Brooke Mueller, ex-wife of actor Charlie Sheen, has decided to enter an in-house, drug treatment facility rather than seek in-home care -- contradicting what “The World According to Paris” actress said just days ago.
Access Hollywood reports that Mueller’s rep, Steve Honig, told media, "After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction."
According to Honig, “She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment. Brooke’s goal is to maintain her sobriety and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal."
Furthermore, “Brooke will retain custody of the children, who will remain in their home and familiar surroundings and be under the care of their longtime nanny. Charlie and Brooke’s parents fully support her decision and everyone recognizes the importance of maintaining the children's normal routine."
Mueller’s decision to enter an in-house facility comes shortly after her arrest in Aspen, Colorado for possession of cocaine earlier this month, and after completing an in-home course of drug treatment in July.
Last week, the 34-year old mother of twins said that she preferred to seek treatment at home again (rather than in a rehab unit), so she could spend time with her young sons. However, just days later, Mueller was photographed along LA’s Sunset Blvd., the drugs and alcohol epicenter for Hollywood’s party crowd.
Meanwhile, the Strictly Sexual performer is awaiting trial in Colorado.
