Perhaps the journalist meant to imply that Duchovny did not enter rehab as
part of one of those "court-ordered" resolutions of a lawsuit or criminal
indictment, which often happens to celebrities facing jail time on a drug
charge. But this particular case would be especially interesting if Duchovny
had been under legal threat for being, shall we say, too interested in doing
what comes naturally.
