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.

I'm actually glad she went. Even though she's not technically a 'celebrity', its good to finally have the addictive nature of anti-anxiety medication shown to everyone. I hope she gets better, it was hard for me, and I never knew how addictive the medicine I took for panic attacks could be. It's a hard road, I know that. Wish her the best!

What sort of idiot announces to the world (or just TMZ) that they are going to rehab and takes pictures of themselves before rehab to send off to TMZ.

Yeah Nadya, you seem sooo torn up about all of this! Aren't you?! Smirking at the camera?

Say cheese fame wh're cause I DOUBT you'll be smiling in 24-72 hrs!!

Benzo w/d's are comparable to Delirium Tremens (a horrendous form of alcohol w/d) and are considered THE most horrible w/d's along side DT's!!!

Depending on how much you're quitting, and if you're quitting cold turkey, you will be going through hell soon! So mug it up for the cameras now honey! Pretty sure that SMIRK is gonna be wiped CLEAN off your face soon!

What is wrong with her. She says how much she loves her children but then she goes off and leaves them for a month to do rehab. Didnt she know Xanax is a drug you can become addicted too? Hmm. I hope she does give the kids up for adoption. Be the best thing that could happen to them.

Im not surprised she let this happen. 14 children is a lot for anyone to handle especially alone like she is. Didnt she know that Xanax is addictive? One of the worse drugs there is for addiction. I hope she does let the kids be adopted by familes that can take care of them. Best thing that could happen to them

First of all these are NOT prescription Xanax. She was using street drugs just the same as her cocaine. Too bad CPS didn't step in while she was "using" over the past 2-3 years. BTW, did anyone do a background check on the "nannies"? Could be that one of them is her supplier.

OCTOMOM ADMITS SHE WAS ON A ****TAIL OF DRUGS WHEN SHE SIGNED CONSENT FORM FOR ALL THOSE BABIES:

LOS ANGELES -- Nadya Suleman on Thursday blamed the creation of the "Octomom character" that she has become synonymous with in part on a California fertility specialist who, she said, had her sign a consent form while she was drugged.

The California woman said she did not mean to have eight children in January 2009, in addition to the six she already had.

But while she admitted she did want more children, she insisted she was in no condition to understand a form Dr. Michael Kamrava put in front of her before implanting 12 embryos.

"He wrote something, he gave it to me to sign," Suleman told HLN's Dr. Drew Pinsky on Thursday night.

She said she was then on "a ****tail of drugs" including Valium at the Beverly Hills doctor's office because her uterus was contracting. "I signed it, and I didn't read it."

Kamrava lost his California medical license July 1 after state officials ruled that he committed "gross negligence" with "repeated negligent acts, for an excessive number of embryo transfers" into Suleman in 2008, the state's medical board wrote.
