Teen Mom OG: Mackenzie Edwards Dishes on Opioid Deaths
It hasn’t been an easy road for Teen Mom OG alum Mackenzie Edwards. Marrying Ryan Edwards and his drug habit is difficult. In addition, Ryan was in rehab at the end of 2018. The most recent stint ended just before the holidays. Maci Bookout’s former beau spent time with his family upon his release.
That said, things always seem to be on a knife’s edge regarding Ryan and his ongoing battle with addiction. Following his latest stint in rehab, wife Mackenzie spoke out on the opioid crisis and opioid-related fatalities.
Mackenzie Edwards took to her Instagram story to share statistics on the opioid crisis with her fans and followers. In Touch Weekly notes her thoughts on the matter. It seems she wants to convey the fact that anyone can become an addict. Moreover, there’s the notion that anyone can become dependent on things like prescription pills. Even when prescribed, the Teen Mom OG notes that it “does not discriminate.”
Teen Mom OG: Ryan Edwards’ Status Following Latest Rehab Stint
A constant question on Teen Mom OG fans’ minds is Ryan Edwards’ ever-shifting status. Whether he’s sober or not is anyone’s guess on any given day. For now, at least, things look to be on the upswing. Mackenzie recently shared a photo on Instagram of Ryan cuddled up with baby Jagger. In the snap, Ryan looks healthy and the family as a whole look happy.
Teen Mom OG father Ryan Edwards was recently outed on Tinder (again) not long after baby Jagger was born. His Tinder profile included shirtless pictures that seem to be old. In addition, much like his rehab history, he’s no stranger to the dating/hookup app. Allegedly, he used the app back in 2017 as well. He was already married to Mackenzie at that time.
Where do Ryan and Mackenzie Edwards Stand?
At the moment, things seem to be in a good place for Ryan, Mackenzie, and baby Jagger Edwards. Along with spending the Christmas holiday together as a family, they did the same to welcome the new year. Mackenzie is speaking out publicly against addiction and the opioid crisis. Further, it looks like the Teen Mom OG pair are staying together and fighting the good fight as a team.
Teen Mom OG star Mackenzie Edwards concluded her Instagram story with a call to action, saying: “Let’s get talking. Let’s stop this. Let’s do something about it.” It looks like that’s exactly what the couple are doing to welcome 2019. Fans will definitely keep an eye on whether or not this resolution sticks.
