Chris Brown Rehab Recovery
Chris Brown headed back to court in LA Friday for a progress report hearing regarding his probation for the 2009 assault case of then girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was ordered to 90 days in rehab by the judge in the case in Nov. 2013. Chris Brown entered rehab optimistically and focused and of course with the support of his friend Karrueche Tran.
Prosecutors in the case wanted Brown sent to jail for probation violation due to a recent arrest in October 2013 in Washington D.C. In the Washington D.C. incident, Brown and his bodyguard have been accused of punching a man outside a hotel and breaking his nose. During the hearing, the rehab facility reported Brown suffers from Bipolar II, and PTSD. It goes on stating,
"Mr. Brown will also require close supervision by his treating physician in order to ensure his bipolar mental condition remains stable. It is not uncommon for patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar II to use substance to self-medicate their biomedical mood swings and trauma triggers."
"Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD." The report also confirms Brown has completed 250 hours of community service and has 750 hours left to complete.
Brown himself stated to the court "that he appreciates what he has learned in the rehabilitation facility, as it allowed him to change his life for the better," and "he remains thankful to the court for the opportunity to find out and learn about himself, his anger issues an the type of person he wants to become, which is a man who is able to better himself and be positive role model."
Even thought the rehab facility gave Chris Brown a good report, Superior Judge James Brandlin decided to send Brown back to rehab for an additional two months. Brown's next hearing is set for April 23, 2014. The new court date is set for after the trial for the Washington D.C.
