Lindsay Lohan

Judge Orders Therapy

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.

Well, she did surprise us by not escaping rehab or violating her probation. I’ve said it before - Lindsay is dealing with much more than addiction. I realize many addicts have issues, but Lindsay almost certainly has at least one full blown personality disorder (Narcissistic and or/Borderline IMO). Her past behavior and criminal antics are simply not ‘normal’, even for someone with drug and alcohol addictions. I think that Piers Morgan interview she did right before rehab was indicative of her delusional state of mind.


As far as I know, this is the first time she has actually been treated for her ‘core issues.’ I’m not surprised to hear she needs intensive out-patient therapy, and I do think it’s important for her to continue with her therapist at Cliffside, because they are qualified to deal with the substance abuse as well as the mental health issues.


That said, I do feel badly for Lindsay’s many victims, and if she screws up again, she MUST be held accountable. She was very lucky to be able to serve her jail time at a top notch luxury rehab facility. Most people cannot afford to have this type of care and support. We'll see...

First, UCLA said she's not an addict, she's a head case.


Then, she gets rehab instead of jail, even though it's not a drug charge, or a charge related to substance abuse.


Now, the rehab is claiming (reading between the lines) that she did so poorly in her 90 day stint that she needs do***ented out patient treatment. That she did't really participate in the process and has absolutely no insight into herself. That she remains an entitled bitch


It's her personality disorder ****tail. She'll never stop using. NEVAH!! She probably already has used.


What's next? That Chelsea decided not to go on vacation and that Oprah called in sick?

Therapy by Skype? hahahahahha....More special treatment for the crazy drug addict. Wrong thing to do. All drug addcts think they're "special" and don't have to follow the rules. This decision that she doesn't have to be in the office for her therapy is ridiculous! hahhahaha.....It's really true that nobody truly cares about this Bag O'Mess.

Old psych joke:


Q: How do you treat a Borderline?


A: You refer them.


Q: How does the judge treat a Borderline?


A: Get them out of the courtroom. Agree to everything, especially the out-of-state stuff.


When she leaves California, I think there might be a tidal wave in the Phillipines.
