Although we have seen far too many celebrities ruin their careers with drugs and/or alcohol, there are a few who manage to turn their lives around. Robert Downey Jr. is one of the best examples we have today.
Unfortunately for Robert, this achievement means he has become Hollywood’s go-to spokesperson (outside of Dr. Drew) for substance abuse – whether he wants to be or not. Luckily, Downey knows how to handle those sensitive inquiries with class.

UPDATE: Sheen has been released from the hospital.
Should Betty Ford start making room for Charlie Sheen?
Early Tuesday morning, New York police officers responded to The Plaza Hotel after receiving a call about an “intoxicated male.” Upon arriving, they reportedly found a “drunk and naked” Sheen trashing his hotel room.
The Two and Half Men star, who completed a stint in rehab just two months ago, had been spending time in the city with ex-wife Denise Richards – who was staying in a different hotel room – and their two daughters, Sam, 6, and Lola, 5.
According to reports, Charlie returned to his room late last night with an unidentified woman after a night of partying. When he discovered that his cell phone and wallet were missing, he went into a rage and destroyed furniture in his room.

It will cost Lindsay Lohan a whopping $50,000 to dry out at the Betty Ford Center until January 3, per her court-ordered term. Linds is a celeb, and it should be no problem … but reports are circulating that the bill is too high for her to pay.
Lohan’s probation report states that her “clothing line is falling apart because she is not available to monitor the product.” Linds will also have to wait until she leaves the clinic to receive any money from her film project Inferno, in which she plays a famous porn movie queen.
But wait … didn’t she make a lot of money from all the movies? Celebrity Net Worth suggests Linds has about half a million net, but rumors of money problems have plagued the actress for years. An April report suggests that Linds amassed an amazing debt of $1 million on her credit cards, and her current Betty Ford stay is definitely not her first rehab stint. Being addicted costs money … and stopping the addiction doesn’t come cheap, either.
So, will Linds be kicked out of the Betty Ford Center? Not likely. Like as not, Lohan is still a celeb -- otherwise, why would we care if she’s broke? -- and has all the potential to get back on top.

Michael Lohan allegedly made some pretty strong statements to the press recently about his daughter Lindsay Lohan.
TMZ reports that Michael is threatening to start abusing drugs and alcohol to enter the Betty Ford Center as a patient, as it seems Linds will see him no other way.
Coming on the heels of his surprisingly lucid, straightforward interview with Perez Hilton, this just sounds … well, crazy.

As if it’s surprising: Lindsay Lohan is trying to shorten the terms of her probation.
The troubled star’s legal team want the length of the court-ordered terms - which are presently scheduled to run until August 2011 - lessened, as they fear she will “get in trouble” before the period ends. Lindsay is presently in the Betty Ford rehab center in Los Angeles, following two spells in prison this summer; serving 13 days of a 90-day jail term in July before briefly being returned in September after failing drug tests, although she was released hours later on $300,000 bail.
“The longer Lindsay stays on probation, the increased chances that she will get in trouble because of problems staying compliant with the terms of her probation. The only person that can modify terms of Lindsay’s probation, or terminate it early, is Judge Elden Fox.”
Lindsay could again face a return to prison, as she is due in court on October 22 for a probation hearing, after her failed drug tests, which could see her incarcerated again for violating the terms of her probation for a 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) conviction. Friends of the star have said she isn’t worried by this prospect, however, and is prepared to return to jail. “The fact is jail doesn’t scare Lindsay. Before she did her time earlier this summer, she was petrified. Having spent time behind bars, it doesn’t have that effect on her. Jail isn’t a deterrent for her, period,” one source said.
In addition to the drugs and alcohol, Lindsay Lohan is being treated for an addiction to email.
The Machete actress - who voluntarily entered into a substance abuse program at the Betty Ford Clinic in Los Angeles late last month - has reportedly had her phone usage cut, with staff also urging her to reduce the amount of time she spends on social networking websites.
“Lindsay is only allowed to use her phone for two hours a day, and only to keep in touch with family and close friends. Before, she would repeatedly and compulsively email her friends if she was ever in a situation where she felt lonely, and she would vent on Twitter,” a source said.
The policy has been implemented so Lindsay can “concentrate on herself” during therapy. Lindsay is due in court on October 22 for a probation hearing, after she failed two drugs tests last month.

Despite being on rehab lock-down, Lindsay Lohan is making quite the fuss, reportedly wanting an apology from the Californian courts.
The actress is said to be “fuming” after medical assessments at the UCLA Medical Center - where she is currently undergoing a 90-day stint as part of her sentence for breaching probation - found she may have been misdiagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and is not suffering from bipolar disorder or addicted to drugs as was previously claimed.
Instead, medics believe it is possible her prescription for Adderall, which treats ADD, led to her erratic behavior, meaning the 24-year-old star feels her sentence was unfair. “Lindsay is fuming - she is really upset that the courts put her through all this,” said a source.
Although the insider says Lindsay’s representatives are “exploring their options,” it is not expected she will be able to gain legal action against the perceived damage to her public image. Criminal Defence Attorney Steve Cron explained to Fox 411’s Pop Tarts, “No judge or prosecutor could be sued under these circumstances, they have absolute immunity. Judge Revel formulated her opinion of Lindsay based on the information she had at the time from another program. The judge could still be dissatisfied with the report from UCLA and seek independent opinions or insist Lindsay be enrolled in other programs.”
