Octomom's Xanax Addiction Sends Her to Rehab

octomom takes xanaxHere’s some news, everybody … Octomom is stressed out! I mean, duh. Most of us would be with 14 young kids. Reportedly, Nadya Suleman was so stressed that she began taking Xanax to deal. Xanax is hugely addictive, and sure enough, Octomom got herself hooked. Her rep confirms that the multiple-mom has checked into a rehab facility to get off the drug. So who’s holding down the fort with the youngins?

TMZ reports that Nadya has checked herself into a treatment facility in Southern California. Her rep says:


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.

And I guess all of that porn came in handy too, because sources say that Nadya, thanks to her porn career, had the cash for the center. BUT. The rehab facility offered to pick up the tab anyway! Hey, I guess there’s cons to having 14 kids (stress) and pros (you become famous and people pick up your drug treatment tab).

Apparently Nadya’s children will be taken care of by a couple of friends and three nannies while their mom is away for a month. And here we thought Octomom had been doing so well

Seriously, say what you like about Octomom – and there’s a LOT to say – it’s good she’s getting help. It’s sad that the kids won’t have their mom around for a month, but it’s better than having a mom around who is hazed out on Xanax.

Do you think Octomom is doing the right thing for herself and for her children?
