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.
