Lindsay Lohan speaks out about her 'sobering' rehab experience
LINDSAY LOHAN HAS given her first interview post-rehab to US OK! magazine, on newsstands in America from tomorrow.
The star checked into Utah’s Cirque Lodge rehab centre in August days after her second DUI arrest in less than two months and two attempts at rehab, left her latest stint on Friday, and is determined to stay substance-free and surrounded ‘with good people who have their hearts and their minds in the right places’.
Lohan admits that, after her second arrest, she hit ‘rock bottom’, forcing her to make decisions about the way she wanted her life to go.
Rehab, she says, was ‘sobering’ and ‘humbling. It made me look at myself, and all of the people, places and things in my life in a different way. I was in there for substance abuse, after all.’
Well aware of the temptation to fall back in to her partying ways – ‘If I wasnt (worried), I’d be living in denial’ – Lindsay is set to stay in Utah until it’s time to shoot her next movie, Dare to Love Me.
One thing Lindsay couldn’t fix in rehab, is the ongoing battle between her parents, Michael and Dina.
‘I wish it would stop,’ she admits. ‘It hurts when two people you love argue with one another. I don’t think any child wants to see their parents argue or see their family fall apart.
‘Unfortunately, it happens, and when it does, they should do it with as little effect on their children as possible.’
