Brooke Mueller

Checks in to

Full-Time Rehab

12/13/2011 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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- will she still be getting her $55,000 a month child support check - even when she is sitting in the rehab facility?

She only decided to check into rehab after the court in Aspen said they were not going to cut a deal with her. I guess she figured that out-patient jazz would not cut it. She's nothing but a low-life druggie, who will never get better! She sucks! I hurt for her children. 2 druggie parents!

You just know she went someplace like Promises - the biggest joke of a rehab center ever. Sadly, there is no hope for this woman. She'll always love the crack rock more than her children.

After Charlie attempted to ridicule the Aspen authorities for arresting her and now the prosecutor saying "No deal" to Brooke's charges this is probably her best option.

In other words, she was DENIED a plea deal for her latest FELONY cocaine posession case, and figures committing to in-patient rehab will look better to the judge.

"She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment.".......LOL...the only reason we know about these updates is because her rep keep sending them to TMZ and they print them. Maybe her rep should be the one to respect her privacy and stop sending out these updates.

IMO Brooke is doing rehab full time so the judge will think she's really trying and not send her ass to jail and how is she keeping full custody of the boys when she's a crackhead, in rehab and facing a court date for being in possession of drugs with the intent to sell among other charges?

Who is she kidding.

Guess the Aspen Police being nothing but Keystone Kops on their finest day (Charlie Sheens words and big mouth) couldn't care less about her current pulling the rehab stunt again. Mueller is to show up in court on the 19th for her charges.

these comments are so harsh. substance abuse is a ball and chain. I believe that brooke does not want to be addicted to drugs. maybe i'm an apologist but i've experienced that ball and chain and wish her luck freeing herself from it. i feel for you brooke. it's a choice one must make on their own in order to be successful. don't be ashamed of trying to get sober! don't be ashamed of asking for help!
