Lindsay Lohan

Rehab for Meth

and Bipolar Disorder

8/2/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan will be treated for addiction to methamphethamine and bipolar disorder during her court ordered 90 days in rehab.

Lindsay Lohan Rehab - Bipolar
According to a source familiar with Lindsay's case, methamphetamine and opiates are her "drugs of choice".

Methamphetamine -- also known as crystal meth or simply meth -- is a highly addictive stimulant and opiates, generally, have more of a downer effect.

Morningside Recovery -- the Orange County, CA rehab LiLo is scheduled to enter -- lists opiate and methamphetamine detoxification among its specialties. As TMZ first reported, sources say Morningside was not on the list of facilities recommended by court appointed psychiatrists.

We're told Lindsay will begin her rehab stint almost immediately after getting out of Lynwood Correctional Facility.

UPDATE: Lindsay's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley says, "I have never seen any psych report concerning Ms. Lohan which references a 'bi-polar' diagnosis or an addiction to 'methamphetamine.' I think this is a total fabrication."

One important note ... it has been widely reported that Lindsay takes the prescription drug Adderall, which is an amphetamine. Experts in the field of rehab and addiction tell TMZ there is a difference between amphetamine and methamphetamine.

We're told it would not be common for a rehab facility to consider Adderall and methamphetamine the same drug.

Love, we all know you're nadia under another name.

And what you said has absolutely nothing to do with what I said. I said you cannot determine if someone has a mental illness by taking a blood test and you CANT. That is a fact. There are no blood tests that show if you have mental illness. NONE whatsoever. You are diagnosed by a shrink. Now nadia aka love, read what I wrote VERY CAREFULLY. You have a habit of not understanding what I said, and claiming I said things that I didn't.

Again..FACE: There are no blood test or physical tests on earth that can show if a person has depression or bipolar disorder. Period.

I thought she was going to rehab for alcohol addiction. I don't think she is bipolar. I think she just spiral out of control with all the stresses in her life and what she had to deal with at an early age. She probably has some addiction issues because she has not been able to keep it together all these years. Plus, she is a smoker, takes Adderall, and drinks alcohol. That doesn't sound healthy. Not all drug addicts have underlying mental problems or come from having a bad life. Some of them were normal happy people before.

Nadia aka Love, you are the biggest moron I've ever come across.

Go do some homework before you make false statements. It is a scientific FACT that you cannot physically prove that you have a mental illness. An MD being allowed to give you any medication you want yet again, has absolutely nothing to do with what I said. There are NO BLOOD TESTS OR PHYSICAL TESTS ON EARTH THAT SHOW YOU HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS YOU A**H*LE. Now go see your doctor because you're clearly suffering from mental retardation.

Nadia, you are a complete and total dumbass. Go back to school. Every single thing you said was wrong. You can't read, nor do you have a ****ing clue about what you're talking about. You are a retard. Case closed. You proved nothing but the fact that you're an uneducated idiot with misinformation. Go back to junior high.

As a recovering meth addict who's done Adderall also, I can tell you there's a huge difference in the two.
