Breaking news, Teen Mom fan-girls. Our very own porntrepreneur, Farrah Abraham, voluntarily checked into The Lukens Institute, a luxury Florida-based rehab facility, on Sunday, June 30. Farrah entered a 10-day outpatient program (where she’ll be monitored by a sober companion) to deal with her alcohol abuse in wake of being arrested for a DUI over St. Patrick’s Day weekend.
“At this time in my life, I need to stay focused on the positive to get through all of the negative that a DUI has caused in my life,” Farrah tells RadarOnline about her shocking decision. “I’m 22 and I want to make better choices and ensure I can recognize when I am putting myself in a bad situation next time.”
Farrah was arrested after being found driving with nearly twice the legal amount of alcohol in her system. She’s currently serving six months probation, and recently passed an alcohol education course. However, Austin Drug & Alcohol Abuse executive director, Phyllis K. Moczygemba, requested that Farrah complete 60 hours of intensive outpatient treatment as well as 12 months of aftercare due to her alarming behavior in class.
According to Phyllis, Farrah “does meet the criteria for substance abuse” and “had difficulty making eye contact, was standoffish and was sarcastic when answering the questions asked of her” while in the alcohol education course.
So, how much will Farrah’s stint in Florida set her back? Just a cool $12,000 –– and get this –– Tan Mom’s very own Patricia Krentcil is attending rehab at the same joint! Oh, and in case you’re worried (which we know you are), Farrah’s daughter, Sophia, is currently staying with her grandpa, Michael Abraham. Well, that’s a load off.
