Is Tyler Baltierra headed to rehab? A close friend of the Teen Mom OG star recently claimed that he is open to seeking treatment now that his wife Catelynn Lowell is in a much better place.

"He isn’t opposed to it,” actor River Ceballos told Radar Online. "I definitely think it would be beneficial. He does have a lot of unresolved issues from his past. Stuff he’s had to deal with — Catelynn, stuff at home, his father — that he’s had to put on the back burner. I could definitely see that in a good way. I think it would really help him."

However, Tyler quickly shot down rehab rumors following the interview. "I am not going to a rehab. I had a therapy appointment yesterday, I do Alpha Stim sessions & looking into EMDR therapy as well," he tweeted. "Also, looking into a 7 day holistic spiritual retreat to reconnect with myself. Everyone has been really sweet about this & I appreciate it."

Last week, Tyler worried fans when he opened about his depression on social media. "Laying in bed next to my peacefully sleeping wife. I can hear my daughter snoozing away through the monitor in her room. My dog is cuddled up on the floor next to me… & yet I feel so empty… so alone," he tweeted. Catelynn quickly showed her support to her husband, responding, "I am so sorry babe… I will do anything to help you… you are an amazing husband and father and are so caring, funny, and thoughtful… don’t let life bring you down because you are one strong man… I love you so much."

Earlier this season, Tyler contemplated entering rehab but choose to focus on his daughter and his health, dropping over 30 pounds. "I started caring more about what kind of food I put in my body & most of all, I wanted to challenge & prove to myself that I can do it," he enthusiastically wrote. "Today I’m 35lbs down & It has ALSO been 2 years & 26 days since I QUIT SMOKING CIGARETTES & I feel FANTASTIC! I’m crushing these personal goals & loving the rewards that come with it!"
