After a series of Tweets, Ireland Baldwin has confirmed that she is now in rehab. According to the model’s Twitter account, the reason for quick at the SOBA Recovery Center is to seek treatment for “emotional trauma,” although some reports are conflicting that information.
It was earlier this evening that Baldwin, now 19, wrote a series of Tweets to her followers explaining the move to SOBA, which is a very popular drug and alcohol treatment facility located in Malibu, California. The center does handle psychological disorders as well as addiction disorders and is a popular place for stars to check-in while they are seeking help.
Baldwin wrote to her followers, “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 needed 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.”
Baldwin is the daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin. A few outlets are claiming that Baldwin didn’t actually enter the facility willingly, rather that she was checked in by someone in her family to handle a substance problem. It should be noted that no one in the family, or Ireland herself, has confirmed those reports. At the time this article was written, neither Alec Baldwin or her mother Kim Basinger released a statement on the matter.
