Amber Portwood Jail

Douglas S. Garrison, of the Indiana Department of Corrections, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively Amber is undergoing a diagnostic process that will determine her permanent placement in a facility.

The diagnostic process that Amber Portwood is about to undergo to examine her “medical, psychological, mental, and emotional health” will last for two to three weeks and she not be allowed ANY visitors! Will they make an exception for her baby daughter?

Unfortunately for the 21-year-old former Teen Mom star,  she will NOT be able to see her four-year-old daughter Leah during this time. Douglas S. Garrison, Chief Communications Officer of the Indiana Department of Corrections, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “During this diagnostic process time, Amber is not allowed any visitors, including her baby daughter. However, she is allowed to make out-going phone calls.”

The troubled young mom is currently serving a five-year sentence in jail for drug related problems. She reportedly asked to go to prison instead of completing a drug rehabilitation program.

After the diagnostic process is over, Amber will be taken to one of three correctional facilities to complete her sentence.

Baby daddy Gary Shirley is currently in full custody of daughter Leah while Amber is in jail. We sure hope Amber gets the help she needs, so she can be a good mom to Leah!
