Ireland Baldwin is seeking treatment for “emotional trauma,” she revealed Monday on Twitter.

Baldwin, 19, checked herself into SOBA Recovery Center, a drug and alcohol treatment facility in Malibu, California, that specializes in psychological disorders and addiction.

In a series of Tweets, the daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin said she “needed a breather” and time to work on herself.

Although a new report from Radar Online claims that Baldwin was “unwillingly” checked into rehab by her family for substance abuse issues, a source close to the model denies that claim.

“She’s not using, this is not drug-related, she voluntarily checked herself in,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She’s just been in some tough situations lately, and it s gotten a bit stressful and overwhelming, so she s just being proactive. She s in there to get the tools she needs to move forward in a positive direction.”

Baldwin also denies having alcohol problems.

“‘Intensive partying’ haha,” she Tweeted before revealing that she’d checked into SOBA. “Apparently I’m in rehab for intensive partying soooo I’m just going to lay pretty low for a bit and maybe get some frozen yogurt.”

A source tells PEOPLE that Alec Baldwin remains extremely protective of his daughter and does not want to make a public comment yet.
