Lindsay Lohan spoke with Oprah Winfrey about her experiences in rehab and admits that she was an addict. In her first, highly anticipated interview since leaving rehab, Lohan spoke honestly with Oprah on the OWN series Oprah’s Next Chapter.
The interview was shot only four days after the trouble actress left rehab on July 30. She stated that she would be “open and honest” during the segment, where Winfrey asked many pertinent questions. Oprah hit on Lohan’s rehab stint to her perception that her parents have exploited her in some way.
Lohan admits that she hadn’t been taking promises seriously and explains why she is in and out of rehab. Lohan confesses multiple times during the interview with Oprah that she is an addict and alcohol is her drug of choice. She explains that alcohol was her gateway to other drugs, including cocaine, in which she admits to snorting 10 to 15 times in the past. Lohan also explains that she’s no longer taking prescription medication, including Adderall that she says she was addicted to before going to rehab.
The Canyons actress says she learned from her experiences and is moving on the right track. She stated that she feels “whole again”. She looks forward to getting back to acting and aims to regain the trust of the people in her career.
