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.

She's waiting for Celebrity Rehab to come calling. That's going to be a long wait.

Perhaps the family should have gotten together and removed her from the unhealthy situation she has lived in along time ago. Say since birth. Who knows perhaps a little incentive as in you want your daughter back you clean up might have helped Whitney out.

The kid is 18 and has had problems since she was what 14. Who stands by and does nothing when they see that. Someone whose worried the gravy train will come to and end? It's sort of sad, the kid who should have had everything had nothing.

According to showbiz411 - TMZ is paying so-called "family" members for this information, so there's an incentive there for "family" to give uncredible information about Whitney & family.

I hope that Bobbi Krisina is already seeking counseling to help her try to deal with her mothers sudden death. From what I've seen they were very close and losing her mother so suddenly I hope she doesn't try to self medicate. I think she's a beautiful young lady and wish her only the best.

This bothers me "Attempts to reach Bobbi directly were unsuccessful." Why would you attempt to contact her about that during this time??

She'll be dead of an OD by 30. Or an automobile accident. She WAS TAUGHT how to smoke crack by the 2 degenerate/criminal parents. Just because their names are Houston and Brown does not mean they get off free from CRIMINAL CHILD ENDANGERMENT.Oopsw ..they already dis.
When you have zero education and zero intelectual development
as you age there is nothing in this world for you except dope..for a dope.
But then again the entire Brown criminal gang and all their friends and children think that sort of life is fine.
If the sort of dope use happened with the family across the street and giving their kids dope the police would be taking the children away.
