Whitney Houston is returning to treatment again for drug and alcohol addiction. Her spokesperson, Kristen Foster said, “Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.” The talented, multiple Grammy Award winner has enrolled in an out-patient program instead of a residential facility. Publicist Jill Fritzo 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.”
Whitney Houston is one of the top-selling female artists of all time. She is known for hits like “I Will Always Love You” and “I’m Every Woman.” She also had a comeback in late 2009 with a new album, “I Look to You”–which included the hit “Million Dollar Bill”–after her first battle with drug addiction for years. She said she was healthy and clean. But her performances of her 2010 concert tour weren’t as good as her pre-drug past. At the opening of her British tour a year ago, she seemed short of breath. Fans complained about the quality of her voice. She was hospitalized with a respiratory infection in Paris and postponed many tour dates. Fans and critics alike in Australia panned her. When asked in April 2010 if she was using drugs again, she said that was ridiculous. But on Monday it was discovered that Houston enrolled in the rehab program about 10 days earlier. It was stated that she is getting ready for a movie and cleansing her system.
