Heather Locklear has checked herself into an in-patient treatment facility in Arizona. The quintessential evening soap opera vixen is on the road to recovery. And no, it’s not for substance abuse.
As for the reason? To deal with issues of anxiety, depression, and to re-evaluate her current condition. We give props to the 46 year-old actress who apparently recently switched doctors and is taking a pro-active stance towards her mental health. The new doc recommended that her condition and medication be re-evaluated.
While her publicist confirmed that Heather’s been dealing with anxiety and depression, it seems she’s taking it head on: by entering the facility she’ll get a proper diagnosis and treatment.
Actually, a few months ago paramedics were called to her home. Her psychiatrist called 9-1-1 and told authorities there was concern for a possible overdose attempt on prescription meds. Well, paramedics left her home extremely quickly after arrival and deemed everything was all right.
As for the back story, last year her ex-husband and Bon Jovi band member Richie Sambora stayed in a treatment facility last year. Their ten year-old daughter Ava is staying with family at the moment.
Best wishes, Heather!
