Lindsay Lohan Headed to UCLA

8/2/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Judge Marsha Revel had a change of heart after TMZ's story about Lindsay's rehab -- and now she is headed for treatment at UCLA Medical Center ... exactly what her doctors wanted in the first place.

TMZ broke the story Judge Revel had selected Morningside Recovery -- despite the fact that the two court appointed psychiatrists along with other medical professionals were not recommending that facility. The shrinks put UCLA in their top four, but it was the facility favored by everyone because the treatment program was perfectly suited for Lindsay's psychiatric and drug problems.

We're told Lindsay will not be in the psych ward -- rather this is an intense specialized program to deal with psychological, as well as addiction problems.

Kudos to the judge for keeping it a secret and for sending her directly to rehab. Jeers to the sheriff's department for keeping Lohan only for 13 days out of a 90-day sentence!

Just a question but, if Lindsay lohan acts like the brat we all know her to be and she whines and fusses and leaves the program or gets kicked out before the 90 days, what will happen? let me rephrase that, What will happen in theory since the state of California is too soft on even D level stars like her? will she go back to jail? what will happen?

As long as she is getting those prescription pain killers, then no facility is going to help her. She has figured out a way to beat the system and has paid doctors to help her.

Agreed, LiLo is Not Bipolar. As someone pointed out, it takes time to properly diagnose someone especially when they are doped up. Coming from first hand knowledge of BPD from several people with I, II, Rapid-cycling, Manic, etc; she is Drug-Loaded. They almost NEVER prescribe Adderall to BP, Schiz, OCD etc. Serotonin stimulants (actually all) are discouraged completly. They don't even want patients to drink caffeine. It's prescribed like we all know to military (alertness), for narcolepsy and ADHD, and occasionally for severe depression. Also these are in low doses, if her doc(s) give her a bunch for years, takes more than the usual, gets into other stimulants like coke/meth and then down it with alcohol, no doubt she'll act up. And walla.. BP, I say BS!

@juggaloszuch
If she fails rehab i would definetly say jail.
If a relapse happens after she finishes rehab then i think the judge would be less likely to send her to jail if she is honest about her problems.

Morningside Recovery's website says "In order to arrest the addictive behavior we must heal the underlying wounded soul.".

This IS very true. You need to find the reason that patient feels the need to "numb" themselves -identify WHY they use. This isn't garbage. For getting rid of an addiction, you need to heal that inner person.
Addicts normally have severe issues in their past-sexual molestation, rape, incest, any number of things that makes them feel ashamed, or dirty, and that their to blame for some reason or another. They must identify that injured soul and face it and all of the issues that caused the injury. Once they begin to heal and realize WhY they use, then addiction is a little easier to deal with and they can start that long never ending journey of sobriety.

Nicole-
That "pathetic" judge as you state knows that if this girl had 48, 24, 12, or even 1 hour before she had to turn herself in, she would use. The LAST thing she needs right now is to see that dysfunctional family so they coddle her and tell just how wrong it was for her to have been in jail.
You're attitude towards LL's sentence has been exactly the way we have seen LL act. She have been disrespectful when talking about Judge Revel, even to the point of calling her a b!tch at one time. You are just a young, obnoxious little girl, who has no respect for authority just like most everyone else of your generation. You have done nothing but b!tch, moan, complain, and whine through this whole thing as if it were you to whom it was happening. Frankly, I don't know about anyone else but I'm sick of it.
Let it be known though, you have fought verbal battles over this gal defending her from all of her "haters", if you were to approach your "idol". I'm quite sure she wouldn't give you the time of day, because you are "beneath" her. I wouldn't doubt that at all.

Yes, she was picked up by someone from the UCLA facility and taken straight to rehab.
She was met at the facility by Christophe , the stylist to the stars.
Sounds like she really learned her lesson with that "harsh" sentence she was given and served. Whew....talk about being serious about sobriety. :/
Lol...at least that's the story from ROL. Who knows if its true, although it wouldn't surprise me at all.

TMZ NEEDS TO RETRACT THE STATEMENT THAT SHE'S BEING TREATED FOR METH. THIS IS FALSE. SHE IS ON ADDERALL WHICH IS AN AMPHETAMINE, NOT A METAMPHETAMINE. I LOOK TO TMZ FOR IT'S ACCURACY, AND MOST OF THE TIME IT IS, BUT THIS IS MISLEADING AND NOT TRUE. PLEASE DON'T TURN INTO ANOTHER RADARONLINE!! WHEN YOU WRITE CRAP LIKE THIS WE ALL DOUBT YOUR OTHER STORIES. EVEN OTHER TABLOIDS SITES TURN TO YOU GUYS AND NOW THEY'RE REPORTING IT. NOT COOL.

This is a joke. Who cares about lilo anymore?? She hasnt done anything worth note in almost ten years. I guess out in LA being a whore and drug addict is enough to keep you in the spotlight. She needs to just go away and come back when she can actually do something worth my time. Which more than likely will be never. This chick is never going to get better until SHE wants to be better. You cant force people into rehab thru jail and expect it to work. It will almost never work. Why we are even talking about Lilo blows my mind she is a nobody.

stop    

all this is doing is giving her more for a tell all book. She's just like other celebs that say they want privicy and then show up for the cameras. (like brad and whoregalina)

Well I sure hope she takes the docs recommendation concerning her aftercare - such as staying away from those 'loyal friends' who grant her every wish. I wonder if there is a pool on how long she'll 'stay clean' after she is discharged from the facility. When she is discharged will there be someone to monitor her in case she has the urge to 'slip' - someone whom she could contact to help her thru the episode.

Yes....I'm sure the judge is basing all of her decisions on what TMZ has reported. You guys have massive ego's.
