“The facility is a women’s only facility in a secluded wooded area,” a source said. “She’s staying for more than 60 days.”

Unlike other high-profile stars, Selena’s rehab, “is not a huge celebrity center or anything like that, and it’s not somewhere where Selena has any ties,” reveals a source. Furthermore, the source says to Radar, “Gomez that is NOT being treated for drug-related problems — and the root cause of her issues are related to her medical diagnoses, as well as depression.” They also say that, “they’ve significantly heightened security since she checked in.”

Selena had stated while she cancelled the Revival tour explaining to her fans, ” I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this. I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”

Let’s wish her best of luck, and hope she will come back fresh from therapy…
