OZZY OSBOURNE SENDS DAUGHTER KELLY TO BOOT CAMP:
January 30, 2009
Ozzy Osbourne has sent his hellraising daughter Kelly to the tough boot-camp-style rehab clinic where he kicked his addictions to alcohol and drugs. The 24-year-old checked into the Hazelden Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Center in Oregon last week, just days after she was arrested for slapping a British reporter.
Her mom Sharon confirmed the news on Friday, explaining, “Yeah, she’s in rehab. Kelly knew that she needed help and she’s getting it.”
Hazelden, which has clinics in Minnesota, Oregon, Illinois and New York, offers addicts “abstinence-based treatment” and “spiritual care.”
But Kelly can expect a different experience from her last time in rehab – a spell in Malibu, California’s Promises Clinic – where she was treated in 2004 for an addiction to painkillers.
Ozzy has revealed in the past he is still haunted by his time at Hazelden, where he was allegedly abused by staff who promoted a regime of “tough love.”
