'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Has Checked Into Rehab — For 30 to 60 Days!

Tue, June 28, 2011 1:10pm EST by 6 Comments

Amber’s friend tells HollyBaby.com that the troubled MTV star will be in a Malibu rehab facility for up to two months.

Teen Mom Amber Portwood, 21, has decided to get help — and we’re here to support her! Amber checked into a rehab facility in Malibu on Sunday, June 28, after she was hospitalized and resting at home following her scary suicide attempt.

A close friend of Amber’s tells HollyBaby.com: “Amber told me she will be in rehab between 30-60 days. It is her first time in rehab.”

“Amber is dealing with a lot of stressful issues right now,” the source adds. “People judge her all the time because of the things they have seen on the show — she hasn’t been portrayed in the best light at times but she is human and has feelings. She shouldn’t have to deal with hateful fans telling her they wish she would just die.  She loves Leah to death and wants nothing but the best for her, she wants her daughter and she wants to live happily.”

We hope Amber gets the help she needs!

she did not !!!! she was still in anderson on monday!!
she was at mounds mall with gary looking at jewelry.and sad
to say,but yes..people were making not so nice comments about her.it was kinda funny watching her walk from one jewelry store to another before finally getting some earings at claires.and nope,she did not look stressed.she was all dressed up in a red sundress and her hair was tied up.let’s just say that she wanted to be noticed.
so HL,get your facts straight.
oh and btw,the judge hasn’t even approved the rehab in cali yet.

She needs rehab for tanning. That orange skin of hers is gross!
There’s a difference between tanning with a heathy browninsh/tan glow, and looking like you rolled around in nacho flavored Dorrito’s.

amber going to rehab is great but why is she doing it in malibu, 2000 miles away from her friends and family who could visit and support her?

i applaud her decision; however, the fact that she chose to go to malibu looks a little suspicious, and that she’s just using rehab as a chance to rub elbows with the famous and misguided.
