Aug. 2, 2010 — -- After 13 days in jail, Lindsay Lohan is taking her next steps; 12, to be precise.
The actress was released from Los Angeles' Lynwood Correctional Facility today at 1:35 a.m. PT after serving 13 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her 2007 probation. Lohan was taken straight into a rehabilitation program, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.
She will be treated for bipolar disorder and an addiction to amphetamines during her court ordered 90 days in rehab, according to TMZ.com.
Lohan's rehab center of choice is a facility operated by the University of California at Los Angeles Hospital System in West Los Angeles, TMZ and Radaronline.com reported.
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.
This time around, Lohan was hoping to catch up with her family before locking down in rehab, according to her lawyer.
"I'm hoping she will have time to spend with her family before she goes to rehab," Shawn Chapman Holley told reporters Sunday. "She is trying to comply with the court's orders, but she should be able to have 24 hours at home."
Time free was not to be for the 24-year-old starlet. But Holley said that despite her recent hardships, Lohan, whose acting career has floundered since the 2007 dud "I Know Who Killed Me," is doing well.
"She looks gorgeous," Holley told reporters Wednesday after visiting the jailed actress. "She's writing a lot. She's creating art.
"She's a beautiful, talented, creative woman," Holley added, "and she's going to come out and surprise you all."
Lindsay Lohan's 12 Steps
Just in case Lohan needs help making it through this latest round of rehab, ABCNews.com broke down how some of the 12 steps in the popular addiction treatment program might apply to her life:
Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction -- that our lives had become unmanageable. At 24, this is Lohan's fourth time in rehab. If that's not a sign she's become unmanageable, what is?
Step 2: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Red Bull and Adderall: powerful, yes. Staples of a healthy diet: no.
Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Maybe that's what she did in jail?
Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Note to Lohan: Twitter does not count as another human being.
Step 8: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. That means Lohan should personally pay back everyone who saw "I Know Who Killed Me" in theaters.
Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Lohan can weave the theme into her upcoming 6126 clothing line: 12 leggings inspired by each of the 12 steps.
