Actress Heather Locklear has reportedly checked into rehab for substance abuse treatment.
“She went back to rehab two weeks ago. She went back to the place she left before Christmas. She had left for three days right before Christmas and never gone back,” a source told People. “Heather’s problem is she doesn’t get serious about anything. She was continuing to drink.” (RELATED: Heather Locklear ‘Needs Help’ Following Psychiatric Hold, According To Insider)
The source said the issue has been ongoing and that Locklear hasn’t had much accountability. The addiction has started to take a toll on her family, including her daughter Ava who she shares with ex Richie Sambora.
“Her issue is alcohol, pills, and her mental health. She doesn’t want anybody to hold her accountable. She has no job, nothing to keep her accountable. This has been tearing up her family. It’s been an ongoing issue for many many years. It has been horrible for Ava,” the source said.
Locklear reportedly was doing an in-patient program, but checked out in December to celebrate Christmas with her family. While she intended to return, she never did.
