Heather Locklear

Family Wants Her in Rehab

.... Again

1/13/2012 10:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heather Locklear
Heather Locklear's family wants her to check in to a medical rehab facility as soon as she's released from the hospital ... but Heather is resisting ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected with Heather's family tell TMZ ... yesterday was not an isolated incident.  Heather has been struggling with prescription drugs for a long time.  In fact, sources say Heather checked in to an L.A. area rehab facility last October and stayed 2 weeks.

We're told Heather's family wants her to go to a medical facility this time around -- not a rehab center.

But so far ... Heather is resisting.

As we first reported, Heather's sister called 911 Thursday just after 2 PM PT and said she had taken a dangerous mixture of prescription drugs and alcohol.  She was hospitalized in serious condition. 

Heather is currently in the ICU of the hospital in stable condition -- and earlier today, she got a visit from her sister.

fool. If she wouldn't have drank then she prolly would have been fine. Alcohol is the most dangerous drug out there, especially with other drugs.

All these articles about Heather Locklear (hope she gets well soon) and nothing about Lammy Odom and the strippers or NY Post and Fox reporting that the Kardashian empire is crashing. Interesting...all quiet at TMZ on the Ks.

Enough of this. Let her OD dead. A few days of media mourning and on to the next loser.

People can't find employment and these self-absorbed parasites with more opportunities than they deserve are taking up oxygen others could use.

B O Y C O T T everything and anything KARDASHIAN seems to be a solid voice in the correct direction. SEARS, OPI nail polish and others associated with KARDASHIANS seem to have heard the UPROAR when consumers spoke with their CASH!

Time to CELEBRATE the worthy not the WORTHLESS.

I always loved Heather Locklear. Not only a beautiful woman, but a pretty damn good actor in her own right. I wish her all the best while she tries to get detoxed.

How many times has this happened with her again? And their poor daughter- both she and the ex have issues w substance abuse. I really think it's that she's over 40 and it's gotta be hard to be the sexy, hot girl that gets older that can't get roles- i.e. Pamela Anderson. If you look like Kathy Bates, nothing lost, but it's gotta be hard to be the hottie getting older. Bet she just can't deal with it. WE never heard this about her at the height of career.
