Lindsay Lohan --

No Time Limit for Rehab

10/6/2010 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan will definitely be in rehab at least until her court appearance later this month -- but how long she stays after that will probably be determined by the judge.

Lindsay Lohan rehab.
Sources tell us ... the plan is for Lindsay to stay in rehab at least until her October 22 court appearance before Judge Elden Fox.  As for how much longer she stays ... we're told by the time of the hearing, Judge Fox will have docs from the doctors at Betty Ford, evaluating Lindsay's problems and progress.

If the judge determines Lindsay would be better served with rehab than jail, it's all but certain her stay will be extended.

As for the October 22 court appearance, Lindsay does not have to show, because in misdemeanor cases lawyers can appear on behalf of the client.  But ... Judge Fox clearly thought Lindsay would be present since he assumed she'd be in custody until the hearing ... so it's a good bet she'll be there.

Lindsay is playing with the system and this judge. She's using the Betty Ford Center and it's physicians and counselors so that she can remain out of jail. This is so clear. The minute the crisis is over, she's going to go back to her normal existence out all night doing drugs.

When given the chance of sobriety, she refuses it every single time UNLESS jail is the other consequence. When jail is threatened, she gets into rehab FAST to secure the reports the attending doctors can generate to the judge. This is a major game and Lindsay is good at it. Addicts lie well and combine that with the fact that she's an actress and you have a damn good game.

I think she's actually taking rehab seriously, if she wasn't then she would've checked into one of those luxury rehab facilities like Mourningside. Besides, rehab is the one place where she dosen't have to deal with her worthless excuse for a father, Michael"Leech"Lohan. Every day Lindsay dosen't have to deal with him brings her one step closer to reocvering.

#20John...I agree. She did a decent job in Mean Girls that's all anyone can refer back to. That was what 6-7 years ago.

No one will hire her. No one will insure her. Look at the Linda Lovelace movie she was suppose to start and burned those producers. Lohan does not have the talent or draw or worth any risk whatsoever.

The only thing still saving her ass is the Paps. This is the only way she can stay in the news.

I didn't think she HAD a problem, other than people expecting her to act like an adult?

The Feds are tracking her and her family now regardless. Ali's fake death threat from a government official, gave the government access to throw the Feds in to save the day, or as Dina stated thank God for the FBI is on the case(and thats how its done!). When Ali visits Lindsay the FBI will be monitoring there every conversation and move. Welcome to police state USA, Big Brother is watching and listening.

Another stunt to avoid jail time. Here's the deal Lindsay, finish your rehab and then you're going to jail.

I hope Lindsay stays 100% clean of all street drugs, booze, prescription drugs, cigarettes, and any other kind of pills for a couple of years (or more) just to PISS OFF all the people that have been saying they wish she would just overdose and die and lose her career, etc.

PISS EM OFF LINDSAY! ... BY STAYING CLEAN AND SOBER AND GETTING BACK TO BEING AN "A-LIST" STAR AGAIN. SUCCESS IS ALWAYS THE BEST REVENGE YOU KNOW.

I think it is more of a rebellious kind of thing to do these days to STAY CLEAN AND SOBER than it is to be a drugged out, falling down, hopeless substance abuser these days. Anyone can get booze and drugs and flush their lives down the toilet. That's easy to do.

BE A TOTAL WILD WOMAN CRAZY ARSE IN HOLLYWOOD LINDSAY !! BLOW EVERYONE'S MINDS BY STAYING SOBER AND GETTING YOUR CAREER BACK IN HIGH GEAR!
