Amber Portwood

To Be Released from Jail ... TODAY

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

0223_amber_portwood_EX
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.

Interesting, most prisons would keep her locked up until a facility has a bed. Indiana is beginning to look like California/Nevada/Georgia/Texas and that's not a good thing.

This will only go to reinforce her 'Princess' attitude and sense of entitlement. Jail is a good drug treatment program; the only drugs you can score have been shoved up someone's orifice. Please, someone make her EARN something before she's allowed back into society!

She reminds me of the PIG in the old 90's version of the FLITSTONES. The pig they had under the sink acting as a garbage disposal! HAHAAH

House arrest should be a breeze for her considering on the show she spends 90% of he time either in bed or on the couch. Only thing she will need to do is find someone to bring her the crappy fast food she is always shoveling in her pie hole.

ooook - so, this girl is a mess. that is obvious. but, she should really sue the sister 2 sister mins. it was completely unethical for them to deny her entry, just because they are fully aware of her actions. the reason that they have this information is that she is a reality star. there are plenty of other ppl in that program, who have more than likely gone thru the same things that portwood is going through...and duh. that's why they're there! they should be ashamed of themselves. i think that they're a non-prof org too! sounds like the govt should take the funding from s2s and give it to an organization that is actually helping people. shame on s2s...the first step in the system failure for this girl. that's a real f*king shame.

I agree that it is unethical for a halfway house to accept her. They signed up to work w and help addicts. They are sending this girl back into the world ill-equipped. She needs treatment and therapy and to be around other healing women. Her attitude may suck at first but most programs teach humbleness and acceptance. It's a shame this place doesn't. They should lose funding as it doesn't sound like they are doing a very good job.

I was going to say that O think she will likely be arrested again before Memorial Day. But -- now that I see she is under house arrest, I am going to revise that that and say she will be arrested by St Patrick's day.
