Mama June told viewers: “B****es Mama June is back! You heard it right here, we are coming up for Season 5!
“We’re not filming yet, but Mama June will be back!”
On the season finale of Mama June: From Not to Hot: Family Crisis, Mama June finally agreed to enter rehab after she dropped out of her outpatient program after only a few days.
She admitted on the episode: “I’m worse than I ever have been.”
On the season finale, June’s boyfriend Geno Doak admitted they spent $150,000 in six months on crack cocaine[/caption]
After hitting “rock bottom” by being broke and homeless, she agreed to enter inpatient at a facility in Florida with Geno.
She explained: “It has been f**ked up. It got to the point where being able to live and being able to afford a hotel was not possible.
“We started sleeping in the Suburban, for a few nights we ended up staying there.”
Geno admitted the two spent $150,000 in six months on crack cocaine.

June also revealed she and Geno took a hit only five days prior.
Geno said of if they continue to their “vicious” lifestyle: “We’re not going to be alive.”
During her two-week update in rehab, she explained: “I feel like I have spent a lot of money. I do have an addictive personality. When I think of a drug addict, I don’t think about myself. I was managing everyday, but I knew to manage that dope had to be there when I woke up.
“We would go on a binge for a couple of days then take a break for 3-4 days. My kidneys and my liver have kind of [been affected.]”

On day 27, she said: “I had to have it there to function, to move, to get up and not sleep for two days. I’m not okay with saying I’m an addict yet. I have an addictive personality, but I don’t feel like I was a crack head.”
But by her and Geno’s graduation, she finally admitted she is a drug addict.
She said: “The old June is back! I’m feeling good. Being back to my old self. I am definitely an addict. Nobody can tell what six months looks like. You can only take it a day at a time.
“The world better watch out. I’m back b****es. Here we go.”

The Sun was the first to exclusively report that Mama June and Geno entered rehab.
Family therapist Dr. Ish Major said: “She’s thinking, ‘I’m running out of money, I’m selling my things, I have legal trouble, maybe it is time to get help.’ Finally she got to the part where she was ready to take action.
“They went in very discreetly, very quietly, once they hit their rock bottom they went to a treatment center in Florida. That’s a win, I’ll take it!”
Dr. Ish previously told The Sun that Mama June is communicating with her family from a distance.

He said: “Family gets burnt out. ‘We tried and you never got it right. We poured resources into you, time, attention and affection into you, and none of that worked.’ Family is like, ‘Listen we’re done. We’re aggravated.’ It’s a very tricky way to reintroduce yourself to the family.”
He continued: “We love you, but we’re going to love you from over here. The last thing I did with Pumpkin was help her realize the boundaries. If you cannot behave in an appropriate fashion, if you cannot make decisions better for yourself and us, then you don’t get to be part of our lives.”
Mama June and Geno were arrested for possession of a controlled substance – crack cocaine – and possession of drug paraphernalia – a crack pipe – in March 2019.
