Lindsay Lohan

To Avoid 'Certain Failure'

The rehab facility that Lindsay Lohan has called home for weeks sent a letter to the judge in her probation case ... saying LiLo will lapse back into drug and alcohol abuse if she doesn't get more court-ordered therapy ... and guess what, the judge agreed.

TMZ obtained a copy of the letter from Cliffside Malibu, in which CEO and founder Richard Taite tells the judge, Lindsay needs 3, 50-minute sessions a week for the next 15 months (18 months from last May).  Then Taite gives an ominous warning: "If these sessions are not required by the court and attendance verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a set up for almost certain failure."

The judge agreed in open court this morning, and ordered that Lindsay stay in therapy and prove a year from November that she's complied.

Meanwhile in court, Lindsay's lawyer Shawn Holley showed up with proof Lindsay successfully completed her 90 days of rehab.

Outside court, Shawn talked about "Lindsay 2.0." ... and made a bold prediction about her client's future.

18 months is forever in junkie terms. She will be ordered to do something or other by the courts for the rest of her life. Hell, we're looking at 7 years in the system now for a DUI


Like I said, 18 months is a long time and you and I know that she will be mess up or get caught messing up within the next month.


Plenty of time.

Since it's going to be on Skype, they should let Lisa Kudrow be the therapist.

In other words, it took 90 days to detox her but she's probably made almost zero progress toward dealing with the underlying mental and emotional issues. Requiring three days of therapy per week for 16 months is quite intensive and is a clear indication of the extent of this girl's problems, for which drug and alcohol abuse are merely the tips of the iceberg. Obviously the rehab staff has zero confidence in Lohan's "recovery" to date and see little chance that she will remain clean and sober. Time for an office pool to bet on how quickly she'll be back in court on new charges.

Oh and also - The producers said this rumor of Lohan being cast in the next Affleck film is just that - RUMORS. She is not attached to the project in any way shape or form. In fact, they tried to distance themselves from her as much as possible.

Can she phone in those three 50-minute sessions per week for the next 18 months, or is she actually going to have to stay in California??? Poor Cali . . .

I love how Crapside wants their piece of the pie. She could do counseling through any accredited center, but theirs just happens to be $70,000.00 per month. 12 hours of counseling per month will be around $15,000 + per month---sick--- BUT IT WAS THE FAKUP LOHAN THAT CREATED THIS MONSTER BY GOING THERE---SHE JUST GOT THE SHOCK OF HER LIFE TODAY BEING ORDERED TO DO THIS--
