Octomom Nadya Suleman Checks Into Rehab

Octomom Nadya Suleman has checked into an unidentified rehabilitation center as she battles an addiction to the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.

The mother of 14 children has entered a 30-day in-patient program, Suleman’s rep tells TMZ.

“Nadya wanted to get off the Xanax she was prescribed by her doctor and learn to deal with her stress, exhaustion and anxiety with professional help with a team of doctors. Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be.”

Suleman — who has struggled to support her octuplets financially since their birth in 2009 — can afford the care thanks to her budding new porn career, but the facility has offered to pick up the tab just the same. Three nannies and two friends will care for the children while she is away and a driver will shuttle them back and forth to school.
