Nearly a year after RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed Leah Messer's dangerous pill habit, the troubled Teen Mom 2 star has reportedly checked into rehab.

According to In Touch, the mom of 5-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah and 2-year-old Adalynn left her native West Virginia for an undisclosed treatment facility on May 3.

"She'll be gone for a month," a source tells the magazine. "She wants her girls to visit."

Despite countless reports about her drug problem— and the shocking Teen Mom 2 episode where she nodded off and slurred her words on camera — the 23-year-old allegedly refuses to come clean to friends about her medical stay.

"She's still telling people she's going away for therapy," the insider explains. "They're hoping her denial doesn't stop her from making a fresh start."

Messer will have plenty of tough topics to discuss while receiving treatment for her painkiller abuse. She recently split from second husband Jeremy Calvert, 26, after a brief reconciliation, and as Radar exclusively revealed, the pipeline engineer cheated with tattoo model Melissa Marie late last year.
