Amber Is Going Back to Prison

I really don't even want to write this. I have rooted for Amber since day one and it saddens me that she has completely given up on herself. Today TMZ reports that Amber asked the judge to please send her to prison.
I'm not sure if she was caught relapsing or if this was during one of her mandatory rehab meetings but she apparently straight up asked the judge to send her to prison. Her lawyer just stood by shaking his head.

She also admitted to not staying clean during the rehab program. Amber is now back in jail and will be back in court in a few weeks for her sentencing. As Teen Mom comes to an end this really is a sad way to say goodbye.

If Amber is put away for her full 5 year Sentence... Leah will be 8 years old when she gets out...

Gary is taking it pretty hard too, which I can understand, he now has to explain to Leah what is going on with her mommy.

"Trust me when I say she didn't give up. She did what was gonna happen anyways. Drug Court was bullying her constantly... I've cried so much today my hear hurts for both her and Leah. You know Leah looks up to Amber a lot. And how do I tell her? I can't."

"I really wish it was different for plz don't think for one second she wanted this... She really is a terrific person who is having a hard time."


UPDATE!

TMZ has learned recently that immediately following Amber's incarceration
"her last drug test came back positive for the opiate-based drug Suboxone... a highly addictive drug similar to morphine."
After doing a little investigating I've discovered that Suboxone is a drug to get you off drugs. Not like Morphine. So... I have no idea what that is about.

Amber addmitted that she can't control herself and that going to prison will force her to quit cold turkey. She feels that may be the only way to save her life.

    4. She need a good old fashion kick in the butt. Maybe jail time will help her stay clean.. Its not heartless when you see on the show her beating the crap out of her bf and talking to him the way she does. All this in front of her child that is no mother. when they slip up that was a good thing. Then she would bring these loser guys back and her child meets them. Its sad bc the one that hurts the most is her lil girl..

  3. This makes me sad :( I too rooted for Amber. I'm from Indiana and obviously followed her story. :( I just hope she finds the solution and that someday she can be a great mom to Leah.

  4. Why do people have be so mean when someone has an addiction it not like she went out here and said oh well today I am going to become an addict. I am still rooting for you amber you will get back on track and don't let anyone bring you down.

    1. I was an addict an ur right, we dont just wake up one morning and decide to be one; the drugs gradually swallow you whole. However, YOU have to be the one to take back ur own life, YOU have to WANT to be drug free and YOU have to be the one to WANT to be a mother to your child. I'm not trying to sound harsh or judgmental but I've been there. I got clean and now have 4 beautiful children, a college degree and I'm marrying my soulmate next summer. Life is a roller coaster but you always have the right to decide which one to get on. Best of luck to her and lots of prayers for Leah!

    2. Absolutely agree! Anyway maybe this was the good choice.

    3. Yes but you decided in the first place to take the drugs. It's not like you didn't know what you were doing, or that you could get addicteded to it. Both my mom & sister are addiction counsilers and I have heard them talk about their job and I have zero simpanthly for those who are drug or alocholics. Specially when there are children involed.

    4. wow Jenna , that is an awesome story to share. I too have hope that she can make it for the sake of her Daughter. I pray she can fully recover even if it means leah is 8 we she gets out. At least she asked for help even this way. she could have chosen to continue using and not get help evn if its jail. Are there no hospitals she can go?

      Delete
    5. she may not have asked to be an ADDICT, but she made the choice to use in the first place, so that's on her. she should have been concerned about her daughted, not getting "fucked up" in the first place. but, my heart goes out to leah & i hope amber can straighten up & be a fit mother for her some day, because leah deserves it, <3

      Delete
    6. you know this could have started before she ever knew she was having leah....either way i doubt anyone is in the place to judge her on her flaws. even if it wasn't drugs or alcohol, i'm sure you have regret something that you have done. everyone carries something with them that they regret!

      Delete
    7. Yes, everyone has isolated events that they regret - but each time you choose to get high, is a chance to quit.

      Delete
    8. I think she wanted to go away bc the season is starting and rather be in jail then hear all the negative slack she's going to get!!!!!!

      Delete
    9. It did start before leah. She was 13. And tes addicts choise to take drugs, but i have tried many different things and am lucky to not have an addictive personality. Im sure many of you who say its an addicts fault for starting it but i bet 95% of you have smoked pot, taken z pain killer or an adderal or been to a few parties and drank. Count your stars bc thats how addicts start. And if your a smoker; dont smoke for a day. Bet you cant addict.

      Delete
    10. The addict aspect of it is beside the point. I was addicted to xanax for 7 years the day i found out I was pregnant I quit. The love i have for my daughter means way more to me than being high. it has been 1 year and eight months. My daughter will be one in june. It is not worth it. Amber needs will power and you ex-addicts on here need to quit making excuses for her. It was her choice, my choice and your choice to take any drugs we took however many times we took them before we became addicted. Everything you do in life is a choice. We as individuals, are all responsible for the choices we CHOOSE to make. We are also responsible for the children we create. Neither one is she beong held accountable for, because poor her, she's an "addict." In reality she's just another pos mother who is only concerned with her needs.

    11. Good for you Jenna! Unless you're in this situation no one has the right to say anything. You don't know what you would do. You know what you think you'd do and what you should do but sometimes life doesn't happen that way. If more people had open minds and compassion in this world it sure would be a nicer place. Jenna you keep up the great work. You're an inspiration to many.

    12. I hope the other inmates make her life a living hell.
      She needs to learn the world doesn't revolve around her.

  5. poor leah i hope that gary manges to take great care of her because she desirves all the love in the world. As for amber she was a really mad mother from the start so she should be in jail n should stay there n never get coustdy of leah ever again.

  6. Does anyone else think it wouldn't of come to this if it wasn't for the show?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. NOPE - because she was already hooked BEFORE the show. Since age 13. No matter what, Amber would have had issues. Maybe the money from teen mom meant that she idd not have to prostitue herself for money to get high with.

      Delete
    2. i think the show helped push the wheels in motion for all this jail and cps crap. if it wasnt for the show leah would just be another kid from a broken home imo

      Delete
    3. The show did not put the wheels in motion - the wheels were already in motion - she was already an addict. She would have hit Gary at sometime - the cameras are a deterant, not a catalyst. Thank god CPS intervened.

      If the cameras were not there then Amber would not have made any attempts to have a clean house, or get help, or be 'functional' or get in shape or...

      She still would not have gotten her GED, nothing would be "better" (she wouldn't have been busted for the low income housing thingy), but I think it may have been worse without the show. Way worse.

  7. she asked the judge to put her back in jail that should mean something to me that means she is trying to straighten out her life... She acts like she regrets everything she did i mean i wouldn't go to a judge if i was in her situation unless i was regreting what i did.. I am still praying for her to get better she will get better.. gl amber with everything

    1. If you have never been an addict or have never dealt with losing a parent to an addiction then how can u judge someone else. U r not perfect. Do u get straight A's, clean up after yourself, work, clean your house and yard, spend hours being productive with your time instead of watching Tv or being on the computer? In my book if you don't do that stuff u r wasting your life justbthe addicts do getting high. Everyone deals diffently with their problems. It is up to God to make the final judgement.

  10. I would assume that she is trying to straighten herself out by asking to be put in prison, so really I'm happy that she's made this decision. It shows improvement. It sucks so bad that it came to this, but she's fixing things. So I have high hopes that it'll get better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. As soon as she was released to family I knew she could not be successful.

    I know her family means well - but they keep covering her ass, saying that the judge made a mistake etc. An addict needs support, but not to the point of enabling. (It is still Amber's choice, however.).

    I am sad, but not surprised. Addiction is hard. It is a life long struggle for some.

    And THIS is also why I was terrified that she was heading to the army (in her mind, at least!). I mean, she can not maintain stability for any length of time, so if she 'snapped' in the army who knows what kind of mayhem might have ensued!

    I wonder how long she will have to go back for.

    And poor Leah. I hope the kids at school don't make fun of her...

  12. She needs to get her life together..what type of mom is she to do this to her little girl..drugs kill..she will never be able to see her child grow up and later on she will never forgive herself for it

  13. Rehab didn't work, Consouling didn't work, Nothing did. Perhaps cold hard time, and not seeing her daughter hardly ever will be the one thing that can help. As much as it saddens me to see her give up completely on herself -- I think it's worth a shot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. She probably feels that she's lost everything and being gone would be better. Shes constantly scrutinized by the public for all her mistakes, she lost her daughter, and she can't get off drugs. Maybe she honestly feels she would rather disappear than be a constant disappointment to everybody, including Leah. I feel for her little girl and hope for the best for Amber. She's obviously crying for help on this one.

    1. That's exactly what I was thinking too. I think she might be depressed and by being locked up, she thinks it'll help her straighten out and get her life back.

    2. That's what I thought as well. Maybe the judge will see that this is her last ditch attempt to kick her addiction and put her inpatient rehab, since outpatient hasn't worked so well. I hope, for both her and Leah's sake, that she can get clean, get the psychiatric help she needs, get her GED, and get on with her life.

      Delete
    3. She was offered inpatient rehab - but her attitude was so bad, she was refused entry. She would have failed there, and brought others down with her.

  15. Maybe she feels that's the only way to stay clean and better herself.

  16. She needs to grow up damn I've followed her from day one and she acts like this was never going to happen well now her daughter is without a mother because she made the decision to do drugs and hit ppl.

    1. I think that is partly why people are bashing her - because Leah suffers as a result of her mother's poor decisions.

  18. I am on both sides. amber is obviously crying out for help, however the day u find out ur pregnant u are a mom. if ppl were talking carp about her instead of turning to drugs n alcohol she should have made a model example for her daughter n said "forget what ppl say about me my main person and concern is my daughter n myself" n lived her life for that reason. she is a disappointment to the show n her daughter. n for everyone defending her... u wouldn't have this same outlook if it were Gary acting the way she were.

  19. she should just go on celebrity rehab it might help her or atleast sometype of rehab that keeps her locked down and away from the outside world she just needs to get away from all this drama for her and her child.Annd everyone needs to give the girl a break as a teen mom I kno how hard it can be

    ReplyDelete
  20. So - we were told by Amber's family that she was doing well, that any time the PO or court gave her a hard time that it was a mistake or misunderstanding.

    I guess we know the whole truth and nothing but the whole (sad) truth now.

    Addict manipulate the people in their families. I feel sorry for them.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I hated amber at first and couldn't believe the way she acted but then I started to feel sorry for her. Yea she brought this apon herself and shouldnt be putting herself first but everyone makes mistakes. She just made a major one. Maybe she didn't try hard enough for rehab but least she came forward and asked the job to send her to jail instead of just letting it go and come down to the jail time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. YES POOR LEAH, BUT ALSO WE NEED TO HAVE IMPATHY FOR AMBER, ADICTION IS A SICKNESS, SOME OF US CAN JUST SAY HELL NO IM DONE AND SOME ITS NOT SO EASY. HER ASKING TO GO TO PRISON IS AMBERS WAY OF SAYING SHE CANT DO IT ON HER OWN. YES THAT BABY DOESNT HAVE HER MOM IN HER LIFE DO TO DRUGS, BUT IT WOULD BE MUCH WORSE IF IT KILLED HER. AMBER I PRAY THAT U FIND UR STRENGHT AND U CONQUER THIS DEMOND AND FIND UR WAY BACK TO UR LIL GIRL.

  25. Ok. To the oerson that said that things like addiction are genetic that can be true but at the same time it doesn't mean it absolutely will. My parents are both addicts. My father was in prision most of my childhood for various drug related charges and my mother chose drugs over raising her children. My sisters and I are not addicted to anything. We have learned from our parents mistakes. We were all taken away from my mother when I was 16teaching my sisters were 6 and 3. I am now 24 with two beautiful daughters of my own and both of my sisters are straight a students. So we are living proof that it is not in fact genetic. As for those of you bashing Amber on here I am not taking up for her nor am I justifying her actions but everyone makes mistakes no one is perfect and some people can not get the help they need on their own. My mother continued doing drugs untill almost 2done years ago when she got locked up and she has said that it is honestly the best thing that ever happened to her. She has become clean she is ready to get out and be there for her children and grandchildren. So maybe this will be good for Amber. Speaking as a child who literally has been in almost the exact same position as Leah it is NEVER too late for a parent to fix what they have broken. And all of you out there bashing Amber how do you imagine reading your comments would make Leah feel? That is still her mommy people and things are never really truly deleted from the internet. Keep Leah Amber and Gary all in your hearts and prayers they are ALL going to need it now more than ever.

    2. Kasi,
      "Genetics plays a significant role in a person's life. I fear that Leah will have significant challanges ahead"

      Where in that quote does it say that Leah is going to be a druggie?

      It says she will have significant challanges. That being said, things like alcoholism DO HAVE A STRONG GENETIC CORRELATION. Even in longitudinal adoption studies (where children did not know their biological parents), addicition issues were linked and were statistically significant.

      Mental illness also has a genetic predisposition. Amber is mentally ill.

      I think that given genetics, and the publicity surrounding her early years, it is a plausible conclusion that Leah has significant challanges ahead of her. If you do not agree with that assessment, I respect that. Not every child comes from a perfect home, and other children may have more obstacles than Leah will.

      The statement is fair, in my opinion.
      "I fear that Leah will have significant challanges ahead"

  26. I hope that Amber can get herself straightened out. Life is hard. No one is ever promised an easy road. It seems to me that Amber is seeing that nothing that has been tried so far is working, so going to jail may well be what she feels to be her last chance to get her life straightened out. Parenting isn't easy in a good situation, I can't imagine how hard it would be to be a teenager and be pregnant and to constantly fighting with the other parent. I think that Amber is stronger than she thinks she is right now. No one asks for addiction, and for anyone here to say that they make the choice to do it, yes, they do, but they do not intentionally set out to become addicts. It happens before you even realize it. Instead of bashing her and calling her a bad mom, maybe everyone needs to see that there is/was more going on than anyone ever got told and this is her last cry for help. You can do this Amber, just think and focus on fixing yourself and your life so that you can be back in your baby's life and be the person and the mom that you can be. Babies are gifts, my little girl is, when you feel like you can't do it anymore, just picture Leah, and you will get through.

  28. I wish i could say i feel bad for amber, but i dont. Leah is the victim in all this, not amber. 5 years without her mother in her life is gonna affect her especially if she looks up to Mber like gary says she does. You have to start taking drugs to get addicted to them. amber made her bed and now shes layin in it. best wishes for gary and leah!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just FYI, Amber will do about 2 1/2 years in jail. You get credits for prison time and rarely serve the entire sentence. It's usually between 50%-80% of the sentence actually served.

    Leah won't be 8. And frankly, this might be the best thing for Amber. Prison is obviously not a good place or a fun place, but the rehab clearly wasn't working for her.

  30. Seriously you all are like book hook hook poor amber. You know get a life, I hope the judge throws the book at her, 5 years, she couldn't even complete simple probation,and drug court I mean yea things are tough

    1. First of all, I think you mean "boo hoo hoo" not "book hook hook" and second of all, Rehab didn't work for her, it isn't for everyone, so MAYBE she will be able to come clean and start a better life after she serves jail time.. It might be the best thing for her. And just because she is a drug addict doesn't make her a "fucking criminal"

      Being a drug addict trying to come clean isn't easy for everyone. I know someone that was a drug addict, got his girlfriend into it, and went to jail and is clean now. BECAUSE HE DID JAIL TIME. He couldn't get his hands on the crap. So maybe jail will do the same thing for Amber!!...
      I wish you all the best Amber! I am rooting for you:)

  31. It saddens me how almost no one can see that this is bullying on a larger scale. One day she will end herself, then suddenly folks will say 'Didn't know she was this depressed.' or 'How can she do this to her child.' -This woman is tired and close to her ends, you don't just ask a judge to send you back to jail when you have a baby on the other side of the fench. (DON'T start about her love and loyalty towards Leah, she might have made mistakes but EVERYONE does. ) I'm somewhat happy Teen Mom is ending, as people forget tv folk after some time.. Maybe Amber will then finally get some peace of mind.

    PS: All of you that look down upon her like she's some lower being, we all shit out of the same hole and if you were in her shoes, you wouldn't even be able to walk half a mile in it. You'er weak, you already show this by beating someone down while she's struggling to get up.

  32. This girl has taken no kind of responsibility from the beginning. If Gary had punched her in the head, and tried to kick her down the stairs; he would have been in jail ALOT sooner than she was.. Now seeing how her mother and brother blame everyone else BUT her, it is obvious where she gets her total lack of accountability from. How many chances is she supposed to get before she hurts someone seriously? I am quite sure that she loves her daughter BUT I think that she loves herself more!!! Her going to jail is not bullying; it is a consequence of her actions!!! Has anyone heard that song "I fought the law and the law won"? Sadly that's the case here.

    1. I agree that Amber has taken NO responsibility, and her family has blamed anyone but her (Sometimes Shawn tries to hold her accountable, but even now he is saying the system failed her - what else was the "system" suppose to do?).

      I totally agree that Amber has never been held accountable, and that's really not a safe reality for her.

      It is so true that if Gary had been hitting Amber there would have been immediate reprocussions (I am betting the camera crew may have stepped in at the very least...), but even after that event, it was all about Amber.

      Maybe jail is the best option for Amber. Maybe she will learn that she is NOT special (which her family reinforces when they say that she is being hassled by the drug court because of "who she is", instead of seeing that the drug court is haslling her because they KNEW she was towing the line, and she thought she could get away with it "because of who she is".).

      She was the one that lied about being to sick to attend, but her family would have us believe that it is all a miscommunication etc.

      By Amber's own admission she was not "clean".

      No program can help Amber right now because of her mental state - that's why S2S refused her, because they knew she was/is not in a place where they can effectively help her.

      Amber started with a disadvantaged life, and it has predisposed her to her current situation.

  33. any body plz explain to me what kind of drugs did she use?? is it that why she lost so much weight?? and how an when was she diagnosed with her being mentally ill??
    well any body plz answer

    1. You right that no one would give a fuck, but it probably would have had a similar (or worse) outcome, as Amber has been hooked since she was 13, and has no intention of quitting despite the resources she has been given. The abuse stopped because she was caught, on camera, had that not happened the cycle of abuse would have continued.

      I actually believe that there is the potential that it would have been worse in some ways had Amber not been in the limelight. (I am not saying that it is easier for her with all the public pressure - just that she still would have been an addict, the relationship with Gary would have continued longer, perhaps getting more violent. That would have been a very poor environment for Leah. At least Gary seems 'clean' and is trying to provide a stablish home for her.)

  34. If I was Amber, I would do whatever I could to be with my kids and out of prison walls...sure it is hard for her, but you look at your kids and they give you the strength to get through it all. For me, they do anyways. I have two little one's myself and I am twenty years old. I think what they should do for Amber is let her be in a place she can be with people her own age who have their own issues, someone she can relate to and befriend. I also agree with the person who commented before myself. If they didn't put Amber's story on t.v., it's a given that none of this would be happening to her... some things just shouldn't be on television.

    1. "a given that none of this would be happening to her... "

      Really? Things would be all rainbows and unicorns? Gary and Amber never would have fought? She wouldn't have been on pills since she was 13?

      Ummmm, I disagree. MTV gave her access to more resources (both good and bad), but look at Tyler and Cate - they chose to embrace councilling (probably paid for by their MTV earnings) and to seek out positive resources and build a future (buy a house etc).

      When you have more and more positive things, it is easier to make better choices, because you feel better about yourself. (In general, not 100% of the time. Extra money is easy to spend on drugs too, but as stated earlier, maybe the easy money from MTV saved Amber from prostituting herself for drug money at some point, as she seems unable to maintain employment.).

      So don't blame MTV. In the end only Amber can be held accountable for her own behavior.

  36. I really don't understand how it got this far.
    It's sad that the truth is: if she wasn't on TV, this wouldn't be happening to her. But, she makes 250,000 dollars a year for it... She doesn't have to worry about money - just staying out of trouble. Should be easy enough.

    It all started with a domestic abuse charge... now drugs? What drugs was she using and when and how did she get caught with them? I would really like an answer to that.

    1. I would have to disagree with you a bit. Even without Teen Mom or 16 & Pregnant, Amber could have very well been down the same path because she was predisposed to addiction because her father was/is an alcoholic. What Teen Mom has done is exacerbate and publicize her problem and given her more money to afford a certain lifestyle and provide her with enablers.
      It may seem like her problems began with domestic abuse, but she very well could have been using drugs and/or alcohol recreationally before 16 & Pregnant was even filmed. And she was caught using drugs through her mandated drug testing.

  38. Oh Amber...I was rooting for you to get better. Perhaps jail time will help her out in the long run. They have many programs, even a GED program. I hope this will open up her eyes and take back the lead of her life for her sake and Leah's.
    Clearly Amber suffers from not only addiction, but also depression. People need to stop bashing her and support her since she is not getting that from her family.
    Your in my prayers Amber! I hope you can get better for not only yourself but for Leah!

  39. Are Amber and Gary together or were they planning on it because they looked happy together in the pictures before she was taken in

  40. I guess her being on opiates explains her "dramatic" weight loss back about a year or so ago. I hope that once she is released from prison that she follows through with NA meetings, counseling, and some parenting classes. I do feel sorry in a way for Amber, but the real victim is Leah. Amber also needs to think about moving into a sober living home instead of being on her own surrounded by her enabling family. FYI brother Shaun, Teen Mom did not cause this to happen to your sister. Amber caused this to happen to Amber.

  41. Everyone needs to get the facts straight, suboxone is a drug to get people off drugs. It is not highly addictive and is in anyway like morphine.. come on your stupid judgmental people

  42. I hope she gets better for her daughter, but jail isn't the way to go. American jails don't provide the best rehabilitative environments, especially not for addicts. As much as I (and a lot of others) would like to see her better, its going to take more than jail to help her and she may end up missing most, if not all of, Leah's childhood while she tries to get better.

  43. If that drug isn't like morphine,Gary or someone in her family COULD print out the information and give it to the judge. So,really she didn't fail the drug test. My brother is an addict and has left rehab twice. He's been on methadone and it may be different than the drug Amber "failed" her drug test with but I do know from him,if he takes enough,he gets high. Now like I said,the two drugs could be completely different. My brother even asked me once if I wanted a methadone to get high with and I said NO. My sister however took one. She was F*ed up. I'm surprised my brother and sister is still alive :(
    I truly think Amber needs a treatment drug center. Like you see on Intervention (then move to a, is it a safeway house??). Besides just sending her to prison to quit cold turkey. She needs HELP to quit. Some drugs you just can't quit cold turkey. A DR can tell you that. I take xanax for anxiety and panic attacks and ONLY take them as needed. If I don't need one today,I won't take one... BUT my body is so use to the meds that after about 24 hours of NOT having any,I get withdrawl symptoms. They are HORRIBLE!! I can take a pill and they symptoms goes away. I can not imagine having withdrawls like Amber will and just have to suffer.

    And what really makes me sad is if Amber has been addicted to opiates since she was 13. I'm pretty sure she was taking them the 9 months she was pregnant. That can cause Leah to have problems. Very sad.

  45. suboxone is HIGHLY addictive. They do use it to aide a person in coming off opiates...they do it in a weening fashion.

  46. I think its funny how alot of you are bashing her, yes she has screwed up many times but so have all of us and at least she is doing what she thinks will be the best possible way to get her life back on track and make sure she doesnt keep going down the wrong road like ending up killing herself with all the drugs, yes suboxone is a addictive drug but if used in the correct way and monitored it can help alot of people get off much more addicting drugs, until your in her shoes no one should say anything. Its not like any of us know her or know what she is going through. We are just hearing things come from gossip blogs, magazines and other things. I feel sad for her because I have a daughter myself and I wouldnt want to hurt her like that in any way but I also know from first hand experience seeing family memebers have addictive problems like this and its extremely hard for people to kick these types of habits, not matter how much they want to for someone. They have to want to do it for themselves and this might be just the perfect way for her to do it. So stop being so judgmental, think how you would feel if the shoe was turned and dont say it wont happen to you because you because you never know, it just might!!!

  49. Suboxon is like the meth program, giving you the drug but in small amounts to lean your body off of it, I don't feel in any way she has been a good mother. She repeatedly has physically and mentally abused Gary. She does it in front of her child which is child endangerment. She dated a druggie she met at Walmart, allowed him to ise her car when he was not on the insurance policy, if he got caught dealing drugs outta her car, then she would have been dealing with that on top of her addiction. she has no respect for anyone. If she loved her daughter so much she would have stayed clean after her pregnancy. No doubt you can relapse at any point in time but it takes strength and positivity to accomplish that goal, not only for gerself but her child too. Yes its good she chooses prison to make herself quit cold turkey but apparently that did not work before, once again anyone can relapse at any point in time in their life no matter how long they have been clean.

  50. First off I would like to say that I am still hoping amber can get things together and be there for her daughter. I know people that have been addicted to drugs and it is not something you can just overcome at the drop of a hat. my uncle was on them and it took him years to be able to stay clean. It is a chemical imbalance in the brain that keeps telling your body that you need the drugs. Everyone needs to put themselves in amber's shoes and look at how she feels or what she is going through. She just can't give up and keep moving forward. I think her telling the judge to put her in jail shows that she does want to change and she believes the only way she can change is too be put in jail where she has no choice but to quit cold turkey and to deal with not being able to go here and there to be able to get her drugs. I think her telling them to put her in jail was a wise choice on her part and everyone should not be downing her for wanting that but wishing her the best that she is able to get better and get the help she needs while she is in there.

  51. Not sure if someone mentioned this but it is methadone not morphine. And you can get high of suboxane depending on your tolerance.
