Catelynn Lowell has been getting some much-needed counseling and help for issues she has battled for years now. Back in March, the Teen Mom OG star checked herself into a facility in Arizona to get help for postpartum depression and anxiety issues. Initially reports indicated she was seeking rehabilitation help, though Lowell has denied that. Drugs are not the issue; her mental health needed to improve in order for her to be the best person she can be.
Initially, fans had no idea what was happening with Catelynn Lowell. Her husband, Tyler Baltierra, had asked for prayers, but didn’t elaborate. Fans assumed the Teen Mom OG star was having issues with the postpartum depression she addressed during the most recent season. Lowell had talked about her struggle after Novalee was born on the show, and her signs were visible to those who watched the episodes. Baltierra was at a loss with how to help her, so he reached out for help. It looks like things weren’t progressing, so Lowell and Baltierra decided it was time for her to work on herself. She chose a place in Arizona, which was the same facility Leah Messer from Teen Mom 2 used.
Since entering treatment in March, Catelynn Lowell had remained silent on social media. Her last post was about her trip to Arizona, with minimal elaboration. According to Us Weekly, Catelynn Lowell broke her social media silence. She thanked fans for their support and assured everyone she would be home soon. Rumors have been circulating that Lowell would be arriving back home April 16, which is creeping up. It is unclear if the date is actually something that is happening, but Lowell did confirm she would be home “soon.”
Teen Mom OG has already been filming with the other girls, and it is unclear if Catelynn Lowell was able to film while in treatment. If not, the crew was likely following Tyler Baltierra and Novalee as they navigated life without Lowell around. It was confirmed that Lowell was allowed visitors at the facility, and both her husband and her mother flew out to visit her. The Teen Mom OG couple has been quiet about how things have been over the last several weeks, but fans can now rest easy knowing Lowell is progressing and feeling better.
It will be a long road for Catelynn Lowell once she is back home. She is going to have to put the tools she learned during treatment into play at home. Lowell seems to have a grasp on her triggers, and that is one of the most important steps in treatment. Fans were incredibly proud of the Teen Mom OG star when she opened up about her battle and getting help. Admitting there is a problem is one of the most difficult steps, and Lowell was strong enough to do just that.
When it was revealed Catelynn Lowell was going to get treatment, she asked for privacy for her family. It was a request that was honored for the most part, with words of encouragement and support given for Lowell and Tyler Baltierra as they embraced this bumpy road. As the time draws close to a release date, everyone is anxious to hear more about Lowell’s journey. She has already done more in her short life than most people do in their entire lifetime.
From being on 16 & Pregnant and giving up her first child for adoption to marrying her long-time love, Tyler Baltierra, Catelynn Lowell has accomplished so much. This was just another bump in the road, but with the support of her husband and family, Catelynn Lowell will be ready to take on the world once again.
