On Monday, Catelynn Lowell left rehab after several weeks of treatment.

She took to Instagram to reveal to fans that she had returned home to her husband and daughter.

Interestingly, she posted her progress update on the same night that she could be seen checking in for an earlier rehab stint on an episode of Teen Mom OG.

The confluence of events sparked a discussion amongst fans on social media, with many wondering just how many times Catelynn has been to rehab.

The answer, it seems, is three.

And as many viewers pointed out this week, she appears to have left treatment ahead of schedule each time.

Now, some fans are concerned that Catelynn isn’t taking her treatment seriously enough.

A source confirmed to Radar Online today that Cate ended her latest stint earlier than expected – and for a very surprising reason. 

“Cate got permission to go home a few days early,” an insider close to Lowell told Radar.

“She wants to be home for a while before getting ready for the reunion.”

The source adds:

“She wants to be able to catch up with her co-stars Maci [Bookout] and Amber [Portwood]. She also wants to get her wardrobe prepped.”

The reunion the insider is referring to is the Teen Mom OG reunion special, which is scheduled to film in New York next month.

Catelynn has always taken her professional duties seriously, but fans are understandably shocked to learn she left rehab early because of the show.

Many feel that Lowell should take an indefinite hiatus in order to focus on her mental health, but it doesn’t seem like that’s in the cards.

Producers claim to have her best interests at heart, but it’s not hard to see why the latest update about Catelynn has generated so much concern.

On the bright side, the insider says Lowell is thrilled to be reunited with her daughter earlier than expected.

“She’s happy to see Nova,” the insider said. “Nova was ecstatic to see her.”
