The `Mean Girls` actress - who completed a three-month court-ordered programme at the Betty Ford rehabilitation clinic in January after breaching the terms of her probation stemming from her 2007 arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) - is determined to get her life back on track now and is putting all her energies into a successful recovery.
She said: "I feel great. I feel happy. There`s always bumps we have in the road and as long as I`m focusing on the one thing I know I need to put first in my life, which is my recovery and stuff, then I`m doing good and that`s important to me."
The 24-year-old star is keen to start working again but accepts she`s got a lot to prove before anyone will want her involved in a movie project again.
In an interview with TV show `Extra`, she said: "I think that`s that something I will be able to say when I`ve taken the steps I need to take to prove that I can be insurable again. I think that will come in time that I will be in the position to say that because I don`t think I am right now.
"I don`t think it would be fair to say, `Oh, this is who I want to work with`, and expect that to happen. I have to build my way back up and I get that."
However, there may be a huge obstacle stopping Lindsay`s bid to revive her career as she is due in court later this month accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from upmarket jewellery store Kamofie & Company, in Venice, California.
She has been told she will be going to jail if she accepts a plea bargain for her grand theft felony charge, which she has pleaded not guilty to.
