Lindsay Lohan is preparing to evade jail time for the 77th time, having copped to a plea deal in her recent court case. The plan is for LiLo to spend 90 days in a rehab facility, but it looks like even that simple plan is getting complicated. Apparently, Lindsay is now saying that she cannot commit to being completely drug-free for 90 days because she needs access to her ADHD medication, Adderall. Sources say she’s now refusing to go to rehab without it. Click inside to learn more.
TMZ has the story:
Lindsay Lohan drew a line in the sand during plea negotiations in her lying-to-cops case — she’d agree to rehab ONLY if the facility would allow her to continue taking Adderall … sources close to LiLo tell TMZ.
Our sources say Lindsay has taken Adderall — used to treat Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and misused for various other purposes — daily for years. She believes she needs it to function.
We’re told Lindsay was steadfast — either attach Adderall to the deal or she’d take her chances at trial. Sources say Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, assured her he could find a lockdown rehab facility that would accommodate her demand.
Heller may not be able to deliver … fact is, there’s no such thing as a lockdown rehab facility that would take Lindsay, much less allow her to take the drug.
It’s pretty ironic … when Lindsay was jailed back in 2010, she got a doctor to prescribe Adderall while she was behind bars … even though her ADHD diagnosis was called into serious question.
A number of people in Lindsay’s life believe it was the Adderall that led to her downfall.
Hmmm, this is tricky. I don’t know a lot about rehab… but I feel like… they probably don’t let people take drugs, right? LOL, I mean, I just don’t see how this would work.
However, I’m sure Lindsay isn’t the first person with ADHD to go to rehab, so they must have some kind of system in place. If she does have ADHD then I could see how that would pose a dilemma. But if she has a history of abusing her ADHD medication, then that poses an even greater dilemma. So yeah, no. This request really makes no sense to me.
