Bobbi Kristina

Family Wants Rehab ASAP

2/18/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Houston family wants Bobbi Kristina to enter a live-in rehab facility ASAP.
Whitney Houston
's family wants Bobbi Kristina to enter a live-in rehab facility ASAP -- but sources tell TMZ, they're holding off on telling her until after Whitney's funeral today.

According to sources connected with the family, Bobbi has struggled with substance abuse issues for the last three or four years -- and the family wants her to seek out professional help at a 60-day live-in treatment facility before her problems get worse.

We're told the family is aware Whitney fell off the wagon in the weeks leading to her death -- and they don't want the same fate to befall her daughter.

But they're not putting pressure on her to enter rehab right away -- they want to give her time to grieve during and immediately after her mother's funeral today.

Attempts to reach Bobbi directly were unsuccessful. So far, it's unclear if Bobbi plans to heed her family's advice.

I hope this doesn't turn out like the Anna Nicole Smith story, both dying from sadness and drug overdoses because of it. May God be with her and lead her in the right path.

Not Cool, TMZ. But such are the perils of fame. People treat you like you're not human.
I hope this girl gets direction in her life and strong boundaries set by those close to her. I always worried about her growing up in the environment she did. But at this point, she's been raised by two addicts. It looks like her father cleaned himself up...poor Whitney. Say what you will about addicts, but they truly suffer. Not sure why some make it, and some don't. The worst, the WORST, thing that could happen to this girl is if she were to get alot of money handed over to her. I believe that's what did her mother in. Addicts and money are a deadly combination. God bless, Bobbi Kristi.

She's an addict and need to go to rehab right way. It would be so easy for someone in her emotional to take too many pills or stick a needle in arm. She doesn't people enabling her disease or ignoring it like they did her mother, because if they do, she will be lucky to make it to her 21st birthday. If they have to man up and commit her for her own good. Families all over America has had to do the same thing, to save a family member. The longer they wait the more she's going to fight them and make excuses why she can't go.

Rehab and counseling are great, but I would definately say do not leave out, Jesus Christ God Jehovah, the Holy Spirit, church, prayer, and family. Greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world. Lets come together in prayer for Bobbi Kristina and the Houston famly, but lets come together for each other.

Usually, TMZ is pretty cool, but why in the &)*() is this story that important that you would try to contact her directly about this on the weekend of her mother's funeral? That tasteless, heartless and just wrong. Put a fragile individual in more duress jus to get a scoop??

Bobb Kristna better get herself together now, or she will be headed to destruction. Most kids follow in their parents foot steps. We all need to pray for her.
