She then added that the actress, “wants to start her own facilities, help other children.”

Despite some wariness stemming from Lindsay’s past failed attempts at recovery, Dina added they, “can only be positive and look to the future to help other families.”

Dina also touched on speculation that Lindsay might once again be released from rehab early. This time however, Dina says Lindsay is in it for the long haul at the Betty Ford Center.

“Absolutely,” Dina said about wanting Lindsay to remain at the facility until January. “Lindsay wants to stay. She’s learning the triggers points…it’s a lifelong journey.”

Dina also said that the responsibility to remain sober is squarely on her daughter’s shoulders from now on. “It’s her journey. It’s up to her.”
