Ozzy Sends Daughter To Tough Boot Camp Rehab

OZZY OSBOURNE has sent his hellraising daughter KELLY to the tough boot-camp-style rehab clinic where he kicked his addictions to alcohol and drugs. The 24-year-old checked into the Hazelden Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Center in Oregon last week (21Jan09), just days after
she was arrested for slapping a British reporter.
Her mum Sharon confirmed the news on Friday, explaining, "Yeah, she's in rehab. Kelly knew that she needed help and she's getting it."
Hazelden, which has clinics in Minnesota, Oregon, Illinois and New York, offers addicts "abstinence-based treatment" and "spiritual care".
But Kelly can expect a different experience from her last time in rehab - a spell in Malibu, California's Promises Clinic - where she was treated in 2004 for an addiction to painkillers.
Ozzy has revealed in the past he is still haunted by his time at Hazelden, where he was allegedly abused by staff who promoted a regime of "tough love".
In a past Playboy interview, he claimed Hazelden was the hardest rehab he ever encountered during his long battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
Ozzy said, "Hazelden, in Minnesota, is a really hard one. They do not f**k around. I checked out because it scared me. They use a thing called tough love, where they're like, 'You f**king piece of s**t.' I was like, 'I felt like a piece of s**t before. That's why I am paying you all this money. You don't need to tell me every day.'"
A source tells WENN, "Ozzy hated his time in Hazelden and it must have been hard sending his daughter there, knowing how tough staff are with patients. But he is determined that she doesn't follow the same path he has. He wants her to be happy and healthy."
The Osbournes aren't the only stars to seek help at Hazelden. Sixties singer Marianne Faithfull credits the centre with getting her "off heroin" and past patients are rumoured to have included Eric Clapton, Liza Minnelli, Melanie Griffith, Matthew Perry, Bobby Brown, Natalie Cole and designer Calvin Klein.
