Lindsay Lohan's father wants her to be transferred to a rehab facility in Florida.
Michael Lohan thinks the 26-year-old Scary Movie V actress - who is more than three weeks into her 90-days of court-ordered treatment - is wasting her time at the Betty Ford clinic in Rancho Mirage, California, because she has already completed the same 12-step program twice before and it failed.
He told gossip website TMZ.com after touching down at Los Angeles International Airport from New York on Saturday, "I want to take care of some things with the court and get her transferred. She's at Betty Ford, I think it's only going to be temporary with regard to recovery, but if she goes to the Lukens Institute, where I want her to go, it's going to be permanent and I'll stake everything on it. I know she'll get better if she goes there."
Lindsay Lohan has become a model patient in rehab.
The 26-year-old actress - who is in the midst of a 90-day court-ordered stint in rehab after pleading "no contest" to lying to police about driving during a car crash last June - has wowed staff at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, with her new positive attitude and has been attending all of her group and one-on-one counseling sessions.
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the Liz & Dick star, who is in rehab for the sixth time, is taking her treatment seriously and has told friends that she is learning a lot about self-control and how to deal with reckless impulses. Lindsay, who is sharing a room with two roommates, has also admitted that although the program is getting more complicated and emotional, she is not shying away. She told friends that she is happy to have roommates because she doesn't want to be alone and is getting on well with both of them.
Lindsay Lohan will be jailed if she leaves the Betty Ford Center early.
The 26-year-old actress - who began 90 days of court-ordered treatment nine days ago after pleading "no contest" to lying to police about being behind the wheel during a car crash last June - is reportedly "freaking out" and threatening to quit the rehab facility in Rancho Mirage, California because doctors have cut off her supply of Adderall but has been warned she will be hauled before Judge James Dabney and sent to jail if she quits.
"The judge overseeing Lindsay's case has made it crystal clear that if she defies the agreement, it's jail time. Judge Dabney signed off on Betty Ford and he expects her to remain there for 90 days. If she does, that will be a violation of her probation and the judge will send her to jail," a source said.
Betty Ford's doctors rarely prescribe adults Adderall because they believe there are plenty of alternative treatments and also think that many people misuse the drug to control their weight.
Gerard Butler is in rehab.
The Bounty Hunter star is currently at the Betty Ford Center in California, where he is receiving treatment for substance abuse. According to TMZ.com, Gerard entered the facility three weeks ago after realizing he was becoming dependent on prescription drugs. His problems were allegedly triggered by the physical demands of shooting 300 in 2006 when he started taking painkillers to cope with numerous injuries he got while shooting the action film. The problem got worse when the 42-year-old actor was filming Of Men and Mavericks when he was badly hurt in December during a surfing accident.
Gerard is set to leave the facility today.
In December, the Scottish star was said to have cheated death by seconds during his surfing accident, which saw him trapped underwater after being hit by a series of waves. Gerard got caught in a 12ft swell while filming Of Men and Mavericks - which tells the true life story of late surfing icon Jay Moriarty - at the infamous big-wave Northern Californian surfing spot Maverick's. After being pulled from the water onto a jet ski, he was taken to shore and driven to Stanford Medical Center where he was kept under observation for one night.
Dawn Holland, a chemical dependency technician at the Betty Ford Clinic, has accused one of the patients of assault. Because the accused is Lindsay Lohan, TMZ has been digging to find every piece of information they can.
Currently, Holland is claiming that she’s badly hurt, that Lindsay had been drinking when they had the altercation and she’s been forced to file for workers’ compensation as a result.
Holland has since been let go from her position at the clinic for speaking to TMZ.
The alleged assault occurred on December 12 around 1:00 in the morning, when Linds and two roommates arrived at the facility -- after curfew -- following an evening out.
When security caught them trying to jump a wall on the property, Holland was summoned to do a breath test on the three women. She says Lohan refused to take the test and shoved Holland. Moments later, during a 911 call, Holland says Lindsay forcibly took the phone from her hand to cause a severe sprain.
Holland has filed a police report.

According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan and her roommates in the satellite house of the Betty Ford Clinic threw a party, and that some of the roomies were “drinking heavily.”
Staffers busted up the get-together, and now the girls, Lohan included, have moved back into the main facility.
Nothing indicates that Linds was drinking during the party.

It will cost Lindsay Lohan a whopping $50,000 to dry out at the Betty Ford Center until January 3, per her court-ordered term. Linds is a celeb, and it should be no problem … but reports are circulating that the bill is too high for her to pay.
Lohan’s probation report states that her “clothing line is falling apart because she is not available to monitor the product.” Linds will also have to wait until she leaves the clinic to receive any money from her film project Inferno, in which she plays a famous porn movie queen.
But wait … didn’t she make a lot of money from all the movies? Celebrity Net Worth suggests Linds has about half a million net, but rumors of money problems have plagued the actress for years. An April report suggests that Linds amassed an amazing debt of $1 million on her credit cards, and her current Betty Ford stay is definitely not her first rehab stint. Being addicted costs money … and stopping the addiction doesn’t come cheap, either.
So, will Linds be kicked out of the Betty Ford Center? Not likely. Like as not, Lohan is still a celeb -- otherwise, why would we care if she’s broke? -- and has all the potential to get back on top.

Michael Lohan allegedly made some pretty strong statements to the press recently about his daughter Lindsay Lohan.
TMZ reports that Michael is threatening to start abusing drugs and alcohol to enter the Betty Ford Center as a patient, as it seems Linds will see him no other way.
Coming on the heels of his surprisingly lucid, straightforward interview with Perez Hilton, this just sounds … well, crazy.
