Everyone has heard the Lindsay Lohan drug abuse story. When a private struggle is plastered across news outlets everywhere, it’s hard not to at least hear about it. But what few realize is how many people without the notoriety of a celebrity struggle with the same thing in the same way.

So we attempt to put together how Lindsay go where she got.

• January 2011: She leaves the Betty Ford Center and moves into an apartment.

• October 2011: Her probation is revoked for not fulfilling her community service requirements. She is arrested and then gets bailed out the same day.

• November 2011: She is ordered to spend thirty days in jail. She is also ordered twelve days of community service per month and attend at least eighteen psychotherapy sessions. If she does, she will be off probation in March. If she doesn’t, she will spend nine months in jail.

• December 2011: She is doing well. She has been doing her community service days and attending psychotherapy as required.

• January 2012: She has done well and managed to stay on track.

• February 2012: This makes three months of positive reports.

• March 2012: She is finally off probation, though she has two more years of informal probation from her grand theft charge.

• June 2012: She is involved in an auto accident. She is charged with two misdemeanours (involving substances).

• March 2013: She gets ordered to spend ninety days in rehab as part of the sentence for the auto accident.

• May 2013: She checks into the Betty Ford Center again.

• June 2013: She then switches to Cliffside Malibu for rehab.

• July 2013: She is released from rehab, but must attend three therapy sessions a week until November 2014 to keep her from backsliding.

Only time will tell if the Lindsay Lohan drug abuse story ever finishes. After a struggle of nearly seven years, she is finally doing better. She was in and out of rehab.

But when she finally committed to a program long-term with weekly counseling to help her stay clean, things got better. In this way, she is no different from anyone else suffering from drug addiction.

This is why if you suffer the same addictions as Lindsay Lohan don’t hesitate to seek out drug rehab. It is impossible to recover alone and that is why there are rehabilitation centres and treatment programs.
