PALM BEACH, Fla., July 1 (UPI) -- Former "Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham told RadarOnline.com she is undergoing outpatient treatment for alcoholism at a Florida rehab.

Abraham told the celebrity news website she plans to start 10 days of intensive counseling Monday at The Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Gardens.

"At this time in my life, I need to stay focused on the positive to get through all of the negative that a DUI has caused in my life," Abraham said. "I'm 22 and I want to make better choices and ensure I can recognize when I am putting myself in a bad situation next time."

RadarOnline.com said Abraham's little girl will remain at home and under the care of Abraham's father, Mike, while Abraham receives treatment.

The single mother of a 4-year-old daughter was arrested for drunken driving in March and appeared in the porn film "Backdoor Teen Mom" in May.
