Teen Mom's Amber Portwood got a lot of hate when she abandoned her drug court program and went to jail, but being behind bars might just be the best decision she's ever made. Amber spoke to Dr. Drew during her jailhouse special, which aired on Oct. 9 on MTV, and we've never seen her more balanced, together, or fresh-faced!

Amber has made a lot of promises to Dr. Drew in the past (and hasn't followed through on any of them), but this time felt different. She seemed willing and ready to better herself for Leah's sake, and is even studying for her GED!

Amber has regular therapy sessions with her fellow inmates, NA meetings, and a part-time job cleaning bathrooms. Basically, she's learning all kinds of life lessons, and is finally taking some responsibility for her actions.

You also may have noticed that Amber wasn't as hot-headed as usual, which means girlfriend has finally gotten that temper under control! Who knows if the drugs exacerbated Amber's anger issues, but being clean and sober is doing wonders for her personality.

We think Abs has definitely changed for the better since being locked up in the clink. Do you?
