It’s been reported that Kim Richards has made a decision on her own to check herself into rehab.
Following the 50-year-old’s arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel for reportedly being heavily intoxicated and disorderly, and storming out of her interview with Dr. Phil, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has agreed to get the help she needs.
We hear she is currently in a live-in facility in Malibu that specializes in substance abuse.
Sources close to Richards said that she made the decision after consulting with her family, and is planning on staying in the rehab facility as long as it takes to get better.
We applaud the RHOBH star for seeking the help she needs, as one of the hardest steps of recovery for substance abuse is acknowledging the problem.
We know Kim has sought out treatment in the past, but we hope this time is the time that really helps her heal.
