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.

He's a C.I.A. agent. This is just part of the cover-up.

Somehow I just don't think booze is the sole problem. Nor drugs either.

Waste of time and money (for whoever is paying for it.) He's said he gets paid to drink and has no intention of stopping. Dr. Drew's joke of a show was a way for him to earn some money, that's all. He's just hiding now because he made a bigger fool of himself than usual with his latest grab for attention.

He needs to go to rehab for his face. Maybe a taxper funded voice box-ectomy. That means surgically take away his voice for all you idiot savants.

He should be ordered to stay with his new best friend...he's very creepy to look at, his skin looks like fish scales for some reason.

Does it go beyond alcohol abuse? Does he maybe have a defiant personality disorder?

Even when he played basketball for Chicago, he always was defiant and needed revenge and to lash out, why?

I'm curious what his upbringing was like and parents?

I think a neurologist should do tests on his brain, to see if he did frontal lobe damage to it from so many years of excess drinking?

It is as if some things just do not register for him in the common sense department or the knowing right vs wrong area of the brain.

Maybe a brain scan should be done and I don't say this to be mean or funny.

Being serious. There has to be some sort of cell damage up there after all of that alcohol abuse.

This traitorous drunk needs to be detained, along with the rest of his traveling minstrel traitors, to Gitmo. Why is the press giving this malcontent any facetime? He checked into rehab? Is this an excuse for distracting attention that this assf@*k just flipped off the whole USA and got away with it? Cohorting with a hostile enemy of the USA? Whats this garbage regarding rehab? This is totally schizophrenic I can't even believe he isn't detained, and the other malcontented traitors with him, oh yeah, he's a black, I forgot
