Jade Cline of Teen Mom shared that her parents are headed to rehab.

Jade is no stranger to drug addiction. Her fiance, Sean Austin, has also battled with substance abuse.

In a lengthy TikTok video earlier this week, Jade told her followers that her mom, Christy Smith, and her stepdad, Corey, decided to check themselves into two separate rehab facilities.

Christy and Corey each have a history of drug addiction, and their actions have caused tension in their relationship with Jade and Sean.

Jade noted that her relationship with her parents hasn’t been very close over the last six months. She said that due to their choices, she didn’t feel as though they were doing well.

“I felt like they weren’t really doing well in their current life,” Jade said. “I’ve learned a lot about loving an addict, and I’ve learned a lot about boundaries, and it’s important to do what you need to do for your own mental health and happiness.”

Jade invited Christy and Corey over for dinner so they could discuss the possibility of rehabilitation. Jade was relieved when both of her parents admitted that rehab was something they needed “to get their lives back on track.”

In the caption of the TikTok, Jade encouraged her followers to send positive vibes and noted, “This journey [won’t] be easy for my parents but definitely will be worth it. My mom and dad are both doing really well in treatment.”
