Elvis Presley's daughter has checked into The Hills Rehabilitation Center, a luxurious retreat in the Hollywood Hills which overlooks Los Angeles.

A month's stay at the treatment center costs $400,000.

Back in 2003, Presley told Paper Magazine that she abused alcohol and drugs as a teenager, but recovered with the help of Scientology.

"[I used] cocaine, sedatives, pot and drinking — all at the same time. I just couldn’t be sober,” Presley revealed.

"I don’t know how I lived through it." 

A source close to the singer told Us Weekly that she is "doing OK, but needed to get this under control."

Last month, Presley filed for divorce from Michael Lockwood, her husband of ten years.  She filed for full custody of the couple's twins, Finley and Harper, and asked that Lockwood have "monitored" visitation, according to TMZ.

The National Enquirer broke the story a few days ago, alleging that their destructive marriage caused Presley to fall off the wagon.

Theirs “was not a healthy one and a lot of people thought she was self-medicating to deal with her pain,” a friend told the tabloid.

“Michael was verbally insulting and, pals say, would fat-shame and belittle Lisa Marie.  They had knock-down, drag-out fights that left Lisa Marie feeling as if he’d pummeled her.”

Lockwood, who has worked with Carly Simon and Fiona Apple, was accused by Presley's lawyer of ripping her off during their marriage.

“He apparently was in charge of her assets throughout the marriage and didn’t do what he should have done on a fiduciary basis,” Litz told People Magazine.

“The couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, though at one point they did draw up a postnuptial agreement.”

“He took advantage of her."
