Lindsay Lohan

Cut Off from Adderall

I'm Quitting Betty Ford!!!

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.

Who else is leaking it? Lindsay of course she isn't just addicted to drugs but to attention at well. It came out before she didn't have ADHD and she didn't need her fav drug. I don't see how the Judge can justify a move because a drug addict is chucking a tanty because she can't get her favourite drug. Don't think the prosecutors could go along with it either. If she walks she needs to be arrested and thrown in jail...she won't get it there either.

hmm you go into rehab for drug/alcohol problems, then you complain you can't get drugs in rehab? I am so confused.

Lohan is fully aware the concept of rehab. She claims she doesn't need it and it's just a waste of time. Again if there is no problem so than what's the problem?


According to Lohan she was able to get her Adderall in jail. So then go to jail.


Even if Lohan should pull off the 90 days, she will go right back to partying as soon as she's out the door just like everyother time.


Problem is she will probably get so wasted get behind the wheel and hurt or kill someone. Lohan doesn't care about anyone but herself. Nothing new there.

I don't think she should have a choice in it. The court system in this case is failing and although there are measure taken to have her carry out her sentence it should be behind a locked down treatment center that she must stay in and have no choice of it location or amount of time spent there, this is where the court system fails..

My money is on high speed chase, and then suicide by cop.

I thought the whole idea of going to a rehab clinic was to clean up from drugs and alcohol. Why can't the law make someone like her stay in a place, especially the Betty Ford Clinic, and get the help she really needs before she hurts or kills someone, or even possibly herself. Rehab isn't intended to be a fun resort. It's a place one goes to and has to put in some real work to get well.

I feel she is in the right place to help her, and that the doctors at the Betty Ford Clinic are doing the right thing. I agree in their view about Adderall, and the Judge needs to have Lindsay stay there, and she should not be given favoritism and allowed to go to a facility of her choice. she is too spoilt and needs to grow up.

My fondest dreams have come true. This is worse than jail for Lohan. Oh lord, what a smile I have on my face right now! No adderall for Lohan is the last straw that will break that junkie's back. YAY! Ding, dong the bitch is sober - FINALLY! Good for the dr.s at Betty Ford, they didn't give in to her Diva narcissist demands! Enjoy the rest of your stay Lohan - it's going to be a long 80 days. Even though the minute she's out of jail, she'll be shooting, snorting and popping that prescription - hopefully when she is tested (and that was part of the order of her probation) they'll catch her again on that drug and she'll be sent to jail without her precious.

When UCLA evaluated her they determined she did not have ADHD. It will be a real joke if they let her go to rehab on speed.
