Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, has entered rehab following her arrest last week in Aspen, Colo. “After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction,” Mueller’s spokesperson Steve Honig said.

Mueller, who split from Sheen earlier this year, was arrested for suspicion of third-degree assault and cocaine possession with intent to distribute, and was released on bail. A court date was set for Dec. 19 at the time of arrest .

Mueller will retain custody of her and Sheen’s two children, Honig said.
