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

The 19-year-old model took to her Twitter account on Monday night 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.

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 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."
