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.

Well she had such outstanding role models in her parents now didn't she. If the parents can't clean up their acts for their kid, that's pathetic. But yet so many people idolize them, which is worse.

Hate to say it but she grew up in a drug/alcohol infested lifestyle. The Houston's have to be brain dead or in denial to see why the daughter would follow in her parents footsteps. I can only imagine the childhood this poor gal had. Sad

If they aren't already, I hope that famous actresses Demi Moore and Heather Locklear are going to rehab ASAP too. Both of them are about Whitney's age.

About a month ago, Heather Locklear mixed a lot of booze with Xanax like Whitney did. If her sister didn't call 911, Heather might be dead and in her coffin just like Whitney is.

Demi Moore was apparently abusing all sorts of drugs after her divorce from Ashton Kutcher ... Red Bull, prescription drugs, whippets, probably weed and cocaine, that stuff Miley Cyrus smoked called salvia, etc.

On the 911 call, someone said she smoked some "mystery substance" and then she started shaking and having convulsions. She might have had a stroke and died. Who knows. You can die from doing this stuff at any age, but your body just can't process all the drugs and booze as well as young people ... so it can do more damage.

This poor girl is burying her mom today. Leave her the hell alone. I understand your business is getting celebrity gossip but she should be off limits. Let her get through her mourning and struggles privately. She's gone and going through enough.

What is the family supposed to do? Here's a mother who was drug addicted, a choice she herself decided to make. Now, the daughter has the same problem, you see a pattern here? The only thing that can be done is for the family to get their daughter into a place where she can get help. Hopefully, Whitney's daughter will not make the same mistakes her mother did, but it maybe too late. Ignoring the problem won't make it go away. Americans are good at ignoring problems.

This girl, 18, is about to inehrit tens of millions o0f do0llars.
Whitney lost a lot of money over the past 10-15 years.
Still, there are millions left. Now, there will be millions to come.

This little girl is already on the wrong path.
She needs her grandmother to live with her.
She needs to have her inheirtnace held back until 25 with a small allowance of, say, $100,000.oo a year to live on.
She needs rehab followed by counseling.
She needs God.
She needs to see , look at, visit, the less fortunate by volunteering in homeless shelters, abused women's shelters, to see how fortunate she is that wehn her shift is over, she can go back to warm, safe, comfy home with verything there for comforts and good food, clothes.
She needs to enroll in school for 2years to gorw up. experience the college experience.
Mature. Be somewhere to mature.
May God Bless this girl. I give her sympathy now, but , me, after awhile, no sympathy or sad stories 5 yrs. from now.

This is a really irresponsible post. You have sensitive information that the girls family is waiting til the right time to give her and instead of letting them do that you are actively trying to sabotage the families efforts to keep a vulnerable teenage girl safe and well. Thats assuming its true of course - if its false then you're smearing the reputation of a grieving daughter based on hearsay and an emotional collapse at her mothers sudden death. This should not have been posted.
