Heather Locklear

Rehab Standoff With Family

1/18/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heather LocklearHeather Locklear is digging in her heels ... continuing to defy family members who are pleading with her to check into a rehab program.

Sources tell us Heather is recovering at home after a dangerous mixture of prescription pills and booze landed her in the ICU last week with intense stomach pains.  But family ... including Heather's parents ... are still pushing for her to get professional help.

As TMZ first reported -- Heather's family is pushing for her to get treatment at UCLA Medical Center.

So far, Heather's not budging.

TMZ has sources that are telling them about private conversations within the family? Really? TMZ, are you making this stuff up?

What's going on with Heather's face? She used to be so cute. Now her nose looks like MJ's and she has a deformed face from the plastic surgery.

Maybe Heather should think about what ended up happening to Amy Winehouse, the famous jazz singer. Amy didn't want to go to rehab either. Now she doesn't have ANY options anymore. She DIED from her addiction problems. Mixing booze and prescription drugs has killed a LOT of actresses and actors over the years you know.

Go to rehab for 4-6 months Heather! Come back looking good and feeling good like you were back in the 1980s on that show "Dynasty".

I don't understand the family on this one. How does publicly humiliating Heather help the situation? Shouldn't this be a private family matter?

If she truly is an addict, then TMZ needs to back off. Your endless stories will only make her dig her heels in more. Sometimes it's not just gossip, it's real life. Back off and give people their privacy.

Heather is NOT alright and obviously NOT in a position to make decisions for herself when she's that stupid. Anyone that mixes drugs and booze is playing Russian Roulette.

If she's a danger to herself or others, her parents along with a doctor and a judge can put her in rehab against her will.

Hopefully Heather will realize she desperately needs professional help before it's too late. But her landing in ICU didn't make her realize it, what will? Family needs to file for conservatorship, NOW!!!
