Paul Warner/Getty Images(PALMDALE, Calif.) — The Octomom is in rehab. Nadya Suleman checked into the Chapman House Treatment Center last week to deal with “anxiety, exhaustion and stress” stemming from an addiction to Xanax.

“Ms. Suleman has been taking Xanax that was prescribed by her doctor to deal with her anxiety but she felt she needed a treatment program to help with her recovery,” her representative said in a statement to ABC News. “She will be in treatment for 28 days or more if needed.”

The rep noted, “Although the rehab offered to treat her at no charge, Ms. Suleman opted to pay for the program.”

Suleman reportedly left her 14 children in the care of three nannies and a couple of friends. She filed for bankruptcy earlier this year but appears to have come into cash after launching her adult film career. Earlier this month, she gave the website Rumorfix a tour of her new, 5,000-square-foot Palmdale, Calif. home.
