She’s got 14 children to care for, but Nadya Suleman is taking some time to sort out her own problems. According to reports, Suleman, aka Octomom, has checked into a rehab center to seek help for a prescription drug problem.
TMZ.com are reporting that Octomom checked herself into the Southern Californian Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center over the weekend.
A spokesperson for Octomom told the website that she had become too dependent on the anti-anxiety medication Xanax, which she had been taking to help her ‘deal with stress’.
The website quotes the spokesperson as saying:
‘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.’
While Octomom is being treated in rehab, she has reportedly employed a team of three nannies, and two friends to help look after her children – dividing up duties including transporting the massive brood to and from school.
TMZ also claim that Octomom is not paying for the treatment herself, as the rehab center has offered to pick up the bill.
But that’s not to say that Octomom couldn’t afford the treatment, as she has earned herself a lot of money through a huge pay-out from her recent adult film Octomom: Home Alone.
Previously on the verge of bankruptcy, Octomom was facing homelessness after struggling with mortgage payments on her old house for 18 months.
But thanks to the pay-out, Suleman was recently able to purchase a new property for her brood – a six bedroom, 5,000 square foot properly in Palmdale, California.
