Charlie Sheen's ex Brooke Mueller has decided to undergo outpatient addiction treatment so she can continue to care for the couple's two children at home.

Spokesman Steve Honig said the decision represents "a different approach" for Brooke to fight her addiction. "Brooke will be participating in a program during the day, and will be under expert supervision 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, Brooke has requested to be tested on a daily basis for cocaine and other illegal substances so there is no doubt as to her commitment," Honig said in a statement.

"Brooke will retain custody of her children, both of whom will continue to remain at her home and be cared for by Brooke and their longtime nanny. Charlie and Brooke's family are all fully supportive of this decision and recognize the importance of maintaining the children's normal routine," the statement adds. Mueller and Sheen have twin boys together, Bob and Max.

The rehab announcement follows Mueller's December 2 arrest in Aspen, CO during which she was taken into custody for alleged misdemeanor assault and on suspicion of cocaine possession with intent to distribute -- a class four felony. Mueller was released after posting an $11,000 bond.
