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.

Heather is a beautiful woman and fine actress. If she isn't ready or doesn't think she needs rehab, then that's that. Its her life and her decision. Most likely its all the drama with Jack Wagner that is making her turn to alcohol and pills. She should dump him and then go to back her therapist or get a better one. This whole thing is fixable. This past trip to the hospital gave her a wake up call, I'm sure. She'll get it together. She's a smart lady.

All the pushing in the world will make her want help. She will seek it when she hits rock bottom. Until then she will hide behind drinking and drugs, telling everyone "i'm fine, I got this"...Must be a powerful hurt she is holding onto to destroy herself in such a sad way.

Heather Locklear is in denial. She does not believe she has a drug problem even after cheating death. Drug addiction is a dangerous disease that can kill faster than cancer and it's so hard to treat.

I'm sure her family wants her to do the right thing.But ultimately, only she can make that call.

Some judge should order her to go, studies show with or without their agreement abusers can benefit from treatment. Sad a bottle or pills is more important than family or a nice guy who loved you. Get it together Heather, you are an example don't be the example of what not to do.

Hello Heather:
It has been awhile (just thinking how much I like this new laptop it is a HP)Since my last note to back in January 14th,2012. Was visiting Goudings Lodge in Monument Valley (the View looks like a nice place to visit also, Utah,Arizona border). Gouldings is where John Wayne , Clint Eastwood,Chayvie Chase film movies that we all will probably watch a few times in our lives.
I know TMZ here is somewhat smuttie at times (it Sales stuff)but it has given us a way to communicate to people like you and me.
Without fun laugh birds music sun moon and God given things where would any of us bee, oh ya did say bees.
My email and considerer myself as a kind gentle loving liken nature, and don't like seenin a Beautiful woman who has work as hard ,to do without good wholesome companionship. Hope your stomach doing better (that be a no on waiting for whatever TMZ audio boot-leg crap to download) and what GIRL would not want to be name Heather.
Thinking of You Stevoni
