Teen Mom OG viewers will recognize Amber Baltierra, the sister of Tyler Baltierra.
While Tyler has recently discussed the fact that he is bipolar, Amber has her own troubles. Hers, it seems, have been getting worse.
And now it is revealed that she will be checking herself in to a 90-day stint in rehab. But why?
Amber tells fans that she is going away by sharing a couple of (filtered) photos of her children, writing on Instagram:
"These two. They are my rock. My motivation. My inspiration."
That's exactly what we want to hear from any parent.
"The reason I breathe and wake up every day."
At times, her message slips from being about her children to being directed at her children.
"Mommy loves you [two] more than you guys may know right now."
She says that she is doing this for them.
"You both deserve nothing but the best and I will give that to you."
In talking about how much she will miss her kids, she reveals how long she will be away.
"I’m gonna miss you these 90 days."
That's a very long time. But she knows that they will be okay.
"I know dad and everyone else will keep you busy this summer."
Her thoughts will always be with her children.
"Just know I love you both with every fiber in me."
This step, which she is taking for herself, will also help her to be their parent.
"When mom gets home she’s gonna be the best woman I can be and an even better mom."
Teen Mom fans already understand that Catelynn Lowell's mental illness does not make her a bad mom. So surely they can understand that Amber's troubles don't meant hat she loves her kids any less.
She does not explain why she is entering rehab, but she does write:
"I’ll pray for your comfort and happiness everyday I’m not with you."
That is so sweet.
"Show the world [you're] my babies and you guys are strong and can get through anything."
And she shares some words of inspiration with them:
"Because well, you got Baltierra blood and it don’t get stronger than that"
Her estranged husband, Billy Wade Elkins Jr., tells RadarOnline that Amber Baltierra will undergo treatment at a Texas rehab facility. And she's leaving very soon.
"She's going to Texas. She leaves Friday."
Her father, Butch Baltierra, had already confirmed that she would be doing a stint in rehab.
Though Amber did not specify why she is entering rehab, it is reported that this may be for relationship issues as well as alleged drug use.
We hope that this experience helps her.

One insider claims to RadarOnline that, in their opinion, Amber is going to rehab as a sort of ... vacation?
"I think it's an excuse to ditch her responsibility as an adult."
They say that she is no genuinely trying to change.
"Not to really get any help."
This source does not expect to be overwhelmed by the results of Amber's 90 days away.
"I'd be very surprised if she came out changed for the better."
This insider also thinks that it may be some sort of stunt.
"Amber in my opinion is only going to therapy for attention and what it does for the show."
Overall, this person clearly does not think highly of Amber.
"She's just irresponsible, immature, so maybe it'll get her act together." Yikes.
We wish Amber Baltierra the best of luck during her rehab stint.
We can only imagine how much she will miss her children. She's planning to be gone until August, folks.
And while we're sure that Tyler understands, Catelynn Lowell only returned from rehab last February. Now, his sister is entering a facility.
It's good that they're getting help, but he has to be missing these important figures in his life while they're away.
