Lindsay Lohan Released From Rehab

/ August 24, 2010

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been released from rehab after serving just 22 days of what was ordered to be a 90-day treatment stint.

RadarOnline is reporting that Lohan signed her own release papers, and shortly after, left the UCLA Medical Center facility. According to the report, the first thing she did once out of rehab was call her mother Dina.

TMZ reports that doctors “felt Lindsay should be released from the facility immediately, and the judge saw it their way.”

This week, there had been speculation of an early release for Lohan, and just hours before Lohan signed herself out of rehab, a court hearing revolving around a possible release was pushed from Tuesday to Wednesday. The hearing was rumored to be involving an early release for Lohan.

Lohan was admitted to UCLA on August 2, immediately following her early release from the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California. The actress had been sentenced to a 90-day jail sentence for violating the conditions of her parole stemming from her 2007 DUI arrest, but was released after serving just 13 days due to overcrowding and good behavior.

Last week, doctors at UCLA recommended to judge Elden Fox that Lohan be released from rehab after 30 days rather than 90 days. Staff reportedly deemed that Lohan’s drug dependency was not nearly as bad as was first believed, and that she had successfully weaned off of her medications. UCLA doctors also found that, contrary to an earlier diagnosis, Lohan doesn’t suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and thus doesn’t need the Adderall that she had been prescribed and had been taking. According to several addiction specialists, the unnecessary use of psychostimulant Aderrall might havecontributed to Lohan’s erratic behavior.

It’s been rumored that Lindsay’s first post-rehab interview could net her upwards of a million dollars, with OK! Magazine reportedly being the leading candidate for the big get.
