Dr. Drew is still Leah Messer's biggest supporter.
Following the shocking news that Leah lost custody of her twin girls on October 13, the doctor spoke out on the sad and complication situation.

While the Teen Mom expert didn't get into specifics about Messer's ordeal, he did think she was making progress when he last saw her at the Teen Mom 2 reunion in July.
The father explained:
"People around her were starting to really come down on her. When that starts to happen, that's a real sign that the identified patient — whatever her condition is, mental health issue — is getting better. When somebody is aware enough that the people who have been so worried and frustrated around them can actually hear them that's when they come down on them. So I told Leah that I thought that was a good sign and she should learn to tolerate it."
We must admit, the reality star's ex-husband Corey Simms and his wife Miranda Simms were especially tough this time around… We wonder if that negative interaction set Leah back.
As for the 57-year-old's final word on L.M.'s difficult time, he revealed:
"I was expecting progress. I certainly wish her the best. She is working very hard. It's been a terribly painful and stressful time for her."
Hmm, we really wonder what went wrong with the mother of two.
Did the blonde move on too fast with her new boyfriend, T.R. Dues? Or did the West Virginia native refuse to admit that she DOES have a drug problem?
We guess we'll have to wait until next season to find out…
