Brooke Mueller

I Also Bailed

On Betty Ford

EXCLUSIVE

There seems to be an exodus from Betty Ford ... because TMZ has learned Brooke Mueller has left the rehab facility for greener pastures.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Brooke has entered a rehab facility in Orange County.  As for why she left Betty Ford ... we're told Brooke and her people felt Betty Ford was good for "detoxing" ... but she needs a different place to reboot so she can go back home and attempt to lead a clean and sober life.

It's interesting ... Betty Ford has the reputation of being the Rolls-Royce of rehab, but it seems some patients think the facility's value is limited. 

We're told Brooke and her people think the O.C. facility will help her assimilate back into society -- something they didn't think Betty Ford could do.

We broke the story ... Lindsay Lohan also left Betty Ford because the judge and prosecutor, along with Lindsay, felt the program had value for 30 days, but not the full 90.

It's obvious to me that Lindsay and Brooke left Betty Ford because they can't do drugs at Betty Ford. Lindsay and Brooke both think they can do drugs AND rehab at the same time. Betty Ford ain't havin' it, so out go the biggest druggies in Hollywood.

Basically, Betty Ford won't allow them to use.

It would be hilarious if Betty Ford sued the judge and prosecutor got essentially saying their program sucks after 30 days.

Just the fact that the deranged Brooke is out anywhere is frightening and sad. Denise bulk up security we really don't know where she is.

Junkies think rehab is like sobriety, a nice to visit, but they don't want to live there.

And bull**** on the story TMZ "broke" about Lindsay. Bitch had SIX WEEKS to find an appropriate place, she didn't . Why did the court sign off on BF if it wasn't appropriate? Bull****. Bull****. Bull****.

Betty Ford is probably still cleaning the black handprints all over the walls.

Start banking your comments because in a few months both Brooke and LIndsay will be TMZ fodder, after Kim K delivers the anti-Christ, that is.

i.e.,---Betty Ford didn't let Lindsay have her Adderall, and they refuse to see Lindsay and Brooke as "special"!

Get yo facts straight    

Once again TMZ is contributing to the misconception of anything related to medical information. It really baffles me how much b.s. you guys put out onto the web; you really should be embarrassed. Booke and Lilo entered Betty Ford at approximately the same time, so it makes sense they would be leaving around the same time, because they have completed the services that BFC is licensed to provide. There can be varying degrees of what's called intensive levels of care for substance abuse cases...typically called inpatient, aka detox, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment...the category names may vary based on what state you're in, but each category offers different types of services, monitoring and programming. So, these 2 ladies (and I'm not a fan of either of them, by the way, I just can't stand for tabloids to contribute to misinformation) completed their treatment at Betty Ford and simply moved on to different facilities for different types of services. In other words, they completed their program at Betty Ford SUCCESSFULLY and were able to move on to the next part of their treatment. As much as I can't stand either one of them, they're making progress in their treatment and not just leaving the Betty Ford Clinic for the hell of it. Man, TMZ, get it right for a freaking change. Do your damn research instead of just making crap up just so you can put a story out there that grabs headlines.
