Whitney Houston in outpatient rehab for alcohol, drugs

May 9, 2011 |  2:00 pm

Whitney Houston is back in rehab.Whitney Houston has enrolled in an outpatient rehabilitation program to deal with drug and alcohol issues, her rep confirmed Monday.

This comes after the singer struggled last year while on tour overseas, prompting whispers she'd possibly fallen off the wagon.

"Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her longstanding recovery process," Team Whitney told People on Monday in a statement.

TMZ, which broke the story, said the singer checked in about 10 days ago -- and then a week ago, the singer was spotted at a Prince concert, rocking out with daughter Bobbi Kristina.

Houston has been through rehab several times and has in the past admitted using cocaine, marijuana, alcohol and pills. Her drug woes go back a while, including her 2000 bust at a Hawaii airport with a bag of marijuana.
