Mob Wives star Renee Graziano is seeking help during a troubling time.

The VH1 star has checked into rehab for depression at a treatment facility in Florida. She's reportedly expected to stay there for roughly a month.

Graziano's sister and Mob Wives creator, Jennifer Graziano, reportedly said, "She is getting treatment that stems from her depression and some things that she has to work out. She's been battling depression for a while and this kind of treatment kind of digs a little deeper than what she's done in the past."

She adds, "So, I'm hoping she stays as long as she needs."

While the direct reasons behind her decision to receive treatment is unknown at this time, this isn't the first time Graziano has been open about her struggle with depression. Roughly four years ago, Graziano checked into rehab for reasons that had nothing to do with substance abuse.

"It is not for any current drug or alcohol use of any kind," a rep for the star of VH1's Mob Wives said at the time. "Her choice to enter rehab was made entirely on her own. She has made this decision for the betterment of her son A.J. [Pagan]'s life, as well as to improve her physical, mental and spiritual health."

Along with her personal struggles, Graziano also had to mourn the loss of one of her great friends, and a co-star on the show, Big Ang.

The beloved Mob Wives star passed away earlier this year at age 55 after a battle with cancer. "It's heartbreaking," Graziano told E! News of the loss at the time. "We know her forever, so we lost a sister…it was more than friendship. It was a sisterhood."

E! News has reached out to Graziano's rep for comment.
