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.

Why does this loser get so many chances when the rest of ue would have been locked up long ago? She doesn't seem to contribute anything to society, she doesn't seem to have a lot of values, she doesn't seem to have friends standing uo for her, she never seems to accept responsibility for any of her actions,she can't even perform as a professional actress without causing trouble and negative comments, and she shows no respect for herslef or others. She needs to spend some itme locked up, that may be her only hope.

Was it not another Judge who introduced Morningside a couple of years ago?


She specificly mentioned this place as a rehab for Lindsay. Was there money involved?


I remember when I googled it back then that I couldn't understand who they could run a 30 days rehab in a house which should have been torn down years ago.


There is a lot of scam going on in the rehab business. Just take a lot at a blog called "Today a child died". There are rehabs on US soil which kills children every single year. Many of them continue their operations despite leaving bodies and broken families behind.

I don't know if there are good rehabs but if you are in the wrong one, they will just torture your mind. I feel like she doens't get along well with the Betty Ford program. Now they have her in a section where she can't wander off anywhere. She is going to be stuck with whatever program they are putting on her.


I am wondering if there will be some sort of fist fight and then they will just put her out and send her to jail. I don't know if they know how to handle someone with her temperment.


If she keeps saying that she has no problem, then they will just act like they can't help her. They put pressure on you to say you are whatever they say you are. It is like a mind control operation. That is why people often relapse afterwards when they brainwashing cycles out and it is time for them to make more money off of you.
