So it begins -- TMZ has learned "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood officially checked in to an Indiana prison this morning to serve out a 5-year sentence stemming from her December drug arrest.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, 22-year-old Amber was transported from a local jail to the Rockville Correctional Facility at approximately 7:45 AM.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber was sentenced to 5 years in prison for drug possession back in January -- but the judge offered to keep her out of the big house if she completed a drug program.

Amber took the offer, but eventually quit the program -- deciding to serve time in prison instead.

Amber said she decided on the prison route because she was depressed in rehab -- so depressed she tried to OD on pills.

Prayers for this young girl. She has a lot of issues and judging her doesn't help. I hope she gets the help she needs. Maybe it will be best for her daughter if she is away. She certainly doesn't need to be in the headlines. I am sure it doesn't help to have everyone reading your life story.

what is the matter with her, she has the most beautiful little girl. seems she wants to die and they are putting her in jail; she needs to be put in a psych ward for a couple of years with some serious therapy before she dies.

Amber DESERVES to serve time given her domestic abuse towards Gary. She thinks she is a Lindsey or Parisesque celebrity bc of that show. She also thinks she's a serious badass, so she gambled thinking shed be released right away, and for the sake of that child, hope she does have to fully serve out her sentence.

Sad :( I feel sorry for her child. No mother worth having would ever chose anything that took her away from her baby and being there for her child for all her needs. The fact that she got involved with drugs in the first place is a forgivable slip up that should have influenced her to take advantage of the opportunity to correct her mistake the first time. Baby deserves a much more dedicated and diciplined mommy.
