As many of us know, Lindsay Lohan‘s rehab stint was full of hella drama and that was before it even started. First she didn’t want to go to the center she was originally supposed to go to, which meant she was already in violation of her rehab deal, before her rehab started. Then she finally checked into the unlicensed Morningside Recovery Center, only to check out shortly thereafter and check into the Betty Ford Clinic. It’s been, like, a week so naturally there are already reports that she’s trying to get out Betty Ford ASAP because they won’t let her take Adderall. Nice. Click inside to learn more!
TMZ has the story:
It’s Lindsay Lohan’s worst fear … doctors at The Betty Ford Center have cut off her precious supply of Adderall — and now, she’s hell-bent on making her escape.
Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay’s claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
We’re told 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. And, we’re told, the doctors are well aware many people — especially Hollywood types — misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.
Here’s the immediate problem … Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.
And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.
Last month we’d heard that LiLo was refusing to go to rehab without her Adderall, and I thought that was pretty ridiculous. Now that she’s officially there, and seriously making a big deal about not being able to take her drugs at rehab, I’m still kind of in awe. Sadly, she seems to be getting her way with this whole rehab thing and I can’t help but wonder if the courts will end up letting her transfer out of Betty Ford. Which would be… insane, right?
