Charlie Sheen: Also Off to Rehab

by at . Comments

The Sheen family takes a very different approach to rehab than Amy Winehouse.

With wife Brooke Mueller checked into a treatment center for substance abuse, Charlie Sheen's rep has confirmed that his client has also entered a facility as "a preventative measure."

"He will take some time off his series Two and a Half Men," the rep added, not elaborating on why Sheen is in rehab.

The actor is facing domestic violence charges as a result of his Christmas Day confrontation with Mueller. He's expected in an Aspen court on March 15.

Sheen has reportedly attended rehab programs at least twice before to battle drug and alcohol problems. A source tells People this stint relates to the fallout from the domestic violence case, however.

"Charlie is stressed. He's tired. The kids are on his mind. Brooke's on his mind," the insider said. "A lot of things are on his mind. He didn't want to get a place where he had the urge to get high. He's not using and he doesn't want to. He felt like he needed to get away from negative influences around him and clear his head, rest and take a short break."

Sheen will remain in the facility for two weeks.

Where is the outrage that was aimed at a 19 year old boy over ONE incident, which ocurred after HE had been slapped down over a year??? Where is the oprah winfrey and everyone she paid to crucify a 19 year old child??? Where is Obama's crazy brother??? Why isn't he on TV talking about domestic violence??? I pray that EVERYONE who heaped mounds of abuse on the 19 year old child Chris Brown gets what they deserve. I don't know why they heaped all that hate on him, but if it had, had anything to do with domestic violence, THEY WOULD BE ALL OVER SHEEN, EDWARDS, DON CORNELIUS, BEEBEE WINAN AND ALL THE OTHER OLD MEN WHO DEFINITELY KNOW BETTER.
