Amber Portwood

SEND ME TO PRISON!!!

After several months of unsuccessful drug treatment, "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has completely given up on herself -- and has now asked a judge to send her ass to prison ... once and for all ...TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Amber was sentenced to 5 years in the big house back in January for drug possession -- but the judge gave her a second chance, offering to vacate the sentence if she successfully completed a drug rehab program.

Amber has repeatedly struggled to meet the requirements of the program, and has now given up entirely -- straight up asking the judge to impose her original 5-year prison sentence.

Amber fessed up today in court, telling the judge she hasn't stayed clean since starting the program -- and will always be a "bad girl." Amber's lawyer stood by in shock as this unfolded, shaking his head the entire hearing.

Amber said she couldn't stand the drug court program and wanted out ASAP -- leaving herself one alternative ... prison.

Amber's currently on her way to Madison County jail in Indiana, where she'll remain until her sentencing in a few weeks.

There's a problem here    

She will go to prison. She will spend every hour proclaiming her innocence. She will find Jesus. Same old same old. She's way more fun being out of jail.

Seriously choosing drugs and prison over your daughter? Classic. She's a loser who should have her parental rights stripped from her for good and Gary should get the hell out of dodge and never look back.

It's sad that her child is not her first priority in life.

All this tells me is she is seriously, seriously messed up in the head. Was she not diagnosed as bipolar? I think she needs some psychiatric help as well as a hard core drug treatment program!

to be quite honest for some individuals drug court is not the right fit, after all you want to get clean, but you have to do the work and the only program drug court accepts is one that involves a 12 step program. Some seem jail better than going through all of that crap.

How much you want to bet it's because last week when she was in court the judge ordered her to get a real job?

I've watched Amber since she was on "16 & Pregnant" and all she does is lay around, sleep, eat, and fight... She can do all that in prison. This lazy p.o.s. would rather sit in jail than do anything productive.

what an idiot, people that think "prison will do her good" or any other cliches like that clearly have never seen the inside of a prison. I remember taking a tour and meeting inmates for one of my classes back in college and one visit there and you realize why you never want to be there.
