Amber Portwood is coming clean about her past drug use in an interview with Dr. Phil, airing tomorrow. From the looks of the promo, she pulls no punches.

"This is actually my first time on stage sober, so I'm really nervous," she reveals in the clip. "Every time you see me on that show [Teen Mom], I am high."

The MTV reality star went on to explain that she was high even when in treatment for being high. She abused the drug Fentanyl while she was in rehab.

"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.

"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. 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."

Teen Mom 2 will be back in 2014, even if MTV just canceled Teen Mom 3 and is keeping the return of the second iteration of the hit franchise surprisingly quiet.

As for the rumored spinoff starring firebrand Jenelle Evans?

Doesn't look like it's happening. Ditto rumors that Teen Mom 3's Mackenzie Douthit has signed on for one, although both would probably like the idea.

Here's a rundown on the Teen Mom rumor mill as it stands:

Jenelle Evans' spinoff: She denied it on Twitter, and if she took a break from posing shots of her boobs to do so, we buy it. All insane fights (above) will have to come on TM2.

Mackenzie Douthit spinoff: She supposedly lobbied hard for another season of TM3 and for her own show, but MTV says that there is "no truth" to that rumors.

Amber Portwood is looking good these days, and not just because she's no longer forced to wear an orange jumpsuit and can sleep without fear of being shanked.

The reformed Teen Mom is celebrating her freedom by creating a new look for herself, and it's a great one! Check out the difference in hair and makeup:

  • Amber Portwood Makeover
  • Amber Portwood Mug Shot (New)

After serving 17 months behind bars, Portwood was released from prison earlier in November, and quickly ditched her previous "mug shot" makeup.

Her post-prison makeover definitely gives her a softer look.

Amber Portwood recently reunited with daughter Leah and baby daddy Gary Shirley (not in the romantic sense) and is trying to get her life together.

So far, so good, and we can only hope she keeps this up.

She also got herself some new clothes (hopefully not at Aeropostale), and no longer uses homemade, prison-style hairspray. Really, it's all looking up.

To note just how big an improvement this is ... see below:

Amber Portwood and baby daddy Gary Shirley reunited this week following her release from prison, but they are not getting back together in a romantic sense. At all.

The former couple made it clear outside a Panera Bread restaurant in Indiana yesterday that despite hanging out, they are not giving the whole romance thing a go.

This is probably for the best.

Teen Mom fans don't need to be reminded that Amber Portwood was arrested for battering Gary Shirley in 2010, as MTV cameras were a-rollin' (above).

It did not go over well.

Portwood went on to have major problems with substance abuse, losing custody of their daughter Leah and ultimately getting sent away for five years.

Amber Portwood is now a free woman after spending 17 months behind bars.

Not surprisingly, that freedom comes as a sweet relief to the mother of one.

The first thing she did after her release from prison Monday was reunite with her four-year-old daughter, Leah, with whom she became famous on Teen Mom.

For both girls, it was a long-awaited and joyful moment ...

Troubled (or perhaps reformed?) Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was released from Indiana's Rockville Correctional Facility after 17 months behind bars Monday.

Her brother Shawn, with whom she is close, took to Twitter with an encouraging status update on his 23-year-old sister's release from the big house.

"Amber is out and looking better than she ever has because she is clean (of drugs) and healthy," her wrote. "It's time to start a new chapter. #Iloveyousis."

"I think I speak for everyone when I say we all are [rooting for her]," he replied to a tweet from Sharon Bookout, mom to Portwood's co-star Maci Bookout.

"But after spending the day with her I know she will be OK."

We all do hope that's true. But with a history like Amber Portwood has, it's far from a given. Can she make the most of this next chapter, as Shawn says?

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been released from an Indiana prison after almost a year and a half. She was originally sentenced to five years.

In mid-2012, the troubled reality TV personality famously begged a judge to put her behind bars, rather than sentence her to probation and drug court.

The judge obliged, and sentenced her to prison for violating probation in her drug possession case. Amber Portwood claimed it would be better for her.

Now, the 24-year-old MTV star has paid her debt to society. She walked out a free woman this morning after just 17 months, due to good behavior.

Is Amber Portwood a changed and mature woman? That's what the Teen Mom star's brother claims as she nears her early release from prison.

Amber Portwood in Jail

Amber, 23, is slated for release from Indiana’s Rockville Correctional Facility on November 6, having served about 20 percent of her five-year sentence.

Brother Shawn says Amber Portwood, who famously battled addiction problems, completed drug rehab and got her G.E.D. while serving her time.

“She’s really grown and matured," Shawn said.

"She completed drug rehab, she got her G.E.D., she took parenting classes and became the administrator of the CLIFF program, which helps inmates get sober."

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood's prison stay is set to come to an end in November after just one year of a five-year sentence, a new report indicates.

The 23-year-old mother of one has been working hard for early release - albeit after opting for jail over drug court and probation - and it looks promising.

“I’m so excited and I’m really working hard studying so I can score high on the GED test,” Portwood said. “I’m working my ass off to get out of here!”

Amber Portwood’s brother, Shawn, confirmed the release with the Indiana Department of Corrections and tweeted about the good news this week.

Prison life is hard to adjust to.

Not only are one's kids not around when you're behind bars, but as Teen Mom's Amber Portwood laments, ain't no Starbucks up in that piece. Brutal stuff.

Amber Portwood in Jail

Four months into her five-year prison sentence, Portwood is opening up about her decision to opt out of a court-ordered rehab stint and take the years instead.

Speaking to Dr. Drew Pinsky (of course), she says:
