After failing court mandated drug tests by testing positive for cocaine and Adderall, actress Lindsay Lohan voluntarily checked herself into Rancho Mirage, California’s Betty Ford Clinic last week. TheFrisky.com has profiled the treatment centers Lohan has visited in the past, and elaborated on their policies that patients must adhere to while seeking treatment for substance abuse.
The Mean Girls actress previously checked into the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California in June 2007 after being turned away from the Promises Treatment Center. At Betty Ford, she is required to wake up quite early, perform a series of chores, and partake in various forms of therapeutic treatment.
Unfortunately for Lohan, caffeine, family visits, phone calls, and television are strictly prohibited by the Betty Ford Clinic. When she visited Promises for 45 days three years ago, she was introduced to art therapy, equine-assisted therapy, and holistic treatments.
The actress visited Wonderland – the Rehab Center, not the L.A. nightclub – in January 2007. Wonderland Rehab Center has earned a reputation for giving celebrities special treatment, and it was reported at the time that residents left the facility out of frustration and jealousy over the privileges given to Lohan.
In August 2007, Lohan checked into Sundance, Utah’s Cirque Lodge Treatment Center. At Cirque Lodge, she was exposed to experiential therapy that involved mountain biking, ropes courses, and spending time with horses.
As for UCLA Medical Center, Lohan experienced a 22-day stint at the facility in August 2010 before she was released earlier than expected because doctors deemed her as a changed woman. Whoops.
