Nick Gordon is putting his life back together after checking into rehab, sources close to Bobbi Kristina Brown tell People.com. The 25-year-old sought treatment after an intervention on the Dr. Phil show last month, and is now doing well.
"Nick is responding well to rehab treatment with no relapses," the source says. "The quiet time is good for him. He needed it."
Gordon, 25, admitting to drowning his pain in alcohol after not being able to visit Brown after she was hospitalized on January 31, after being found unresponsive in a bathtub. The stress of his feud with Brown's father, Bobby Brown, and a criminal investigation centered around Gordon over Bobbi's condition added to his trauma.
"Nick is a special person with many temptations and needs to be in a place where he can continue to heal and grow," the source adds. "He should stay for a long time — as long as he will allow."
The source adds that Gordon may continue his rehabilitation at a halfway house once he leaves treatment. "The best thing for Nick is that he is out of the way, out of the limelight," the source says. "This way he can continue the process to improve himself and move forward in a better life. It is a blessing that he is in rehab."
Bobbi Kristina, 22, remains on life support and has not regained consciousness since she was admitted to the hospital over two months ago. Her family continues to keep vigil at her bedside and pray for her recovery.
