Insiders: Charlie Sheen Wants To Be Seen As A Wild Child, Not As A Guy In Mid-Life Crisis

Two mental health experts tell HollywoodLife.com Charlie Sheen did the right thing by admitting himself in rehab, but it’s going to take an incredible amount of work for him to clean up his act once and for all

After landing in the hospital following an excessive 36-hour bender that reportedly included porn stars, cocaine, alcohol and other paraphernalia, Charlie Sheen admitted himself into rehab Jan. 28. HollywoodLife.com consulted with two doctors who agree Charlie’s wild behavior is a desperate, subconscious plea for help.

“Charlie is making his indulgences in excess louder, hoping that people will still see him as a ‘wild child’ and not in mid-life crisis,” media psychiatrist and bestselling author Carole Lieberman M.D. told us.

She added, “Though his acting career is a success, his love life is a disaster and a source of constant pain. His substance abuse has begun to take a more serious physical toll, so that he’s not able to bounce back as quickly as he once was.”

Although Charlie has been in and out of both jail and rehab for years, clinical psychologist and Attorney-At-Law Dr. Sheila Forman thinks the 45-year-old actor might finally clean up his act.

“This time could be different if he is willing to do what he needs to do to recover,” she said, explaining, “This would include: acknowledging that he has a problem; detoxing from the substances in his system; actively engaging in therapy; and accepting responsibility for his actions.”

Charlie’s hit CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men, is on hiatus until he goes through treatment. We hope this time Charlie can conquer his addictions and get back on the wagon for good.

A wild child? Charlie should be more focused on wanting to be seen as a good role model and father to his children not a wild freaking child. You’re 45 Charlie not 15, you’re not a child anymore!

At 45 years old he is no wild child, except maybe to his parents. He’s a grown man who just keeps on doing bad things to himself and others.
He should have no contact with any of his children. He really should lose his job. He needs consequences, yet hasn’t had any. He should have been arrested in NYC when he trashed that room and frightened that woman to death.
He’s no charmer anymore, he’s bizarre and insane. For his own sake he needs to grow up and act like a responsible adult. He needs help badly!
His spiral downwards with no one stopping him is a disgrace. A regular person would have be arrested for what he did in NYC. He should have been arrested the other night also for having BRICKS of cocaine delivered to his house like pizza.
Such a shame that young children are involved. He needs to take a step back and think about those kids. Maybe just maybe they want a living father. The spiral he’s taking is going to six feet under. His odds of dying have risen considerably with this latest situation at his house. The odds of him living another year are so diminished that Las Vegas should make a bet on it. If he doesn’t stop now, he won’t be alive by the end of this year.
