Lindsay Lohan -- UCLA in 45 Days?

8/12/2010 7:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan could have an early graduation from UCLA ... TMZ has learned ... but don't count on it.

Although the judge ordered Lindsay to spend 90 days in lockdown at UCLA for psychiatric and drug treatment, we've learned the inpatient program she's in typically lasts only 45 days.

When the program ends, the new judge -- Elden Fox -- could be asked to make a decision on what to do with Lindsay for the remaining 45 days.  Judge Fox could release Lindsay from UCLA and place her in outpatient care.  But we're told that's not a likely scenario.

A medical professional connected with the case tells TMZ it's "not uncommon" for a patient to repeat a program.  In other words, after 45 days, Lindsay would get the same treatment the second time around.  The medical professional adds the treatment is not redundant because patients often absorb a lot more the second time.

The medical professional tells us it's also very possible UCLA would stylize treatment for the remaining 45 days based on unresolved issues.

A source tells TMZ the doctors have not decided exactly how long the inpatient phase of Lindsay's treatment should last.

Ultimately, Judge Fox would listen and almost certainly follow the doctors' recommendations.

Lindsay has been at UCLA for 11 days. 

UPDATEShawn Chapman Holley tells TMZ, "We are waiting to hear the assessment of doctors and other treatment professionals concerning the appropriate length of Ms. Lohan's rehabilitation.  We will defer to their expertise and to the wisdom and authority of Judge Fox in that regard."

It's so awesome that all you TMZ posters never made bad decisions in your youth. Go YOU! And lay in bed at night with your lies that haunt you everyday. You know it's true.

If Lindsay completes her UCLA program in 45 days, why not send her back to Lynwood for the last 45 days?

Meth addition = long and difficult road to possible clean life. Others have struggled with the to the extreme. It will be a life-long process. Her two minutes in rehab is nothing...it's a small start.

Even if she gets out of rehab early she is still on probation until next August, Her party days are over for atleast a year. Maybe she will grap hold of recovery and change her life. When your young its real hard to think of giving it up for ever. If she does start using again she will get the same results and she will continue to have trouble. Some addicts never get it and die or end up in prison or a mental ward. It crazy how addiction will tell you I can control it one more time. An some people just like living their life loaded.

Good riddance!    

It's not like she's going to learn anything from rehab, because she simple thinks she is too good for it. 45 days or 90 won't matter, she'll just end up getting in more trouble because the probation won't go away. She'll just party herself in and out of custody.

I hope Lindsay is doing well in the program. Finally someone is re-evaluating her medicine, and her emotional state. This is not the luxury spa/rehab she has been in. She will never be free of drugs, until she finds some peace emotionally. She has been ripped apart by her family since she was a kid. Michael Lohan seems committed to keep ripping her apart, just to keep him in the media, and to pay for his own partying.

I saw the interview with Dina Lohan on the Today Show. She was not forthright in answering any questions. (In fact Dina is rather Palin like.) No accountability for herself or Lindsay. Apparently, Hollywood is to blame for Lindsay's troubles. I hope Lindsay is allowed to do the entire time in rehab. The less time with her mother the better.
