"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," Lohan tweeted late Friday night. "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. "
The actress, who was outfitted with an alcohol-monitoring bracelet in May which later went off at a party, andsent to jail in July for violating her probation, insisted she was ready to deal with the outcome of the failed drug test. "This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences," Lohan wrote.
After wrapping up 13 days in prison and roughly three weeks in rehab, the actress was required to submit to random drug and alcohol tests, among other requirements, in order to avoid more jail time. According to the conditions of her post-rehab release, the actress could return to prison for 30 days if she fails a drug and alcohol test.
Lohan's recent missives appear to have a more contrite tone than statements she made about her personal drama before her July prison stint. The starlet told Vanity Fair in a pre-jail interview that her situation wasn't as dire as perceived.
"If I were the alcoholic everyone says I am, then putting a [SCRAM] bracelet on would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I'm taking and my father says I'm taking — so that says something, because I was fine," Lohan said.
On Friday, Lohan said she appreciated the fan support and conceded she is still grappling with her substance abuse issues.
"I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also I am a work in progress, just as anyone else," Lohan wrote. "I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful."
