“Whitney Houston Begins Drug Rehab”

120

May 9, 2011 by The ReadyWriter


Kristen Foster, a representative for Whitney Houston said that, the R&B singer voluntarily entered an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment today, a program to support her long-standing recovery process.

No details about the treatment, or what led to the singer’s decision to start the program, were released.

Let’s wish my girl Whitney the best and pray for her on her quest for sobriety.

        Yeah, outpatient is not really re-hab…if she wants to get well, she needs to be in an in-patient program followed up with 90 AA meetings in 90 days, get a sponsor. she also needs to change her playgrounds and playmates…then she has a chance “of” recovery…otherwise, the merry-go-round goes round, and round, and round…

      When a person stops doing drugs…the first thing you will notice is they are consistent….and disciplined. You can tell she was OFF in the previous pics.

        I have alotta sympathy for anyone with an addiction. She needs to get and stay in rehab, and then get lots of follow-up for that matter. She needs to assume her career is over until she is clean for a few years.

        And, did anyone catch her on TV recently? Her voice was terrible and she looked worse. I felt very bad for her. It should be a lesson to all of us that anyone can fall.

        But Jesus can pick you back up again if you let him.

        As I lay me down
        Heaven hear me now
        I’m lost without a cause
        After giving it my all

        Winter storms have come
        And darkened my sun
        After all that I’ve been through
        Who on earth can I turn to?

        Chorus:
        I look to you,
        I look to you
        After all my strength is gone
        In you I can be strong
        I look to you,
        I look to you
        And when melodies are gone In you I hear a song
        I look to you

        Have to lose my breath
        There’s no fighting left
        Sinking to rise no more
        Searching for that open door

        And every road that I’ve taken
        Led to my regret
        And I don’t know if I’m go’n make it
        Nothing to do but lift my head

        Chorus:

        My levees are broken
        My walls are coming down on me
        My rain is falling
        Defeat is calling
        I need you to set me free
        Take me far away from the battle
        I need you
        Shine on me!

        Bigger news flash: as an “out patient” she can attend church and go anywhere else she’d like. Because she was seen in public does not mean she is not in treatment. As an out patient, you don’t pack a bag and stay at the facility.
