Octomom Nadya Suleman joined at rehab by her father Ed Doud

nadya-suleman-octomom-gi.jpgWhen we think of family bonding, rehab isn't the ideal location that comes to mind -- but when you've got 14 kids, it might be the only option for some peace and quiet. "Octomom" Nadya Suleman checked in to the Chapman House Rehabilitation Center last week, seeking treatment for her Xanax dependency. Now her father, Ed Doud, has checked in to the same facility.

Doud is participating in a 28-day program after living for decades with a drinking problem, according to TMZ. The father and daughter are thus far being kept apart in the institution so that they don't interfere with each other's recovery process, but once they've detoxed and stabilized they are expected to join each other for family therapy with counselors.

After Michael Lohan, Lindsay Lohan's father, claimed that he staged an intervention to get Suleman into rehab, the porn star and infamous mother released a statement from rehab. "I chose to seek treatment after consulting with my manager regarding my recent use of Xanax, which was prescribed by my physician for panic attacks," she wrote. "There were no other people involved with me entering treatment other than my manager and myself. There was no intervention that took place. I am working in therapy every day with my doctors and therapists regarding the origin of these attacks so as not to have to rely on medications to handle it. I am paying for my own treatment; I am finding my voice here."
