Ireland Baldwin has checked herself into rehab

Ireland Baldwin has checked herself into rehab to deal with "emotional trauma".

The 19-year-old model took to her Twitter account last night (13.04.15) to reveal she's checked into Malibu's Soba Recovery Center, a drug and alcohol treatment facility that helps deal with the underlying psychological causes of addiction.

She wrote: "I checked myself into Soba for two weeks to just get away for a little bit. I'm not much a party cat but I am here deal with...

"Some emotional trauma and getting the intensive therapy I needed in order to recover. Someday I'll feel ready to share my story...

"Openly without feeling the way I do. Right now I just need a breather. I needed a chance to work on myself and gather all the tools...

"I need to overcome everything that I had been through and rid myself of all the pain I locked away in unreachable places. (sic)"

The blonde beauty - who is the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger - decided to go public with her decision to seek treatment after it was reported her mother had checked her into the facility for substance abuse "after partying non-stop".

Ireland mockingly wrote: "'Intensive partying' haha.

"Apparently I'm in rehab for intensive partying soooo I'm just going to lay pretty low for a bit and maybe get some frozen yogurt (sic)."

Ireland is said to have sought help after growing up while her parents were going through a nasty public split.

A source close to Ireland told the New York Post newspaper's PageSix: "Ireland has voluntarily checked herself into a treatment facility. She has the full support of her family and friends. This is not drug related, it has been a stressful time for her lately and she hopes this treatment will give he the tools she needs to move forward."
