Lindsay Lohan

Cut Off from Adderall

I'm Quitting Betty Ford!!!

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

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.

I'm sure she's going to be able to transfer to a place that allows Adderall. The LA justice system bends over backwards to give this dopehead bitch her way all the time.

How long did she think she could get away with this? When real doctors looking into her condition, they saw a spoiled brat who wanted her drugs. No more, no less.

This is an addicted culture. Everyone seems to be addicted to something. It is their touchstone with the rest of the society. If you are not addicted to food, you are addicted to weight loss drugs. If you are not addicted to shopping, you are addicted to cleaning. If you are not addicted to porn, you are addicted to religion. Some people are addicted to bullying. Others are addicted to being the victim. It is all different ways of hiding from life and truly growing up.

People who really stand out and have their own opinions are ostracized and condemned or they are put on pedestals from which they know they will be knocked down. There is no incentive to stand out and try to do what is right.

Look at Charles Ramsey. Now there is a big controversy if he even did anything. People are saying maybe he didn't find the girl, maybe he didn't kick in the door; they even say oh look what a bad man he is for having a criminal record. There are people who look at that and say that it is not worth doing anything but being another vegetable farmed for profit.

People are averse to any kind of pain or suffering. That is really a part of life. You need to toughen up and roll with it. You need to face problems head on and not cower and hide in your Adderall and booze.

Lindsay could have problems dealing with a crazy father. She could have problems with the whole Disney machine making her out to be some star that she is not in reality. She has been traumatized by bad relationships with men. These are all issues that she needs to address. The answer is not in a bottle of Adderall.

Where does TMZ get this info and why isn't whoever is leaking confidential information arrested or fired?

As a drug addict myself (painkillers), who has been on ADD medications since the age of 9, I slightly understand both perspectives. I myself, volunteered for rehab and have been sober for 2 years June 6th. First off, when checking into ANY rehab you need to understand you will be pulled off of ANY drug with abuse potential

The doctor who prescribed her meds to begin with needs his license taken away and any judge that has let this tramp slide by needs to be fired too. She is the poster child for mockery of the legal system. When will enough be enough?

At the same time, though, imagine being in the most torturous physical and emotional pain you have ever been in, then having docs tell you they are gonna make it worse by masking you feel as. though your brain has shut off. I'm not sticking up for her in anyway, though. Just thought I should play devils advocate.

For Gods sake! anyone believing this nonsense needs their head testing.
1. Lindsay has been to Betty Ford before and knows exactly what to expect.
2. The so called sources is none other than her attention seeking whore father.
3. He has been pushing the Lukens institute from day one, saying Lindsay wants to go there.
4. Next TMZ story is Lindsay wants to go to Lukens.

This story is nonsense, thought up by and sold by Michael Lohan.

Seriously, is this even a surprise to anyone? She's in a rehab facility, and it's beyond obvious that Adderall has not helped to balance out Lindsay properly. Plus, if she is already known to abuse drugs, the first things they will do is detox her and start with a clean slate. She's an idiot to fight the opportunity to really find what will work best for her med-wise, and she's lucky enough to have the time and the proper doctors who can help her. The fact that she refuses to even try proves she's an addict! She does not want to get well. The only thing she has going for her is that she has no choice but to follow the doctors' orders, and they have 90 days to force her to what's best. But, as we all know, she'll fight them tooth and nail every step of the way. And, no one will be a bit surprised if she bolts out the front which case she'll be tossed in jail and forced to detox without the help of supporting meds and supporting professionals. Her cell mates will be the only people there to listen to her constant whining. That in itself would be the ultimate punishment for any inmate.....having to be locked up with Lindsay Lohan, OMG!!!

She keeps having problems with violence or accusations of violence. She keeps having problems with stealing or what she calls using poor judgement. She keeps having problems with finishing things and dealing with reality. These are all side effects from psychiatric drugs.

They cause violence, poor judgement and apathy and they keep the victim from realizing that they are getting worse instead of better. When you alter a person's brain, you alter their reality. You change their ability to cope with life and deal with themselves rationally.

If she really is innocent of all the the crimes and bad behavior that she is accused of, she still doesn't have the good judgement on how to stay out of trouble. There are a lot of sick people around and they just provoke each other and make each other sicker. Someone has to step up and refuse to participate in the insanity any longer.

Amazing how Lindsay still thinks she can call the shots & keep taking her drug of choice. Interesting to see if the judge grew a pair & will throw Lindsay in jail if she steps one foot out of facility. Shawn Holley time to start earning the money & tell your client to shut up or else she's going to be in the ultimate rehab facility - JAIL.

Time to stop the madness and have the Public Guardian file for conservatorship & put her arse in a locked facility. That's the only way she'll stay in a locked rehab facility. Lindsay does have the other rehab option, going to jail.
Wish they had live stream of Linds in rehab.

Lindsay doesn't want to quit Betty Ford, this story is BS. She has already committed to this facility, she's been there before and knows precisely what they do, what to expect and she's going with it, good luck to her, it can't be easy but she's still standing.

Michael Lohan if you are reading this absolute tripe that you sold to TMZ for your own benefit, read my words, YOU are the cancer in your daughters life, No matter what scam you try to pull, Lindsay will NOT be going to Lukens, we all know how you've been plugging Lukens from day one, being paid to promote that facility, its NOT going to happen, anything YOU promote is corrupt. YOU are clinically insane. People should google that place, its dangerous and completely unqualified, but Michael Lohan doesn't care if his daughter is in danger, all he cares about is the fee he will receive. Michael Lohan is INSANE

When I went to treatment and they took my precious Klonopin I had the same reaction "my anxiety" I said "you *******s" I said. A year sober and no heavy medications later... I take nothing for anxiety and have only had two minor attacks in a year. We tell ourselves we need these things because we have addictive personalities and our disease tell us as long as they are prescribed they're ok. Celebrity or not I hope every addict gets sober. If you do not like someones actions or personality when they are using remember it's not them there. That is there disease. Personally I think once treatment becomes involved the spotlight needs to be shut off so people can get a chance to heal. This is a sick girl. Instead of dogging her maybe you should pray for her. JS....
