    Default Tatum O'Neal is back in rehab

    Tatum O' Neal 'voluntarily returns to rehab after cocaine relapse'



    The daughter of actor Ryan O' Neal has voluntarily returned to rehab after a 'cocaine relapse.'

    Academy Award winning actress Tatum O'Neal, 48, allegedly checked back into rehab after having a full-fledged relapse last month.

    She has battled an addiction to drugs for most of her adult life.


    Actress Tatum O' Neal has reportedly checked into rehab after relapsing into drug use


    'Tatum allegedly made the decision to voluntarily check into rehab after having a relapse about a month ago when she began using cocaine again,' a source told Radaronline.

    However, Tatum is at a rehab facility that doesn't follow the 12 step AA model, which doesn't bode well for her success, according to the source.

    'Tatum is doing really, really bad at the facility she is at. Tatum isn't at a 12 step based treatment program, and that is a huge problem because someone with Tatum's addiction needs to be at a rehab facility like Betty Ford or Cirque Lodge which adhere to the 12 step model,' the source says.

    'Tatum is essentially in denial about how bad her addiction is. Tatum is refusing to embrace the 12 step AA model to get sober.'

    In contrast, her brother Redmond is in a very strict facility that offers intensive treatment based on the 12 step AA model.
    Tatum has had a long well-documented battle with drugs, and a difficult realtionship with her father.

    She has said: 'My father had an abusive streak a mile wide.
    'There was always a slugging thing. Or a backhand, or a throwing out of the car, or whatever. It was rough, just rough around the house.'

    As a child O'Neal took her to Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion, where sex and debauchery was rampant, and she also slept in the same bed as him and his girlfriends.

    When she was 15 and struggling with a weight problem, she alleges her father went so far as to tell her to use cocaine as a way of combating it.
    She said she began to lead a cocaine-fuelled life, to escape the reality of her star-crossed existence.

    i don't think the fact that she's not at a 12-step facility doesn't mean she's going to fail. i really hate how some people think that 12-step is the solution to everything when really, it's not for everyone.

    Me too. I just despise him. It wouldn't surprise me if he actually molested her but we know he beat and abused all his kids. He is an utterly vile, conscienceless, narcissistic piece of trash.

    On the other hand, Tatum is such a survivor and a talented actress too. I hope she gets better!

    I just watched LITTLE DARLINGS again and I still love it. Hopefully Tatum will be in control of her addiction again. Seems like that Ryan O'Neal was a rather rotten father to the whole clan. I read Tatum's book and the fact that Ryan left two kids under 12 with two weeks worth of groceries alone to fend for themselves is just horribly irresponsible and makes my blood boil. I know people who will do anything to be a parent and this man had 4 kids he doesn't seem to be interested in.

    Aww man I like her and thought she was doing so well, especially from what I saw on their show. Ryan probably gave her that first sniff this time. There is nothing I wouldn't put past him.

    The lead story has been updated with the information that Redmond is paying for her treatment with his legacy from Farrah.

    That's a nice thing to do and I hope it works. Btw, she looks great and as an Acadamy Award winner, I hope she gets back to work too.
