Lindsay Lohan

Rehab Scam

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.

This girl's case makes a mockery of the US legal system. They imprison people for far less and yet allow her time and time again to call the shots even blowing-off court dates when she feels like and brags about it. System is a joke!!

Let's hope the chemical dependency technician is smart enough to get her off Adderall.

The best part of this whole thing is that the Munchkin (Heller) will never get paid for any of his work by LL.

Can we please forget about this no-talent train wreck now?

Morningside is not the only check out rehabs websites all along the coast from Orange County to Malibu this is happening. I know I work in the field myself and get disgusted when some money hungry s*** bag offers help but instead wants to make another hundred grand at some one elses experience. I work in the field in West Los Angeles. I have watched 3 young men this last year get buried because of this in my area. The state needs to come down hard on these places and I still wonder why they don't. It is obvious her attorney get paid a referral fee and got caught the a-hole should be dis-barred for filing phony do***ents to the court.
