brooke mueller charlie sheen horizontal Brooke Mueller hospitalized for prescription drug abuseNews broke on Saturday (May 4) that Charlie Sheen and ex-wife Brooke Mueller‘s twin boys, Max and Bob, 4, were removed from Mueller’s care by the Department of Children and Family Services after the DCFS had determined that Mueller’s suspected drug use made the environment “unsafe.”

The twins are now under the care of Denise Richards, Sheen’s other ex and mother to his two daughters, Sam and Lola.

Now Mueller’s rep has released a statement clarifying just what is going on with her situation.

“Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3. Brooke will be there for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse,” says rep Steve Honig in a statement.

He adds, “Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom.”

The treatment at a residential facility that Mueller’s rep says is coming after she is released from the hospital is hardly her first stint in rehab, having gone in 2010, 2011 and twice in 2012.
