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.

Looks like we'll be on hospital watch with Locklear and JOHN EDWARDS with his life threatening heart condition and surgery to follow.

Nah, family. Just back off and let her kill herself. She's just one more over-indulged, spoiled celebrity who obviously hasn't hit rock bottom in her own mind - what's left of it. No synpathy here for sure.

Star Whackers say, "Whack, whack, whack - get the job done!!!"

Heather must have taken more Xanax than prescribed. Good luck to her getting benzo tranquilizers anytime soon.

Look at those pictures of her at the Laker game. She looks a MESS! I'm cringing just looking at them and I'm totally embrassed for her and especially for her daughter. What teen wants to see her mother looking like this out in public? Can you imagine what she does in private if she behaves like this in public?
I hope Heather gets the help she needs and REAL help. Not some Mickey Mouse Dr. Drew exploiting her on Celebrity Rehab. I hope she finds a doctor who treats her like a regular person and not some coddled celebrity. Heather is unhappy because she is not living a real, true, authentic life, which I guess is hard to do if you are wrapped up in the Hollywood lifestyle.

I am so sick of these celebrities and their addictions! This woman has a beautiful young daughter and what a BAD example she is as a Mother. In this case, the Father is a mess too. What are the chances Ava turns out to be a high functioning, normal, intelligent young woman?

I've thought Heather Locklear was super hot for a long time. She used to be married to Tommy Lee, the drummer from Motley Crue (before Pamela Anderson). She also was married to Richie Sambora, the guitarist for Bon Jovi.

After the badboys like Tommy Lee she's been married to (who probably cheated on her bigtime), I don't understand why she would be so depressed and drinking and popping pills over her latest guy Jack Wagner. Heather always seems like a pretty tough woman to me.

It's gotta be the prescription drugs. She's probably addicted to those painkillers like oxycontin. Those painkillers seem to be very popular in Hollywood.

Just because YOUR DOCTOR gives them to you, doesn't mean they won't mess your life up or kill you. Some of these doctors are no better than street drug dealers. You should hear about all "pill mills" they have had in Florida. Addicts just line up outside to get their "fix".

Her family needs to report the physicians that are supplying her with the controlled medications to the California board of medicine and the DEA.

I really hope she can turn this around. It's sad that Heather will be remembered for this. I remember seeing her on TV when she was in her early 20's and always thought she was a knockout- even today. Booze and drugs have trashed so many- just never thought she would be one. Hugs to you Heather! JG
