ORANGE, Calif., Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Nadya Suleman, remembered as "Octomom" for giving birth to octuplets in January 2009, has entered a drug rehabilitation program, a representative said.

Her children will be cared for by three nannies, two friends and a driver while she is undergoing treatment at the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in Orange, Calif., for a dependency on the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, TMZ reported Tuesday.

"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. Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be," said Suleman's representative.
