Selena Gomez has reportedly entered rehab to address her emotional struggles.
According to a new report, the 24-year-old singer is going to “extraordinary lengths” to get her life back on track after revealing her struggles with anxiety, depression, and panic attacks last month.
“The facility is a women’s only facility in a secluded wooded area,” a source told Radar Online on September 27. “She’s staying for more than 60 days.”

Selena Gomez’s rehab of choice has not been disclosed, but according to Radar Online, it “is not a huge celebrity center or anything like that, and it’s not somewhere where Selena has any ties.”
The source went on to confirm that despite the ongoing rumors regarding alcohol and drug use, Selena Gomez is not being treated for any type of drug-related problem. Instead, the root of her problems were said to stem from her lupus diagnosis and depression.
“The rehab has a Christianity-based track, which might have been appealing given her religious background,” the source continued, revealing the facility offers intense therapy sessions and equine therapy.
Selena Gomez has become known for her Christianity in recent years and was spotted earlier this year singing on stage at a Hillsong Church concert.
While the program will reportedly last at least a couple of months, the source revealed that Selena Gomez and other residents are allowed to leave the facility as a group for day trips in the area.
“They’ve significantly heightened security since she checked in,” the report added.
Radar Online went on to reveal that Selena Gomez has faced a number of hardships in recent months, starting with the shocking murder of her close friend, Christina Grimmie, in June. Two months later, as she continued to struggle with the loss, Selena Gomez was involved in an Instagram feud with her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, which reportedly contributed in the singer’s downward spiral.

Since Selena Gomez’s “Revival World Tour” was canceled, rumors have been swirling in regard to her possible drug use. In fact, just weeks ago it was Radar Online who suggested Selena Gomez was only claiming to be suffering from emotional struggles in an effort to hide her alleged drug problem.
“It is terrible that [Selena Gomez] has Lupus,” an inflammatory disease that occurs when the immune system attacks its own organs and tissues, “but she is using this as an excuse for everything lately and the truth is that she is just a mess right now,” explained a source. “She has been feeling completely alone lately.”
The source then claimed it was the death of Grimmie, which prompted Selena Gomez’s rumored drug abuse. According to the insider, Selena Gomez began using a deadly cocktail of “Lunesta, Ambien, Klonopin and Xanax” before her loved ones staged a “desperate intervention” and checked her into rehab.
“Everyone close to [Selena Gomez] is worried because she seems to be back to old behavior,” the source added of Selena Gomez, who reportedly checked into treatment back in 2014 as well.
Selena Gomez has been completely silent on Instagram and Twitter for this entire month and has yet to say anything to fans in regard to when she will return to the spotlight and possibly, her tour.
In regard to the latest rumor regarding Selena Gomez’s alleged stint in rehab, the singer and her reps have remained silent, and no confirmation of any such thing has been given.
