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.

That would suck a rehab in a hospital. Can you imagine the nut cases she will have to deal with.And living in a hospital for 3 mo. no TV no smoking..Oh hell no..The judge is making a bad move. If she goes into a rehab and she hates it the whole time she wont get anything out of it. She sure in the hell wont get connected with anyone there. The patients there will give her **** because they feel shes spoiled and want her to suffer in rehab. I cant believe the bitch sent her to UCLA . Judge if your reading this you made a BIG mistake.The Morning Side would have been great for Lindsay. You just want her to suffer in a hospital rehab.You think the tuffer you are it will get her attention WRONG.. This 90 rehab could of saved her life but no you send her to UCLA.eI hope Maybe they are saying she is going to UCLA and secretly in Morning Side to keep the press away.God I hope so.

Agree with the person who said she's trying to uncover the leaks. She said in the courtroom last time she was trying to find out who was leaking information.

I couldn't fathom why she'd go against the advice of the docs when the whole time she's been 100% by the book. No suprise Lindsay has mental health issues though - whether they lead to, or result from, the drug use treating her addictions alone is treating the symptom not the disease. (Even if I think part of her disease is narcissim)

If she has Bi-Polar she has a long road to recovery ahead of her. My husband has this illness and it is a very life consuming illness for both him and us. Everyone is calling her names like "whore" and such and I was wondering how many of the name callers know her personally? No one is perfect and the majority of the haters should not be throwing stones before taking a good look at themselves first!!!! From someone who lives with a person with this illness everyday, cut her a little slack!

@Linda
She is definetly at UCLA
I agree this judge is taking a special interest in this case and it is unfair to Lindsay.
She delayed her own ****ing vacation just to set the bail conditions when a stand in could have done it.

IF she prays, it's probably just selfishness. Put that energy into something important, like getting help for your obsession with someone who is a model for what's wrong with this world.

She is in the psych ward, there is no division there. I know people who have been/are in there including myself and yeah you can smoke every 2 hours, even the ones in detox. They musta changed things up because smoke break and occupational therapy were the only things worth looking forward to a couple years ago.

But yeah, it is a break from life in a way, it isn't what you think it is to be there.

In 2007, the Ninth Circuit Court (which includes California) ruled that the courts cannot mandate people into Alcoholics Anonymous or programs based on the 12 Steps. They are "religious in nature" and violate the Establishment Clause.

The program that the judge tried to force on Lohan was 12step facilitation. The judge ignored the law and the recommendations of "court appointed psychiatrists along with other medical professionals". Lohan would have had grounds for a great lawsuit had she not been moved to UCLA.

Lohan has already been through at least three rehabs using the 12step method, and the judge thinks she needs more of the same? AA is basically faith healing, you pray to God so that He might remove your urges to drink. Maybe at UCLA, she'll get some alcohol/drug information and some coping skills that will help.

raysny:

I have no idea where you got your misinformation about AA and other 12 step programs. None of them promotes a belief in God. None of them is based on praying. None of them promotes the idea of praying to any god to keep you sober.
I have twenty years of clean sobriety. I have read the AA big book from cover to cover, in several editions, many times.
I have no doubt that you have not seen one, let alone read it.
AA espouses a belief in "a power greater than ourselves." No one is required to pray to any power.
Perhaps you should learn what your are against before you attack it.
To attack from ignorance is ignorant itself.
If you look into it you may find that many truly faith based programs are at odds with AA because they feel it does NOT promote a belief in "god."

For the folks unfamiliar with AA; The first thing a AA member does is try to discredit the person who questions the program.

Laffn Bear, I've also read the BB cover to cover, the 12 & 12, and the bulk of conference approved literature. And I also read all the stats and studies, the facts and figures, and all about real alcoholism treatment.

You claim, "None of them promotes a belief in God", yet look at these seven of the twelve steps:

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
11. Sought through PRAYER AND MEDITATION to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

On pages 76-77 of the Big Book, Wilson talks of downplaying the religious angle:
"To some people we need not, and probably should not emphasize the spiritual feature on our first approach. We might prejudice them. At the moment we are trying to put our lives in order. But this is not an end in itself. Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us." Right, nothing to do with God. The courts for 16 states (so far) have declared AA to be at least "religious in nature" and that court mandated AA violates the Establishment Clause.

George Vaillant, former Harvard professor, researcher, and AA trustee undertook the largest study of alcoholics at the time and found that AA did not improve on the rate of natural remission: people quitting on their own. He also found that AA increased the mortality rate. He said of his findings: "Not only had we failed to alter the natural history of alcoholism, but our death rate of three percent a year was appalling."

@ Laffin Bear:

What? Twenty years in AA, yet you've never once heard an admonishment to pray to God? Twenty years, yet in reading the Big Book you've missed all the references to God and the necessity of Finding God and Coming to Believe?

I speak from experience. 12+ successful years in AA, and I've read the Big Book and the 12&12 repeatedly. And I've listened to more steppers than I can count all going on about the necessity of God belief and prayer in more meetings than I can count.

I'm amazed at the steppers who claim it's spiritual, not religious, and are blind, blind, blind to the heavily religious God promotion in the Big Book and the 12&12.

AA says a higher power that they choose to call God.
Perhaps you are confusing the AA representation of a god with the Judaic-Christian concept of a one God.
This is common and the word God triggers those with a bone to pick to anger.
AA is a spiritual program in the respect that we are all encouraged to believe in a power greater than ourselves. There is no mention of who or what we are to believe. You seem to overlook that.
I would suggest that if you do not believe there is a power greater than yourself, stick a bread knife in a wall socket.
I can look out of any window and see things are more powerful than myself.
Perhaps you would stand in the road in front of a speeding car and see if there is a power greater than yourself.
If you think of this definition when you read the AA literature it is, indeed, a spiritual program and was created to be that way.
Recently the fundamental Christians have been boasting of a survey of Americans that shows the vast majority believe in God. What the survey asked was, you guessed, not a J-C definition but "a higher power."
Perhaps your crusade to defeat AA has blinded you to the truth.
I would suggest you lose the concept that God is the only the god of the Abraham and Jesus.
