Lindsay Lohan Leaves Jail, Enters Rehab
Lindsay Lohan leaves jail, starts mandatory 90-day rehab stint.
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."
