Bam Margera is back in rehab after escaping from court-order in-patient program twice

Bam Margera is back in rehab with fewer restrictions… after escaping from court-ordered in-patient program twice

Bam Margera has returned to his court-ordered rehab program with significant changes to his treatment plan to avoid another escape attempt.

According to TMZ, a Judge has restructured Bam’s treatment to no longer require him to reside at an in-patient facility, as he has been doing this past year.

However, he will reportedly still have to see a psychiatrist regularly, and he will be required to remain sober and continue taking classes.

In May, the skateboarder celebrated ‘one year of treatment’ for drug and alcohol abuse at a Boca Raton facility and planned on attending outpatient treatment classes for the next two months. 

Just weeks later, he was reported missing by his rehab facility on June 13 after he fled the facility for the second time.

Sheriff’s deputies and a crisis intervention team found the 42-year-old troubled TV star days later at a hotel in  Deerfield Beach, Florida, and took him back to a different rehab facility.

The reality star claimed that he left the treatment center because he was worried that he was being kept from seeing his son and he was concerned he wouldn’t be able to raise him if he was in rehab.

He has reportedly been estranged from his wife Nikki Boyd, who hasn’t made attempts to contact him since he has been in rehab.

In May, the Jackass alum broke his right wrist ‘for the 10th time’ and dislocated his right elbow while skateboarding, but he refused pain medication due to his sobriety.

Margera has been residing in rehab for a year in the wake of a September 2021 incident in which authorities answered an emotional disturbance call.

In February of last year, the former Jackass star shared a troubling video admitting he had been dealing with suicidal thoughts. The MTV personality, who has long struggled with substance abuse, talked about considering suicide, revealing he went so far as to look up how to tie a noose online.

In June, Margera privately settled his wrongful termination lawsuit against the Jackass creators over his firing (due to testing positive for Adderall) from the successful fourth film, Jackass Forever.

Also, in June, Jackass director Jeff Tremaine said Bam threatened him and his family in a successful petition to obtain a temporary restraining order against the one-time MTV star.

In a text message, Bam vowed to Tremaine, ‘I’m gonna kill you in one mother f****** punch.’ The bad blood stems from Bam’s removal from Jackass 4 in February amid concerns from producers about his dependability and sobriety.

Insiders told TMZ that Margera failed to meet stipulations of an agreement from producers that included drug testing, breathalyzer testing, taking his prescribed medications, and visits with a mental health professional.

In May, Jackass staple Steve-O took to Instagram to defend Tremaine and Knoxville for helping organize a life-saving intervention when he had severe substance abuse issues.

‘Everyone bent over backward to get you in the movie, and all you had to do was not get loaded,’ Steve-O said. ‘You’ve continued to get loaded; it’s that simple. We all love you as much as we all say we do, but nobody who loves you can enable or encourage you to stay sick.’
