Melanie Griffith enters rehab

Melaniegriffith_290 Melanie Griffith is getting help again.

The 52-year-old actress checked into the Cirque Lodge facility in Utah "to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy," her rep tells People, adding, "This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago."

It's Griffith's third visit to rehab in recent years. The actress, known for her breakout role in "Working Girl," has struggled with substance abuse problems -- particularly with cocaine, alcohol and pain medications -- for years.

Both husband Antonio Banderas (whose name she has tattooed on her arm) and ex-husband Don Johnson have supported her efforts to fight addiction.

Griffith can next be seen in an upcoming episode of "Nip/Tuck" playing Brandie Henry, the mother of ex-pornstar daughter Kimber ( Kelly Carlson).
