Lindsay Lohan could enter rehab as soon as this week, it is reported today.
“Sources with direct and specific knowledge of the situation tell TMZ Lindsay will enter a live-in facility outside of Los Angeles within days,” TMZ.com reported. “Lindsay is now agonizingly aware she has an addiction problem and also acknowledges the reality (that) addicts often backslide before they get better.”
On Friday, Lohan was ordered jailed by Beverly Hills Superior Court Elden Fox for a month on no bail for failing a drug test, but later that day another judge allowed her to post $300,000 bail, and she was released.
The actress has been ordered to wear an alcohol-sniffing SCRAM anklet, not to drink alcohol or go to bars, to allow authorities to search her residence without a warrant and to submit to more random drug tests.
She could face more jail time on Oct. 22, when she is scheduled to return to Fox’s courtroom for another probation hearing.
The star of “The Parent Trap” and “Freaky Friday” first ran afoul of the law on May 26, 2007, when she drove a Mercedes-Benz into a hedge along Sunset Boulevard.
Two months later she was arrested again in Santa Monica on suspicion of DUI and possession of cocaine.
She agreed to plead no contest and was sentenced to a day in jail and three years probation.
Her probation was extended by a year for not completing alcohol- education classes on schedule.
In July, she missing a required probation hearing before Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, saying her passport was stolen while she was at the Cannes Film Festival, and the judge sentenced her to 90 days in jail. She spent 13 days behind bars before being released again.
As part of her sentence, she was ordered to spend 90 days in an inpatient addiction treatment program. She was sent to UCLA’s neuropsychiatric hospital for evaluation, held for about three weeks and released Aug. 24.
