Initially, when TMZ reported that Lindsay Lohan flunked two Court Mandated Drug Test, the Actress denied this claim and went as far to tell UsMagazine that “I’m fine.” Of TMZ’s report? “They’re all nuts,” she claimed.  TMZ hung with their story that the actress tested dirty last week for Cocaine and for another drug this week that they couldn’t confirm specifically.  Lindsay can be ordered back to jail for 30 days for violating the terms of her probation.  She was released from the Inpatient Treatment Facility on August 24th after 23 days of  Rehab. 

Now, Lohan has taken to her Twitter and confirmed TMZ’s report:

Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps  forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future.

This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences.  I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard,

but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful….Thank you all!!!

 We pretty much knew that TMZ was telling the truth, but it is nice that Lindsay took some responsibility for her actions.  I hope that all who have the power to help her do so.  She is going to need more that 23 days of treatment before she begins to show some improvement.  She cannot handle it yet and she needs to learn some coping skills on staying sober when she returns to her Hollywood life.  I can’t see her being successful in that environment, when she doesn’t have the support to stand.
