Demi Moore‘s whereabouts are still top secret, but the troubled actress is seeking help from none other than spiritual guru Deepak Chopra, a source tells PEOPLE.

Moore, 49, has not been spotted since her health crisis began in January, but another source confirms she’s in a treatment facility.

It’s not surprising that Moore would turn to Chopra, who has authored more than 64 books on spirituality and healing. The actress and Chopra go way back; in 1996, she visited him in India. She has also served on the board of advisers to his healing center, which is located in Carlsbad, Calif., 90 minutes south of Los Angeles.

Moore once told Britain’s Mirror that Chopra’s book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success “is my bible.”

“It is a practical guide to the fulfillment of your dreams,” she is quoted as saying. “Deepak is also teaching me how to live healthily and longer.”

For his part, Chopra has attracted a devoted following in Hollywood and beyond. “[Celebrities] call me after they read my books and come to my seminars,” Chopra, who counted Michael Jackson among his clients, once told Entertainment Weekly. But “less than one percent of the attention is from Hollywood. Ninety-nine percent is from the general populace.”
