The family of Brooke Mueller are concerned that the outpatient treatment that she is seeking will not be enough to get her off drugs and alcohol for good. However, they say they will not be staging an intervention to get her into the long-term residential program they think she needs.
After her arrest in Aspen on December 3 for cocaine possession, Brooke decided to seek outpatient treatment. Her family don’t feel it will give her the intensive help she needs but they had had enough of her relapses.
They have given her as much help and money as they are prepared to. Now, they will be emotionally supportive of her efforts, but they will not be trying to force her into a residential rehab if she doesn’t want that.
Brooke’s parents also refused to bail their daughter out when she was arrested in Aspen and sources close to the family say they not sure what else they can do for their troubled daughter. They are scared her addiction will kill her, but they know that without Brooke’s will to succeed in rehab, they are powerless to help her.
And furthermore, sources close to the situation say her parents are angry at her. They don’t believe her efforts to get sober are genuine. They consider it merely an attempt to gain favor with whatever judge sees the case in Aspen.
Brooke has already been in outpatient rehab four times and it has not worked.
A friend even called out her motives for avoiding residential rehab, saying,
“She is using her kids as an excuse to not enrol in rehab, when she hardly spends any time with them at all.”
