Teen Mom Amber Portwood: Why I Chose to Go to Jail (VIDEO)



“Teen Mom” alum Amber Portwood reveals her latest suicide attempt and decision to go to prison in a jailhouse interview with “Good Morning America” on Thursday.

The reality star confesses, “I took 30 Suboxone [used to treat opioid addiction] within three days.”


“The depression took over. I’d just take four to five at a time underneath my tongue, and nod out. I had more than addiction problems. I had, you know, mental problems, too,” admits Portwood.

Last June, Portwood was rushed to the hospital after she threatened to take her own life.

As for her decision to serve a five-year prison sentence rather than complete a prescription drug rehab program, she offers, “You want to be free. Who doesn’t? But you know if you can’t do it…. why are you kidding yourself?”
