Lindsay Lohan Intervention

Michael Lohan Asked

Dr. Drew for Help

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.

Maybe the personw that Michael took with them is someone that's already been through an intervention and knows what it's like and was there to lend support to Lindsay???

Milo may be a total loser but that doesnt make Lindsay any less of a drunken, thieving skank.

They said that Michael didn't use the interventionist that was recommended to him and he went with another, so how do you know he's not a Black man?

Loony haters, Lindsay did Lindsay really have a wardrobe on SM5. After all it was a bedroom scene with Charlie Sheen. Was she ever alone on the set? As I recall she had an assistant and hairdresser with her from LA and Gavin with her on set.
BTW is the ROL story written by Amber Goodhand who is best buds with Kate Major, just wondering?

Oops! I guess TMZ and Milo forgot this interview!
=====================================
Dr Drew Pinsky would agree, and even stated that his 'work' as an Interventionist is "dangerous for everybody".
Both Dr Drew Pinsky and (rehab counselor) Bob Forrest expressed concern that Lohan's new occupation has become the latest host on which his codependency will feed.
"His co-dependency now is infiltrating his work where he's spending his time saving addicts," Pinsky said. "He, himself, has such bad boundaries that it is dangerous for everybody."
Bob Forrest told Lohan that on first sight he could tell that he " lacked basic recovery tools".
"There's a guy that doesn't know that he's powerless, there's a guy that thinks if he gets his daughter treatment she'll survive and she'll get well," he said. "You don't have a say..."
Forrest recommended a private therapist or Al-anon meetings (recovery for families of addicts) for Lohan. "Just like you caught Kate's illness, you'll catch these people's illness," Forrest said.
