Lindsay Lohan’s Adderall might be taken away from her at Betty Ford

Lindsay Lohan’s crack shenanigans fell to the wayside during the Met Gala coverage, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t lots of stories about her. She’s still in the Betty Ford Clinic, although sources did claim that she’s looking to transfer to a Hawaiian rehab, of course. So what else is the Teflon Cracken up to? Some bullet points:

*LL’s life at Betty Ford is regimented. She gets up 6:30 every morning (me too) and she does chores. A source insists that “she is getting no special treatment at Betty Ford. She is being treated like everyone else.”

*Radar says LL has “completed” the 48-hour detox program and transitioned to the main dorm facility. A source tells Radar, “Lindsay was placed in detox for almost forty-eight hours. She is adapting to being back at Betty Ford and is very receptive to the care plan that has been created for her.” Detoxed of everything… except for Adderall, I’m assuming.

*As for the Adderall, TMZ says that right now, LL is still on Adderall but that could change. According to TMZ, “sources tell us doctors at Betty Ford are currently evaluating Lindsay’s diagnosis and the efficacy of the drug. If doctors disbelieve her diagnosis or the usefulness of Adderall, they will cut her off.” Here’s a spoiler: they’re going to let her keep taking it.

*Radar also says that per court order, LL isn’t going to be getting any “day passes” to go out drinking and cracking like the last time she stayed at Betty Ford. Yeah. We’ll see. Apparently, she’s going to stay in the “hospital” wing of the clinic for the full 90 days, so no day passes.

*One problem with Betty Ford: they only offer 30 day treatments, so LL might have to do the same 30-day program three times in a row, although Shawn Holley insisted that Betty Ford does offer some longer programs.

*TMZ says Mark Heller was the one who was hellbent on getting LL into Morningside, even though he knew that the facility’s license had been revoked.

*Shawn Holley got the judge to formally throw Mark Heller off the case and she got the judge to formally approve the Betty Ford Clinic for LL on Monday. The judge told Shawn, “You snatched her from the precipice.” Meaning that if not for Shawn, he would have issued an arrest warrant.

*Meanwhile, Ali Lohan gave a suspicious new interview to WWD – gee, I wonder if Mother Crackhead’s need to pimp is so strong, she pushed Ali out there now that LL is going to be in rehab for 90 days? Ali told the WWD, “We’re close, we love each other and we have arguments like any other family. At the end of the day, I only trust my family. I feel that so many things have happened, but at the end of the day, they’re always going to be there for you.”

*Ali says Lindsay has given her advice: “We always have good sister-bonding time. Whenever we see each other, we’re always talking about clothes and all girly things, you know? She just says the main thing is to do your best and to do what you love. We’re very close and speak very often.”

    Wonder if Crackie is digging an escape tunnel.
    Ali sounds like she has Stockholm syndrome.

    • Hope says:

      I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who saw that. Things just seem… sketchy when it comes to Ali. Not that she’s a sketchy person, but I don’t think Kaiser has been too far off the truth when she’s said that Ali is probably being pimped out by Dina. I just… I don’t know, man. I feel bad for the girl, for both of the girls really. And while I know Lindsay is a grown woman who shouldn’t let her past define her and who can make her own decisions and choices, I still think she wasn’t set to be a successful person by either of her parents. Fingers crossed they both make it out alive…

    • Decloo says:

      At least she’s not so skeletal. I guess they let her back from exile in, was it Thailand?

  2. Dutch says:

    No Adderall? What kind of rehab facility is this? No wonder the Cracken wants to change rehabs.

  3. LeeLoo says:

    If Lindsay legitimately has ADHD (which I doubt) she should be on Vyvanse because it is very hard to abuse Vyvanse. Your body will only absorb what it needs and kick out the rest.

    I know everyone else is up in arms about her not getting any jail time but I just don’t care. If she went to jail she would have jail guards she could manipulate. At Betty Ford she will manipulate the staff. Lindsay does not want to be helped and making her get help is just wasting everyone’s time. If it were jail she would leave the same person she was when she went in. I think people are fooling themselves if they think jail would have straightened her up. She would have figured out a way to make herself the victim in her own little world. The only way to fix her is to isolate her from the public so she is no longer a threat. The only way to prove she is a threat is for her to seriously hurt or kill someone or she will do so by killing herself. It is sad but true.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Vyvanse is harder to abuse but not impossible. There are still some dangers with it. Kids need to be on a very low dose if they take it but I have some serious objections to giving kids stimulant medications as is.

        What pisses me off to no end is the fact there are so many people who are utterly selfish that they would abuse prescription medications like stimulants used for ADHD treatment and take them away from people like me who legitimately have ADHD. I am someone who takes my medicine as prescribed and never allowed anyone to take my medicine (other than Mr. LeeLoo who also has ADHD and has been prescribed the same medicine at the same dose and we occasionally borrow a pill if we are out). There have been so many times I’ve had to wait 2-3 days for my meds because my pharmacy has to order more due to the stimulants being in high demand. While I definitely know ADHD is a legitimate condition I would wager 60-75% of those who have been diagnosed do not need stimulant medication. Sometimes I think it’s parents who want to shift the blame for not parenting their child and want an easy fix (no offense to any parent who has a child with ADHD, I assume you are doing the right thing) and the other times it’s adult junkies like Lilo who abuse it to get high. They need to tighten up the diagnostic criteria for ADHD to make sure those who legitimately have it have access to medication and those who don’t have it cannot have access to it.

        Also, parents: if your child has ADHD may I suggest finding a child psychologist who specializes in helping children with ADHD and exhausting all theraputic options before putting you kids on stimulants. I have some serious concerns about it causing permanent issues in children and research has shown that when caught before age 6 that kids can learn the skills needed to cope with their symptoms without resorting to ADHD medications. It has been shown that catching it early and getting kids into therapy can be just as effective as giving them stimulants. It isn’t always the case so use your best judgement but I wanted to give a little friendly reminder. :-)

      • anon33 says:

        Leelo, I totally agree with you about kids and ADHD. I work in disability law and almost every child case I have the parent thinks the kid has ADHD for regular reasons like “he doesnt want to clean his room.” And then the docs give them stimulants for that!!!! It’s insane and sad.

      • WendyNerd says:

        LeeLoo, as a fellow ADHD and former user (NOT ABUSER) of Adderall and current user of Vyvanse, I have to say I agree with everything you’ve said.

    • taxi says:

      I’d question how long she’d actually stay in jail. Would they actually keep her for 90 days for a non-violent crime or let her out early because of overcrowding?

      • jwoolman says:

        I think this time she would not be able to skipperdee out of jail any sooner than after 90 days. She had a lot of consecutive sentences piled up. Just the probation violation alone would have added about 9 months. Plus they could have pursued a DUI if they wanted. My bet is that they have enough testimony to make it stick well enough. That little black box in the Porsche probably revealed how fast she was really going.

  4. Belle Epoch says:

    What happened to Ali? She used to be gorgeous. Her expression is scary now.

  5. MrsB says:

    So, I’m not sure how this works, but I know that rehabs drug test their patients when they check in. If she were really drug free, would they make her go through detox??

    • Emily says:

      You have to be monitored very closely when you’re first stopping drugs. I’m going to be stopping Tramadol in a while, and my pain doctor is being very very careful about that. Though Tramadol isn’t supposed to be highly addictive, lucky me, I’m addicted to it, though I’ve been taking less than the dose my doctors have prescribed for two years. And when drugs you’re addicted to, including alcohol, are taken away, stuff can get very ugly very quickly. Suicide attempts are not uncommon.

    • Twez says:

      I put clients into rehab all the time who test clean. If it’s an inpatient unit, they will usually do a mandatory 24-48 hour detox, especially if the client admits any abuse of alcohol. A lot of drugs of abuse clear the system quickly. (THC lasts the longest.) So if someone gets busted with non-prescribed Adderall, it may be 2-3 weeks before they get evaluated for treatment and they could test clean.

  6. DreamyK says:

    Lindsay Lohan and the word *snatched* are like peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper. Beware denizens of Betty Ford! The cracken will snatch you baldheaded while filching your personal items!

  7. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    Ali has the cold, dead eyes of a shark.

    But I suspect she has always only been shark bait.

  8. Samigirl says:

    I wonder if they could switch her to concerta or vyvanse? I mean if she legitimately has ADHD, she should be happy that she’s getting medicine!

    • Poink517 says:

      Or straterra. It’s a non-stimulant used to treat ADD. I’m surprised a doc would give her a stimulant with her history of drug use, but I guess she only used coke 4 or 5 times. Silly me.

    • squeakie says:

      I think she wants to be on it to lose weight honestly. I have been perscribed it since I was a preteen and just stopped taking it now that I am out of college and I have seriously gained about 15-20 lbs. Im probably just going to go back on it, but I think adderall is how most celebrities maintain being SO skinny

  9. JL says:

    Lilo is busted, you can’t DETOX from nothing, so yeah she’s using. Ok catch your breath – shocking I know.

    Ali looks like a transvestite, and not in a good way. I totally didn’t recognize her.

  10. doofus says:

    on what planet is Ali model material?

    that girl is homely. and I’ve seen a couple of her covers…she’s not much better with make up and airbrushing.

  11. grabbyhands says:

    Wasn’t it determined that Radar was White Oprah’s mouthpiece?

    I love the judge’s dramatic “you snatched her from the precipice”. Bitch, please-no one believes you were really going to issue an arrest warrant.

    I’m also pretty certain that she’s going to get to do whatever the hell she wants in rehab, inlcuding taking her Adderall and getting as many day passes as she wants.

  12. LeeLoo says:

    @Squeakie I read an article that parents and producers get a studio physician to prescribe stimulant medicine to help these young actors remember their lines. How f***ing scary is that?!

  13. teehee says:

    She doesnt need any more amphetamines than she manages to hustle into her daily routine. Take it away– take it all away! Shes more adhd now than when she was young, now that she is “on” this stuff. Nothing she says is legit anyway, and it isnt like she has to go to school or to work and ‘cant afford’ to not function during her rehab. Only thing that would happen to her, is she would return to some sort of normalcy instead of being so cracked out/methed out/amphetamined to high heaven.

  14. janie says:

    Wow! I’m going to wish Betty Ford Clinic good luck with Lilo!! Sounds like you might need it.

  15. erika says:

    ha ha! ASS Check! look at the balding, chubby man in a suit/tie! he is seen to the left of ali in the pic where she is briskly walking across the street. He has this side eye that is checking her ass out! haha

  16. Emily says:

    If all you talk about with your sister is clothes, you’re not close with your sister. Which is probably all to the good, in Ali’s case.

    There are all these conspiracy theories floating around over why LL always gets treated so well. I’ve bought into a couple myself. But I wonder if it really all comes down to this: Shawn Holley is a great lawyer. If you have a good enough lawyer, you can get away with pretty much anything. What I don’t know is why Holley keeps taking Lindsay back, and maybe that’s where the conspiracy theories should be focusing. Who’s paying the bills? She’s too smart to think Lindsay will.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      TMZ ran a story where they said Shawn basically garnished Lindsay’s wages. There are paycheques that Lindsay is expecting which will be signed over to Shawn instead.

      Which is the only thing that would work. You can’t trust the Cracken to remember to (or feel any responsibility to) pay anybody.

  17. boo says:

    The interview Lilo did with Piers Morgan (is that his name?) where she said she had used cocaine 3 or 4 times was so hilarious, are we actually supposed to believe that? Lilo actually thinks in her addled brain that she can tell that whopper of a lie and we are not going to laugh our asses off? Come on, Lilo is absolutely incapable of telling the truth when it comes to her continued drug and alcohol abuse, and as anyone who is a recovering addict or knows an addict, the first step is to tell the truth and be honest about what it is we have been doing. Lilo is not there yet, she lies to others but the person that it really hurts is herself. She obviously has not reached bottom, and from experience I can tell you that not everybody does.

  18. Glaughy says:

    I love lindsay. I dont know why.. she just doesn’t give a f- . At all. Its fun.

    This following quote brings me more joy than I can express.

    Stop being mean about Ali people! The poor kid. Leave her alone. I think she looks better because she looks more like her original self again now. I’d say the plastic surgery she had settled down and she put on a few much needed kilos. The fringe is not great on her but really, she is so young, leave her be. I commend her just for not being The Cracken 2.0!

  21. Belle Epoch says:

    I didn’t detect meanness about Ali as much as concern. What HAS she been doing for the last year? Why don’t these girls go to school instead of getting thrown to the wolves somewhere? Ali does not look like a happy, wholesome girl with a bright future.
