Kids Left with Nannies

10/30/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 sorry but I can't find any sympathy for Octomom. What the hell did she think she was getting, having all these kids?? And now she's going away for 30 days?? Life is tough!!! Kinda smells like somebody needs some media attention......and those poor kids.

She will never be a good mother - she intentionally had 14 kids she cannot afford just for the sole purpose of becoming famous.
If she really felt the need to get treatment, does she really need cameras to do***ent it?

How convenient - Nadya decides to check herself into rehab just hours after she was busted in the RadarOnline article about her drunkeness and drug use. Fast damage control by manager Gina Rodriguez, who is now mouthing fake platitudes about how Nadya just wants to be "the best mother she can be." Oh, BS!!! Nadya has been drinking heavily and using drugs for months, if not years -- and just TODAY she decides to try rehab, after putting her kids at risk all that time? Manager G.R. has known about this dangerous behavior all along and did NOTHING until she had the chance to turn it into a publicity opportunity by calling up TMZ and having them film Nadya departing for rehab. She should bear some responsibility for putting the kids at risk too. This is nothing but a big stinky publicity stunt. I feel sure that Nadya and G.R. are hard at work at this moment lining up paid interviews so Nadya can tearfully talk about her substance abuse problems. (Do you really think she will go 30 days without giving an interview?) Next it will be Celebrity Rehab and another big paycheck for OctoMess. Please, will somebody HELP THOSE CHILDREN? Forget Nadya --let her spend the rest of her life in some free rehab ranch if she wants to -- but just get those children away from her and into safe homes! They have suffered enough.

The question people should be demanding answers for is why this weird ass **** still has her kids.

Reading this story breaks my heart. She is a person, a being with a soul who has a life history and probably a lot of pain that she went through. The POWERS THAT BE who control ALL media have been on a campaign to break this woman's spirit since it was revealed she gave birth to octuplets. If she fit the stereotype and had a husband, it would be a different story in the media. No surprise Nadya has resulted to xanax. I applaud her for getting the help she so deserves and for being so strong against all these odds. This constant bashing by the media has created so much hate. If this doesn't stop don't be surprised if she commits suicide and everyone participating in hating her will carry that karma. I am shocked how people treat her. The sole purpose of the media coverage is to CREATE HATE. Don't keep falling for it people. Wake the hell up!!! Just open your eyes.... pressuring her financially to do porn is like a form a rape. WAKE THE HELL UP and find your HEART people. Don't let THEM steal that away from you.

I hope she gets off and gets a break and can be the mom she wants to be. She really hasn't had much help and to be honest, I needed a break with one kid at times. I hope this all works out for her.

I would be addicted to xanax too if I had all those kids! Give the woman a break. Yes, she made a terrible mistake by getting pregnant with all those kids but think of having to work a porn career to have to keep them up! It is kinda sad all the way around. At least the rehab is picking up the bill. She could be taking much worse drugs.
