Bam Margera is back in rehab after twice escaping an inpatient program with a court order

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 so that he no longer has to reside in an inpatient facility like he did for the past year.

However, he is reportedly still required to see a psychiatrist regularly and is being told to remain sober and continue taking classes.

In May, the skateboarder celebrated “a year of treatment” for drug and alcohol abuse at a Boca Raton facility and planned to attend outpatient treatment classes over the next two months.

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

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

The reality star claimed he left the treatment center because he feared he wouldn’t be able to see his son and he feared he wouldn’t be able to raise him while he’s in rehab.

He has reportedly become estranged from his wife Nikki Boyd, who has made no attempts to contact him since his rehab.

In May, the Jackass graduate broke his right wrist “for the tenth time” and dislocated his right elbow while skateboarding, but refused painkillers due to his sobriety.

Margera has been living in rehab for a year after an incident in September 2021 in which authorities responded to an emotional disorder call.

In February last year, the former Jackass star shared a disturbing video in which he admitted he was struggling with suicidal thoughts. The MTV personality, who has long struggled with substance abuse, has spoken about contemplating suicide and revealed he went as far as to look up how to tie a noose online.

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

Also in June, Jackass director Jeff Tremaine said Bam threatened him and his family with a successful petition to get a restraining order on the former MTV star.

In a text message, Bam Tremaine vowed, “I’ll kill you with one punch.” The bad blood stems from Bam’s removal from Jackass 4 in February amid concerns about his reliability and sobriety.

Insiders told TMZ that Margera failed to comply with terms of an agreement signed by manufacturers that included drug testing, alcohol testing, taking his prescribed medication and seeing a psychiatrist.

In May, Jackass staple Steve-O took to Instagram to defend Tremaine and Knoxville for helping organize a life-saving intervention when he was suffering from serious substance abuse problems.

“Everyone bent over backwards to get you in the movie and all you had to do was not get loaded,” Steve-O said. “You kept loading; it is so easy. We all love you as much as we all say we do, but no one who loves you can make it possible or encourage you to stay sick.’
