There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Chaka Khan has just released a statement making right with Lindsay Lohan.
Despite recent rumors that the music legend left Cliffside clinic due to Lindsay’s “childish” rehab behavior and attention-seeking ploys, Chaka has chosen to rather focus on “applauding” LiLo for doing that which was required of her.
“To choose to do what is necessary to better one's self is commendable. I applaud Lindsay Lohan for doing the work. She is a lovely young lady and I pray for her well-being. The battle of addiction is a serious and long process, which is why I chose to address my use of prescription medications—which came about as a result of the knee surgery I had a few years ago. When and if necessary, I will seek alternative methods and traditional treatment to stay ahead of any potential problem. So many are not here today, and have lost this battle with addiction. Because these medications are legal, their abuse is often unknown—until it's too late. If not handled they are a silent killer.”
We’re glad to see Chaka put out some words of positivity regarding a very serious disease.
Addiction is no laughing matter.
