Brooke Mueller

Back In Rehab

For 19th Time

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

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."

Testing positive to alcohol under probation will send one to rehab on the best of deals, so says a lawyer to be. ME,

I just love how celebrities run off to rehab as an excuse for bad behaviour.

Wonder where her kids were during this addy binge.. it's sad that they're probably just a paycheck to her. I hope she wakes up and gets clean for their sake...

I have no patience nor tolerance for addicts. Been through hell with my sister's addictions and after trying to help for so long I realized that it has to come from her. My sister lost her kids 10 yrs ago because of her addictions. The kids have been with us since.

At one point during Robert Downey Jr.'s troubles, an attorney made the argument that when an addict returns to rehab multiple times, its obvious THE REHAB APPROACH IS NOT WORKING. Eventually RDJ beat his addictions and we all love him now. Why not give this poor woman the benefit of the doubt, too? She needs a better program!

Adderall is a schedule 2 drug. To put it in perspective...so is cocaine. It is very addicting and widely abused.

What type of doc gives adderal to a coke addict? Add for adults is not a big problem. For unemployed rich adults its a drug. The doc should have us license revoked. The rehab center will jerk that med from her stat.

She's in competition with Lindsay Lohan to get the crown of most boring, predictable, useless mess on earth. Too bad in her case that kids are involved.

Sad on so many levels. At. The end of the day the kids are the ones who gets hurt..I feel like once u start popping out kids u should somewhat have urself together so the kids don't have to deal with ur mess..but u can't help someone that doesn't want to be help..rehab isn't working because celebs always go to to them 5 star rehabs where they r to distracted..I just really hope she gets it together

No really, who gives a stuff about parenting when you've got a full time nanny to do all of YOUR responsibilities. Dina Lohan might just not be the worst mother in the world.
