Heather Locklear has once again been put on an involuntary psychiatric hold, this time by her therapist. The Dynasty and Melrose Place actor has been fighting mental health, addiction, and legal problems -- and the professionals believe that she might have left rehab too early.
TMZ says that the decision to send Locklear back to the hospital was made yesterday.
"Heather was at her home Sunday afternoon when her therapist and lawyer realized she desperately needed help. Someone called 911 and EMTs arrived, and Heather was taken to a hospital. "
Locklear has been working with a therapist who determined that, in dealing with her ongoing problems, she was having another mental breakdown which required hospitalization.
Sources say that this time, no laws have been broken. 911 was called as a precaution, to make sure that Locklear had safe passage and medical care on her way back to the hospital.
It's unclear if Heather Locklear was abusing alcohol or prescription drugs at the time of this most recent mental breakdown, but substance abuse has been a key component of her problems in the past, per the Inquisitr.
Dr. Stuart Fischer explains that abuse of prescription medication alone can cause a mental breakdown -- or even a psychotic break.
