Amber Portwood, who was jailed last week for contempt of court after giving up on rehab, believes prison is the only way to save her life.

That’s because her drug addition has gotten so brutal, nothing will keep her from the substances she craves short of locking her in a cell.

Sources say that last week, following her most recent arrest, her (failed) drug test was positive for the opiate-based drug Suboxone.

This is a highly addictive drug similar to Morphine. Portwood admits that she can’t control herself around the drug. Not even close, in fact.

She even bought it off the street during a court-ordered drug program, she says, and threw in the towel on rehab because there’s no point.

Amber Portwood feels going to prison is the only way to get clean because it will force her to kick the addiction cold turkey and forever.

However illogical this may be, it looks like she’ll get her wish. A judge will decide how long she spends there in couple of weeks.
