Whitney Houston Seeking Rehab For Drug And Alcohol Treatment

Whitney Houston’s struggle with addiction is far from over, it seems. A representative for the Bodyguard singer/actress, who just last week performed on stage with “I’m Every Woman” originator Chaka Khan during one of Prince’s concerts at the Forum in L.A., told People that Houston is seeking rehabilitation once more.

“Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment,” the rep told the mag in a statement. “Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.” This marks Houston’s third rehab stint since 2004.

Best wishes for healthy days ahead, Whitney!

    We’re so tired of hearing stories of celebs with access to unlimited resources failing to cope with real life. My brothers and sisters and I grew up on welfare, with a mentally ill mother and an absentee father. When we were teens and my mother was committed again and again to mental institutions, we had to steal food, clothing and toiletries to survive. Yet, today, we have all broken the cycle of poverty and abuse for ourselves and our children. How? We had exceptional teachers. They didn’t just dispense facts. Instead, they provided opportunities for us to confirm our self worth. Whitney, read my story, My Mother Killed Christ: But God Loves Me Anyway, and cut the crap! You talent is limitless.

    “Whitney Houston’s struggle with addiction is far from over…” Sadly, it is all over. She has passed and I will miss her dearly. She was fighting it but unfortunately it was not to be.

    Many families who have parents struggling with addiction can cause the kids to start abusing drugs. In situations like this finding a quality education program is essential. Sometimes sending these kids to a boarding school or residential program which have smaller classrooms is helpful.

    Nippy fought hard but probably should have been encouraged to step away from the industry…..too many temptations, too much stress and the tours took her away from her Mom who I believe truly loved her and told her the truth, regardless of how Nippy may have felt. Nippy’s addictions were deep and she needed to be away from that environment if she was to have any chance of winning the battle against drugs. She loved God and God loved her and her fans have to say goodbye but the legacy of THE VOICE will live on through the music. Rest in peace Nippy until judgment day.
