EXCLUSIVE

Selena Gomez ignored the advice of medical professionals and waltzed out of rehab just 14 days into a 6-week program ... over the strenuous objections of the rehab staff ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Selena tell us just after New Year's she checked into a program at The Meadows called DAWN  -- for alcohol, pot and Rx Ambien -- in addition to what her people believe is an unhealthy union with Justin Bieber.

But 2 weeks in, Selena bailed so she could go the Sundance Film Festival for her upcoming movie.  She told her people she would return to the rehab facility after Sundance, but when it was over Selena decided she was cured and there was no reason to return.

Problem is ...  that's not the way the medical staff at The Meadows sees it ... the treatment program is 45-days and Selena bailed four weeks early.  We're told the staff feels it's essential in any recovery to complete the therapy.

Selena is telling her people ... she completed the toughest week, which the facility calls "Survivor's week" so everything is fine.  Thing is ... Selena's not the doctor -- she's the one with the problem.

She slept with Bieber, that it itself must have taken a pound to forget those 19 seconds of Beiber bliss.

If she can keep clear of Bieber and lose the self-involved, entitled attitude, she might just be OK. Maybe.

Just quit. You don't need to pay these docs tons of money. Spoiled kids afraid of a little tough work. Always thinking you can just run off to rehab.

Give me a break...I while heartedly believe and rehab and the 12 step programs because I've seen it work for my ex of ten yrs. How ever...This is a girl whose lost her first love and has a broke heart and let's be honest, of course they want her to stay, she's a celeb and they are their to make money. She wasn't using hard core drugs yet so there is a great possibility she doesn't have an addiction problem. She just needed help dealing with the break up. With con 3rd and tour schedules I'm sure those people have a hard time sleeping on different time zones. Ambien is by far a med that needs banned though. If you are on it and you live with someone ask them to video you an hour after y out take it. You'll flush those pills so quick if you're smart. The need to he taken off the market. You don't even remember what you did the next day so people around you think you are crazy and it is literally just that one med. I've been dealing with cancer and that's the only med I have problems with.
