Slow dialog: 1:47 Explanations: 3:31 Fast dialog: 17:26 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. John: Yikes. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
