Brooke Mueller has returned to rehab after relapsing
The former wife of Charlie Sheen - who is currently on probation after being arrested for cocaine possession in December - checked herself into an undisclosed in-patient treatment facility a few weeks ago on the actor`s advice, according to gossip website TMZ.
Brooke - who has struggled with substance abuse issues in the past - reportedly appeared "out of it" when she paid a recent visit to her ex-husband, with whom she has three-year-old twin sons Bob and Max so Charlie urged her to get help.
A source close to Brooke told Celebuzz, she "partied for four days straight ... and ultimately fell off the wagon".
The insider added: "Brooke`s family is hoping that she finally understands the consequences of her actions. That is, she risks losing all of her rights to the children if she doesn`t get clean - once and for all."
Brooke,34, is said to have missed Mother`s Day with twins, Bob and Max, on May 13 while partying and her mother Moira Fiore was looking after the kids.
However, Brooke`s representative Steve Honig claims her recent hospitalisation was planned.
He said: "As part of her ongoing treatment and as planned, she voluntarily checked herself into a rehab facility several weeks ago."
