According to TMZ.com, so-called Octomom, Nadya Suleman has checked herself into rehab at Chapman House Rehab in Orange.

The celebrity website says that the pseudo-celebrity checked herself in over the weekend, entering a 30-day program. She says she has become dependent on anti-anxiety drug Xanax, which she began taking to “deal with stress.”

“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 told TMZ. “Nadya wanted to deal with her issues and make sure she is the best mother she can be.”

As with all patients admitted into rehab, their identity cannot be discussed.

Chapman Rehab is run by a team of specialists, led by America’s Parenting Coach, Tim Chapman.

Three Delaware teenagers are hospitalized in critical condition after ingesting a large number of prescription pills and over-the-counter medications.

The girls called 9-1-1 saying they had popped pills.

The pills consumed include Tylenol, Xanax, used to treat for anxiety and panic disorders; Zoloft, used to treat depression and panic attacks; codeine, a pain reliever; and another medication used to treat Parkinson’s disease.

It’s scary when kids take pills like it is candy. Luckily, one of these teens was able to call for help.

Parents need to remember to lock up all medications, and talk to their kids about the dangers of drugs.

Just because pills are legal, does not mean that they are safe to take without a doctor’s oversight.

The creators of the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits have been warning parents for quite some time, that there’s a simple three step process from you being loose about pills at home, to your teen becoming a heroin addict.

Step 1: You leave unattended pills at the home.

Step 2: You son or daughter polish them off, creating an opiate addiction.

Step 3: Pills are too expensive and too hard to find, so your loved one moves onto heroin, a much cheaper and purer high.

Think that it’s too outrageous to happen to your loved one? Talk to the parent of a heroin addict. It all starts the same way. Very few people decide one day, I’m going to try heroin. Heroin is a need that typically derives from an opiate addiction.

MSNBC is bringing attention to a problem that treatment specialists, counselors, and regular American families have been coping with for years.

This isn’t just some event to make a government agency look good.   The DEA and law enforcement agencies across America are teaming up with volunteers to collect unused and expires prescription drugs.    These neglected pills can often fall in the wrong hands, when thrown away in the trash, or just left sitting in an unlocked medicine cabinet.

This event is about saving lives.   Numerous children first experience drugs by sneaking a pill from the family medicine chest.   If you have unwanted medications in your home, please dispose of them at a center near you.    You can visit the DEA’s website to find a location in your neighborhood.

The Teensavers Team hopes that everyone will participate in this event.    Proper disposal is key.   Flushing pills down the toilet or sink contaminates the water supply.    Throwing pills in the trash, leaves them for a junky who will raid the garbage curbside or in the dump.

If you want to know if your child has been taking prescription medications without your knowledge, we have a compete line of Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits available on the drugstore.com.     You can click HERE for a link to the store.

The Teensavers Team often warns parents about the growing problem
regarding teens stealing pills from the medicine cabinet.   While these
adolescent opiate addictions can often start at home, there are other
ways teens get pills.


teen may not start pilfering pills until first being exposed to the
medications elsewhere.  Perhaps they got a Xanax or Oxycontin from a
friend.   Adults with good intentions are not always the source of the
rising prescription abuse problems.

Case in point: A 71 year-old
Orange County doctor, with two practices in Los Angeles is expected to
plead guilty today to charges of prescribing unnecessary narcotics.
Prosecutors allege that Nazzar Al-Bussam wrote 60,000 prescriptions over
a four year span.   At the minimum, there are typically 20 pills per
prescription.   That’s means from 2007-2010, this doctor put 1.2 million
pills on the streets.

Those pills end up somewhere.   They’re
not ingested solely by 47-year-olds.   The pills filter their way into
the hands of adolescents.   It is good that the government is cracking
down on doctors who are writing fraudulent pills.   Parents can do all
they can to lock up pills, but when dealers are getting their hands on
hundreds of thousands of pills, the problem will still be there.



This client was using GHB, Meth, Xanax, Alcohol.  The combination of which could easily result in death.  You can see by watching this episode of Intervention, just how devastating drugs are to the once innocent girl.
This is a typical result of using drugs from adolescence forward.
I am saddened, but not discouraged by this episode. Treatment providers offer A 50% greater chance of recovery, simply by the client walking in the door.  Without help, a person has a .01% chance of recovery. Unfortunately, children suffer as dire consequence as the parent (addict).
