Lilo's father wants her out of rehab
Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan's father wants her to be shifted to another rehabilitation centre - because he's convinced she won't recover if she's given prescription medication.entertainment Updated: Oct 02, 2010 12:49 IST
The Mean Girls star checked into the Betty Ford treatment clinic in southern California on Tuesday, four days after posting $300,000 bail to escape jail after failing two mandatory drug tests.
But her father Michael Lohan is particularly concerned because late model/actress Anna Nicole Smith, who died in 2007 from a prescription drug overdose, also tried to overcome her problems at Betty Ford unsuccessfully, reports imdb.com.
"Look at the 'short' list of people who went to Betty Ford - most, if not all, have relapsed. I went there myself, and I will tell you, Betty Ford is a country club," said Michael.
"They administer prescription meds and even put their patients on prescription meds. Once more, they don't have family therapy at all. The root of her problems is her family. This will not work - mark my words!"
Michael insists he's relieved "to know Lindsay is in a safe place and away from her enablers" but adds, "If Betty Ford gives her any prescription drugs, they become another enabler. Back to square one!"
