Catherine has been dealing with the disorder for quite some time and now she joined a 30-day program where doctors will monitor her. Her representative told People magazine: ”Catherine has proactively checked into a health care facility. Previously Catherine has said that she is committed to periodic care in order to manage her health in an optimum manner.”

The star’s friend also commented on her checking into a treatment center: ”There was no big problem. This was just a good time to do it. She is in between projects. This has always been part of the plan. She would manage her health. She is vigilant about it.”
