Dr. Drew Pinsky has encouraged people not to sit in judgement of Lindsay Lohan -- and instead offer prayer for the troubled Hollywood starlet.

Following Lohan's latest drama — she was arrested for fighting with a woman in a New York nightclub on Nov. 29 — the renowned addiction specialist, who hosts Dr. Drew on HLN and VH1's Rehab, admitted he was worried for the Liz & Dick star.

"We need to pray for her and not point, or hold her in disdain," he told Celebuzz at the CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute in Los Angeles on Sunday, Dec. 2.

"We need to hope that she makes it to through this to some kind of sobriety, some day. The big question is how much it is going to take."

Explaining 26-year-old Lohan's repeated denials that she needs to seek treatment, Dr. Drew added: "This is what denial is all about."

He said, "Denial makes people not perceive the consequences, not see the relationship between what they're doing, or see their role in all of it."

"More often than not it is some sort of horrible, horrible event that gets through -- a near death experience, loss of freedom or loss of children -- those kinds of things.

"But some people just have a spiritual awakening -- and I pray for that, for her."

Dr. Drew is board-certified in internal medicine and addiction medicine, though he does not treat Lohan.

"I know her parents are very, very concerned about her and well they should be," Dr. Drew said. "An adult child with big issues is really hard to deal with."

Lohan was arrested Nov. 29 and charged with third-degree misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching Tiffany Ava Mitchell, 28, at a New York nightclub.

Her legal woes didn't stop there, either.

On the same day that the she was jailed, Lohan was charged with three more crimes stemming from a June car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles.

    Lindsay Lohan Needs Life-Changing Experience With Christ, Says Former Drug Abuser

  • Guest

    Dr. Drew means well and agree that prayer is the answer.. However, Lohan needs much more than a simple prayer ... she needs at least a full year in a faith-based women's residential program. A spiritual awakening is necessary to overcome her troubles. She's tried all sorts of secular programs that did not work for her. Her heart needs to be right ... with an attitude of doing whatever it takes to get better for however long it takes. No time limits. No conditions. "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord,, and He will raise you up." (James 3:10) Humility is a tough thing to have in the entertainment business... when it is all about ego, pride and fame. Lohan needs a miracle. The other two posters need to wake up and get a life in Christ.

    Drew is just a shill for 12 steps, which is rooted in the 19th century Evangelical Protestant temperance movement. Prayer is the answer - its a spiritual disease. All sinners are alike. Give it to God. One size fits all...(he also blames almost everything on childhood trauma) There needs to be truly scientific investigation into alcoholism and addiction that avoids mythical cliches and police statistics and acknowledges the personal identities of addicts (age/gender/social class) and differences of the substances themselves (stimulants/depressants). Where is the scientific inquiry?? Name any other disease or mental disorder where the doctor prescribes meetings, confessionals, apologies, and belief in a God.
