Richie Sambora is checking into rehab, according to reports.

The guitar great is coming off a highly successful tour with Bon Jovi, but will be checking into a rehab facility for exhaustion and to regain his sobriety.

He spent time at Cirque Lodge in Utah in 2007 after his marriage to Heather Locklear unraveled, he split with girlfriend Denise Richards and his father died of lung cancer. That's a lot in such a short period of time. But why now?

”Richie recently has been drinking too much, and wants to get his life together," a source told Radar Online, saying the band is supportive of the decision.

"Richie has had a busy year," a close friend said. "I think this was a culmination of all the things that overloaded his life, and he needs to care of himself.”

It was not immediately clear how Sambora's treatment will affect his role in Bon Jovi, which will continue to tour the U.S. and Europe this summer.

Here's wishing him a full and speedy recovery back to health.


Most of us start by reading a lot to our chrleidn. Reading a wide variety of books, stories, histories, science books, poems, etc. Keep it fun and enjoyable and the kids will quickly soak up a lot of knowledge. Expose them to a wide variety of experiences and situations and talk about what is going on who are the people you encounter and what are they doing, why are you doing things, what are the names of things around you, etc. The more you explain things, the more they'll start to understand. Take them on walks and let them explore nature even just looking at bugs and birds and the plants growing.Sing simple chrleidn's songs. Help them learn the alphabet song. Count things around them. Point out letters and numbers on signs.Read a lot. If chrleidn see grownups in their life reading, they'll see it as an important thing and want to do it, too.Do arts and crafts painting, playing with clay, coloring, stringing beads, etc. These are not only fun but will help build the muscle control needed for writing.Play games with them. Board games. Outside games. Let them learn to take turns and follow rules.And read to them a lot.Good luck.

Richie, be strong and come back soon! Without you I is not Bon Jovi


I am sure there will be people who are ignorant or have never known what it's like to be addicted to something, make comments like he's a loser or worse. But, at least he is trying to get help. That is a step in the right direction. All I can do is wish him success in that department because if he doesn't overcome this problem it will consume him forever and there is so much more to life.


Get well and god bless
