Selena Gomez spent a month at the psychiatric facility and reportedly received 'dialectical behavior therapy'
Selena Gomez was spotted leaving the east coast psychiatric facility where she received treatment after her massive emotional breakdown and where she stayed for a month.
According to TMZ, Selena checked out of the facility on Wednesday and is choosing to 'lay low'. The 'Back to you' singer received treatment which involved "dialectical behavior therapy" which has been described as "a therapy that treats various mental health disorders". In the month of October, Selena was reportedly suffering from "an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant".

It was during late September that Selena's family reportedly "drove her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA for treatment".
"She was released days later but had to be readmitted the next week because her low blood cell count persisted. She went into a downward emotional spiral," a source shared. "After she was admitted to the hospital for the second time, she demanded to leave. When doctors wouldn't oblige, she had 'a meltdown' and tried ripping the IVs out of her arm. It was characterized to us as 'an emotional breakdown'," the source continued.
Selena's tattoo artist recently shared that she "seemed in great spirits" before she decided to take a break to focus on her mental health. Keith McCurdy known as Bang Bang spoke to Page Six TV and said, "Right before I heard [Selena's] taking some time to work on her mental health, I talked to her. She was going to come in and get tattoos with a couple of friends and she seemed in great spirits. She sent me a video describing what she wanted to get".
Many fans are of the belief that Selena's mental breakdown was a result of her ex Justin Bieber tying the knot with Hailey Baldwin. After Selena and Justin split up in March, he quickly went to Hailey whom he had previously dated and the couple got engaged soon after. In September, Justin and Hailey wed in an NYC courthouse and are reportedly planning a large wedding ceremony which is likely to happen next year.
