Tanning Mom

Enters Rehab

For Booze

EXCLUSIVE

0621-tanning-mom-michael-lohan-tmz
45-year-old Tanning Mom has entered rehab for alcohol abuse, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Patricia Krentcil -- who famously faced child endangerment charges last year after allegedly putting her 5-year-old in a tanning booth -- tell us she entered Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Thursday night.

We're told Tanning Mom realized she had hit rock bottom after she was placed in detox for 30 hours at an airport in Minneapolis last week ... for being way too drunk to fly.

Of course, TM has had a few public drunken incidents -- last August she was a wasted, stumbling, panty-flashing mess at a gay nightclub in NYC. 'Memba that? So it's not a huge surprise.

As for why she ended up at Lukens -- a rehab center endorsed by Michael Lohan -- we're told TM reached out to Michael about treatment because the two went to high school together ... and she heard Michael mention Lukens' unique treatment and success in a recent interview.

Krentcil will remain in treatment for 30 days.

This woman does anything for attention, after she hit the news last year she does what ever she can to show up on tv/internet again. That is her real addiction. Fame. no mater good or bad.

BTW did anyone bother telling either one of these idiots that it would be chronologically impossible for them to have gone to high school together before they came up with this asinine story?

Is it a mere coincidence that the trainwreck is carrying a shopping bag with a pic of a train?

From the Lukens website.............they just don't take anybody into their program lol

Admission to our program is selective; we do not accept clients simply because they can afford to pay and express a desire to come here (or someone else wants them to). Participants must be physically and emotionally able to handle the intense interactions and emotions that emerge in the Core Issue groups and in individual therapy sessions. They must also be able to adhere to basic house rules. These include sobriety and curfews. All applicants are required to have a pre-admission interview with one of our clinicians via telephone, Skype, or in our outpatient office to determine eligibility.
