When does the addict “get” the message? What is rock bottom? Will addicts such as Lindsey and Paris ever realize that they are not any different from the druggies that sold them their drug of choice?
We have heard that Lindsey admitted through tweeting that she has failed her first drug test,she tested positive for cocaine, according to a new report. Since her brief stint in jail and rehab. She failed a court-ordered drug and alcohol screening, and she said that if asked, she is ready to appear before the judge in her case and face the consequences for her actions. She has now been remanded to jail for 30 days as a consequence. Let’s hope she gets real rehab after this stint.
She also said, “Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it.”
At a hearing last month, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox ordered the actress to attend psychotherapy, drug and alcohol counseling as well as random drug and alcohol testing several times a week. Compliance would allow her to return to unsupervised probation in November. (Suntimes.com)
Fox had threatened Lohan with 30 days in jail for each probation violation. The disease of addiction didnt let her hear this…it stands between the person and the consequences.
Celebrity Rehab” doctor at large, Drew Pinsky, says Lindsay Lohan’s Friday evening tweets about substance abuse indicate to him that she’s in touch with her problem.
Retweeting Lohan’s comment that “substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night,” Dr. Drew issued his own reaction via Twitter on Saturday, writing, “She gets it now. Give her a chance & some time.”
Paris Hilton’s Plea Deal
Clark County District Attorney David Roger says the 29-year-old heiress will plead guilty Monday to drug possession and obstructing an officer to avoid two consecutive six month sentences stemming from her arrest last month at a Las Vegas hotel-casino.
“The purpose of this at this point is that you change your conduct.” Justice of the Peace Joe M. Bonaventure. Under the terms of the plea deal Hilton will serve a year of unsupervised probation and have to complete a drug abuse program. The blonde will also have to pay a fine of $2,000 and complete 200 hours of community service, according to the New York Daily News.
After the incident, Wynn Resorts Ltd. Spokeswoman Jennifer Dunne told The Associated Press that Hilton is no longer welcome at Wynn Las Vegas and Encore, and Waits was reportedly relieved of his managerial duties at both establishments. It has also been reported that Paris was not allowed in to Japan due to her actions and her probabtion status.
