We really thought Whitney had turned things around, but her rep tells us that she voluntarily checked herself in.

We’re pulling for Whitney Houston! HollywoodLife.com has just confirmed that the Grammy-Award winning artist is in an undisclosed out-patient rehab facility for her life-long struggle with drug and alcohol addictions.

“Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment,” her rep Jill Fritzo tells us. “Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”

But Whitney, 47, is able to come and go as she pleases as long as she’s with a sober companion. Whitney and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, were just spotted at a Prince concert and appeared to be having a good time. Whitney is also about to begin work on a new film.

Whitney and her ex-husband Bobby Brown ended their 14-year-marriage in 2006.
