Lindsay Lohan wants to leave Betty Ford: Officials refuse
Lindsay Lohan is not going quietly into rehab. She's now causing a fuss since the Betty Ford Center doctors took her off the prescription drug Adderall.
If you thought that this trip to rehab for Lindsay Lohan was going to do the trick, perhaps it is time to go back to the drawing board. The starlet's current rehab stint has already hit a bump in the road.
On Monday, TMZ reported that Lohan is trying to exit the Betty Ford Center because she is upset that the doctors have eliminated Adderall from her daily regimen. The actress was taking the prescription drug for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD.
The problem with the prescribed drug is that many people easily get addicted to it and use it to maintain their weight.
TMZ was told by sources that "Betty Ford's doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug."
This news did not rest well with the Mean Girls, star who started researching other facilities that would allow her to still take Adderall. She is accusing the clinic of being "old school" because she says needs a fresher approach to rehab, something that appeals to a younger generation.
But Lohan had better sit tight. She's not going anywhere. Besides being on lockdown in the hospital wing of the rehab center, the prosecutors are not going to budge at this point.
As one source told TMZ, "She had 45 days to find a suitable place. She didn't listen to her people and just did what she wanted so it's her problem now. Not gonna happen."
Lohan needs to sit back and learn something from this 90-day stint in rehab because the alternative is jail. But she doesn't seem to think she needs rehab at all.
In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, she revealed, "I've been court-ordered to do it six times," she said. "I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab, it was like a joke, like killing time."
It looks like she's just going to kill time again. Another lesson not learned.
