(Newser) – Regardless of your feelings about Lindsay Lohan, you have to admit it can't be fun to exit rehab and immediately have members of your "recovery group" start talking to the media. Tommy Tracy dished to Fox 5 in a recent interview obtained by the Huffington Post, but at least he only had nice things to say. He befriended Lohan (the station had a picture of them together, and Lohan tweeted out this happy birthday message to Tracy's son), and says she engaged in a lot of "soul searching" and "contemplating what's really important in life" while in rehab.

She definitely wants "to gain independence for herself," Tracy continued. "The party's over and it's time to get serious about what she's doing in her career." After leaving rehab Tuesday, Lohan headed to a sober coach in LA, with whom she'll stay for a few days, TMZ reports. The rehab facility recommended Lohan get therapy in order to avoid "almost certain failure," and the judge in her case agreed yesterday, ordering her to complete three 50-minute therapy sessions per week for the next 15 months, TMZ adds. She also has 30 days of community service to complete, which she can do from New York, the Daily News reports. In terms of her career, E! reports that she's set to host Chelsea Lately, sit down with Oprah, and promote new movie The Canyons.

The plight of Lindsay Lohen shows powerful destructive effects drugs of any kind can have on one's life, We should view Lindsay's difficulties as simply a WARNING to others of her ILK (her age) as to what can go wrong IF you choose to partake in substance abuse- Maybe part of her career s/b the lecture circuit for high schools and colleges, as in she's "been there, done that" and it would help her to process the information Most of us who have daughters have strong supportive feelings for Lindsay for there but for the grace of God goes our own daughters who had the good sense to simply say "NO thanks to drugs, I've got enough problems already- don't need another one."
