Alexis Neiers is planning to make a career out of this rehab thing.

Not because the former Pretty Wild star, who has a sister who's been battling her own demons as well, isn't interested in getting better.

According to her mom, Neiers has 90 days of sobriety and is ready to start putting her troubled past to good use...

"In two months, she will start taking courses toward getting a degree in drug counseling," her mother, Andrea Arlington, exclusively tells E! News. "It's going to be really great and she's really excited."

Now that's a makeover show we'd watch!

Perhaps Arlington can breathe more than one sigh of relief these days.

She also confirmed that Neiers' sister Tess Taylor has transferred to outpatient treatment in Beverly Hills after completing 30 days of in-patient rehab in Malibu to treat an addiction to opiates. Meaning, Taylor has not checked out of rehab completely, as some reports have implied.

"She wanted to go back to Hollywood, because she wants to work in Hollywood and practice being sober in Hollywood," Arlington says, explaining that Taylor had the option of either finding another sober-living arrangement in Malibu or seeking outpatient treatment elsewhere in L.A.

Meanwhile, Neiers has nine and a half months to go of a year-long sentence in residential treatment, not the most horrible punishment after getting busted for black-tar heroin possession while being on probation for her role in the so-called Bling Ring burglaries. Her next court hearing is next month.
