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.

Maybe Mel Gibson could try to help her too !!

Maybe the Mel haters will not think highly of Mel for trying to help her, but God will.

I hope her mother's passing will give BK the right direction and make her more determined not to travel her mother's path but instead to make her mother proud. Because she was born to 2 addicts does not make her an addict. I'm the daughter of 2 drunks, and I don't drink. God touch this little girl's heart and soul and lead her down a road of happiness.

Why blame TMZ, this story is all over the tabloids. Blame the family, they blabbed to every Tom, ****, and Harry.

By the way, Whitney Houston was a used up old addict, a has-been, but death was a great career move. Just like it was for the other has-beens the likes of Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Amy Winehouse.

God must be so damn proud of your lame stupid azz.
Death is never seen as a great career move. What a freaking stupid azz thing to say.

Hey, dumbazz! Hell is hiring !! This could be a great career move for you!!!

OK Everyone. Chill out. TMZ please be kind. It would help everyone, all of us human beings who love Whitney Houston and have compassion for her family. OK? Thanks.

NOW....THIS IS MY OPINION. PLEASE HEAR ME. IF people who are on illegal drugs have a problem and they go to rehab, what do you think they do to them in rehab??? HELLO!!!

In rehab, the psychiatrists put them on prescription drugs, pharmaceutical trash that has numerous side effects that are worse than the illegal drugs. LOOK at what Whitney Houston was taking. Xanax...check out the side effects of that, please.

So, this is what I suggest besides PRAYER, emotional support and love. Bobbi must go through the grieving process and it can take a year folks!! That was her mom who died, a woman she loved deeply and was very close to. I wish that I had been that close to my mom.

BOBBI CHRISTINA SHOULD GO TO A NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR AND A CHRISTIAN COUNSELOR SHE CAN TALK TO WHO WILL NOT PUT HER ON DRUGS!!!! NO PRESCRIPTION DRUGS!! THEY COULD MAGNIFY THE PROBLEMS.

ALSO, PLEASE, PLEASE GO TO www.cchr.org and watch the videos for yourself. Please get this information to her family NOW!!

There are wonderful naturopaths....doctors of natural medicine who can give her vitamins and stuff that will heal her naturally along with a good diet and someone compassionate to talk to.

God bless you and GOD BLESS CISSY HOUSTON AND BOBBI CHRISTINA. I USED TO SEE CISSY HOUSTON SING AT MIKELL'S IN NYC YEARS AGO.

SHALOM.

In the last three or four years that she has abused substances has she been to rehab at all? If her mom was doing better why didn't she take bk herself. Or maybe her father should have taken her. After all, these parents knew the signs of someone who was using.

SERIOUSLY TMZ... YOU'RE DISGUSTING!!!

LEAVE THIS GIRL AND HER BUSINESS ALONE. IT'S ONE THING TO REPORT ON ADULTS ACTING BADLY, IT'S ANOTHER TO PUT THE BUSINESS OF A TEENAGER STRUGGLING WITH THE TRAGIC LOSS OF HER MOTHER!!!

YOU PEOPLE REALLY ARE OF THE LOWEST QUALITY OUT THERE.

Dad was/is a drug/alcohol user.

Mother was a drug/alcohol user.

18 y/o Daughter was/is a drug/alcohol user for years now with millions of dollars with no self control.

Somebody should start writing her eulogy now.
