Brooke Mueller Taking 'Different Approach' To Addiction Treatment
Nearly two weeks after Brooke Mueller’s arrest for cocaine possession and alleged assault in Aspen, Colo., a rep for Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife revealed she is undergoing treatment.
“Recognizing past attempts at treatment have not been successful, Brooke has decided to take a different approach to deal with her addiction,” Mueller’s spokesperson, Steve Honig, said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Monday.
“Brooke will be participating in a program during the day, and will be under expert supervision 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” the statement continued. “In addition, Brooke has requested to be tested on a daily basis for cocaine and other illegal substances so there is no doubt as to her commitment.”
Honig said no changes will be made related to Mueller’s custody of 2-year old Twins Bob and Max, with ex-husband Sheen.
“Brooke will retain custody of her children, both of whom will continue to remain at her home and be cared for by Brooke and their longtime nanny,” Honig said in the statement. “Charlie and Brooke’s family are all fully supportive of this decision and recognize the importance of maintaining the children’s normal routine.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Mueller was arrested on December 2, after a woman claimed she was assaulted by the reality star.
She posted $11,000 bond and was released.
Mueller is due back in court on December 19.
