Brooke Mueller heads to rehab

2011-07-18 20:16
 
Los Angeles - Brooke Mueller is reportedly going to check into a rehab programme which will cure her addictions by giving her a drug that will "rewire" her brain.

The actress - the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen - is set to undergo an "extreme" seven-day treatment course at a facility in Cancun, Mexico, which specialises in giving patients Ibogaine, a hallucinogen drug that will re-programme her brain and cure her of her addictions, according to TMZ.com.

In some studies the drug - which is made from extracts from the iboga plant - has been shown to interrupt addictions to alcohol, cocaine, methadone and heroin. It is not legal in the US.

Flight attendant row

Brooke - who has endured a long battle with drug and alcohol abuse - recently completed a 45-day treatment programme at an unnamed facility

The news of her latest rehab plans come just days after Brooke - who has two-year-old twin sons Bob and Max with Charlie - was involved in a row with a flight attendant last week.

The 33-year-old blonde beauty was on a United Airlines flight to Cancun when she was prevented from using the restroom on board because the plane was about to depart.

After an arguing with a stewardess, the reality TV star exited the aircraft, though it is not known if she was ejected from the plane or allowed to disembark of her own accord.
