Lindsay Lohan admits that she fails a court ordered drug test on her Twitter page. The parole violation could send her back to jail.

Actress Lindsay Lohan confirmed on Friday (September 17) that she had failed a court-ordered drug test a few weeks after being released from jail and 
going through a rehabilitation program.

Lohan, whose career has been derailed by drunken driving and drug possession charges and a reputation for erratic behavior, posted a series of messages on her Twitter page that confirmed media reports of recent drug use.

"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test," she wrote.

"... 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."

Under the terms of probation set in August, Lohan would be sent back to jail for 30 days if the reports prove correct.

Lohan said on Twitter that she was prepared to return to court and face the consequences.

Lohan went to rehab three times in 2007, the year she was charged with drunken driving and cocaine possession.

After violating her probation in the 2007 case, Lohan served two weeks in jail in August, followed by 22 days of a three-month residential drug rehab program.

On her release she was ordered to undergo random testing twice a week and attend drug counseling and behavioral therapy classes.
