Farrah Abraham checks into treatment center: Watch her video statement
Former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham is facing her trauma head on.
The 30-year-old TV personality took to Instagram this week to reveal to her fans that she’s decided to take action in her mental health battle. Farrah explained that she’s checked herself into a treatment center, determined to work through her emotional struggles that have come about from trauma she’s experienced.
As reported by Us Weekly, this big decision comes soon after Farrah was arrested in January 2022 outside a club in Hollywood, California, after allegedly slapping a security guard. The reality star spoke out on the situation via her Instagram Story, telling her followers that, “he should be fired and in jail for [battery].” She called the experience “traumatizing.”
Fast forward to March 2022, and the Ex on the Beach alum is putting herself first and deciding to work on herself. In the video she shared, she says: “I am taking time for my healing. I have ignored people for over 11 months after having a sexual assault and having my whole body break down, my whole brain break down.”

As expected, Farrah received mixed responses in her comments section. Many of her fans applauded her on making this big decision, while others still trolled her for one reason or another. It’s safe to say the reality star can’t please anyone, and fortunately it seems like that doesn’t matter to her.
In the video, Farrah says she’s going to the treatment center for 28 days, touching on some of the traumatic experiences she’s faced in the past year. Noting she’s a workaholic, she explains it’s been difficult for her to step away from her career to make this decision. But ultimately, it’s a decision she believes in and feels will help her life tremendously. Go Farrah!
Anyone who’s been following Farrah since her MTV debut on 16 & Pregnant knows that she’s faced her fair share of difficult experiences, including losing the father of her child, arrests, rehab, and more. We’re glad she’s deciding to take care of her mental health proactively, as this will only make her a stronger person and a better mom.
