Heather Locklear, recently the subject of high-profile run-ins with police, has voluntarily agreed to undergo long-term rehab for substance-abuse and mental-health issues, TMZ reports.

Currently in the psychiatric ward of a prominent L.A.-area hospital, Locklear is set to enter a facility upon her release.

Sources close to Locklear's family told TMZ her issues have been diagnosed as being related to both substances and mental health, and that Locklear — combative during her arrests — has been "cooperative so far."

Locklear was arrested in June for battery on a police officer immediately before being hospitalized for an overdose.

Locklear has worked steadily since her TV debut in 1980, most memorably on the series "Dynasty" (1981-1989), "T.J. Hooker" (1982-1986), "Melrose Place" (1993-1999), and "Spin City" (1999-2002). Her most recent gig was as a fictional first lady on the series "Too Close to Home" that ended last year.
