It’s shocking, that former reality star, “Teen Mom,” Amber Portwood chose to go back to jail instead of seeking addiction treatment. In a new interview, the troubled MTV star, reveals that she suffers from severe depression and even tried to commit suicide. Wow, what happened?
Amber Portwood says, “I had taken 30 Suboxone [a drug used to treat opioid addictions] within 3 days. The depression took over. I would take 4 or 5 at a time. I felt like I’d rather do my time and get it over with, and make the best of a situation that’s been handed to me.I’m not just going to sit. I’m going to do substance abuse classes. I’m going to get my GED.”
What’s really weird, Portwood tried a home drug program, but wasn’t emotionally stable to handle it. Why didn’t they just send her to six months in rehab? She could have gotten counseling and drug treatment. In jail, she will go cold turkey, with some addiction classes, but the environment can’t be that healthy.
For Astrochicks, we think MTV may be glorifying teen pregnancy, and these immature young girls aren’t ready to handle fame and fortune. Amber Portwood is a perfect example, an emotionally troubled girl, who didn’t have the tools to make proper decisions in life.
Astrologically speaking, Amber Portwood, is born under the sign of Taurus. A stubborn girl, she tends to live life to excess. She can be way too materialistic and likes to be in control.
In 2013, we think she will wake up from the fog of drug use, and will most likely try desperately to get back out of jail. Five years is a really long time, she needs mental health and addiction treatment, not jail. Prison, will not be kind to her.
Next year, Astrochicks expect more troubles for our Amber Portwood, we hope that she will continue to have family support. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and her baby girl. We hope she makes it to the other side.
