Brooke Mueller is off to rehab in Cancun, Mexico. She was spotted leaving L.A International Airport yesterday, after being discharged from a hospital on Monday post her alleged on-flight altercation last week. She was accompanied by her personal physician who’s coming with her for the program which isn’t a plush, celebrity holiday, as most soujourns in Cancun are. Brooke’s determined to kick her drug habit for good this time round and is even willing to try out something called “ibogaine”, which is illegal in the U.S, Ã‚Â for that purpose. That’s the reason why she has to go across the border.
Ibogaine is an experimental treatment that is supposed to stop drug cravings. Here’s the irony though — ibogaine itself is a hallucinogen. Her physician will be overseeing everything though, and it’s been approved in Canada and other countries as well. A source reveals that, “Brooke is absolutely desperate. She wants to be sober, and she thinks that this could be just the thing that will do it. Brooke is aware of the dangers of ibogaine, but she is going to proceed anyway.” Mueller’s going to be in rehab for a week. We wish her well and hope it works out for her! Desperate times lead to desperate measures but you never know what’ll do the trick. Her kids are being watched by their aunt and nanny, in case you were wondering.
