Lindsay Lohan Chooses Rehab

9/26/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan is about to re-enter rehab ... and it's her decision.

Sources with direct and specific knowledge of the situation tell TMZ Lindsay will enter a live-in facility outside of Los Angeles within days. Lindsay is now agonizingly aware she has an addiction problem and also acknowledges the reality -- addicts often backslide before they get better.

We're told Lindsay is telling people she doesn't want this type of life anymore. She says she wants to get better and wants to do whatever it takes at this point ... irrespective of what Judge Elden Fox does to her.

I don't get it. LINDSEY gets to decide she doesn't want to go to jail???? The Cocaine Queen would rather go to rehab -- much nicer environment, I'd have to agree. But who made her judge? I'm sick to death of hearing about this LOSER!

I just got all the lumber put away from the gallows that I had to take down when she went to jail instead of entertaining the town with a good hangin!! Oh well I will start all over again and rebuild it again - we will put up posters announcing the date and time for the event!! Stay tuned!!

Yes, it's her choice because she sees it as a way to avoid jail (she'll be in the middle of her rehab program when her trial comes around and they will scream about how detrimental it will be to interrupt an ongoing program). If she does use that as an excuse to avoid jail at her hearing, she should be required to do her jail time (and continue counseling) in jail after being discharged from the rehab center. She wasn't charged criminally for being a drug addict or alcoholic, there were other crimes for which she was charged and cleaning up her act were terms of probation to avoid jail time - she continuously violates the terms of her probation and should do jail time as a punishment for her crimes. Jail is not only about rehabilitation, it is also about penalizing a person for criminal behaviour.

Judge Fox will probably KIBOSH this since she is required to be in court on Oct 22nd.

Going to rehab without permission from the Judge is a NO-NO. She still is on probation with her current conditions that were set upon her on Friday from the supervising Judge.

Probably today Judge Fox will have to rule and deny her this 'new found' revelation that Lohan has had!

She is playing Judge Fox and is trying to call the shots along with Holley, Dina and Lou Taylor. This Judge is not an idiot. This is not a free get out of jail time card.

She will do jail time for her probation violation. Guaranteed. Lohan slapped Judge Fox in the face by relapsing in two weeks OUT OF REHAB, this month.

She is a chronic addict, that cannot help herself because of the life she has lead with no CONSEQUENCES and she continues to believe she knows what is best for her and NOT the COURTS!

PROBATION and JUDGES do not LIKE and DO NOT TOLERATE direct NON-COMPLIANCE of their orders while on PROBATION!

Today is going to be interesting as is tomorrow because Judge Fox is going to have to decide does she go to rehab again or does she stay on probation until Oct 22nd do her jail time then off to rehab and more probation.

Unfortunately, Lohan is in a NO WIN SITUATION - you can go to rehab and Judge Fox can send for you - if you leave and go on your own without his permission or knowledge she has violated AGAIN!

She is playing a game and the more she tries to play it out in the public the more Judge Fox is going to come down on her, and rightfully so. She shows her disregard for her actions and her behavior by relapsing 2 weeks out of her last stint in jail/rehab. She has learned nothing and does not get it and this move is not going to endear her to Judge Fox.

I've never been in rehab because I don't need that, but it seems to me to be a scam. Hardly anybody seems cured, at least not until they have been to rehab multiple times. I think any cure is a result not of rehab but of finally seeing the light through their disastrous lives.

Perhaps rehabs should be called something else or shut down. Call them a "rest cure," like they used to name things a long time ago. Basically a psychiatric hospital or resort for people to retreat from the world for a time.

Who knew, when you looked at those cute Lindsay films when she was younger, that she would turn out like this? I think this has always been her personality but it just didn't show up in movies.

I read up on Linda Lovelace (wikipedia) and found something Lindsay and Linda have in common. Both have a habit of always blaming their problems and mistakes on other people.

I'm never going to a movie about a porn star, nor do I think most of her "fans" would. I read yesterday that the guys making the Inferno movie don't even have the rights to it yet, or something like that, and the writer of the article doubts that the movie would ever be made because of many problems, not just Lindsay.

TMZ - irrespective is NOT a word! Try "regardless".

Well yeah, of course she'll take rehab over jail. Anytime the threat of jail is there she'll run to rehab but that's not the same as doing it of her own free will. She's just using rehab as a way to hopefully avoid jail. She'll coast through some luxury rehab program, get out and then test positive for alcohol or drugs within weeks, be threatened with yet another stint in jail and run to yet another rehab facility. This cycle will go on and on ad infinitum. I have only two hopes in this - first, that she doesn't hurt anyone else while she's coked out and second, that the press eventually tires of the same old story and she fades into oblivion.

Didn't we all know it was short sighted by the judge to cut her jail time and rehab short the last - do not think that the judge will rewalk those steps again!! UCLA rehab really I think should eat some crow over this!!

She doesn't have any court obligations other than wearing the SCRAM bracelet and getting random drug tested.
The stupid Judge revoked her probation so she no longer has to attend any meetings or sessions.

#11 said "I would rather read about her success than her obituary!!!"


Many prefer the obituary, hope she does it soon.

Like hotels with chocolates & flowers in your room when you check in, any 'rehab' that this useless person goes to, should have a razor blade, rope, and a bottle of pills left in her room with a 'Welcome, please use any of these items' note.

@10 it's admitting you are addicted - to yourself - and subsequently making the decision to quit that's hardest ,indeed.

She says she knows now she has a problem. Good for her.
Now why don't we give her the benefit of the doubt and see what happens.
She needs our support not the bashing most of you here give her. Lighten up people.
