Trace Adkins

Happy Trails, Rehab

Trace Adkins beat a hasty retreat from rehab -- just 14 days after he entered the Florida facility for alcoholism ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to Trace tell TMZ ... the country star's father is seriously ill and he felt he needed to be at his bedside ... immediately.

We're told when the illness resolves itself ... Trace will then decide if he goes back to an inpatient program or does outpatient therapy.

As for his immediate sobriety, we're told Trace asked his therapists in Florida to put him in contact with counselors near his dad.

TMZ broke the story ... a drunken Trace got into a fight with a Trace Adkins impersonator on a country cruise and promptly checked himself into a treatment facility.

White and Asian dudes will believe you.

When you tell them the eggs are real.

Or at least pretend to.

Trace Adkins is one of the good guys. You ought to let him reconnect his life

With putting three friends through rehab and two falling back multiple times. alcohol is a bitch.

I even asked one friend after his 2nd stint going on 3, "any body else done multiple times. Yes, Any easier. Hell no. He took the cure that time. Well for now!

Its a beast and a monster for some. Support him. He's already been exposed for his stupid moment.

He's probably harder on himself than we could be on him. Alcoholics don't like relapse no matter how long its been

Unless his dad is near death, its just an excuse. If not his dad, Adkins would have found another "emergency".

Sounds trite but they lock/alarm/monitor...

All the doors in rehab.

4-6 days of paperwork.

AFTER you say lemme out.

Figure Trace put his request in like last Thurs morning.

Makes SENSE he'd need a drink by now.

If you could sneak down/out via a back stairwell?

There'd be nobody THERE.

Half the STAFF'd be gone.

Note to self... If I ever go to rehab, take a two month supply of babes, drugs and booze along.

For all the skeptics criticizing Trace, maybe you will feel better knowing his dad passed away yesterday. He was given a week to live, which is why Trace left rehab. Maybe instead of bad mouthing someone going through a horrible situation, you could be human and show some compassion.
