Teen Mom | Ryan is Out of Rehab | How is he doing now?

Obviously the Teen Mom buzz since the finale aired has been all about Ryan Edwards. And for good reason! I don’t know how they do it in Tennessee, but it seems like if a wedding day starts off with the bride getting pissed off & punching the groom so he doesn’t pass out & kill them both, I don’t think that’s a good omen.

Ryan is out of rehab, and people are already making some serious claims about how he’s doing now. Wet Paint reported that Ryan was only in rehab for two weeks, and has already relapsed since being out. The source they cite, a Facebook group called Teen Mom Updates, seem to base their accusations on… nothing at all. Plenty of speculation, 0 actual sources.

So let’s look at the timeline. We know that Ryan married Mackenzie (and made the drive that caused 1000 panic attacks) on May 15, according to the Hamilton County, TN clerk’s office.Ryan Edwards marriage license

It’s been speculated that the reason for the sudden rush was that Ryan was going to rehab the very next day. Maybe he needed to get on Mack’s health insurance plan first. Some fans have also wondered if Mack rushed the wedding because she was afraid he wouldn’t want to marry her once he got sober. Honestly, I think either of these are possibilities. Why else would she call a random minister about possibly marrying them, and then within a couple of hours, they’re married by a stranger with Dee Snider hair? That’s insane behavior!

It seems a little more likely that a few days elapsed after the parking lot wedding before Ryan began treatment. When we first broke the news about his treatment, it was June 4th and Ryan had allegedly been in rehab for two weeks – which would mean he was admitted by May 21.

Then last week, we reported that Ryan was out on Father’s Day weekend. Therefore, Ryan was almost certainly in rehab from at least May 21 through June 17, but I suspect he went in a little earlier – again, maybe even right after that quickie sunglasses wedding. But he was definitely in rehab for more than two weeks, and possibly for a full 30 days.

However, even if Ryan did do a 30-day stint in rehab, it may not have been enough for the kind of drug addict he is. A Twitter user tagged Mackenzie in a photo of what appear to be track marks on Ryan’s arm from a scene in the show. I took the below screen shot while watching episode 26, “We Are Family” – the scene is right after Mackenzie purchases her first wedding gown. Ryan appears to have a track mark on the top of his left wrist:

At this point, we can only speculate, but it sure seems like Ryan may have been shooting up. I’ve taken anxiety meds before, and the way Ryan was nodding off in the car seemed very extreme for having taken just Xanax. If those wounds really are track marks, and Ryan was using to the point of injecting opioids, fans are left to wonder if 30 days in rehab is really enough to help him.

On the bright side, for the time being at least, he seems to be doing pretty damn well! He was quoted in Us Magazine saying “I am back home now doing well, and life could not be better.” It appears that he and Mackenzie went on a beach vacation also. He’s looking much healthier and his wild eyes are GONE! Though they will forever live in my nightmares.

What has MTV had to say about this whole dumpster fire that occurred on their program? They told People that the network does “not condone driving under the influence”. Mmmm, okay, but what if it gets you really REALLY good ratings? Then do you kind of condone it? Just a li’l maybe?

What do y’all think about this? Did Ryan cut his rehab stint short, or did he stay for a full 30-day program? And either way, is it enough to keep him clean?

    Part of me thinks that he really did stay the 30 days. I feel like Mac would just give him the perpetual death glare if he did not. I wish him luck. It’s clear that whatever drugs he’s doing are taking over his life. Especially if you’re going to be high on your wedding day. It’s sad.

    Time will tell.

    What’s up with all the drug users on TM? Who are the sobah- ish ones? Javi, Chelsea, Cole, maybe Brianna, too? I don’t think Gary or Kristina do drugs, either.

    Adam- meth; C&T- weed; Butch- coke, etc; April- alcohol; Maci & Taylor- alcohol; Jenelle- heroin, weed, etc; Amber- pills; Farrah- coke; Kail, Jo, Vee- weed; Leah- pills.

    • Baby Daddy #3 says:

      In all fairness I consider weed on the same level as cigarettes simply bc it’s legal for recreational use in some states. Like it might as well be legal nationwide but the government be trippin

      But what is this information about Farrah being on coke? 👀

      • El-ahrairah says:

        Farrah mentioned in her book “My Teenage Dream Ended” that she had done cocaine a few time at parties, iirc.

    • -A says:

      I don’t think that Corey or Miranda use anything either.

  3. Baby Daddy #3 says:

    I feel kinda guilty bc I tuned in to MTV to see the episode once i heard it was wild

    I can only imagine how many people did this and therefore increased their ratings for the worst reasons

    • El-ahrairah says:

      This is true! If it provides any comfort, I think only people registered as Neilsen families have their viewership monitored. They extrapolate from that to get the estimates that show 800k or 1.2m people watched. So you watching as an individual shouldn’t matter unless you watch through MTV.com maybe? This is a great point, though, and I’ll be keeping an eye out for those ratings.

    Dee Snider hair. ahhhhhh yes!!!!!

    I think that Mac married Ryan so he would go to rehab. I assume one of the excuses he may have given for not wanting to go to rehab was that Mac may leave him while he was away. She may have married him to show him that she wasn’t going anywhere. He clearly was shooting up a variety of pills and there is a good chance he was also using heroin. He is very lucky that MTV probably paid for a nice rehab and he didn’t have to wait for a spot. Some of these places are more like a hotel and not as effective as a bare bones program. The rate of relapse with opioids is unfortunately very high. If he is dedicated to recovery he needs to change his whole life and try to get away from the drugs. I think that is easier said than done where he lives but if Leah did it in rural W Virginia anything is possible. I wish them all the best. I think Mac has taken on a lot at such a young age. She is onto her 2nd marriage and has a young son. I’m not sure how she got involved with an addict and continued to see him instead of running for the hills and putting her son first. I hope she doesn’t get pregnant that’s the last thing they need! I’m also very confused why many viewers still believe the custody excuse to explain the last minute marriage. Clearly a lie even before seeing him drive. Also think Mimi was crying because her son is a serious addict and is going to rehab and not because Bentley wasn’t there. She was probably upset that she wasn’t getting to enjoy the wedding that she had hoped for for her only child but the underlying reason was she was upset that her son is at risk of death daily. Hope they all get help and that Ryan is at a point where he really wants to get sober. These teen mom shows really need to stop. They stopped showing the reality of having children as a teenager many years ago and has actually created more problems because they have been given tons of money without having to grow up and work.

    • Nikki says:

      Agree with all this Amy! It was so obvious Jen was destroyed because Ryan was high as shit and his wedding was like a bad movie. I don’t think their marriage will make a bit of difference for custody. It just makes Maci’s case stronger. Mackenzie seems like a moron.

  6. ColeAteMyCereal says:

    So I heard if you look at the part where Jen is crying you see Ryan comforting her- this is supposedly before the ceremony but he’s wearing his ring and he wasn’t wearing the ring in the infamous car scene. This tells me after the vows is when she was hysterical. Anyone else hear that?

    Regardless- your mother or MIL should not be crying out of sadness on your wedding day. I hope Ryan is doing well today, I really do, but I wouldn’t blame Maci for keeping Bentley at a distance until she’s sure things are better. That whole family should be groveling at her feet before she even considers letting her son visit them.
