Brooke Mueller

Checks in to

Full-Time Rehab

Brooke Mueller
has had a change of heart ... and has checked herself in to a full-time rehab center  ... TMZ has learned.

Mueller's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ, "After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction."

"She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment. Brooke’s goal is to maintain her sobriety and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal."

“Brooke will retain custody of the children, who will remain in their home and familiar surroundings and be under the care of their longtime nanny. Charlie and Brooke’s parents fully support her decision and everyone recognizes the importance of maintaining the children's normal routine."

Brooke had previously decided she would enter an outpatient rehab program to be with her kids -- so much for that.

Brooke was seen boarding a private jet in Los Angeles last night ... presumably headed for her rehab center. Mueller was seen smiling and chatting with her entourage before getting on board.

No word on where the rehab center is located.

So does this mean she's admitting to the most recent drug possession charges? Kind of looks that way to me.

The Aspen DA won't give her a plea deal so she's going to pretend to check into rehab until after Dec 19th lol

Am sure the children will be surrounded by the love of family and not just the nanny. Any situation is better than the alternative, yes??

Can someone please tell me why this "non-friggin-celeb" feels she needs a "rep"?

NEWSFLASH Brooke - you are not a celeb like Denise was, you are just a unknown (until your recent drama in the past year) junkie that happened to hit the jackpot and marry a very famous junky celeb. Give it up, nobody really cares about getting your picture until you run from a camera, and that's just because you give others something to laugh about, or at least a reason to feel better about our lives, by watching you ruin yours!

Step off bitch, you are not a celeb and you're wasting your money by even paying for one....

help this young woman    

So was it Wonderland, Promises, Cirque Lodge, UCLA, or Betty Ford? They all seem to have wonderful success rates since 2007.

Why do folks believe that rehab works on people who really don't want to participate but do so to get court/cops/family off their backs?

What's the point? I don't think she really wants sobriety and if she doesn't, she won't get it.

She's just playing the game. Go to full time rehab and maybe the judge won't haul her azz down to court.
