It's been more than a year since it was first reported that troubled mother of three Leah Messer is battling a prescription pill addiction.
Now, sources say the troubled Teen Mom 2 star is finally getting help.
According to In Touch magazine, Messer checked into rehab on May 3, following a tearful goodbye from her three daughters.
“She’ll be gone for a month,” a source close to Leah tells the magazine.
“She wants her girls to visit.”
As for the reports that Messer is seeking treatment for mental health issues and not for drug addiction, the insider claims that's a lie.
One propagated by Leah and her mother in order to protect Leah's reputation and save her from future custody battles with her two ex husbands.
“She’s still telling people she’s going away for therapy,” the insider explains. “They’re hoping her denial doesn’t stop her from making a fresh start.”
It was rumored that Leah was doing better in recent months and had made the decision to sober up and focus on her her children in the wake of her split from Jeremy Calvert.
However, recent events seem to have pushed the pride of West Virginia over the edge and back into the vicious circle of addiction.
First, Calvert filed for divorce in a move that reportedly blindsided Messer.
Shortly thereafter, it was reported that Jeremy had been cheating with Melissa Marie while he was still married to the mother of his daughter.
Messer has reportedly selected a treatment facility close to her home in the Mountaineer State, so that her daughters can visit frequently.
