Michael Lohan

Magna Cum Sober Degree

From Lindsay's Rehab Joint

Lindsay Lohan
has history with the rehab center which she'll call home for 90 days -- her dad dried out there in the late '80s, and we're told he and the rehab owner are thick as thieves.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay will be moving into the Seafield Center at Westhampton Beach in New York for her court-ordered rehab.  Turns out a coked-up and boozy Michael Lohan checked into the joint in 1989, and became tight with Executive Director Mark Epley.

Michael tells TMZ ... Mark knows the "family dynamic" of the Lohan family.  Michael says the goal is to force Dina Lohan to agree to family therapy -- with Michael and Lindsay -- to deal with their laundry list of woes.

Here's the problem -- Michael got sober at Seafield, but he fell off the wagon pretty quickly thereafter.

Michael says he wanted Lindsay to go to Lukens Institute in Florida because the facility is small and stylized to the patients, but he still likes Seafield a lot.

Michael wants Lindsay to go to Lukens Institute in Florida because it is small and "stylized to the patients". What does stylized to the patients mean? I don't think it matters where one goes to rehab. Rehab is a place to learn new life skills. Those life skills usually do include a 12 step program. Those people who stay clean and sober usually do so thru a 12 step program. The people that benefit from rehab are those who acknowledge they have a problem and are willing to make changes. I hope Lindsay makes those changes. Otherwise she is going to have a short and miserable life.

This is kind of a non story. Just Milo attempting to inject himself into his daughter's situation.

How revolting to consider Michael Lohan possibly getting some sort of benefit from the owner/operator of a rehab business for getting Lindsay into one.
How many ways are there for him and Dina to profit off of their sick child, and their own sicknesses? The idea of rehab businesses vying for a famous client is disturbing, not that this article implies that that's what's happening here.
But think of the publicity for where ever she goes. Since this will be her sixth (?) time, she has spread her business around but doesn't add to the status of any of them due to her inability to stay sober.
The goal of rehab places is to protect clients' anonymity, but with Lindsay, that's hopeless.
If she gets well, it will be a miracle. I hope Dina gets sober too, but that would be a miracle as well.

I'm assuming she is paying for this place, and not the tax payers?

you folks have it wrong - i was a client and the seafield center changed my life - i am disturbed by the negative feedback - seafield has helped thousands and i was there 20 years ago in patient - I am not ashamed to come out and defend the wonderful and life changing events that the center gave me - it was and has been a blessing - i was a falling down drunk and they changed my life
