Courtney Love, who faces drug charges stemming from an arrest and an overdose in October, has checked herself into a rehab facility.

The widow of Kurt Cobain has been at the Wavelengths live-in facility in Malibu, California since 21 November. According to sources close to the singer, she is making progress.

MTV reports that Love's lawyer, Ron Fischetti, said he hopes the rehab stint will not only help the singer dry out, but also help resolve her legal issues.

Love is facing drug possession charges following her arrest for being under the influence of a controlled substance on 2 October.
