Heather Locklear's hospitalization on Thursday night reportedly came after the actress ingested a mixture of drugs and alcohol.
While a rep for Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center tells PEOPLE that Locklear, 50, was discharged from their hospital Friday evening, leaving in the care of her family, she was reportedly "out of control" when her sister dialed 911 night prior, according to Entertainment Tonight.
"Heather became a different person on drugs," a source tells the show, adding that Locklear, who was spotted on Tuesday night at an L.A. Lakers game, may be heading into rehab shortly.

There may be an extra place setting around Jack Wagner's dinner table this holiday season – and not just because he and longtime girlfriend Heather Locklear are no longer together.
Wagner, 52, discovered earlier this month that he has a long-lost 23-year-old daughter from a "fling" he had with the girl's mother in the late 1980s, TMZ reports.
The girl, named Carrie, introduced herself to Wagner backstage at a Nov. 4 concert in Boca Raton, Fla. where the actor was performing with Rick Springfield.
Less than two weeks after the encounter, Wagner and Locklear announced they had called off their engagement, saying planning their wedding was not allowing them enough time to spend with their children.

They didn't get a happy ending together like the characters they played on Melrose Place, but it seems to be an amicable breakup for Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner.
They "still love each other very much," Wagner, 52, says, according to TMZ.com. Their decision to call off the engagement, which they announced Tuesday, was in the interest of their respective families.
The actor says they didn't have enough time to spend with their children because they were planning their wedding. He and Locklear also decided, he adds, that they didn't want to blend their families because their kids were too young and it would be disruptive.

When Heather Locklear announced in August that she was getting hitched to her longtime boyfriend, actor Jack Wagner, she wasn't the only one happy about the upcoming nuptials.
Her 14-year-old daughter, Ava – dad is rocker Richie Sambora – is equally thrilled about her mom's big day.
"Ava was so excited when we told her," Locklear, 50, says in PEOPLE's new special issue Gorgeous At Any Age.
"She hugged Jack, said congratulations, and she immediately wanted to see the ring. Then she ran and Facebooked her new stepbrother."
"I want her to do what makes her happy," explains Ava. "That's the main point."
