Lindsay Lohan

Her Adderall Is

On Chopping Block

5/7/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0506_lindsay_lohan_adderal_betty_ford_articleLindsay Lohan is NOT drug free at The Betty Ford Center ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the rehab queen tell TMZ ... Betty Ford is allowing her to take the powerful drug, Adderall. The reason -- she has an Rx and says she's been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Lindsay has made it clear over the last month -- she would only go to rehab if she's allowed to take the med.  BUT ... sources tell us doctors at Betty Ford are currently evaluating Lindsay's diagnosis and the efficacy of the drug.  If doctors disbelieve her diagnosis or the usefulness of Adderall, they will cut her off.

Adderall is commonly misused by lots of people -- especially actresses -- who take the drug to suppress their appetite.

The good news for Lindsay -- at least she can smoke freely at B.F..

I'm in recovery, so I know from experience. Prescription drug abuse is at an all time high. If Betty Ford allows this, then that shows why there is such a low cure rate. For anyone to fight that hard to keep it shows that she is addicted to it. I feel sorry for the other people that are paying good money to get well, being next to a fast talking person that is not clean. You cannot be clean and sober on adderall...period

The Betty Ford Clinic isn't a rehab clinic per se, it's a posh detox center for people of means trying to appease the courts, family, and/or their employers.

I have ADHD, if she was prescribed the correct dose, and truly has ADHD (probably neither are correct), she will not get high! Only stay focused! Her persistence in wanting that specific drug makes me know/believe she is just abusing it! The alternative drugs work great! She has made the courts look like a joke, only hope they do not let her leave!

While Adderall can certainly be abused, it also provides great benefit to millions of people with ADHD. If Ms. Lohan does have a true diagnosis, her Adderall will allow her the great deal of focus needed to go through her rehab process. Withholding someone's Adderall if they have ADHD is a sure way to make sure they fail the rehab process.
