Brooke Mueller may finally be getting the help she needs.

Charlie Sheen’s ex wife has checked herself into a “long-term, in-patient treatment center” following a recent arrest for alleged cocaine possession and assault, her rep Steve Honig says in a statement.

“Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight … [so] she can focus on her recovery without distraction,” the statement reads. “Brooke’s goal is to maintain her sobriety, and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal.”
