Troubled “Teen Mom” star Amber Portwood is headed for rehab, one week after a failed suicide attempt.

“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” the 21-year-old reality TV mom confirmed to Star magazine. “I’m on medication at the moment and to just help me relax. I’m in a vulnerable state right now and I know people want a lot of answers.”

Portwood is reportedly checking herself into a facility in California. She was hospitalized June 14 after she was found semiconscious with a rope around her neck after having a confrontation with her estranged ex-boyfriend and father of her child, Gary Shirley.
