Ryan Edwards: Teen Mom OG Star Checks into Rehab!

by at .

For the past year, at least, Ryan Edwards has been ... well, he's not been right.

He hasn't been acting like that sassy jackass we knew from the early days of Teen Mom, and honestly, he's looked high as a kite in recent seasons of the show.

And that's because, as it turns out, he was high as a kits.

In one episode last month, Maci Bookout was seen reacting strongly to a text she'd received about Ryan, explaining that "I got some information about Ryan and certain things he's doing and stuff that aren't very good at all."

She didn't want to go into details, but she did say that it was "really scary stuff," and that she had to get his parents on board to get him "healthy and happy and back to normal."

Then, in last Monday's episode, the subject of Ryan came up again while the moms were on vacation in Puerto Rico.

Amber Portwood told Maci that she could tell that he's been "f-cked up" lately just by looking at him, and Maci didn't argue.

Catelynn Lowell asked her if he'd consider going to a treatment center, and she said that he would, but everyone else in his life has been in denial about his issue.

Through tears, she told them "What I'm saying is that everyone else around him is too afraid of what it will look like more than his health ... it's all denial."

"They all know."

Later, she told her husband, Taylor McKinney, that she was just going to tell Ryan that he needed to go to rehab.

"Right now is legitimately about saving his life," she said.

"Most nights I'm crying in our bed talking to you about whether or not today is the day that he's going to die or when I'm going to do something about it or how I should do something about it."

Well, hopefully Maci can be done worrying about it all now.

Because Ryan is finally in rehab!

E! News reported that "multiple sources" have confirmed that he's getting help for his issues, and that he's been in rehab for two weeks now.

He's said to be "doing well," but there's no further information at this time.

There's also no word on exactly what substance he's been struggling with.

Here's hoping that Ryan can get the help he needs during this time, and that he can return to his life healthy and happy.

What a sad, sad story.
