    Is Charlie Sheen ready to go off the deep end, or did that ship already sail?

    One addiction specialist reached by FOX411 is even fearing for Sheen’s life after hearing the actor’s radio rant on Thursday in which he went after the producer of “Two and a Half Men,” Alcoholics Anonymous, and ex-wife Brooke Mueller.

    “He’s holed up in the Bahamas with two porn stars, drinking and using drugs and thinking that he has everything under control. I just hope he doesn’t die,” Beverly Hills-based addiction expert Marty Brenner, who does not treat Sheen, tells FOX411. “It’s taken down bigger stars than him. There’s no way the body can last that long—your body has to give in. The body starts falling apart and deteriorating.”

    After hearing Sheen’s rambling interview with radio host Alex Jones, Brenner believes that the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star is still using drugs and alcohol.

    “In that audio tape, does Charlie sound coherent, lucid? No. If it were up to me, I would send him to a doctor to get a brain scan to see what’s going on, what parts have been affected, and what needs to be rebuilt,” Brenner said. “He sounds delusional. If you do that much cocaine, crack, drinking, pills, alcohol—and he’s done a combination of a lot of stuff—you lose your marbles. I’m being serious. That’s the only way I can really phrase it.”

    Sheen denied he was drinking or on drugs, telling gossip site he’d come over to their offices and have his blood and urine tested.

    Brenner believes that Sheen needs to be committed to a medical facility—if and when he returns from the Bahamas.

    “No one has really helped Charlie. He’s never had a consistent length of time where anybody has worked with him and his underlying issues—his anger. I mean, he did rehab at home—and that doesn’t work. It’s self-sabotage,” Brenner said. “His issues need to be addressed by true professionals—a psychiatrist, a medical team, the whole nine yards. He should be put away on a 5150 hold.”

    Sheen’s only hope may be his family.

    “Look at Britney Spears—when her father took conservatorship, she got her act together,” explains Brenner. “No one has done that with Charlie. I hope his father intervenes and that he gets the help that he needs—otherwise, he may die.”
