Lohan ‘receptive’ to rehab programme

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly actively taking on her rehabilitation plan at the Betty Ford treatment facility in California despite stating rehab was “pointless” before her admission.

The 26-year-old actress recently began court-ordered treatment at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California.

She is fulfilling her plea deal in connection to a 2012 car crash in which she was charged with reckless driving and lying to police.

Lindsay revealed to Piers Morgan during an interview before her admission that she thought it was “pointless” to go to rehab. She was ordered by the court to undergo treatment half a dozen times in her checkered history.

Apparently the star’s entire perspective has altered drastically.

“Lindsay was placed in detox for almost 48 hours,” a source told Radar Online. “She is adapting to being back at Betty Ford and is very receptive to the care plan that has been created for her.”

It is said Lindsay does not share a room with anyone at this time, but “that could change”.

Rumours circulated before she entered the facility that she would not part with her phone, laptop, cigarettes or other comforts.

Sources reveal she has backed down from that stance.

“Her cell phone was confiscated upon admission, but Lindsay will have access to it at some point, because patients are given their electronic devices for a short period everyday, so they can call loved ones,” the insider explained.

“It’s very tightly regulated.”

According legal documents obtained by Radar, Lindsay has been assigned a recovery team.

The specialists include a physician, nurse, primary, spiritual care and family counselors, a psychologist, and chemical dependency technician who will develop an individualised recovery plan for the actress.
