Lindsay Lohan

I Need Rehab,

Not Jail

9/25/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan confessed to her friends this week that she needed to go back to rehab -- not jail -- if she was going to defeat her addiction demons ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ Lindsay was surprisingly self-aware that she made a big mistake by falling off the wagon and testing positive for cocaine -- and that she couldn't fight her disease alone.

We're told Lindsay was also aware that her relapse had "ruined a lot" in connection to the revival of her career.

And there's this ... Lindsay was "remarkably unafraid" about the possibility of going back to jail -- but at the same time, she didn't expect Judge Elden Fox to send her back to Lynwood Correctional Facility.

Uh Lindsay you have been to rehab 3 times already. Hasn't worked yet. Rehab only works if you take it seriously. So far you haven't.

Yeah, well....my bad.
No, he wasn't "out of order" to deny her bail. He had that option with a VOP. And it has nothing to do with "publicity", u said the same thing with Judge Revel. And you'll say the same about the next one, and the next, and the next.....as long as its not allowing LL to run amok freely and driving under the influence then there will always be *something* wrong with every judge.

Oh, #Team Lindsay I suggest you kiss my azz!

Looks like things are looking up for Lindsay as she's having a much better attitude about her situation, and for those who think that rehab won't help her, it's different for every person with an addiction, only a select few can get clean after only one trip to rehab, while most others will likely end up relapsing and going to rehab several times before getting clean, and it's no different with Lindsay, though she would've had a much better chance of staying clean if she wasn't let out of UCLA early. Interesting that she's not afraid of going back to jail, guess she's ready to accept the consequences, if so good for her! Though like she said rehab would definitely be the better option, she better take it seriously this time though if she want sto get clean. Hope you can get better Lindsay, I still believe in you!

This was an underlying misdeameanor. She should NEVER have been refused bail, even those at TMZ were shocked and you can't call them Lindsay fans. It was a Judge who didn't know California law, how scary is that! For a Judge to overturn another Judge's ruling is rare, Judge Fox was completely wrong.

What I don't understand is this, although in another State, Paris Hilton was CAUGHT with cocaine in her possession and lied to the police. What did she get? community service! Charlie Sheen in Court for domestic violence god knows how many times, he got rehab and walked away the same day. Compare those to Lindsays treatment, Lindsay got it hard! so don't talk about celebrity justice, it doesn't exist for Lindsay Lohan, It shouldn't exist for anyone.

This celebrity is thumbing her nose at the legal system and hiring lawyers who make it possible. Her antics put judges in an impossible position and feed journalists tiresome stories. In the meantime, her career is going downhill, shades of Tiger Woods.

Maybe jail will give her the incentive to take rehab seriously?

I dunno, just thinking the "I'm special because I'm famous, although I have no reason for being famous" class needs a reality check. If she were an unknown, she'd be a "habitual criminal" by now -- and subject to three strikes and you're out.

Her career began and ended with "Mean Girls." She was good in that. Kind of sexy in that underage, plump, freckled way.

Then she got into cocaine and ****. A little later...some vagina. A little more coke, some more **** and ****. Next thing ya know you are 97 pounds, wearing an ankle bracele,t and eating snatch in jail for a Newport.

I blame most of this on her douchebag father. Is this guy a loser of what. I plan on a huge Octoberfest diatribe with Paris, Lilo, Perez(uber d-bag!)

What has Michael Lohan been screaming all this time? That Lindsay needs rehab and NOT jail. You mean she agrees with her dad? It appears so. It's never been her mother than wanted her to get well and actually took steps to get her there. Like it or not, it's been her dad.

Sounds like she is looking for a way to rid herself of a nasty habit. Anyone who has ever smoked knows how hard it was to quit - some may still be at it. No cake walk that's for sure.

By the way, in my opinion TMZ is a sleazy, evil little show that reflects nothing but ugliness. Good job on teaching your viewers how to be a callus.

I love how all the comments about what a disgusting vile pig she is were deleted. Gee TMZ, You're using that Free Speech clause to the Max with the Oksana story and the information that is being leaked to you - yet you censor here? Not cool.

P.S. If anyone wants to look very far, they will see that Harvey's right hand-man Mike has stated numerous times that his dad and brother both work for L.A.P.D - Hmmm... I wonder *how* you get all that leaked info?

The justice system is a joke. She is launching now because she got out of jail again.
