The troubled public life of Lindsay Lohan is creating a never-ending media buzz of speculation and commentating.
Dr. Drew was among those that were quick to voice their negative sentiment towards her downward spiral from addiction:
“If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested.” To which she responded that he is a “fake doctor.”
However, Lindsay’s recent serious approach to getting her life back on track has been noticed, especially during her recent trial for theft charges.
“I am mortified how @Lindsaylohan is getting attacked when she is so fragile and just establishing her sobriety. Not at all what she needs,” Dr. Drew posted on his Twitter account during her trial arraignment.
Lindsay decided to respond positively by saying: “@drdrew thank you for your support. I appreciate it.”
The change of attitude Dr. Drew attributes to her maturity in the rehabilitation and recovery process:
“Many of my patients look at me the way Lindsay might have when they are in the throes of their addiction. When they are in recovery, they begin to understand what I was saying, and why I was saying it,” Dr. Drew told RadarOnline.
“This [the Twitter post] is further evidence that Lindsay is in recovery, and Lindsay should continue to be supported. I wish her all the best.”
