Brooke Mueller

I Also Bailed

On Betty Ford

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.

lots of theories on how to handle junkies ( anyone who is addicted to something that is killing htem)

sadly the Hollywood lifestyle is so decadent that I doubt anyone- from a star like Lindsey Lohan to a minor asteroid like Brooke can live there AND stay sober. LA and NY and Miami and most of the big cities are built around dining and boozing and parties and coke and booze. Very hard to go a party and not get your high going. and if you don't go then why are you in the business?
Robert Downy and Charlie Sheen and many others may think they are sober but they are only waiting their turn to fall again. watch and see.

If she bailed from Betty Ford it was because she could not handle the truth about herself! She will deny everything until she is ready or just reaches total bottom, and if losing your kids is not it, I guess the cemetery is her and final treatment.

Is Cliffside in Orange County? Is she following Lohan?

I hope they transferred her by medical transport. Otherwise she'd probably get high on her way to the new treatment facility.

"but it seems some patients think the facility's value is limited." THESE ARE THE SAME PATIENTS WHO CAN'T CONTROL THEIR DRUG USE AND THEY ARE JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE THAT THEY CAN GO FOR REHAB AND SKATE THRU TO SATISFY THE CRIMINAL COURT SYSTEM!
