Octomom

CHECKS INTO REHAB

Kids Left with Nannies

Nadya Suleman has checked herself into rehab for a prescription drug problem ... leaving her 14 kids without a mother for 30 straight days ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for Octomom tells us ... Nadya admitted herself into the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in Southern California over the weekend after acknowledging she's become dependent on Xanax ... an anti-anxiety drug ... which she began taking to "deal with stress."

Suleman's rep tells us, "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.”

TMZ has obtained photos of Nadya on her way to the treatment center (above).

As for the kids ... we're told Nadya is using 3 nannies and 2 friends to divvy up the child care duties. She also has a driver to take the kids to and from school.

Neither Nadya's mother nor father have been tapped to care for the kids.

We're told Nadya can afford to pay for treatment by herself -- because she's been making a ton of money from her porn career -- but the rehab facility offered to pick up the tab anyway.

This woman knew there would be stressed out when she had 8 little babies implanted in her. A mom can get stress out with just one baby. I get that she needs to be off of meds, but really? Now the kids are with nannies bc there is no Daddy... and nannies scare the crap out of me now, with the crazy stories I hear... I hope all her little kids are safe and sound and pray she will grow up and be a mom when she gets out

Not at all likely that people are buying that porn video en masse, especially when it's online for free. If she's making money off of selling sex, it's probably with her mouth.

She probably feels like Lady Gaga with all the "little monsters" clamoring for her.

My Dr. prescribed Xanax for me for 15 years and I got myself off of it on my own at home. I wonder how long she has been on it, this woman is a sham. She needs to get real and be a mom, my god!!!!

Benzodiazepines like Xanax (others are: klonopin, valium and ativan) can cause physical dependency and withdrawal (even with short-term low dose use), one does not need to abuse the drug to have a problem. Unfortunately 30 days in a detox will not help this problem, because they will taper her off fast and add other drugs to combat the withdrawal. if someone is physically dependent the way to taper off benzos is very gradually, if you go fast the withdrawal will be intense and may cause seizure http://www.benzo.org.uk/manual/bzcha00.htm

The other drugs used can also dependency and withdrawal.

I wish TMZ would stop covering this woman. Giving birth to 14 children you can't afford to feed without showing off your hoo-ha shouldn't make anyone famous.

The only headline about Octomom I look forward to is when she dies of a drug overdose and those kids can go to a proper home.

Those kids are gonna have real mother issues. She's a media whore and an actual whore. Now, she's addicted to drugs. It disgust me that people act like her. GOOD THING SHE'S GETTING "HELP." I guarantee it's her last time at rehab.

SHE IS NOT IN REHAB. She is in Tennessee shooting a spoof wedding video with Cledus Judd and she has been there all week staying at the Econolodge in Pidgeon Forge. She is a complete LIAR, why do you keep giving her the benefit of the doubt?
