Lindsay Lohan

Court Docs Reveal

Rehab Scam

5/6/2013 4:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

So what is new with this story? TMZ, now that Lindsay is in rehab, there are no new stories to tell. So instead you just rehash old stories.

I also read, although I am not sure how factual this is, that Morningside offered to pay $30,000 for Lindsey to go to their facility. I hope law enforcement investigates that allegation and throws the book at them if it is true. And if her lawyer brokered the deal, he needs to be disbarred...again.

The list of team members here is not unusual. Group therapy is run by many "specialist" counselors, a dietitian is the kitchen manager, staff psychologist, staff physician, staff trainer, staff nurse. One counselor will be her primary counselor, and a case manager oversees all of this stuff. IT IS NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY FOR INPATIENT TREATMENT.

Sounds expensive! It will probably be a waste of money because you can't help someone who doesn't want help!

Still asking:

"Shawn got do***entation earmarking certain "paychecks" Lindsay will be getting."

Is it legal for Shawn to accept payments that stem from Blo performing illegal off-shore services?
