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.

Its too bad that Heather got hooked on prescription drugs and booze. Most people would be better off if they just took a little marijuana to smooth out the edges. Nobody dies, and cannabis helps reduce pain, calms you down, and ups your mood.
I have back pain and medical marijuana does help. Instead of medicating with opiates, booze, or other harmful drugs, medical marijuana taken in edibles really works for me and many others.
Great e-book on medical marijuana: MARIJUANA - Guide to Buying, Growing, Harvesting, and Making Medical Marijuana Oil and Delicious Candies to Treat Pain and Ailments by Mary Bendis, Second Edition. This book has great recipes for easy marijuana oil, delicious Cannabis Chocolates, and tasty Dragon Teeth Mints. goo.gl/iYjPn goo.gl/Jfs61

I just don't understand what people get out of being mean about other people that they don't even know at all. This woman is obviously in trouble with prescription drugs and alcohol and needs to get help from somewhere. I don't believe rehab's and detox's are the place to find sobriety. They are controlled environments where anyone can stop drinking and drugging. The person has to be able to do it their real lives, in real time.
I hope that her doctor's avail themselves to reading these stories and stop prescribing the medications that she seems to be abusing. And mixing alcohol with any drugs is always a dangerous proposition. She needs support for sure, and I hope she gets it from other's who have been there, done that.

I have no idea what prescriptions she's getting from a doctor and whether she needs those drugs or not, but she's playing a very dangerous game with her life if she thinks taking those drugs and then topping it off with booze is safe. I seriously hope that her doctors that are prescribing to her are prescribing medications that she really needs and not just another celebrity doctor shopping or pill shopping to get high. If that's the case that doctor should be ashamed of themselves. How many celebrities have died in recent years from prescription medications that they never needed in the first place, but because they are celebrities doctors are willing to write those prescriptions. I can tell you this much, Dr. Murray isn't the only doctor out there catering to these celebrities and risking their lives. They take an oath to do no harm, but then they prescribe unnecesary drugs to the celebrity patient because, well because they are celebrities. Scary stuff going on out on the West Coast. I wonder how many more people need to die before the DEA really does its job and find those doctors, flush them out, and take their licenses to practice medicine away. Not just the West Coast either, the entire country is plaqued by these prescriptions drugs by greedy doctors.
