Courageous Heather Locklear Returns To Rehab Following Mental Hospital Release


The road to recovery for mental illness as well as substance abuse is long and hard. Heather Locklear  has returned to rehab following her hospitalization, Highlight Hollywood confirms.


While it’s unknown how long the 57-year-old will remain in a treatment facility, her family hopes she will spend a long time there, according to Radar Online, who first reported the news.

In November, a source exclusively told Us that Locklear was hospitalized one week after being placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold. “Heather will remain hospitalized for the time being,” the insider revealed. “It’s very serious and her family is gathering information needed to make a move for conservatorship.”
It is Locklear’s third stint in rehab this year. She has previously battled substance abuse issues. “Addiction is ferocious and will try to take you down,” she wrote in an Instagram post in September. “Recovery is the best revenge. Be kind to everyone you meet, your light just might change their path.”
