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.

Rodman definitely needs help. But more than rehab for his drug addiction & alcohol abuse. He needs voice lessons as no one can understand him, but the Chinese. He needs a shrink to help him sort through his abnormal brain deterioration. He needs lots of help

Too bad there is no rehab for ugly and no prison for stink or crazy.

And next up he needs a lobotomy for all that stupidity he has been showing so well. Maybe he should go visit that buddy of his in North Korea, on a permanent basis.

This guy has always been a clown ever since his playing days, how the commies in N. Korea even took him serious is beyond me.

Maybe his friend Kim Jong-Ugly will send him some love letters to console him while he's in rehab.

He needs to enter rehab for his lips. When he talks it's like he has a mouth of a motorbike

Not that the guy hasn't had a drinking problem in the past, but it sounds like they told him to take this rehab route or else face consequences. The US Government doesn't want him meddling in foreign affairs with a bogeyman dictator.

That dumb nigwhop got paid a lot of money with every other ball player to go there either by North Korea or China... This guy is full of **** like all the other people lying. Heck he was talking **** on Asians the whole trip just not to their faces.... Some blacks are just big time racists towards Asians heck Asians are racist to their own kind as we'll just like any other race. Michael Jordan helped his party guy friend out again get some more fame or something Jordan and magic are like the 2 richest bball players out there making a **** more after ball then while playing the other chips a hoy so called athletes are hella jealous anyways just how it's set up right now

The man has a mental disease too. Rehab will do nothing just like every other time. He needs serious mental help. I think the North Korea thing was a bit over the top.

Rehab won't make up for how he treated the kenneth bae question/situation.. Rodman's an embarrassment and stupidity is his addiction, not drugs or alcohol..
