Heather Locklear checks into psychological treatment facility

Heather Locklear checks into psychological treatment facility Actress Heather Locklear has checked into a psychological treatment facility in Arizona, according to a statement released by her publicist. The 46-year-old star has taken her battle with depression and anxiety into her own hands and has admitted herself to an unknown facility in Arizona. "Heather has been dealing with anxiety and depression. She requested an in-depth evaluation of her medication and entered into a medical facility for proper diagnosis and treatment. This is a confidential medical matter and no further statement will be released," read the official statement.

 According to gossip magazines, the move was expected sooner or later. People magazine claims that Heather Locklear began taking medication right after her divorce from Richie Sambora in February 2006. And in March, a man claiming to be Locklear's doctor called 911 and asked for assistance, fearing Locklear was feeling suicidal. Her publicist downplayed the incident at the time, claiming the actress was never in need of medical assistance. "[I] spoke with Heather and she is fine. She never requested medical assistance and did not place a 911 call. Nor did anyone from her house call 911 or place a call requesting medical assistance," the rep was quoted. That Heather Locklear consulted a new doctor, who suggested she re-evaluate her condition and medication, is another unconfirmed claim made by People.
