Lindsay Lohan

Court Docs Reveal

Rehab Scam

EXCLUSIVE

0506_lindsay_lohan_article4
Lindsay Lohan's freshly fired lawyer tried to convince the judge and prosecutors to allow her to go to a facility that had no right to offer rehab services.

TMZ has obtained court docs that confirm the story we broke last week ... that Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach had NO license to provide substance abuse treatment ... despite attorney Mark Heller's representations to the contrary.

A State official sent a letter to Judge Jim Dabney making it crystal clear ... Morningside had its license revoked in Sept., 2012 for numerous violations, including failing to report the death of a patient, providing unlicensed medical services and improperly handling prescription meds.

In fact, the letter says Morningside has flaunted the revocation, and continues to provide rehab without a license, so a State agency is now taking the facility to court to get them to stop.

As for The Betty Ford Center -- where Lindsay is currently receiving treatment -- a rehab case manager submitted a letter saying Lindsay will get a treatment team consisting of a physician, nurse, psychologist, primary counselor, case manager, spiritual care counselor, family counselor, dietician, fitness trainer and chemical dependency technician.

All those people involved in helping her--all the time and money involved, and she doesn't want help. She won't last there for three months.

Family Counselor, really?? More like a referee. Judge Judy couldn't handle that group. Instead family counseling, why not just have Dina and Michael in a PPV Cage Match.

Keepin' it Real    

Lindsay will stop treating her body as though it belonged to someone else the day she, and she only, decides to do so. No one else can do this for her. And she doesn't need rehab to do this either.

Scam, sham, we got it the first time. No wonder celebrity addicts keep coming back to rehab, with all those people to kiss their entitled ass and fawn over them, they must feel like they're in a very expensive heaven. Oh the suffering they must go through to kick the habit, oh that's right, she has no habit to kick.

Cool. Smh at Morningside i didn't know all their licenses got revoked. They are supposed to be treating vulnerable people and aren't even qualified to do it. This should be the end of them.
