She wants him to check into the same £31,000-a-month clinic – Pine Grove in Hattiesburg, Mississippi – attended by golfer Tiger Woods after his 2010 cheating scandal.
Sharon, 63, who is set to return as a judge on The X Factor, told a longtime friend and neighbour rocker Ozzy, 67, is “squirming with remorse” over his reported fling with celebrity hair stylist Michelle Pugh, 45.
The friend said: “It’s true Sharon has spoken to a divorce lawyer and she is still as mad as hell.
“But she believes they can eventually recover from this if he is prepared to get proper help.
“She also wants them to attend marriage guidance counselling.
“Sharon loves Ozzy deeply but she isn’t going to let him off the hook.
“She hasn’t decided when she will move back in and the chances are she’ll leave him hanging for a while to teach him a lesson.”
Sharon kicked her husband of almost 34 years out of their mansion in Crescent Drive, Beverly Hills, within hours of reports of his alleged romance with Ms Pugh surfacing.
After 48 hours, however, she had packed and left.
He returned after two nights at the Four Seasons Hotel where, Sharon’s friends say, he spent most of the time bombarding her with calls begging forgiveness.
The couple appeared in public together last week to publicise this year’s Ozzfest heavy metal tour – which hits 53 US cities this summer.
But Sharon, who has been her husband’s manager for decades, looked uncomfortable when he attempted to hug her.
Ozzy is unlikely to enter rehab, whose recovery course was created by US sex addiction guru Dr Patrick Carnes, until after Ozzfest.
Blonde hairdresser Ms Pugh returned to her job as a stylist at the Meche Salon in Beverly Hills on Friday after several days in hiding after social media posts accused her of being a marriage wrecker.
She has refused to answer questions about her involvement with the rocker, who is 22 years her senior.
