Amber Portwood is speaking out for the first time since she was released from jail after serving time for a drug possession charge.
During an interview with Dr. Phil, which airs Friday, the Teen Mom star is opening up about her past drug use.
The reality star reveals, “This is actually my first time on stage sober, so I’m really nervous. Every time you see me on that show [Teen Mom], I am high.”
“I’m not going to give anyone any ideas, but let’s just say you can, it doesn’t show up unless you send it to a lab,” Amber Portwood confessed to Dr. Phil about her abuse of the drug Fentanyl when she was in treatment.
“It’s like a three-day patch. It can be very dangerous, and I, um, I was using that the whole time I was in there [in treatment]. With a friend, or whatever she was. It’s patches. It’s really dangerous. I opened up the patch and I would eat the patch.”
Amber was released from Rockville Correctional facility in November after serving one year of her five year prison sentence.
