Whitney's Alleged Interventionist Speaks Out
February 20, 2012
Elaine Baer, a celebrity interventionist who claims she worked with Whitney Houston before her death, revealed why she feels the star's treatments for addiction failed.
According to Elaine, Whitney's family staged at least six interventions for the late singer, which were successful in getting her to treatment, but that was only half the battle.
"[Whitney's mom] Cissy, her brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles and children should all have been in a family program every time Whitney went to treatment," said Elaine, explaining that even though Whitney was the only one with an addiction, the family also needs to be trained in how to keep Whitney from the risks of setback. "The family has to be treated as a whole or you leave a lot of holes in it and then behavior leaks out and relapse happens."
Whitney and Bobby Brown's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was hospitalized for stress and anxiety after her mother's passing, and Elaine had some words of advice for Bobbi.
"My message to Bobbi Kristina and those around her are to watch her carefully and very diligently," said Elaine. "And I really hope that she's proud of her mother for the things that she did do for her."
