Lohan -- Cleaning Toilets 12 Steps at a Time

8/10/2007 5:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is at what is considered the most hardcore drug treatment facility in the nation.
Lindsay Lohan and Crique Lodge
TMZ has confirmed Lohan is at Cirque in Orem, Utah, a treatment center run by Mormons. People inside the facility say Lindsay has been a "model patient," and gets absolutely no special treatment.

A television show is broadcasting a piece tonight with a woman in silhouette -- who claims she was at the facility with Lindsay, and that Lohan was difficult with the staff, refused to attend meetings and got lots of special attention -- including a private room. TMZ knows differently.

Sources inside the facility say that Lindsay attends12-step every day as well as other meetings, talks with psychiatrists and psychologists, and receives "other medical treatment." She is not in a private room; she has two roommates. She spends time during the day and night washing dishes, cleaning toilets and doing laundry.

Doctors at the facility say she has been cooperative from the get-go. As for the woman making the allegations, there are two facilities at Cirque -- The Lodge and The Studio. We're told Lindsay and the woman were at different facilities and there was only a short overlap. We're told the woman dropped out of the program days after Lindsay arrived, "against medical advice." Several doctors described the woman as "a problem." We're told the only way the woman could have even seen Lindsay was at group meetings -- she was never in a position to even see Lindsay's accommodations.

And we have more: We're told the day of her arrest, Lohan went to an intense, medical detox facility in L.A. for eight days. She then went directly to Cirque.

One Cirque insider says Lohan says the program is "life-saving."

I'm pulling for Lindsay to choose sobriety. She has a lot to offer, and a long road ahead of her. Hopefully she'll do a Drew Barrymore and just drop out of sight for a while to focus on recovery.

First off guys, Cirque is not "run by Mormons". Secondly, where is her anonymity? Someone in that facility should be reprimanded for leaking such private information to the press. I have a few friends who work at Cirque, and I am sure it is an embarassment to their facility to know there are people working who have norespect for the basic fundamental principle in a rehab setting...confidentiality. It is imperative for people seeking treatment to have anonymity, it is one the most valuable things to ensure a positive recovery.

She's just trying to avoid a long prison sentence, and counting on the judge to let her off easy for going to rehab voluntarily. A very nice lawyer stunt and another big joke being played on our justice system.

Sarah Silverman SUCKS!    

Good for her. I really hope she gets it this time around. That’s what she needed all along…the hard core scrubbing toilets rehab. No special treatment.

Don't care where she is, whether or not she is getting help, that she is cleaning toilets or doing dishes. As long as she is not behind the wheel on the streets where my children ride their bikes, play with their friends in the yard, and walk to school. People like her should have their drivers license taken away for the rest of their lives. Driving is a privilege, not a right and she is the worst abuser of that privilege.

"LIFE SAVING"..LOL MY ASS IT IS...... THE REASON SHE IS DOING THIS AND THE ONLY REASON IS CAUSE SHE IS FACING THIS JAIL TIME AND WANTS TO DO WHATEVER SHE CAN TO MAKE THE CONVICTION, WHICH IS GONNA BE GUILTY, AS SOFT AS POSSIBLE. SHE WOULD NOT BE THERE IF SHE WAS NOT FACING JAIL TIME. THAT IS FOR CERTAIN.

LINDSAY, I HOPE YOU GET WHATS COMING TO YOU. YOU ARE SELFISH, ARROGANT,IMMATURE,GREEDY,AND WORST OF ALL YOU ARE TOTALLY IGNORANT TO THIS ALL.

BURN IN HELL BITCH.......

Lindsay should have gone to Passages in Malibu (not Promises).

I'm not sure why anyone would want to go to a rehab center run by religious people. Especially Mormons . . . what experience do they have in drinking and drugging and smoking? Just kidding, but I am serious about the really great approach made by Passages.
