Amber Portwood is currently locked in the clink for a series of drug charges, but you'd never think her life was going to spiral out of control based on the current season of Teen Mom. This week, we saw a new and improved Amber take rehab by storm, and it really seemed like she was ready to turn things around!
Don't forget that Amber suffers from depression, which went largely untreated for most of her adult life. She was forced to self-medicate, and part of the reason she went to rehab was to regulate her pills and taper off the medicine she had been taking. Unfortunately, Amber's self-medicating led to an addiction, and she was found with drugs that she couldn't provide a prescription for.
Amber’s tests also didn’t come up clean during drug court, but we can't help thinking this situation is slightly unfair. Amber may not get the help she needs in jail, and her drug addiction could continue.
There's no doubt Amber can be mighty irresponsible, but relapsing is common with drug addicts. It's sad that Amber is living her life behind bars thanks to a habit she just can't kick. Should this gal be out of jail and in rehab, or does she deserve to wear that bright orange jumpsuit?
