Selena Gomez

Bailed On Rehab

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

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.

I did 30 days in 1991. I remember all the folks there - about half of them- convinced they were "all better" and needed to leave early for whatever reason. As you can imagine, these were the ones the facilitators had the hardest time with, and who were doing the least amount of real work while in.
And what's worse, you have people on the outside - spouses, jobs, etc - that are convinced you need to get out, too. She will either get worse or go back, but guaranteed she is not "all better."

Has anybody been to the Meadows? It is a great place to heal from a variety of issues. When I was there, I did survivors week which had to with sexual abuse. I hope she goes back and I wish her well.

I was at RR a sister program to the Meadows next door, same doctors.... The Meadows is in a tiny hole in the wall town of Wickenburg, AZ, and only private pay..super expensive. The survivors week is supposed to be really 'intense'. My friends went to the Meadows and she said they treat some really hardcore people, like child pornos and theyre all together...she left early too saying it was just too much. Dr. Lee and Dr. Williams are knowledgeable, but a bit overbearing sometimes. It's a money hungry company for sure with the new owners.

I just hope she goes to College and make another Career for herself beside Music. She will feel much better with her self, accomplish something on her own. Having all this money for movies and concert or presentation is not making them happy. Psychological help is need it, just like all this young actor that are drug abusers.
What I'm really want to say is that she needs to finish what she start for once in her life or she will always be a Quiter!

It is easy for teens to get caught up in the wrong thing and almost anyone could agree with that. She has a busy type of lifestyle that would be overwhelming for any teen and she has to make decisions and take heed to certain resposiblities that many grown adults do not have to deal with in their daily lives. The fact that she chose to go to the Sundance festival for her upcoming movie might show that she 'bailed' on the rehab program, but with her lifestyle, that was a choice that she had to make. She might be getting private therapy which might prove to be more beneficial.

Besides that the resort wants the full amount they are due, could care less about Selena just give them their money.

Selena Gomez. From the latest Disney stars to get extremely famous, she was the only one who seemed to be going down the right track. I hope her issues aren't that serious because a lot of young girls looks up to her. It's sad that all of these role models end up being so screwed up in the head and have all these issues. Maybe it's too much pressure for all the Hollywood stars to be such role models.

Rehab is a very expensive joke and she was smart enough to know that. And rehab for a broken heart is outright fraud.
