In keeping with the prescribed trajectory for reality stars, Octomom has checked herself into rehab to get treatment for an addiction to Xanax.

TMZ reports that the mother of 14 left her kids with three nannies and two friends as she headed to Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center, which has locations in Orange and Tustin.

She reportedly began taking the pills to deal with the anxiety and stress of her life, and now wants to get off them and learn how to cope without medication.

The facility reportedly offered to pay for her stay there, even though she's been banking between doing porn and stripping.
