SELENA Gomez is focusing on religion to avoid going to rehab.
The actress and singer — who’s parents want her away from her bad boy beau Justin Bieber — is trying to find a solution to her “depression and anxiety”.
“Selena is trying to change her ways by going to church and more so to avoid going to rehab. She feels like she has a spiritual gap and that maybe that’s why she is struggling,” a source told HollywoodLife.
“She learned about the spiritual aspect in rehab when they talked about the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Her parents are just hoping that this isn’t just some short lived stint to avoid rehab.
“Her parents and friends love and hate the idea of using religion. They love it that it shows that Selena knows she needs help, and is looking at outlets to heal herself, but hate it because they know that it probably will not work.
“She needs rehab and people who need rehab never want it, and that is the mode that they are in with her at this time.”
Selena’s parents are worried sick about their daughter and are hoping she will check into rehab.
“Selena’s main issues are depression and anxiety and obviously when she drinks alcohol, it only amplifies the problem — she also has trouble sleeping, which makes everything worse,” the insider explained.
“Selena really wants to get better but isn’t sure what to do. Rehab is not something she thinks she needs. She thinks if she can just focus on her career and stay away from certain people, things will get better.”
