Lindsay Lohan

Cut Off from Adderall

I'm Quitting Betty Ford!!!

5/11/2013 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0510_lindsayIt's Lindsay Lohan's worst fear ... doctors at The Betty Ford Center have cut off her precious supply of Adderall -- and now, she's hell-bent on making her escape.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay's claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).​

We're told Betty Ford's doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug.  And, we're told, the doctors are well aware many people -- especially Hollywood types -- misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.

Here's the immediate problem ... Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.

And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.

First: No matter where she goes, they all need to be on board about the adderall. EVERY DOCTOR in the USA needs to be made aware and she needs to be put on the drug seeker list in CA (yes they have one). This way no Doctor will prescribe her the drug.

SECOND: She needs to be put on a 5150, with a psychiatrist coming in and saying she is GD and DTS so they can make it so she cannot leave.

THIRD: She is addicted. No matter what her brain is telling her she NEEDS the drug and it will be some time before her brain tells her otherwise (been there, vicodin) She thinks she needs it, her mind says she needs it and she won't survive without it. While they are detoxing her they need to have it set up where they make it so she understands she does not NEED the drug.

FOURTH: It is time to start treating her like a normal everyday person and quit giving in to her. I know the judge is just wanting her to do her 90 days but seriously they need to stop. WE should all just write letters to the judge as normal people telling him that enough is enough in this case. She either does her 90 at Betty Ford, and is no longer allowed to use adderall or she can go to jail and still not be allowed adderall. I honestly am tired of her getting away with crap. If this were anyone else they'd be in jail.

The U.S justice system is setup to incarcerate minorities for modern day slavery in privately owned prisons. This disgusting chick will probably never see jail time, and if she does the jail will have a spa.

So, a Rehab Clinic refuses to allow a patient to continue taking their addictive drug... am I missing something here? God, this gets old !!

Hmmm....Isn't she on lockdown? How is TMZ finding out what she is doing, saying, or threatening? Who is she talking to? Seems a bit suspect.....I think she is going to fail, but this story seems odd. It's illegal for the doctor's to tell anyone about her medical issues and banning her from Adderal would fall in that category.

Lindsay is right! She DOES need to be moved to another facility - a Psychiatric Hospital! If the BF docs figured out she doesn't need Adderall, maybe they noticed she's delusional and mentally unwell?


I know she abuses drugs and alcohol, but I think she does it to mask the emotional turmoil she is always in due to her Personality Disorders. I'm sure she would say no to psych treatment, so I guess her only other option is stay at BF go where she should have been sent in the first place - JAIL!

I thought she was supposed to have no internet, no cell phone, and monitored phone calls?

Well, if she can't get off the Adderall at Betty Ford...maybe she can do so during 90 days in jail?

PS...aren't cigarettes addictive? B.F. should also ban smoking.....

A rehab facility that does not allow its patients to take (unnecessary) drugs ... Oh the inhumanity.

"inconceivable" Really? It would shock me more if they don't let her switch facilities....Havent you heard she's Lindsey Lohan, and she can pretty much do what she wants..........She screws the American justice system quite often. And they love it......sws

Yeah right. Here we go again. Hmmm, will the judge let her change facilities... TMZ says no way.. so we know the judge will definitely be open to that.. or she will leave either NOT go to jail or somehow re-plea her plea that somehow counts her rehab time as double and if she goes to jail it's only for 3 days. That about right? Meanwhile a black 17yr old who steals $100 serves three years. Let Lindsay out... give her all the drugs she wants... send her to live with Brooke.. someone leave a crap load of free heroin, coke and booze on the doorstep and let nature take it's course.
