Michael Lohan
recruited rehab mastermind Dr. Drew for his massive Lindsay intervention last week, TMZ has learned -- but Dr. Drew declined, believing he would accidentally sabotage the entire operation.

Michael tells TMZ, he had been planning the Lindsay intervention for months ... and a couple weeks ago, he approached Dr. Drew to spearhead the mission.

But Michael tells us, Dr. Drew declined because he thought Lindsay would freak if she saw that he was involved -- defeating the entire purpose of the intervention.

According to Michael, Dr. Drew believed Lindsay needed someone with a lower profile ... someone less intimidating ... so Drew referred Michael to another intervention specialist.

Michael says he ultimately settled on someone else entirely -- someone with a connection to Lindsay's lawyer Dave Feldman -- but as we first reported, the intervention was a miserable failure ... and the cops were called.

The 50 most Infamous Actresses of All Time:

11. Lindsay Lohan

Most Infamous Moment: After a night out in Hollywood in 2007, Lohan drove drunk into a tree, fled the scene, and the cops found cocaine in her car.

When we first met Lindsay Lohan, she was the adorable freckle-faced teen starring in such films as The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. However, over the course of the last decade, Lindsay’s gradually started spending more time in Los Angeles courtrooms than on Hollywood backlots, two of the reasons being an apparent jewelry theft and her multiple car accidents. Whether she’s on TMZ wearing a court-ordered ankle bracelet or in the pages of Playboy wearing absolutely nothing, controversy seems to follow Ms. Lohan wherever she goes.

Hmmmm....Gossip Cop sources were an unamed 'rep' of the Weinstein company.

So, there still is no proof that the story is false. Not that I believe it, but that doesn't disprove anything!

"Rehab mastermind"? Half of the poor suckers Dr. Quack Greedsky exploited for his TV nonsense have died of overdoses in relapses after his "treatments".
