Amber Portwood


5/24/2012 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Amber's parents did a great job of raising a woman who doesn't think she deserves better. That's the reason most of these girls get themselves pregnant by deadbeats at a young age, they don't think they can succeed at anything so they give themselves an excuse to not even try. I hope Gary loses custody and Leah gets a chance to live with a decent family, instead of being raised to be like her parents.

Hilarious! She actually believes she'll like prison better than the treatment program where they "tell her what to do". Yeah, prison's just one big freedom fest. You'll love it!

This is a confused young girl dealing with what many kids are her age-addiction. On top of that, her whole experience is on TV to be judged. She needs our prayers, not our jokes. Pray she gets into a jail that she can find schooling, programs to help her, not just be someone's bitch.

She knows she'll have easier access to drugs in prison, and no one will be drug testing her. She just wants to get high and stay high and nothing else matters to her.

What a complete and utter idiot! She can't stand the drug court program and wants out ASAP... but she wants to go prison where she'd CAN'T get out ASAP and will have to do what she's told all the time, and will probably have to go through a court ordered drug progam while there. AND, if she gets parole she will have to go to a drug treatment program during her parole. It's that, or stay in prison the entire 5 years. DOH!

But if we give her some mental credit... Perhaps she's just sick and tired of being a celebrity and figures going to the joint for 5 years will make everyone forget about her. And WE WILL... until the day she gets out or does something in there to bring our attention back to her.

But there is no escape to unwanted celebrity. No escape. Sorry, Amber. It's a brave new world out here (and inside too).

It's more depressing that her child won't have any contact with her for that length of time. I don't know if she'll serve the full sentence, but the only thing she's come 'clean' about is that she is selfish. Perhaps it's an act of desperation on her part, but she could have at least tried for her daughter...

It's a good thing this is in public record because if she end up coming back and acting like this later, they should use this to keep her from getting custody. She's a bad influence. Personally, I only had one of my parents in my life, and having heard 'stories' from basically everyone and seeing how I turned out, I was actually better off I think. I don't doubt Leah will be fine. Gary isn't so bad (there are worse people), he just needs to grow up some and get a spine.

Okay, so she just decided to give up on herself. her child and her future????? Does she realize that there are a lot more rules in prison than in rehab???
Who is going to raise this child?? It's pathetic and sad that her daughter will be kindergarten age when she comes out of prison.

Well instead of getting coked up she will be getting poked up. Have fun Amber.
