Lindsay Lohan 'upset by drugs in rehab'

Lindsay Lohan is said to have recently moved rehab clinics after feeling uncomfortable about a visitor smuggling prohibited drugs into the center.

The troubled actress was court-ordered to 90 days of treatment when she made a deal with prosecutors earlier this year stemming from a reckless driving case in 2012.

Lindsay entered the Betty Ford Center last month but moved to the Cliffside Malibu clinic on Wednesday.

It has been claimed the switch came after a visitor of a fellow patient brought a prohibited substance into the rehabilitation facility and "distributed it to several girls".

“She heard what was going on and was really upset by it and wanted to get out,” a source told FOX411's Pop Tarts Column. “She’s been doing really well detoxing and didn’t want to be around the temptation of more drugs… Lindsay also wanted to be at a place where she would receive more one-on-one treatment time.”

The drug brought into the centre is alleged to be narcotic pain reliever OxyContin. A mother, whose daughter was at the Betty Ford centre at the same time as Lindsay, revealed several girls have since left the centre as a result of the incident.

"[My daughter] was afraid of a relapse," she said. "Some of those who took it have now left voluntarily."

A representative for Betty Ford declined to comment on the alleged outbreak of drugs in their treatment centre.

However, a source told the US website that Lindsay was “problematic” for staff at the centre as she “couldn’t follow the rules”.

An insider close to Lindsay denied any problems though and said that she had simply left the clinic to change up her course.

“Betty Ford is [a] 30 day [program] and it starts getting repetitive,” the insider revealed.

Lindsay pled no contest to reckless driving and lying to police investigating her June 2012 car crash in Santa Monica, California.
