Doctors at the Betty Ford rehab centre are said to have cut off Lindsay Lohan’s Adderall supply, according to reports.

TMZ claims that the doctors evaluated Lindsay Lohan, 26, last week and decided that she did not need the pills.

Lindsay Lohan takes the tablets because she claims to suffer from ADHD but the website reports that health practitioners at the treatment facility believe there are substitute medication.

TMZ also claims that Lindsay Lohan is now “hell bent on making her escape”.

The actress is said to want to move to another rehab centre where she can take the drug.

Adderall is known to be misused as a weight control and Betty Ford reportedly do not prescribe the drug to people over the age of 15.

The news of Lindsay Lohan’s rehab stay comes shortly after it was revealed that her parents Dina and Michael Lohan may be summoned to the Southern California-based Betty Ford Center for a family therapy session.

A source revealed to RadarOnline.com: “Lindsay’s counselors want to get Dina and Michael to Betty Ford for a series of sessions in the next few weeks.

“They feel like having her work through her family issues could help Lindsay’s recovery.”

“Families are encouraged to participate in group therapy,” the insider added.

But Dina Lohan dispelled the claim as fodder in a response to Radar.

“Where did you hear that from? News to me!” she answered when contacted by the website.

“I have a warrant for child support against him… he owes thousands in back child support,” she continued.

Meanwhile, Michael Lohan alleges he has paid Dina the child support in full, even furnishing a cashier’s cheque for $8,500 as proof.

He told Radar of a potential therapy session: “I will gladly attend, like I’ve always wanted to.

“It’s the only thing that will give Lindsay resolve and a chance to finally have her life and both parents back in her life.

“This is about Lindsay, not Dina or me. Our family needs healing and that’s the only way Lindsay is going to beat this”

“I’ll be there for anything she needs,” Michael Lohan finished.

The notorious couple finalized their divorce in 2007 after a tumultuous 22-year marriage.

They have remained estranged for years, communicating with each other only through bitter comments made to various press outlets.

It remains unknown whether Dina and Michael Lohan’s three other children, Michael Jr., 25, Ali, 19, and Cody, 16, were invited to participate in the group session.


Lindsay Lohan finally checked into the Betty Ford Center rehab facility on Thursday night, narrowly avoiding an arrest warrant after failing to enter her court-approved facility earlier that day.

Lindsay Lohan’s entry into the Rancho Mirage, California clinic comes after she is said to have rehired her previous lawyer Shawn Holley, who negotiated with Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White to approve the Betty Ford Center as an acceptable rehab alternative.

The troubled actress was scheduled to start rehab on Thursday morning to begin her 90 days of court-ordered treatment.

But she is reported to been “spooked” by the amount of paparazzi waiting outside the Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach, and refused to check into the facility.

Lindsay Lohan, 26, was said to have then “begged” Shawn Holley to return as her lawyer after prosecutors said they would seek an arrest warrant if the star was not back in rehab by sunrise on Friday, reported TMZ.

The actress was allegedly unimpressed with the way lawyer Mark Heller had handled her case, and spent the better part of Thursday convincing Shawn Holley to return after she sensationally fired her last year.

“Lindsay cannot stand [Mark Heller] and thinks he doesn’t know what he is doing,” a source told RadarOnline.com.

“So late Thursday, from hiding, she began calling and emailing Shawn incessantly.

“Shawn has always had a soft spot for Lindsay, even after everything she has pulled. She hates to see her suffering,” added the source.

Shawn Holley was able to broker a last minute deal with the D.A. to approve the Betty Ford Center, where Lindsay Lohan famously fought with staffer during another rehab stay in 2010.

Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael confirmed that she had finally entered a facility, although he didn’t confirm which one.

“I can’t say where she is. She did check into a rehab. I’m really happy she’s in a rehab,” Michael Lohan told The New York Post on Friday.

Michael Lohan said Lindsay sent him a text message on Thursday night to say she was in rehab, but that she would rather be at a more upmarket facility.

“Yes, daddy I’m OK, just annoyed by this happening,” he said she wrote.

“I really want to go to treatment and, of course, something has to go wrong…I want to go to Hawaii or Antigua.”

The news comes after Lindsay Lohan decided not to enter her court-ordered rehab treatment on Thursday morning.

“She felt Morningside was not suitable for her,” a source told Us Weekly about her decision to leave.

“There were too many paparazzi everywhere and she didn’t feel safe.”

RadarOnline, however, reported that Lindsay Lohan did in fact walk through the doors of the facility, but left just a few minutes later.

“She told people there that she didn’t need rehab,” a source told Radar.

“And then she left. Everyone was stunned.”

Michael Lohan also confirmed to Radar that his daughter never checked in.

Lindsay Lohan was spotted at a Fry’s Electronics store in Fountain Valley at 8.45 a.m., while at the same time her lawyer was in court asserting she had already checked into rehab.
