Miley Cyrus‘ mom, Tish Cyrus, is desperate to get her wild-child daughter into rehab.

“Tish believe’s that Miley’s bizarre behavior, angry outbursts and bouts of depression are due to drug and alcohol abuse,” an insider tells Life & Style. But the 22-year-old, who’s very open about her drug use, doesn’t think she has a problem, even though the insider says her doctors have urged her to get treatment.

Fearing the worst, Tish, 48, recently reached out to Miley’s exes, Liam Hemsworth, 25, and Patrick Schwarzenegger, 21, to help stage an intervention.

“Tish knows how much Miley loved them both, so she asked Liam and Patrick to call Miley separately and convince her to check into a 30-day program,” says another source.

“If Tish’s plan works,” says the source, “Miley will get help before she causes permanent damage to herself.”
