Farrah Abraham Checks Into Rehab To Handle Drinking Problem
Farrah will spend 10 days in the rehab center, with her spell beginning on July 1
Farrah Abraham looked to be having things on track with her life following the success of her porn film, but it turns out that things aren't as good as they seemed as the one-time Teen Mom is in rehab to try and crack down on her drinking habit. The single mother has entered an outpatient program at at The Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in a bid to reach sobriety before beginning the next chapter of her life.

“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," she said in a statement to Radar Online, adding, "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 when she was found driving nearly twice over the legal limit in Omaha, Nebraska back in March this year. She was sentenced to six months probation and ordered to complete an alcohol education course, which she has since completed, but feels as though she still needs to control her drinking before it becomes a problem. The reality-cum-porn star will spend 10 days with the program, beginning on July 1, and will cost Farrah around $12,000.

The out-patient treatment allows Farrah to retain her independence and gives her full freedom to do as she pleases while part of the program, however she will spend the entire 10 day period under observation from the workers at the rehab centre.
Farrah was told to seek 60 hours of intensive outpatient treatment following her run-in with the law, followed by 12 months of after care, which she may or may not take.
