Lindsay's Attorney Issues Statement

7/24/2007 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan. Blair BerkLindsay's attorney, Blair Berk, issued the following statement to TMZ:

"Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease. Since Lindsay transitioned to outpatient care, she has been monitored on a SCRAM bracelet and tested daily in order to support her sobriety. Throughout this period, I have received timely and accurate reports from the testing companies. Unfortunately, late yesterday I was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care."

What a crock. The bracelet is obviously worthless, as is Promises "rehab" facility. Promises should be shut down. It is nothing more than a country club so the rich and famous can APPEAR as if they are trying to help themselves. In reality, Promises is a joke, and they make a joke out of court-ordered rehabilitation. Stars check into this country club, can come and go whenever they please and it is business as usual on the club scene for them. Lindsay should get many times the sentence than Paris received, as Lindsay PRETENDED she was trying to clean herself up. Lindsay's use of Promises is an insult, and the fact that she used Promises to fool everyone into believing she was trying to clean herself up means she should receive the harshest sentence possible for treating her serious addictions as a joke. As for her double-speak lawyer, all he did was prove ankle bracelets and Promises are worthless. Thanks for validating what we already know.

I just can't get away from this story. Someone help this girl. She obviously can't help herself. Maybe a judge can do some good. I know that addiction is hard. I preach to my kids everyday never to start even smoking because once you get hooked it is so difficult to stop. Where are her parents? Oh thats right....out giving interviews and working on reality shows on how to get their other kids into the biz.....God Help This girl

We should soon be hearing that she has hired the same doctor that Paris/Michael Jackson did to spin it some more.

Whatever the Sheriff's name was that handled the Paris fiasco, I would suggest that he not be assigned Lindsay & Nicole. Someone with some balls should be appointed. Hope they both get the same Judge that Paris did. Serves them right.

There is no feeling sorry for any of these trainwrecks. If they don't want to help themselves, nobody can do it for them. If they choose to wrap themselves around a tree -- go for it. I don't care that they are uninjured. They are so selfish that they do not consider they could kill some innocent person -- whether it be a mother, a father, sister, brother or a child. Do they think outside the "ego box". They don't give a thought to anyone but themselves.

""37. People who left the negative comments are either evil..or just plain stupid and don't realize that addictions are illnesses that have so been deemed by insurance companies. "" Posted at 12:37PM on Jul 24th 2007 by Someone""

You are an idiot. That was a scam back in the 70's, if you got addictions declared a "Disease" then insurance companies would be forced to cover treatment which would save companies money if they thought the employee was worth it. The courts went along because if insurance companies didn't cover treatment, then the city, or State would have to. She didn't become infected with anything that night...she went out, bought coke, bought alcohol, and in a rage sped down the street, chasing a car because she was pissed off. She could have killed somebody. Oh, and if cocaine addiction really IS a disease, then I have an idea, lock her up and don't let her have any....ooops, there you go! Cured her "Disease"!

She's taking responsibility. I've also heard that part of recovery is relapsing. I wish her the best.

regardless of her fame, money, or addictions, she broke the friggen law. i believe addiction is an illness, it is one that starts with breaking the law. then on top of it, she hasnt even been seen for her first court appearance and does it again. i sympathize with the way young hollywood is hounded, you didnt see it like this a few years ago, it was around but not like this, but she had a choice on whether to start snorting or not - i highly doubt someone forced her hand... again, yes its an addiction, but it's illegal in the first place and obviously, it has taken over her entire being to where she can no longer think for herself...

If this were an average child (not a super star brat) they would be in jail. I am so tired of these Hollywood brats getting away with anything their money can buy. Paris Hilton was sent to jail (finally) why not sent Lindsey Lohan there as well. Maybe it would teach her how the other half is treated.

The judge will have to take control of her life just as the judge did with Downing, Jr. Only 21 and has done all under the sun. They're saying the gadget on her ankle wasn't even connected ...all show. This girl is in complete denial and living lies.
