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.

by maggie Call or write INTERVENTION. When I put myself into rehab in FL, I happened to be there with a guy who was being put through by the show. I know he wouldn't have gotten the help he needed had his family not contacted the show.

Good Luck!

I am praying she finds the young woman that I saw in her E! biography. She was a young teen, inspired and so full of wisdom for such a young girl. She is and has the same young girl inside of her today, but must peel away the layers of the onion that have grown around her hiding her from her TRUE CORE SELF, her DIVINE INNER BEING that is waiting for her to re-awaken. I know that ,THAT which IS Within her, is strong enough and more powerful than any addiction or dis-ease and I trust and know that It's Divine Intelligence is working in as and through her and all of her support team revealing what needs to be revealed, healing what needs to be healed and restoring balance and harmony to Miss Lohan and all who have hearts and Minds to hea

Sorry. I'm not buying it.

Have you seen meth addicts? I've known some. They get fat from all the sugar they crave, age really fast in the face, rot their teeth out, and get horrible scabs on their faces from picking at themselves.

While some Bi-Polar folks engage in self-harm, cutting [her parents admit she does] is more of a Hallmark Hall of Fame for those with BPD. And if she has an opiate problem then revoke the licenses of anyone who prescribed her Dilauded. A week after dental surgery, you don't need it anymore.

FINALLY. THE "B" word..OK, now we have a formal Medical Diagnosis that the insurance companies will PAY FOR.
Lindsay, this is soooo GREAT that they are calling you a BIPOLAR....it is. You'll see why in the future. But don't buy into that "You" ARE "A" BIPOLAR...BIPOLAR is a word doc's use when they really don't know what the problem is. It describes a GROUP OF CONFUSING SYMPTOMS, it does NOT explain THE CAUSE, OR indicate the CURE, ok? It's the NEW SKITZOPHENIA. Using the word BIPOLAR is how Doc's get PAID by insurance companies! ****YOU ARE NOT A DISEASE. **** Don't spend two seconds FIGHTING ANY "labels" anyone gives you, but don't be too quick to stick them all over your ENTIRE SELF either.
IMO BIPOLAR is a "spiritual" problem. Not that meds can't help, but don't believe that you are INCURABLY INSANE, even if, at times, you certainly look like it.
READ. READ. READ. Don't trust in any other HUMAN BEING to SAVE your ass. When it comes to swimming in rapid rivers, it is only YOUR self that can do the strokes to put you to the rivers edge. Good luck, lovey....You are in my prayers, (as are your whacked parents and innocent siblings.) It's Catherine, again. You know, The Bitch.
Rooting for you, knucklehead. Pull out. Pull out. Pull out!

@SarahSue FYI Mine is life experience, you can't question that or say its faulty research, i didn't research it i lived it. As for the probably 20+ Psychiatrist i have seen in my life ONE, ONE knew what he was doing. So the chances of a quack making it onto some UCLA medical board doesn't surprise me sorry.

@ Jack #86 I know, exactly Adderall is an amphetamine, but it's nothing like Crystal Meth, you don't smoke it! It's a medication that works for people with ADHD and some cases depression! But TMZ is not reporting the truth, it spearding lies and now most people think Lindsay is smoking that nasty ****!!!

YES YOU CAN smoke, snort, eat & shoot up any pill. All a person has to do is crush the adderall pill into powder form & do the rest of the procedures yourself.
I don't think she was doing nasty meth all the time because we all know cocaine was her upper of choice, but LL needed something that would be acceptable taking drug tests. LL couldn't do coke anymore because of the drug testing thus she chose adderall.
I'm sure she has tried meth.
I've known more than enough people (I don't speak with them anymore) that smoked meth & almost all of them had prescriptions for Dexedrine. It's a stronger version of adderall. They all paid the same doctor a lot of money for the 1st visit. They smoked meth & took Dexedrine together.
1 of them had to do random drug testing & she was always high on meth. She passed every drug test because she always had a prescription for Dexedrine.
LL shows all the signs of a person on meth. Sometimes people try meth because of the initial heightened physical and mental performance that the drug does.Also, it gives the user a fake heightened sense of awareness & a false sense of confidence and power. It makes users fell much more confident as well as paranoid.
Remember the email that LL sent out to the world by mistake? It made no sense & sounded paranoid.
Do you think LL got way to skinny a few years ago (before the 2 DUI/coke charges) from an eating disorder? No way. She was doing tons of coke then.

yerppi3 here's the thing , we haven't see her do drugs in three years, Infact we haven't seen her do anything except read and speculate about her, on TMZ and other websites!!..She doesn't even show erratic behavior in public, usually TMZ posts the worse possible pictures of her on here, but again you can't diagnose or assume someone has a BPD based on a picture or video of them on TMZ, dumbass!!!! Stop diagnosing people!! It's not your job to do that, you only make BPD and Bipolar disorder less serious and more of joke, when in fact people suffer from it everyday!!

I know I'm very late with my comment, but NADIA you are clearly the idiot.
We have never seen LL do drugs ever. Her actions speak volumes. Are you forgetting the email she mistakenly sent out to the world? Look it up, she had to be on something illegal.
Also, do you think she lost all that weight before 2 DUIs/coke charges because she had an eating disorder? The girl was coked up. No one looses that much weight in such a short period of time without drugs - meth or coke.

yerppi3 has a point. He never said that a blood test would determine if LL has a bipolar disorder.
Even if LL isn't bipolar, doing these drugs can mimic these types of disorders.
