It turns out that he has not been able to stay clean. Almost a year after spending time in rehab, Teen Mom dad Ryan Edwards tested positive for morphine and opiates!
A month after Edwards got arrested for violating his March 2017 drug bust probation, reports are saying that his latest test has come back positive for opiates/heroin and morphine.
The fact that he has failed the test explains why he was arrested back on March 27.
This also contradicts his wife Mackenzie Standifer’s claims at the time.
Following his arrest last month, Mackenzie stated that ‘Everything is fine. He took a drug test yesterday and passed.’
It all started when Ryan was pulled over at a traffic stop last year for an expired registration.
One of the officers then noticed in the back seat in an open backpack that the man had a hypodermic needle.
After searching the bag, they were able to find more needles and a lot of heroin.
He was not arrested but was given a misdemeanor citation instead and a court date on April 10 of 2017.
He pled guilty and was sentenced to no less than 11 months behind bars.
But due to his good behavior, the time was shortened.
Unfortunately, he was caught on the Teen Mom cameras almost falling asleep at the wheel while driving to his wedding with Mackenzie.
Of course, the cause of his dangerous behavior was the fact that he was under the influence of drugs and so, he went to rehab soon after, to get help.
Ever since then, Edwards has been super open about his addiction problems and it looks like he still has a long way until achieving sobriety.
Ryan and Mackenzie are expecting their first baby together as well, which means that he should make an effort to get better at least for the yet unborn child.
