Heather Locklear In Rehab After Arrest, Substance Abuse
Actress Heather Locklear has been admitted to a rehabilitation facility after her arrest last month.
The 56-year-old was charged with one count felony domestic violence and three counts misdemeanor battery on a police officer at the time of the arrest.
The admission comes after it was revealed that she has been allegedly battling substance abuse "for years".
A source told ET that the actress was finally "getting the help finally needs" after her daughter, Ava (20) urged her to seek treatment.
"Ava begged her mom to go to rehab," the source says.
"After Heather finally agreed, Ava went away with her father to get a break from it all.
"[She] wants her mother to get clean and sober once and for all.
"[Ex-Husband] Richie is done helping. He is happy to be with Ava and is focusing on taking time out to spend time with his daughter during a very difficult time.
"Her family feels like she needs to cut herself off from some 'not so healthy' friends and start a cleaner life.
"They are rallying around her in hopes this time will be different and she will complete her program."
