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.

Inconceivable!    

Her sorry ass has only been in JAIL. Now she gets to see what PRISON is like. She tried to sound all noble last week on GMA that she was going to do her drug classes and get her GED while in prison. Big deal - she will always be the loser that chose prison over rehab and seeing her daughter.

Two weeks from now she will be bawling her eyes out saying she made amistake and asking the judge to let her do rehab. Or more likely complaining that hse hasnt been released early like lindsay. When she realizes al the fame and money is over her LAZY FAT ASS is going to be so sorry. But hey she has 5 LOING years to think about her poor choices, lose some damn weight and grow out those f'up eyebrows!

She'd better learn the 2 rules of prison and FAST:
1. Kick someone's ass the first day, or
2. Be somebody's bitch

If she thinks she can pull that tougher-than-nails BS in there, she'll have a rude awakening.

Like prison is going to help her. She needs anti-depressants and a lot of therapy. Love always helps. Prison never helps people who want to kill themselves. Gosh, she is crying out.

Although I have never seen the show she was on and do not know anything about her background, I am a bit confused as to why a judge would allow this girl to go to prison over an in-patient rehab facility. 5 years in prison stemming from a drug arrest in December is ridiculous. If her name were Brooke Mueller prison wouldn't even be an option. Obviously she is not strong enough to complete an out-patient rehab program on her own. I think 6 months in an in-patient facility would probably work for her. She needs to get clean and sober and undergo a lot of therapy. Prison is not the answer. This is really sad.
