Tanning Mom

Enters Rehab

For Booze

6/22/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Detox and rehab is a big money making business. They call you an alcoholic if you have a drink every day or more than two at a time. Nearly everyone who drinks is an alcoholic then. They probably brainwashed her when they put her in the detox. They probably made her think she has some kind of major problem.

What they do when they get you locked up is tell you that the only way you can get better is to admit that you have a problem. That is the first step in the neuro linguistic programming. Then they make you follow all of their orders and give you privliges the more you go along with whatever they tell you to do or say about you.

It is Nazi mind control. I think she is they type who seems like she had twenty drinks when she only had a couple because she is already wild and already brain damaged.
