Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, has entered a residential treatment facility, and it's not in Mexico, but rather, it’s in the United States, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Mueller had planned on going to Mexico to undergo treatment with the controversial drug Ibogaine to stop her cravings for illegal drugs. Ibogaine is classified as a hallucinogenic, and it’s illegal in the U.S.
Brooke had gone to LAX twice in the past week to go to Mexico, but the first time she got in a fight with United Airlines flight attendant and got off the plane before it left the gate, and the second time, she wasn't allowed to board because she didn't have her passport with her.
Sources close to Mueller tell RadarOnline.com: "She was convinced that was a sign to not go to Mexico. Brooke was aware that Ibogaine is a very dangerous drug to take, and could potentially do more harm than good for her."
So, instead, the former Mrs. Charlie Sheen, and mother of his twin boys, Bob and Max, entered an undisclosed inpatient residential treatment facility within the last 72 hours in the U.S.
"This was a very big step for Brooke to take,” the source says. “Brooke has resisted entering a residential facility because she didn't want to be away from her sons. Brooke did complete several outpatient programs in the past six months, but she would quickly relapse. Brooke finally realized she had to check in for intense treatment."
