It appears Nadya ‘Octomom’ Suleman is not alone at rehab. The mother-of-14′s father, Ed Doud Suleman, is reportedly getting help at the very same treatment facility as his troubled daughter.

Doud, 71, is said to have checked into Chapman House Rehabilitation Center last week for ‘alcohol addiction.’

According to TMZ, ‘Ed’s alcohol addiction goes back decades.’ But he was reportedly inspired by his daughter to clean up his act.

Over the years Ed has been supportive of his daughter. After she gave birth to octuplets in 2009, he said he would return to his native Iraq to work as a translator and driver to financially support Nadya and her large brood.

Suleman went to rehab last month, prompting a string of reports about her health.On Thursday she set the record straight by releasing a statement from the treatment facility.

‘I chose to seek treatment after consulting with my manager regarding my recent use of Xanax, which was prescribed by my physician for panic attacks,’ Suleman said in a statement released to E! News.

She added: ‘There were no other people involved with me entering treatment other than my manager and myself.

‘There was no intervention that took place. I am working in therapy every day with my doctors and therapists regarding the origin of these attacks so as not to have to rely on medications to handle it.’
