Watch: Maci Bookout Considers Keeping Son From Ex Ryan Edwards Amid Substance Abuse Problems

| TV and Movies

Maci Bookout had a difficult decision to consider on Monday's episode of Teen Mom OG when she called a substance abuse counselor to get advice on ex Ryan Edwards' substance abuse problem.

“I’m not sure what exactly he’s using,” she said on the phone. “But, sometimes, he’ll fall asleep when you’re trying to have a conversation with him, or he’s extremely wide-eyed and he doesn’t look right.”

The counselor told Bookout that she can't continue to be someone Edwards leans on, and may have to make a choice regarding the couple's son, Bentley. The counselor suggested that Bookout may have to issue Edwards an ultimatum of keeping him from seeing Bentley, which Bookout considered throughout the episode.

“Bentley’s going to be mad at me,” she told husband Taylor McKinney. “He’s going to want to go to Jen and Larry’s [his grandparents] and I won’t be able to let him.”

“One of the things I’m concerned about is what happens in the time we talk and the time [Edwards] goes to get help,” she continued. “Obviously, he’s going to use or do something in that time period. What if it’s too much? I’m scared, but I’m more scared of not doing it.”
