Whitney Houston Returns to Rehab for Alcohol and Drug Abuse

October 5, 2015

According to reports, Whitney Houston is back in rehab. Her spokeswoman Kristen Foster said in a statement to ABCNews.com, “I can confirm that Whitney Houston is currently in an outpatient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment. Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”

Pressed for more details, Foster wrote in an email, “Unfortunately not, saying anything more would conflict with the privacy/confidentiality she needs at this time….”

Since the 47-year-old Grammy-winning singer's comeback in 2009, she has been dogged by rumors that she was using drugs again.
