Catelynn Lowell, one of the stars of MTV's Teen Mom OG, has entered a rehab facility in Arizona for mental health issues.

In an announcement to MTV News on Wednesday, Catelynn Lowell stressed that her treatment was for mental health issues and not for drug abuse.

"I'm seeking help for myself and my family," she said. "Thank you to all of my supporters. My family and I would appreciate some privacy at this time."

Catelynn Lowell also shared an Instagram post about her impending treatment.

"Arizona here I come...I can't wait to be back to my normal self...this is for me and my family...Novalee and Tyler I love you both very much!!!" she captioned it.

Husband Tyler Baltierra will miss Catelynn Lowell. He indicated as much in a tweet to Amber Portwood.

Prior to the announcement that Catelynn Lowell is entering a rehab facility, Tyler Baltierra asked for prayers for his wife.

The day before she made her announcement, Catelynn Lowell shared a rather cryptic tweet.

Kudos to Catelyn Lowell for entering this treatment facility. She is not only doing herself a great service, she is doing one for her husband and daughter as well.

Suffering from depression and other forms of mental illness are no different that contracting a serious disease. Without the proper treatment, it cannot be cured or put under longterm control.
