Jenelle Evans Opens Up After Rehab: I'm "Addicted to Relationships," Not Drugs
Jenelle Evans is back at home after just four days in rehab, but the reality TV star claims that she was getting treated for the wrong thing -- blogging that she's addicted to relationships, not drugs.
Mother to 3-year-old son Jace, the Teen Mom 2 star previously signed off from Twitter on March 2, hinting that she was going to rehab "for you Jace, no one else."
Just four days later, however, the troubled reality star reportedly left the North Carolina rehab facility where she had been set to "address any addiction issues for drug use," her attorney, Dustin R.T. Sullivan, said in a statement.
Now, however, 21-year-old Evans says she ditched out early on her 30 days of rehab because she wasn't getting the help that she needed.
"I simply feel as if I didn't need to go to treatment if my problem isn't drugs anymore, and never will be again," she wrote Friday, March 15, on her Sulia page. "I need individual counseling and therapy if anything for being addicted to relationships. I can honestly admit this about myself and can't seem to help it unless I continue to get the help I need through therapy."
Last Sunday, March 10, Evans posted a photo of herself with little Jace in the backseat, along with the caption: "Just where I wanted to be. Morning sunshine." (Jace's dad is Evans' ex, Andrew Lewis.)
She added that she had originally sought treatment at a facility in Florida, but transferred to North Carolina after the original program turned out to be a "nightmare."
In her blog post, Evans also clarified that she is not currently seeing anyone, despite rumors that she and estranged husband Courtland Rogers have reconciled.
"Maybe instead of voicing what REALLY happened I'll just stay silent because silence is golden," she wrote. "But I will let everyone know that I AM SINGLE and I AM NOT DATING ANYONE. I'm focusing on myself and my son's life, nobody else's."
Earlier this year, Evans filed five assault charges against Rogers, 27. Both Evans and Rogers also accused each other of infidelity -- including his claim that Evans had reconnected with ex-boyfriend Gary Head behind his back.
Evans and Rogers tied the knot in December 2012 after just a few months of dating, but called it off after Evans accused Rogers of cheating on her.
