Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Mueller has followed Lindsay Lohan's lead and quit the Betty Ford rehab clinic in favour of another treatment centre.

The former real estate agent checked into UCLA Medical Center in May (13) to undergo treatment for an ongoing issue with prescription drug addiction and subsequently enrolled in a recovery programme at the fabled retreat near Palm Springs, California.

However, she has since left Betty Ford and switched to a facility in Orange County, where professionals will help her better transition back into her everyday life, reports

News of Mueller's exit comes just a day after Lohan walked out of Betty Ford and headed to the Cliffside clinic in Malibu to complete her 90-day course of court-ordered treatment, which began on 2 May (13).
