Ryan Edwards has really had a very difficult time with addiction.
If you've seen him on Teen Mom at all in the past few years, you're familiar with this.
He's been arrested multiple times on drug-related charges, he's been to rehab twice, we've seen the track marks on his arm -- it's been bad.
But now, at long last, some new reports are claiming that he's finally managed to kick that deadly habit!
Unfortunately, it looks like he's only swapped one addiction for another ...
What a Tough Road
OK, so Ryan has been dealing with addiction for a long time -- maybe longer than any of us know.
After all, an ex-girlfriend has claimed that he went to rehab all the way back in 2012 for a painkiller addiction.
And there have been so many times on Teen Mom OG, way before the situation was ever addressed, that he just looked real, real high.
But it wasn't until 2017 that we knew for sure Ryan was on drugs ... and things quickly went downhill from there.
A few seasons ago, Maci began speaking vaguely about some concerns she had for him, and then about how he had a problem that had been getting worse. We later found out that she'd been told about his addiction, and that a mutual friend had reached out to let her know he'd started shooting heroin.
And of course there was no denying that when, just a few episodes later, we saw him nodding off while driving himself and Mackenzie to their first wedding.
