Following a recent hospitalization, the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen has checked back into treatment for the 19th time after reportedly admitting an addiction to Adderall. Socialite and part-time actress Brooke Mueller was rushed to the hospital on Friday, and her attorney Allie Gordon Weinstein denied rumors of an overdose, claiming that she was diagnosed at the hospital with exhaustion and dehydration. However, Mueller is allegedly telling friends that after receiving a prescription for psycho-stimulant drug Adderall, she began abusing it and ultimately took a dangerous amount, leading to her hospitalization. "Brooke was uncomfortable with the way Adderall was making her behave," said Brooke's second attorney, Yale Galanter. "[She] continues her lifelong battle with drug addiction by taking these steps herself to prevent a further drug relapse." Galanter insists that her client did not have any illegal drugs in her system at the time of the hospital visit, but Mueller still may face jail time since she did test positive for alcohol. This is a direct violation of the terms of her one-year probation stemming from a felony drug possession charge last May; however, it's unlikely prosecutors will attempt to pursue criminal charges since the alcohol level in her blood was reportedly low.
