It’s another chapter in the Amber Portwood story – she’s headed to rehab. After trying to commit suicide two weeks ago, it’s a relief that Amber is headed to rehab! The Teen Mom star has had a tumultuous couple of months, from facing jail time to fights with her baby-daddy. Keep reading to find out more about Amber’s trip to rehab.
There has been an outpouring of concern for Amber after fans learned she tried to commit suicide. “Help Support Amber Portwood,” is now a Facebook page where fans can post positive messages and lend their support to the MTV reality star. It’s unclear what exactly Amber is headed to rehab for. Her brother, Shawn Portwood, wanted to make it clear it was not for drugs. He posted this message on the Facebook page, “Best wishes to my sister while in rehab. For everyone who might not know, it is not for drugs btw.”
So what could Amber going to rehab for? Maybe it’s for anger management. Amber has been violent in the past with her on-and-off again boyfriend and baby-daddy, Gary Shirley. Her suicide attempt came a week after Amber pleaded guilty in an Indiana courtroom for two accounts of felony domestic battery charges. Amber did not receive jail time; rather the Indiana judge placed Amber on two years of probation. Amber also accepted a plea deal which allowed two charges, a felony and a misdemeanor, to be dismissed.
No matter what the reason is for Amber checking into rehab, we hope it’s a positive step in her healing process. Tune in for the latest series of Teen Mom, featuring Amber, which premieres on MTV July 5th.
