Lindsay Lohan Drug and Alcohol Addiction Woes
DUI charges, cocaine rehab, car accidents, being late or just not showing up for work. Does this sound like a person who needs drug rehab. LindsayLohan even thought so. Her journey with drugs and alcohol has become famous, or infamous, over the last two years. Lindsay even checked herself into drug rehab voluntariliy. She managed to do better in 2008 regarding her drug and alcohol problem headlines. She continues to prove the point that money and fame do not protect against drug addiction.
Lindsay Lohan Faces Addiction Problems
Lindsay had a problem with cocaine that plagued her legal record. She was twice charged with cocaine possession and even tested positively for cocaine in her blood. It was only a few days later that she spent almost a month and a half in a drug rehab center to get her life on track again.
As of August 2007, she announced publicly that her life had gotten compleltely unmanageable because of addiction to drugs and alcohol. She had been giving excuses for missing work like “exhaustion”, even though people she was working with knew about her partying lifestyle.
Drug Rehab Can Make A Difference For Drug Addicts Famous Or Not
Drug rehab really can change lives. Lindsay certainly just one of many celebrities who’ve been there. But drug rehab doesn’t have to seem like a celebrity luxury. It is available to people all across the country, with financial options to make it work. If there’s one thing you can take from Lindsey’s ride with drug and alcohol problems, celebrities need drug rehab like anyone else with addiction.
However, her legal woes have not yet come to an end. She was sentenced to three years of probation just one year ago. Also, she was recently (October) sued by the men who were in a car chase with her resulting in her 2007 DUI arrest (and suspended license). Like many others with drug and alcohol addiction, legal and money issues often drag on for months and years.
Drug Rehab Three Times Not Uncommon
Three times in drug rehab and it seems she has moved away from drugs and alcohol, at least enough to escape damaging headlines. Certainly hope she’s had enough drug treatment to really find some personal growth and relapse prevention. Again, her experience shows that it sometimes takes several difficult events and multiple times in drug rehab to really create change in your life.
Doesn’t matter how rich or famous you are, drugs and alcohol wrecks people’s lives. Unfortunately, many celebrities go through this process with the world’s eyes watching. Best wishes for your continued recovery, Lindsay.
