestyle should ever deteriorate under her way of living - I am sure that she would take the necesary steps immediately. She's strong and a fighter and just taking a ride on having fun. So what? Isn't that exactly what people get turned on by? And why should she be completely different and turn totally conservative? C'mon - that's hypocricy
