Lindsay Lohan returned to rehab

Lindsay, 24, who recently spent 23 days in a detoxification program at UCLA Medical Center, intends to “step up her treatment” and “do more” than during her previous attempts of rehabilitation, said a source.

The name of the detoxification clinic was not released, but according to the same source, the clinic is located in southern California. The actress checked herself into this clinic on Monday evening.

Lindsay Lohan was released from prison Lyndwood, California, on September 24, after winning the appeal, asking to be released on bail. Lohan, who was sentenced Friday to four weeks in jail for violating the terms of parole, was released Saturday after having paid the bail.

Initially, a U.S. judge ordered Lohan to stay behind bars until October 22, but a judge overturned the decision and set a $300,000 bail.

Lindsay Lohan, which is under probation following her recent problems with the law, has been called to court last week after being tested positive for a drug test.

After spending 13 days in prison in Los Angeles in late July and early August, the actress was admitted to a rehab clinic, where she had to stay for 90 days.

Justice finally allowed her to return to her residence at the end of August, for a very strict medical and psychological test, which required using two weekly drug tests.

In late August, the judge warned her that if any test would prove positive, she will entail a punishment of 30 days in jail.

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced for violating probation terms, after being arrested twice in 2007 for drunk driving in the car and for possession of cocaine, within two months. She is now wearing an alcohol-detecting ankle bracelet.

Lindsay Lohan bails out and says she needs rehab not jail

After her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has filed all the legal papers, appealing Judge Elden Fox’s ruling that Lindsay Lohan should be held without bail, she went out of Lynwood Correctional Facility paying a $300,000 bail.

“She’s been very cooperative – always has been – the first time, and then the last time,” says L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore. “Let’s hope this is the last time.”

According to the most recent ruling, Lohan must now be fitted – again – with an alcohol-monitoring bracelet within 24 hours of her release.

She’s also ordered to stay out of places where “alcohol is the chief item of sale.”

However, Lindsay Lohan confessed to her friends this week that she needed to go back to rehab – not jail – if she was going to defeat her drug addiction.

Sources told TMZ Lindsay was surprisingly self-aware that she made a big mistake by falling off the wagon and testing positive for cocaine – and that she couldn’t fight her disease alone.

Lindsay was also aware that her relapse had “ruined a lot” in connection to the revival of her career.

George Michael to go into 14 days of rehab

Thus week, he appeared in front of a judge and recognized his guilty due to being charged of drug abuse while driving and causing an accident by ramming into a store.

George Michael announced he is set to go into 14 days of rehab for a detox program that includes treatment and counseling. “I want to thank you all sincerely, and also to reassure those of you who worry so much for me. I fully appreciate the seriousness of my current situation, for which I truly apologies…

I feel you should know that on the day after the incident I checked in to a clinic for a 14 day detox program here in London, which has been followed by ongoing outpatient drug counseling several times a week. Personal problems which I had tried to deal with myself had clearly got the better of me, and I am sorry that my pride has prevented me from seeking help before now.

I would also like to express my thanks to those whose discretion allowed me to begin this process in private, which has helped me greatly.”

Then, the next day, Lindsay surrendered herself to authorities.

Lindsay Lohan was released from UCLA rehab

After three weeks of jail, Lindsay Lohan checked out of UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Hospital on Tuesday.

Due to overcrowding and good behavior, Lohan’s jail term also had been cut short to 13 days instead of the three months ordered by the judge.

A source close to Lohan says the actress currently “has strict outpatient rules” now that she’s out of the treatment facility.

Lohan, 24, has been receiving treatment at the campus hospital since August 2 but even if she was released early, she may still receive care. “The outpatient program is just like the inpatient program, except you get to go home at night,” says a UCLA patient.

Lindsay Lohan may leave rehab this week

It is expected that a new hearing set for Wednesday morning at a Beverly Hills courthouse will reevaluate Lindsay sentence.

“There’s a possibility she could get out from inpatient treatment earlier than 90 days,” District Attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison told People.

“But where she might go depends on whatever the doctors recommend.”

Eric Roberts, the father of actress Emma Roberts, joined new season’s reality show “Celebrity Rehab.” In this issue, a psychotherapist of the stars, Dr. Drew Pinsky, will try to help the actor overcome his problems related to abuse of toxic substances.

Although it’s not clear what are Roberts problems are Roberts, his agent, Chuck Jones, said “It’s not for anything serious. He’s not hooked on prescription meds or hard drugs or anything like that.”

A spokesman for Roberts’ new film Rock Slyde says, “It’s ironic that Eric is going through the same Celebrity Rehab experience as Andy DICk, his co-star in the film.

“They certainly never bonded on the set and chatted about anything like this. It’s a complete surprise. No one knew Eric had a problem.”

Eric Roberts, who was arrested in 1987 for for cocaine and marijuana possession and continued to battle a cocaine problem throughout the 1990s, will join some stars like Leif Garrett and Jeremy London in a new season of “Celebrity Rehab.” Filming for the show began on July 19.
