Heather Locklear celebrated her sobriety with a photo expressing her gratefulness after being advised to go through treatment.


Heather Locklear has been sober for a while now, and everyone around her is happy to hear the good news. On Tuesday, the actress celebrated with a photo posted on Instagram, which read: “You’re still sober keep that [expletive] up.”

After struggling with addiction for years, Locklear sought help from a rehabilitation center and checked herself in the facility, a source told PEOPLE in May. Over a month after, she was seen in Los Angeles in high spirits to meet a friend for lunch.

“Everybody is hopeful that this time will be different, but it’s hard to tell,” the source said. “She’s not going into anything new is the problem, though; she’s just going back to something she has done before.”

Locklear’s family is hopeful of the impact her therapy will make, despite the numerous times she tried with rehab before – “20 times, perhaps 25.” After all, money is not a problem for the star, hence the many attempts to get clean.

In June, she made headlines after being accused of attacking a police officer and an EMT who helped after receiving a call for help and a possible overdose from that month and the months she spent in rehab.

However, her lawyer pleaded not guilty, according to USA Today.

In 2018, the “Dynasty” star was arrested after being caught driving under the influence, and when tested, showed blood-alcohol levels twice of the legally allowed value.

Her past situation has hurt many people, including her 21-year-old daughter, Ava.


“Her issue is alcohol, pills, and her mental health. She doesn’t want anybody to hold her accountable. She has no job, nothing to keep her accountable,” a source said. “This has been tearing up her family. It’s been an ongoing issue for many many years.”

While the sobriety is a small step to what could be a significant change in Lockload’s lifestyle, it remains a matter of time and will power whether she can maintain it or not.

Her friends, family, and fans all hope and pray for a good outcome from this rehab.
