Singer Whitney Houston, 47, has entered an out-patient rehabilitation treatment program for substance abuse, which she has famously struggled with in the past.
In a statement, her rep said:
“Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment. Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”
The singer initially entered rehab in 2004, telling Diane Sawyer in an interview:
“I partied a lot. Trust me: I partied my tail off. You get to a point where you know the party’s over.”
She then received treatment again in 2005 with the help of her mother, Cissy Houston.
