Brooke Mueller

Back In Rehab

For 19th Time

12/11/2012 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1210-brooke-mueller-tmz
Brooke Mueller is back in familiar territory -- rehab -- because she now confesses she has a big problem with a powerful drug.

Sources close to Brooke tell TMZ ... Charlie Sheen's ex-wife #3 says she has addiction issues with Adderall -- a psycho-stimulant commonly used for ADD.

TMZ broke the story ... an unresponsive Brooke was rushed to the hospital last week after OD'ing on drugs.  Brooke is privately acknowledging she took way too many Adderall pills and it put her in the danger zone.

Brooke --who checked into rehab tonight -- won't bump into any walls in the middle of the night because she knows the  facility very well -- she's been there before. She'll be living there for an undetermined period of time.

Brooke's attorney, Yale Galanter, tells TMZ, "Brooke was uncomfortable with the way Adderall was making her behave." 

Galanter also insists Brooke had no illegal drugs in her system when she OD'd last week. 

Brooke is on probation in Aspen and she is prohibited from consuming alcohol, but Galanter tells us he's confident the low low level of alcohol in her bloodstream would not result in a probation violation.

Galanter adds, "Brooke continues her lifelong battle with drug addiction by taking these steps herself to prevent a further drug relapse."

Okay, I know addiction is REAL, although I've never been addicted to drugs/alcohol, but I NEED my smokes and my coffee.....but for phuks sake, rehab 19 TIMES?!?!? You seriously HAVE to be kidding right? I'm surprised the washed-up druggie isn't dead by now. If you CAN'T kick it by the 19th time, I'm SORRY but you WILL be a druggie/drinker the rest of your life.....and then you will die from it. Period.

What I want to know: If Brooke has been to rehab, well over a dozen times for cocaine, what QUACK is writing her a prescription for adderall?? You can't give a cocaine addict legal access to a stimulant and then be surprised when they abuse it!

"She had no illegal drugs in her system at the time she OD'd" AKA lawyer spin....UMMM, here's some legal advice....Adderall is illegal if you do not have a prescription....

PLEASE STOP wasting precious rehab resources on this woman. No one has time or interest to babysit this woman while she makes up her mind. If she chooses an addictive life, its her choice. Leave her alone until its time to bury her.

Didn't TMZ say she was in rehab 15 times a few days ago? 15, 19 ... either way, it's obviously not working.


I guess her lawyer told her to do this because of the possible probation violation. Do her kids even know she's her mother?

Maybe they should examine her paint-sniffing addiction, because she is clearly taking it in through skin absorbtion.
