Selena Gomez

Bailed On Rehab

2/6/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205-selena-gomez-meadows-getty
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.

This is a great program and great opportunity.

But they tell us (therapist) - we don't tell them.

Still, for Selena to go in at this early stage?

Is awesome.

The fourteen days will help her.

Give her something to think about.

My prediction is that she'll return for more.

In my beginning recovery?

A great A.A. sponsor (I've had three)?

Said come even if you're still drinking just don't be a jerk.

So early on I'd go to A.A. with three beers in me - gym.

Just to listen.

Then two.

Then one.

Then, viola, 90 days, a year, five years, ten years, etc.

But it's the INSIGHT we need.

The introspection of therapy - and I've had long-term.

Where our MINDS are changed - BY us.

Regarding the choices we make for ourselves.

My prediction is that Selena will become a role model.

Help this great establishment and DAWN program.

Hopefully the pics TMZ keeps posting is good for her and her friends to bust up over on what a loser he is. Eventually she will wonder what did I see in him. For anyone calling her a loser, aren't we all?

They smoke some pot, get drunk at parties, then go to a spa for two weeks - and then they'll cry to the cameras about rehab. Attention seeking, weak losers.

This served it's purpose...got her name in the headlines for another week. This "woman" is only relevant when she's hanging around JB...and she knows it. Rehab is a joke...

I am familiar with the Meadows and can confirm a few things; one, they are heavily oriented toward self-renewal type therapy than substance abuse, second, they are all about making money so no surprise that they would leak this info, including recommendations for more time ($dollars$) for Selena or anyone for that matter, three, two weeks is about the right amount of time to gain some rejuvenation value without getting pulled too far down the rabbit hole given that there focus is breaking you down and identifying whats wrong with you that they can offer to fix, for a price.

I admire Selena for taking time out for herself and engaging in some self-analysis and I admire her for knowing when to move on both in regard to Bieber and the Meadows. Rock on Selena
