Former Teen Mom
star Farrah Abraham has checked herself into rehab for alcohol abuse, she confirmed to Radaronline
"I'm 22 and I want to make better choices and ensure I can recognize when I am putting myself in a bad situation next time," she said in a statement to Radar, describing the decision as a "preventative step" to ensure that she stays on the right path. "At this time in my life, I need to stay focused on the positive to get through all of the negative that a DUI has caused in my life."
She will undergo intensive counseling over the next 10 days at The Lukens Institute, a luxury center, in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., beginning Monday, July 1.
Abraham was arrested in March for DUI in Nebraska, after failing a breathalyzer test and allegedly having nearly twice the legal blood alcohol level.
Her daughter, Sophia, 4, will reportedly remain at home and under the care of Farrah's dad, Mike, while she receives treatment.
