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.

Bipolar is just a garbageterm that therapists mistekenly apply to someone coming down or when they are atually on drugs. Most psychiatrists don't wait for the person to come off drug a and they diagnose too soon and call it bipolar,., as long as Lindsay doesn't apply for diability like all the other fake bipolars, it is okay. That is why they diagnose - so that druggies can get disability to buy drugs with the rest of their life.

Why do people keep saying "if she was on meth, she wouldn't have been able to hide it all this time!"

Okay, NO. First of all, when was she "hiding" ANYTHING? The world has seen her unravel year after year. She is a complete and total mess physically and emotionally. She wasn't "hiding" anything. We all KNOW she is a drug addict.

Second, who says she was doing meth "all this time"?? Just because she is on meth, doesn't mean she has ALWAYS been on it for years. She could have just started a year ago, or 6 months ago. It gets you hooked instantly. Its not like she had to be on it for years to be addicted to it. Nobody said lindsay was on meth for 6 years. They said lindsay is addicted to meth, and for all we know she could have just gotten into it fairly recently.

Unless you're very gay, all of you guys and some women would do her if you actually had the chance.

She will be back into guys in no time and no guy I know is going to hold a little bi-sexual past against a hot chick.

May be just a publicity stunt?
Her career is over so she tries to grab what attention she can get.

Yet she does look like hell for her age and that may be drugs?

Heard he place was robbed while she was gone, but where was here lover? Ripping her off?

Who knows and who really cares, these people always walk anyway, but not you or I!

The crystal meth makes sense. She looks like someone hooked on the drug. There was a PBS show about it, and addicts went from looking normal to about 100 years-old fairly quickly. There was also almost no success at successfully quitting the drug. It's very sad.

I do not think she is on Crystal Meth.....I think its just the addreall..........but the opiates are another story. Anyone who has ever been addicted to Roxys or oxys KNOWS how hard it is to get off, unless you try suboxom. I think Opiates are the worst to get off but I have never been on meth or adderall?

Has Brittney Spears or any other stars that have had problems and are now doing better reached out to her? They know better than anyone what it is like to be in her situation because they have walked in her shoes. I think the hollywood community should treat each other with more kindness. Same way with Gary Coleman. Where are the rich black stars that need to be helping their brother out with a beautiful funeral?

Not a big suprise. My granddaughter has the same problem. Bipolar and a Meth head. How do I get this same treatment for her. She is not a moviestar, just a regular person who has the
same affliction. Who could help me with getting her help like this. She can be sweet and kind, then turn into a monster. I can't trust her in my own house. HELP
