Teen Mom 2’s Leah Messer appears to have confirmed her reported addiction issues on Facebook. On August 25, the Teen Mom 2 star shared a photo featuring the Serenity Prayer, which has been used by both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous for the last few decades.
“God, grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
The Teen Mom 2 star’s post comes just two days before she is seen revealing plans to go to treatment for “intense therapy” to ex-husband Corey Simms and his new wife, Miranda. During a sneak peek of the new Teen Mom 2 episode, shared by Starcasm on August 24, Messer told the Simms she would need them to help with her twins, Ali and Aleeah, as she entered a weeks-long treatment program at an unnamed facility.
Although Messer wouldn’t use the word “rehab” in the conversation, and told the Simms she did not have a drug problem, there have been many reports claiming the Teen Mom 2 star was abusing her prescription medication, which she admitted to taking for headaches during an early episode of Teen Mom 2 season six.
In October of last year, around the time Messer’s second husband, Jeremy Calvert, accused her of cheating and filed for divorce, the Teen Mom 2 star’s alleged drug dealer spoke to In Touch Weekly, claiming the reality star and mother of four was abusing drugs, including painkillers Vicodin, Lortab, Percocet, and oxycodone, at a rapid pace.
“I used to give Leah the pills myself; she’s picked up 30 to 40 pills at a time from me. She was withdrawing $1,000 a week to buy pills. She gives [the middleman] the money and he gets them for her. They’re in this together.”
“I’ve seen Leah pop a handful of pills, chew them like they were candy and swallow them. She doesn’t even need anything to wash them down with,” the unnamed person continued, adding that the Teen Mom 2 star claims to be suffering from pain stemming from the birth of her third daughter, Adalynn, now 2, but “it’s [actually] the pain from withdrawal that bothers her, not her back. She can’t go a day without opiates.”
On Teen Mom 2, Messer has been accused of drug use by both her ex-husband Simms and her then-husband Calvert.
