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.

Doesn't make much sense to treat her for Meth addiction while she still has a prescription for Adderall.

If she was addicted to meth wouldn't it have been a little difficult for her to not be doing it while she had the scram on? She was filming a movie and didn't show any signs of withdrawal. Not to mention why would she need a meth detoxification if she hasn't done any meth in over a month?

I'm surprised by the meth cuz we all thought it was her adderal keeping her up all night but guess now we know. The sad thing about the Bi-polarism is some doc decided she had ADHD years ago, mis-diagnosed her, put her on Adderal and never took another look at her. Shame on the docs! We might see a whole different Linds after this on the right medications - not that she'll keep taking them. For the first time, I might feel a little sorry for her. Bi-polarism sucks. Hope she decides to work at this. Otherwise, this will be going on for years.

Criminy! She's a meth head? Figures.

But she's also bipolar? I'm not convinced, though maybe it stems from her portrayal of twin opposites in The Parent Trap. . . .

Can we have Britney Spear's father be in charge of her when she's out of rehab? Look how he helped her. I would say one of Lindsay's parent's but, they're the reason she's this way. Get well Lindsay, for yourself.

So why do they prescribe her adderall which is basically chemically altered meth? Its an amphetamine just with slightly different compounds. It has the same effects, anxiety, paranoia, and psychosis when it is abused which is obviously the case here if she needs treatment for it! Thats crazy!

First of all, you don't go into rehab for "BiPolarism" anymore than you go into Rehab for a heart transplant. Bipolar is a medical condition, albeit a mental one, just like Autism, Epilepsy and Schizophrenia. I for one don't believe one second she's BiPolar-I think this is Lou knowing that if Lou can stick the BP tag on Lilo, maybe Lilo can receive the Britney sympathy. No surprise the court doesn't approve of the shrinks at this facility.Nice to shove BP on Lilo-think she'll start supporting orgs like NAMI and Bringchange2mind ? Doubt it. Brit sure as hell doesn't. It makes a farce of all those who have BP.
