Dennis Rodman is in rehab to treat his never-ending addiction to booze ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to Rodman tell us the 52-year old basketball Hall of Famer checked into a treatment center a few days ago in New Jersey ... on the heels of his disastrous trip to North Korea.

We're told Rodman is "beyond exhausted and overwhelmed" ... and he will be in treatment for 30 days.

The Worm has had multiple stints in rehab. Dennis checked into a Florida treatment facility in 2008 ... and in 2009 he appeared on the third season of "Celebrity Rehab." He relapsed shortly after the show premiered.

Rodman blamed booze for his explosion during a recent CNN interview from N. Korea.

Crazy as a bedbug, but at least he is making an effort. I've lost family and friends to alcoholism so I support him in this. He will obviously need all the help he can get.

WOW, THIS IS THE BEST NEWS BY FAR I HAVE HAD OUTSIDE OF PEOPLE I KNOW THAT IS. I MET RODMAN AT A PARTY(BIRTHDAY) AND HE WAS INTOXICATED! I HAVE NOTHING BAD TO SAY ABOUT HIM, I GREW UP A LAKER FAN BUT, ALWAYS WISHED DENNIS WAS A LAKER, HIS FIRE AND TENACITY WAS IMPREGNABLE. I HAD NO CLUE HE WOULD HAVE SOME OF THE ISSUES HE HAS BUT, I REALLY HOPE HONESTLY HE GETS BETTER AND LEAVE ALCOHOL ALONE. IT CLEARLY IS WHATS MADE HIM DO THINGS THE PUBLIC QUESTIONS. WHEN I MET DENNIS HE SEEMED NICE BUT, LOST AND MISUNDERSTOOD IS HOW ID DESCRIBE HIM. I FELT HE WAS PARTYING AND DRINKING TO GET AWAY. FROM WHAT? I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO ESCAPE BUT, HE SEEMED NICE TO ME ULTIMATELY. I HOPE HIS STORY DOESNT TURN INTO A TRAGIC ONE AND IM PROUD OF HIM HOWEVER HE DECIDED TO GET HELP. GOOD LUCK DENNIS "WORM" RODMAN! LGNM
