Brooke Mueller heads back to rehab for 19th time

By Daniel S Levine,

Brooke Mueller, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, is heading back to rehab. This time, she reportedly has an addiction to Adderall.

TMZ is reporting that Mueller checked herself into rehab Monday night, using a facility that she has been to many times before. This is her 19th trip to rehab and it is unknown how long she will be treated.

“Brooke was uncomfortable with the way Adderall was making her behave,” her attorney, Yale Galanter, told TMZ. “Brooke continues her lifelong battle with drug addiction by taking these steps herself to prevent a further drug relapse.”

The news comes after reports last weekend that she was rushed to the hospital after overdosing on drugs. Her rep released a statement claiming that she had no illegal drugs in her system. Galanter reiterated that to TMZ on Monday.

Mueller is still under probation in Aspen, Colorado, where she is prohibited from drinking alcohol. Galanter said that she only had a small amount in her system over the weekend and he’s confident that won’t be a probation violation.

Adderall is used to treat ADD and Mueller is admitting that she took too many this weekend, which led to her hospital trip, TMZ’s sources say.

According to Zap2It, Mueller and Sheen had two children, twins Bob and Max, who are currently with a nanny.
