Farrah Abraham is taking a time out -- in a rehab facility. The MTV Teen Mom and sex tape star, 22, says she's checking into an outpatient facility in Florida to deal with alcohol abuse. "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," the single mom to Sophia, 4, tells Radaronline. The Backdoor Teen Mom star will undergo counseling over the next 10 days at the Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Back in March, she was arrested in her native Omaha, Neb., for DUI with a blood alcohol level of .147, nearly twice the legal limit.

"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," said the talked-about star, who was placed on six months probation and ordered to complete an alcohol education course as a result of the arrest.

Radar reports that little Sophia will be under the care of Abraham's father, Mike, during her rehab stint.

In early June, Abraham was in another medical facility in Omaha for a completely different reason: undergoing another breast augmentation surgery. In a $7,145 procedure, Abraham went from a C to a D, and debuted her new breasts while judging a pole dancing competition in Paterson, NJ.
