Amber Portwood

To Be Released from Jail ... TODAY

2/24/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's been over two months since "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood was locked up for drug possession -- but TMZ has learned, she's set to be released from jail TODAY ... though it's not exactly a good thing.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the Indiana judge in her drug case is going to release Amber today for one reason and one reason only -- the halfway house where Amber was supposed to complete a drug treatment program has refused to accept her.

According to sources, people at the transitional home -- called Sister 2 Sister Ministries -- felt Portwood is too much of a handful and embodies too much negative energy to benefit from its program.

Since no one else wants her -- the judge decided to release her today ... with an electronic monitoring bracelet.

But Amber's not out of the woods -- we're told the judge will still require her to apply for residency at another home ... but that process could take months.

Amber will remain on home detention until a different drug treatment program accepts her.

This whole thing with places denying celebrities based on the fact that they know who they are from tv is starting to get ridiculous. I mean it's a HALFWAY HOUSE, do you really think most of their clients are model citizens with their lives together? Is it for the publicity, or is it just a head honcho with a big ego trying to show everyone how moral THEY are.

That won't be hard for her,since all she always did on the show was sit on her butt and stay at home anyway.

She can see her daughter and won't need to suffer a halfway house.

They won't accept her in a half way house? Then the JUDGE should have some b*lls and LEAVE HER IN JAIL until someone will accept her sorry arse. Nothing like SPECIAL TREATMENT, JUDGE!!!

TMZ, WHY IS THIS DUMB, LOW-LIFE NOBODY CONSTANTLY ON YOUR WEBSITE??????? Nobody gives a flying F**k about this girl. She is not a freaking celebrity. NOBODY CARES. Your site sucks for real celebrity reporting and so do all your stupid comments about each article you print.

It is a joke. In a civilized state like California she would be free to go around.

It is too expensive for the taxpayers to punish drug user. Look at Portugal. They have halfed the number of drug users by making it legal to abuse drugs.

People don't want to be high when it is legal and boring.

Leave her in there and mandate that psycho-therapy is part of her probation. She violates it throw her back in. Stop giving repeat offenders breaks.

Certainly not a fan of this girl, but compare her punishment to the slap on the wrist that crazy Lindsay Lohan always gets...I say bad behavior needs some tough consequences, no matter how much money you pay your lawyer!
