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.

She needs to hurry up & get better... as soon as she get's out, she has several film deals lined up. She'll be staring in the remake of ***********, Lindsy Does Dubai and will co-star with Farrah Abraham in Up Her Back Door...

Lindsay Lohan Must ‘Remain On Premises’: Letter From Betty Ford Center Reveals Strict Rehab Plan For Troubled Actress

Posted on May 6, 2013 @ 18:15PM | By radarstaff

Lindsay Lohan will not see outside the four walls of the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California during her court-ordered 90-day stint in rehab because, as has learned, the facility has acknowledged to a Los Angeles court that the troubled actress is on strict lockdown.

“It is understood by the Betty Ford Center that your client is to remain on premises for the duration of her 90-day stay in treatment,” Leslie Place, a case manager at the Betty Ford Center, wrote in a letter to Lohan’s lawyer on Monday and tendered to the L.A. Superior Court.

Earlier Monday, Judge James Dabney signed off on Lindsay’s stay at Betty Ford and ordered that the Mean Girls star must stay in the hospital wing of the center and not be allowed to walk out or leave on a pass.

26-year-old Lohan checked in late Thursday to Betty Ford.

Her case manager also detailed the treatment plan as part of her plea bargain regarding a reckless driving and lying to police charge about a previous car crash.

“During the treatment stay each patient is assignment a treatment team, which includes a physician, nurse, psychologist, primary counselor, case manager, spiritual care counselor, family counselor, dietician, fitness trainer and chemical dependency technician,” Place added.

“This team is responsible for assessing and working with each patient to an individualized plan of care and post-treatment recommendations designers to support ongoing recovery.

“These assessment take place within the first 72 hours of admission, depending on the medical and/or psychiatric state of the patient. An initial treatment plan is established upon admission and is developed a patient needs are identified and treatment progresses.”

“Each day consists of a full schedule of treatment activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, individual therapy, speciality groups, fitness, educational lectures and group therapy, which is the core of treatment at the Betty Ford Center.

On the last thread, LA Native mentioned something about LL being in the hospital unit without all the perks and day passes of being in the dorm situation. Is she going to be in the hospital unit for the whole 90 days? Also, do you think they'll be monitoring her visitors? I can see Gavin or Mummy trying to sneak her some goodies while visiting.

Also, what are the chances of MiLo & Dina being at "family therapy" at the same time?

Where is Heller? Why haven't we heard from his dumb ass?

We (LL haters) knew this on Thursday.
Now if the Judge would review his sentening on 3/18 and enforce those orders he could move on to sanctions for Mark Heller. That should all take about 6-9 months.

At this point, she cannot be helped. Just leave her alone and watch her die from the very things that bring her "pleasure".
