Kevin Horan/Stone(LOS ANGELES) — Teen Mom reality star Amber Portwood was sentenced to up to five years in prison on Tuesday, TMZ reports. 

Portwood, 22, had been sentenced in February to three years in an Indiana prison for possession of prescription drugs without a prescription, and an additional two years for a probation violation, but she remained free in an agreement that offered treatment at a rehab center.

TMZ reports Portwood gave up on the rehab program and asked a judge to reinstate her previous prison sentence.  The judge granted her request and referred her to the Indiana Department of Corrections therapeutic community program, a prison-based treatment program. 

Portwood will receive credit for time served, and may be out in just over two years.
