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.

It's a legal maneuver. strictly for appearances. She cracked a few bottles of champagne on that flight, and she'll be snorting rails off her kid's lunchbox in no time ha ha.

Getting her on the plane was easy. Dumping her in the middle of the Pacific Ocean... that was a different story.

Good for you Brooke. Hopefully you will get it this time. You are Blessed with money why not really enjoy being present for life and enjoy watching your boys grow up. If you can stay clean for aleast 6 mo. you will really see how wonderful life is without drugs. You havent been clean long enough to feel the benifits.

A rep? An entourage? A private jet? Glad to see all that child support money Chuckles is paying her is going for a good cause.

TMZ, why do you treat this chick as a celebrity. I know she was married to Charlie but seriously noone gives 2 sh*ts about her.

It really is pathetic that this rich woman, who doesn't work, and has a full-time nanny cannot get it together. Why is she still allowed to be around those kids?

No conservatorship, she'll walk. Vegas won't take it that she'll stay in rehab. I tell you, she needs to be under a conservatorship or she walks. Her urge for drugs is stronger than her will to stay in rehab.

So when is she ever with her kids? All I see is her at pawn shops, nightclubs, restuarants, Aspen, Vegas, etc. having a good old time. Nothing different in the childrens routine- as they are being raised by a nanny as their mother romps around like a common junkie - tramp.

I doubt her sincerity; I suspect that it is a strategic choice. However, I hope that I am wrong and that she is serious about doing the needed work.

She won't stay, she can't cut it. Being rescued is all part of her addiction "drama". To hell with the kids?
