John: I’m glad to see you’re back and looking so healthy.
Lindsay: Thanks. Rehab wasn’t easy, but getting treatment for my addiction saved my life. I’d hit rock bottom.
John: Recovery from substance abuse isn’t easy, but I’m happy you got the help you needed.
Lindsay: I’m glad I checked into an inpatient program. I was able to detox, and I’m now getting the medication and counseling I need.
John: I thought you were done.
Lindsay: No, I’m now in their outpatient program, with a plan for staying sober so I won’t relapse.
John: And you’re staying away from temptation?
Lindsay: Absolutely. I’m only going clubbing two nights a week, instead of every night.
John: Uh, is that wise?
Lindsay: It will be a good test of my self-control.
John: That doesn’t sound…
Lindsay: [sound of a car horn] Sorry, there’s my ride. We’re checking out a new club tonight.
