How many rehab sessions should you need to clean your system of alcohol and bad behavior?
Apparently for Lindsay Lohan, six is the definitive number — for now. According to a news source, the troubled actress just checked out of a rehab center in California July 30, and is now scheduled to consult with a sobriety coach so that she can adjust to the real world.
Her three-month stay in rehab stemmed from a court decision this past May that allowed her to avoid imprisonment and instead check herself in a rehabilitation facility for 90 days. The “Mean Girls” star needed rehab time because of an accusation wherein she gave false information to police officers when she was involved in a car accident in June 2012.
Lohan has become the poster girl of child stars who went awry going into adulthood. She has had some misdemeanor offenses in the past, and has checked into rehab multiple times before. In a sense, you can say the actress should already be an “expert” in alcohol rehabilitation and keeping oneself sober.
In connection with this, Oprah’s TV network OWN inked a $2 million contract with Lohan to grant them rights to an exclusive interview with the beleaguered actress. The network’s cameras will also hound Lohan during her bout with alcohol abuse, as part of an eight-part documentary.
Lohan’s next Hollywood appearance is in the film “The Canyons” set for release on August 2.
