Dina Lohan Says Lindsay's 'Happy, Relaxed' in Rehab

Dina Lohan Says Lindsay's 'Happy, Relaxed' in Rehab-photo

After spending two weeks at the Betty Ford rehab facility where her daughter Lindsay Lohan is currently receiving treatment, Dina Lohan is speaking out to Matt Lauer on Today about how the troubled actress is dealing with rehab this time around.

Dina says that for perhaps the first time, Lindsay is finally receiving treatment that works at the Betty Ford Clinic, which she calls "an amazing place." She goes on to explain that Lindsay is now "a different person" because of the work they're doing there.

She's been in a couple of facilities, but this one has really changed her. They get into your psyche ... and bring the problem to the surface.

Having denied that Lindsay was an addict and contesting Lauer's rehab tally the last time around in a fiesty showdown with Lauer, Dina now admits that now both she and Lindsay are fully aware that the Mean Girls starlet is indeed an addict. "This teaches you that you are," Lohan says of Betty Ford."

Explaining her denial during her last Today interview, Lohan said: "When I first came here, initially that [being an addict] was for Lindsay to admit. As a mother, it wasn't for me to come tell the world about her problem. That was for her to do. I wasn't in denial by far ... for me as a mother, I protect ... You protect as a parent."

Continuing, Dina adds that once Lindsay is recovered, "she wants to start her own facilities to help children."

    If Dina would shut up and go away, Lindsay would be viewed much more favorably. Dina really is doing her daughter no service by being her "advocate".
