The controversial mother to fourteen kids (who famously gave birth to octuplets in 2009) sought treatment at the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center over the weekend to address her Xanax dependency.

"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," her rep shared. "Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be."

Suleman has reportedly left her children with three nannies, as well as a couple of friends, who have all agreed to help care for her brood during the 30-day program.

Though she filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, TMZ also reports that Suleman's new, thriving porn career has left her with plenty of cash on hand to pay for rehab and make sure her children are properly looked after in her absence.
