Lindsay Lohan's a free woman -- for the most part.

Today, a day after she was released from rehab at UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Beverly Hills Judge Elden Fox declared that the 24-year-old starlet must submit to random drug and alcohol testing twice a week, participate in psychotherapy sessions at least four times a week, attend behavior therapy sessions twice a week, and live at her Hollywood Hills home until further notice, TMZ.com reported.

If she messes up, according to Fox, she could go back to jail for up to 30 days.

Following Fox's hearing, which Lohan did not attend, her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, told reporters the actress is eager to get her life on track.

"She has changed," Holley said. "She's healthy. She's clear-headed. She is positive at looking forward."

Lohan was released from rehab Tuesday after serving just over three weeks of her court-ordered 90 days of in-patient treatment. According to Radaronline.com, who first reported Lohan's release, she was escorted out of the UCLA facility's back door into a waiting limousine on Tuesday afternoon. She checked into the hospital on Aug. 2.

An unnamed source told People magazine that Lohan was "out and doing really well."

While in rehab, doctors reportedly discovered that the actress doesn't suffer from ADHD or bipolar disorder, and that improperly prescribed Adderall might have been to blame for her erratic behavior.

Prior to her stint at UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Lohan spent 13 days in jail at Los Angeles' Lynwood Correctional Facility. She was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days of in-patient rehab in July for violating her 2007 probation. According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, good behavior on her part and overcrowding in L.A.'s prison system led to her early release from Lynwood.

For Lohan, rehab facilities have almost served as a second home. She first admitted herself to the Wonderland Center in January 2007 and spent 30 days there. After racking up a DUI arrest in May of that year, she checked into the celebrity-friendly Promises Treatment Center for 45 days.

A second DUI arrest in 2007 sent Lohan to Utah's Cirque Lodge Treatment Center, where she famously staged a photo shoot with OK! magazine, which distributed pictures of her practicing yoga on the lawn and riding horseback, presumably sober.

Lindsay Lohan's Life After Rehab, Jail

While Lohan's been out of the Hollywood hustle for weeks, now that she's free from rehab and jail, she's got a host of projects to keep her busy.

Before beginning her jail stint, Lohan reportedly managed to lock down post-sentence tell all interviews that will earn her seven figures. Expect a major TV sitdown once her false eyelashes and hair extensions are back in place.

Lohan's rehab run ended just in time for her to promote her latest film, Robert Rodriguez's "Machete," which hits theaters September 3. A promotional poster for the film plays up her bad girl streak, showing her in a nun's habit, licking a gun. Lohan's lawyer said the actress will not attend a screening of the movie scheduled for tonight.

Next up for the "Mean Girls" and "Georgia Rules" star: filming the biopic "Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story," in which she plays porn star Linda Lovelace. Besides acting, she's got her 6126 clothing line to keep her busy, as well as her budding music career -- shortly before heading to jail, a previously unheard song of hers leaked, aptly titled "Too Young to Die."
