Amber Portwood Admits to Being High on 'Teen Mom'

Teen Mom star and recovering addict Amber Portwood will talk about her drug use on tomorrow's Dr. Phil.

Portwood, who was released early from jail for good behavior, completing two prison courses and time service in November, revealed to Dr. Phil that she's new at this going-on-tv-sober thing.

"This is actually my first time on stage sober, so I'm really nervous," Portwood, 23, said.

Portwood opted for a five-year jail sentence instead of rehab, and is currently out on parole. In a preview, Portwood admitted that while taping MTV's Teen Mom, she was using.

"Every time you see me on that show, I am high," Portwood said, also telling Dr. Phil that she attempted suicide twice because she just "didn't care."

Earlier this month, Portwood told In Touch that she plans on enrolling in community college.
