In Touch has learned that Orange is the New Black star Taryn Manning is receiving treatment for a drinking problem, after taking advice from the producers of the show.
“Taryn was told by production [on the Netflix hit] that if she didn’t get her act together, she would be off the show. So she’s set herself up in an outpatient program in NYC,” a source reveals.

“Taryn’s taking this very seriously. She has a 24-hour sober companion and is attending AA meetings. She’s truly on an excellent path right now,” says the source, adding that Taryn has also been leaning on her OITNB co-star Natasha Lyonne, 37 — who’s struggled with substance abuse herself — for support.
