It doesn't look good!
On the last episode of Teen Mom OG to air, Ryan Edwards revealed a harrowing detail of the drug addiction that has been plaguing him for some time now. Although many fans believed that Ryan was addicted to prescription pills, he revealed on air that his so-called “drug of choice” is, in fact, heroin. Heroin addiction is an often fatal disease, and no matter how they feel about Ryan, fans want him to recover first and foremost. That’s why this recently released video is so alarming.
Ryan revealed that he was checking into a rehab program for his addiction, seeking treatment for withdrawals and hoping to never turn to drugs again. But this clip has many fans wondering if the treatment worked at all, or if Ryan has already turned back to drugs.
Anyone who has gone through any type of addiction can tell you that relapse is just a part of recovery. It’s common for addicts to have a few bumps along the road to getting clean. That much has been proven recently as Tyler’s father Butch admitted to relapsing on cocaine after being clean for months. But ideally a long term rehabilitation program can make relapses less common and even eliminate them entirely through hard work and deterination.
Ryan has been open about his path to recovery on Teen Mom OG, but Maci has been skeptical from day one. She’s made it very clear that she thinks the best path for Ryan would be to have an extended stay in rehab and then stay in a halfway house before coming home to be with family. Ryan, however, chose what may be the polar opposite of this: after a mere 21 days in rehab, he is already back, living with his family. Now, some fans are worried that there are already signs Ryan is relapsing.
In this deleted scene, Ryan and Mackenzie hit the road to look for a new home. They discuss a new listing they’re going to check out, but that’s not what has fans concerned. In the video, Ryan seems to be sluggish and even appears to be nodding off in some places. Although it’s possible he’s just tired from his time in rehab, it reminded many fans of the footage of him driving to his own wedding while so high he could hardly keep his eyes open.
Check out the full clip below.
“DUDE is [f–ked up],” wrote Reddit user janzte. “Bottom line. Best thing Maci can do is make sure he is tested before every ‘visit’ just like Adam.”
User firedragonfuckyou wrote, “As a recent former opiate addict, Ryan sure sounds high in this clip. But with 21 days in rehab I mean..who didn’t see this coming besides the dumba– Edwards family.”
But that’s not the only thing fans spotted that had them furious. Many fans were upset that neither of them were wearing seatbelts, even though the cameras were rolling. “All i can see is two idiots without seatbelts on,” user ajs1004 wrote. Unfortunately, when it comes to driving safety, Maci isn’t doing much better. She was recently slammed by fans for texting while driving with her children in the back seat.
Do you think that Ryan’s behavior in this clip could mean he’s relapsed on his drug of choice? Let us know in the comments and SHARE this article!
