Lindsay Lohan wants out of Betty Ford because the doctors took her Adderall

One of the most amusing/depressing parts of Lindsay Lohan’s current rehab stay is that in her mind, this is not a punishment. It’s like she’s doing some kind of regimented spa treatment and nothing about LL’s actions indicate that she’s taking it seriously at all. Also depressing/funny? She seems to have completely forgotten that this rehab stay is mandatory, that it is court-ordered. Last week we heard that she was trying to crack-hustle her way out of Betty Ford, wanting to go to some Hawaiian spa/rehab instead. Well, guess what? The Betty Ford Clinic took away poor Linnocent’s Adderall and now she REALLY wants to go to a new rehab. GAWD! Don’t you know that Lindsay Lohan is doing YOU a favor, rehab? Why you gotta be such a buzzkill, rehab? You used to be so much fun, rehab.

It’s Lindsay Lohan’s worst fear … doctors at The Betty Ford Center have cut off her precious supply of Adderall — and now, she’s hell-bent on making her escape.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay’s claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).

We’re told Betty Ford’s doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug. And, we’re told, the doctors are well aware many people — especially Hollywood types — misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.

Here’s the immediate problem … Lindsay is telling her friends she CANNOT stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall.

And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.

[From TMZ]

This is an unexpected punishment from the Betty Ford Clinic. I believe they let her stay on Adderall the last time she stayed there. Of course, they also gave her day passes to go out drinking the last time she was there, so let’s not put too much faith in Betty Ford. Still, this might be the first time in YEARS that Lindsay is stone-cold sober, no vodka or cocaine or Adderall or anything. She must be freaking out.

Oh, and In Touch Weekly had an interesting story in this week’s issue – apparently just before she flew to LA, Lindsay was partying HARD in New York. A source says, “She partied up until the last minute.” LL and a group of friends went to Gemma and “The entire group ordered dinner and ate, except for Lindsay — all she ordered was two rounds of double vodka on the rocks. She didn’t eat anything! She seemed wasted and downing vodka. She paid for everyone — a few hundred dollars.” A few nights after that, she was spotted at 1Oak and Bitter End, where she was partying hard there as well. Because she takes this all so seriously.

    She doesn’t “need” Adderal, she needs the side effects. If she truly has ADD or ADHD, then other medications can work. She’s such a waste of a rehab space.

    • lucky says:

      People take Adderall mostly for attention deficits. So she needs more attention for her… crack hustling… crack wh*ring… crackety-crack-crack?

      Seriously, what does she need to focus on? If someone (er, a “doctor,” perhaps) is under the impression that Adderall is helping her mentally and physically for the last # of years they need to be brought up on medical malpractice charges.

      Oh wait- I think I just gave them another idea of who else to sue.

      • Lindsay says:

        That suit would be thrown out. There are ADHD psychological test and if you are malingering (like she probably was) and know the symptoms of ADHD you can lie on the test and get the result you want. Tests and evaluations (at least by a shady doctor) are only good if the person is honest. We have seen she has a strange relationship with the truth. You can’t sue someone or hold someone else responsible because you lied and are quite proficient at it. However, I do agree giving any ADHD meds in that drug family to a know addict is dangerous.

      • Nina W says:

        Lucky is right, it’s more than dangerous, it’s useless. What does she need to focus on that requires she be medicated? She is clearly unable to function on this drug so she doesn’t need it.

      • justme says:

        ADHD isn’t just about paying attention and adderall does a lot more than help you focus. My boyfriend has ADHD and takes adderal, if he goes a day without it he turns into a raging lunatic. He looses his temper with the drop of a hat and he is completely unbearable. As long as he is on his medicine hes the sweetest guy on the face of the planet. It really makes a huge difference.

  2. cmc says:

    She was spotted at Bitter End?! That’s significantly downmarket for a celebrity, even Lindsay. Great spot, but..*shudder*- if she’s starting to go to ‘regular New Yorker’ places, that spells trouble for me.

    I hope Betty Ford gets her all nice and sober so I never have to run into her crackie face. Yup- selfish on a Sunday morning!

  3. Dedrie says:

    Why not lessen the active addictive ingredient in the dose each day over a week and see if she notices..? Wait! I think this skit has been done..

  4. SmokeyBlues says:

    This is not a defense of lindsay, but I do remember years ago when she came out of one of her first rehab experiences she had put on a little weight. The tabloids and media were ALL OVER IT! It was sad how much focus was put on an addict gaining weight, as many people do when they get sober.
    But anyway I really hope she stays in the Ford center and is not allowed to continue to do what ever the frick she wants at any given time!
    BTW anyone have experience with adderal addiction? If be interested to hear what that’s like.

    • ShaCur says:

      I have severe ADHD, and I fought going on Adderall for a long time just because in my line of work I see people misuse it or be put on it for the most ridiculous things. I’ve tried several others and was on Vyvanse for a while (addiction potential is lower and its absorbed differently so misuse won’t give you an immediate high…but people will still buy/sell it) but had horrible headaches. I am on Adderall now , 30mgs which is a pretty good dose. The thing is, when you actually have ADHD you don’t really get those “fun” side effects. I know people will swear they do, but in the support group I attend to supplement the med, everyone else is like me, and clinicans I work with have said the same thing. my appetite hasn’t changed, weight hasn’t changed (if anything I gained because im finally able to be calm and sit still). When I dont take it takes a day or two, and then I’m impossible to be around. For me, adderall is very effective…but for someone abusing it, like any drug, withdrawal and detox is fairly short…not fun, but its the psychological addiction that gets most people. I imagine as awful as it is for me to go back to 100mph, it must be as awful to go back down to 30.

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        I used vyvsnse and loved it. But it made my joints ache like my whole body was arthritic. But I am lucky. I “learned” a lot about my add and some decent coping skills. Now I just taje it as needed instead of every day and that seems to work great for me. Best of luck! ADD is rough!

      • paranormalgirl says:

        When you’re on the proper therapeutic dose, you SHOULDN’T get most of the “fun” side effects. It should just do what it’s supposed to do.

      • Sugar says:

        agreed regarding it’s usage. I work for mental health & it’s easy to tell those who take it because they need it & those who are addicted. The dog ate my prescription gets pretty old.

      • Noodle says:

        I used to use Adderall for adult ADD. For me, it just made me feel really full all the time– I could only eat a few bites of food without feeling stuffed. I lost 10 pounds like THAT and then put the same ten on when I went off the meds.

        I didn’t have any of the other “fun?” side-effects– unless one calls not having a running mental narrative going at all times a fun side effect.

        Alas, I had to go off due to the fact that my hands and feet were always freezing- and that is a sign of poor circulation. Considering my grandma died of a stroke at 34, I’m not a good candidate for a med like that.

    • Lindsay says:

      It has a reputation as on of the hardest drugs to get off of: http://www.thefix.com/content/10-hardest-addictive-drugs-to-kick7055#slide8

      Depression, anxiety, extreme fatigue, ect
      http://prescription-drug.addictionblog.org/adderall-withdrawal/

      If you look up Adderall withdraw you will see hellish account of people who got off of it.

      • Petee says:

        Any type of speed is unpleasant to get off of.Not super hard or life threatening.Yes you get depressed but it is temporary.You eat a lot oh well you didn’t eat right and your body is trying to balance thing’s out.You sleep too much.Wish everyone had that problem.Been there done that.Try getting off alcohol or benzos where you can have seizures and life threatening withdrawals.been there done that too.No sympathy for her.She won’t die from getting off of this.It’s in her head.She is a addict.

    • DottieDot says:

      I am on 30 MG Adderall and have never had a problem going on or going off. I have stopped taken it without side effects, started using it again, take it only when I feel I need it. No problems at all.

    • erin says:

      this stuff is a nightmare. I nearly didn’t come back from my experiences with Adderall and Vyvanse. I’ve had ADD my entire life and was a classic ADD kid, but wasn’t diagnosed til I was an adult as many doctors didn’t think girls got ADD in the 80s. the doctors just keep upping the dose, eventually your body really just cannot handle the stress of being on AMPHETAMINES 24/7. i lose so much weight, could barely focus and eventually the Adderall made my ADD WORSE and also made my previously mild OCD go through the roof, to where I was consistently several hours late to everything. I quit cold turkey, which was hard but nowhere near as hard as coming off of benzodiazepines for anxiety. In my opinion this stuff should be banned. The potential for harm and addiction is just far too high. Major dietary modifications have been proven to relief most of the worst symptoms of ADD/ADHD.

  5. Samigirl says:

    Well how dare they take away something she’s addicted to while she’s at rehab?!

  6. dorothy says:

    I hope she bolts in the middle of the night. At this point I’m just excited at the prospect of her going to jail.

  7. bluhare says:

    I’m just sad the gal she hit (Dawn I forget her last name) isn’t there any more. That would really make this interesting.

  8. only1shmoo says:

    This girl has been repeatedly given the criminal justice system the finger (literally), owes large sums of money to the IRS, has been apprehended for stealing, DUI, hit-and-runs…the list goes on, and she gets handled with kid gloves

    …………

    Meanwhile, Lauren Hill, a mother of 6, gets sentenced to 3 months in PRISON for tax evasion. I can’t even begin to express just how unjust this is!

  9. DanaG says:

    Fancy not being able to take an addictive drug that you don’t really need at a rehab! What a shock. Lilo really thought she could fool the Drs but maybe after last times stay which was a failure and it was published everythey, they may actually treat her like the addict she is. The real problem is that Lilo will not admit there is something wrong so they are fighting a losing battle we all know she will go straight back to everything the minute she is released. Hope she does try to run and get’s put in jail maybe then she will take it as a punishment not a holiday.

  10. A says:

    Dear god, just lock her away!!!

    And it was obviously clear that she partied to the last minute as she wore the same clothes for two days straight before she checked into rehab.

  11. Jess v says:

    I read on radar (slow Sunday) that if she bails now it will be a win win for her.
    - she will have been able to go to coachella
    - jail time will be a couple of hours at most due to overcrowding, nothing the judge can do about that, it’s the sheriffs decision.

    Not sure if this is true but it sounded somewhat logical.

  12. dcypher1 says:

    The gig is up blohan. I love the fact that things arent going her way for once in her life she’s not in control.

  13. bangarang says:

    Why haven’t they taken her adderall away from her in her prior trips to rehab.

  14. Ellie66 says:

    I wonder how bad are the withdrawals from Adderall are?

    • Keera says:

      I have no idea, but in her case I hope it ain’t easy.

    • judyjudyjudy says:

      I think you can get fat fast.

    • Jenna says:

      It’s not deadly, and in the spectrum of misery of withdrawal issues, it’s a pretty ‘easy’ one, comparatively. (The reason drugs never appealed to me, or even smoking or drinking beyond the odd glass of something with a meal or sipped over the course of a night isn’t due to any moral highground of my own. I’ve got a family of addicts of every stripe and after spending a LOT of time watching people both make fools of themselves AND cleaning up a lot of puke – not to mention even less pleasant bodily functions – it never appealed.) That being said, it’s still no fun at all and the dangerous aspect comes in when its piggybacking on a myriad of OTHER meds and substances she shouldn’t have been taking. It can go from being simply lethargic, nauseous (while still being dang close to ravenous at the same time – which in itself is a miserably weird place to be), dizzy, and in some extreme cases heart palpitations and heart rhythms going seriously wonky can make it important to get off the stuff under a doctor’s close eye and with people nearby in case you need help. (Had a cousin with this, and like Lindsay, she was mixing it with other things to ramp up the ‘fun’) The heart thing needs watched not just because it’s a seriously sick feeling to manage but also things like concerns about fainting on the stairs or going under in the tub. (In my cousin’s case, she wasn’t allowed a bath for 3 weeks, just quick showers with either a family member or someone in the facility sitting on the toilet waiting in case of need. I spent a lot of that summer sitting on the edge of a toilet holding a book and a towel trying to ignore her bitching and ranting about how unfair this was and how mean we all were)

      In Lindsay’s case, the fact she has been mixing it with such high levels of booze and god knows WHAT all else (allegedly, so I don’t get sued) is what makes a typically unpleasant but manageable – think ’2 week long case of mild flu with a migraine, a case of the twitches and a knot in the shoulder from the chest hurting a bit’. Not ~FUN~ by any means, but doable and not something that will make you scream, puke, and become violent or suicidal usually – situation so much worse and so much more likely to need doctors about the place is the mixing. THAT can cause some scary need to keep an eye on heart arrhythmia, shakes, and even total ping-ponging back and forth between near narcoleptic faints to manic hyperactivity like a squirrel on speed.

      God be with all those stuck in the clinic with her – doctors, nurses, staff, patients… forget her (and how I wish I could), I think the real shame is how potentially damaging she might end up being for the folks who are at the facility who really ARE there to get better. How anyone will be able to focus on doing the work they need to do to get sober, get through the detox, work on why they went down that path, learn the tools they need to stay ON a new healthier and hopefully happily path, and manage to start to rebuild all the places they have shattered with Typhoon Lohan in the place, I can’t imagine!

  15. Ramona says:

    I think she needs lobotomy or high voltage shock therapy. It’s not even funny anymore. It’s pathetic.

  16. grabbyhands says:

    And this sets up yet another crisis, because it seems inconceivable Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors would ignore the Betty Ford doctors and trump their diagnosis by letting Lindsay make a move.

    This paragraph gives me so many LOLS because really?? Did they magically forget that they’ve let her call all the shots so far? Please, this trick will either be back on her drug or “rehabbing” in some other resort by the end of the week.

  17. K-rock says:

    I don’t know what their plan is over at Betty Ford, but I seriously doubt that they can just stop her cold turkey. They would either have to wean her off, or give her some sort of substitute I would think? Meds that change your brain chemistry can’t just be “stopped”. People go in to convulsions. Regardless here comes the Lilo crack train barreling down the tracks!

  18. The Original Mia says:

    Please run! Please. I hope the police are waiting for her at the entrance to slap the handcuffs on her & drag her kicking & screaming to jail. All this bending over backwards for this crackhead is ridiculous.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Yes, but please do remember that last time she did a runner from and assault at BF, they couldn’t press charges regarding her being in violation, because those were from a different county.

      Or so they said.

  19. Bobbi says:

    The adderal is the problem. Now she can get proper treatment for all additictions.

    • Lulu says:

      Oh gosh, wouldn’t that be nice?? Unfortunately her REAL problem is her Narcissistic Personality Disorder. They might have a WEE chance of digging through all the layers of her crap and getting her actual help now that she is completely off all drugs. But I’m not holding my breathe! Because the most important part of the equation is Lindsey. She won’t do anything she doesn’t want to do, and admitting you have a problem (for REAL admitting it – to YOURSELF, and not lying about it to others) is the first step she is going to have to take.

  20. Jennifer says:

    Move that cone, I’m Lindsay Lohan.

  21. valleymiss says:

    This is a stupid pointless question but…how do you pronounce the name of the club, 10ak/1Oak that she went to? Do you say “Ten Oak”? (Because that’s what I would guess.) Or is it Ten Ay Kay? Though I live here, I’ve never been to that club.

  22. DT says:

    No addict/alcoholic can stay sober while taking daily doses of speed. Clean is clean.

    • Lulu says:

      Well, I respectfully disagree, especially if abusing amphetamines has not been a previous issue. Having your ADHD treated in SOMEway can only help someone who truly needs it. Studies have shown that untreated ADHD’ers are very likely to abuse drugs/alcohol in an attempt to self medicate. It is a very anxiety producing disorder.

      • Petee says:

        Well if she really need’s it and taking it why all the self medicating?Look I use to be a tweaker and she is too.The only time in my life I smoked cigarettes was when I was tweaking because they taste good for some reason and she always has a smoke hanging out of her mouth.She is compulsive about shopping and spending money.She also seem’s to be able to drink a lot of alcohol which she might need to calm her down.This girl is a addict plain and simple!!I have a nephew that is being treated with these drugs and he does not like them but it helps him focus.She is abusing them straight up.

  23. caitrin says:

    I’ve taken Adderall for years,to help me cope with my severe chronic depression and my lack of energy from it(a rare use for Adderall but certainly not unheard of by psychiatrists.)The times I’ve gone off it, for a little over a week, I went down gradually, and the only memorable side effects of the withdrawal were extreme tiredness and being very hungry. The HUNGER part is what this spoiled girl fears, b/c she dreads gaining an ounce of weight. That’s her thing with her Adderall. I doubt she is getting “high” from it in the standard sense, at least not in the dosage a doctor could acceptably prescribe. I live in L.A. and know a lot of ordinary people who take Adderall solely for weight loss and weight maintenance.

    • akua says:

      Same here, I took it for a few months to deal with side effects of other pysch meds. When I went off those, I stopped the adderral too. Mainly so so tired – could hardly stay awake, and hungry for the first time in months. It went away fairly quickly, a week or two, but I was on a pretty low does (10mg or 15 mg) and didn’t take it most weekends either.

  24. janie says:

    I’m curious? Who are these friends? I thought she was banned from the phone & visitors? Think she’ll get her way & be moved? Nothing would surprise me at this point.

  25. Andrea says:

    A question, because I dont understand. People keep saying that if she went to jail, shed be out in not very long…but her original sentense was over 200 days, she negoticiated the 90 day rehab.

    Just how much would her sentence be reduced if she had gone to jail? Is it like a percent? And if she does leave…how much time would be added on?

    • iheartjacksparrow says:

      The problem is, California jails and prisons are suffering from overcrowding. And the state always seem to be on the verge of bankruptcy. So bottom line, California doesn’t have the room for all the criminals nor the money to take care of them. So anyone convicted of a non-violent crime gets their sentence reduced to days, or even hours. I don’t know if there’s a specific formula for determining what the jail time will be, but since LiLo has never committed a crime using a weapon or threatening to kill or injure someone, she’d probably serve a day or two and then walk with time served.

      • andrea says:

        I guess thats what makes it weird for me…if she was going to be out in a few days, why would she try to negotiate 90 days in rehab instead. I guess probably because she thought it would be like last time…

        thanks for your reply.

      • Nina W says:

        It’s classic LILO, like most of her legal problems if she just dealt with them instead of trying to avid dealing with them they would be resolved very quickly. But no, she has to drag it out and increase the drama with a bunch of shenanigans.

  26. teehee says:

    D-HAHH!! Sorry, cant help it

  27. akua says:

    It says they rarely give it to anyone over 15, does that mean they give it to people under 15, and if so why? Or just that no one under 15 goes there? That part just struck me as weird.

  28. Lexi says:

    I dont even know why judges even bother sending her to rehab, it is such a joke, she doesnt take it seriously, she doesnt take any of it seriously, she knows that she’ll never do any hard time in jail

  29. carol says:

    oh for god sake. This woman needs to get her shit together already.

  30. Millie says:

    I would like to go to a Hawaiian spa too

  31. Dawn says:

    Normally I would not feel an inch of sympathy for someone in Lindsey’s shoes but I do for her. I believe that she does have talent but that her parents have used and abused her to the point that she no longer knows which end is up. She has been in the business for a long time and god only knows what that hag of a mother had her do to get parts. After all Hollywood can be a very sick place with powerful people who play by different rules than the rest of us. Having sex with children would hardly be a new thing. It can’t be easy to be the breadwinner for your family at the age of 12. There does come a time when you admit all the shit that is weighing you down and then you move on and that is what Lindsey has to do to survive. The first people out of her life have to be her mother and father or she hasn’t a chance. I wish her well but won’t hold my breath.

  32. Marybel says:

    Betty Ford, say NO. NO. NO. Crackie Whackie has never heard the word. Say it over and over until she understands that it applies to her too.

  33. WendyNerd says:

    As a former Adderall User, this is what the withdrawal is:

    You’re sleepy and hungry for a few days.

    She’s just afraid of having to “gasp” gain weight! See, on Adderall, you don’t have to exercise or eat right to stay skinny. It makes you lose weight LIKE CRAZY and if I had to guess, it’s the only thing that has kept her at a low weight these past few years. If she really goes off it, she’ll get big, mark my words. And I actually think that could be a good thing for her. The only real crime in Hollywood, if you’re a white woman, is being fat. If she gets fat– no more people stunt casting her to be their “muse”, no more Charlie Sheen bailouts, no more Johns paying for her because she’s “ugh!” fat and fat chicks are gross! So, no more enabling. She’d no longer be a piggy bank for her leech mother and it might actually turn out to be the impetus for her to change…. Then again she could just end up like Barbara Peyton instead.

    I would like to add that I do not find fat people gross, I was merely writing from a Hollywood vapid mentality.

    • Petee says:

      Thank you.I have been both heavy and a meth abuser and you are right.

      • Deirdre says:

        I have no comment to make about Lilo.

        What I DO want to say is kudos to you Petee for pulling your life together. I wish you health and happiness in the future.

        And that goes to everyone here who’ve overcome similar problems.
        Each of you are a far better person than Lilo could even think to be.

      • Petee says:

        Thanx Deidre.That mean’s alot.It’s hard work on a daily basis.It’s progress not perfection.I went to Betty Ford and they helped in all aspect’s of my life.I didn’t like it at first and was homesick but at least I was willing and accepted I needed some help.This girl need’s something badly.Look at her picture’s here in court.Her face look’s sick with drug’s.I am glad they took her off of it and yes they will give her something to wean off.This place isn’t as cushy as everyone thinks.I hope she get’s my old counselor.She didn’t put up with anyone’s crap.

      • WendyNerd says:

        I would also like to congratulate you, Peetee. Good for you! Meth is a horrible drug.

      • Petee says:

        Thanx WendyNerd.It is one of those drug’s where you brain think’s you need it.I took it for weight loss like a lot of women do.Glad to say I have been off of it for year’s.Everyone have a great day.I love everyone on this site.No wonder it is my favorite.

  34. Gahnzo says:

    “Some people pursue their addictions into the gates of insanity and death”. Lindsay will be another one of those statistics. It’s sad really, but I say let her go, let her got to jail. Or just let her party till she drops. Clearly she has not hit her bottom. Maybe it’s time to let her…..

  35. Gabby says:

    I suspect LiLo is ADHD (among other things) and that Adderall (at regular doses) helped her at one point with executive functioning difficulties.

    But Adderall isn’t like insulin for a diabetic. You don’t *need* it for your ADHD. It’s no problem to go off it. And what is she planning to do while in rehab that she feels requires it – heavy multi-tasking??

    I don’t even take it on days I’m not working because I like my scattered ADHD brain when I’m off work.

  36. SusieQ2 says:

    @Petee

    Co-sign what Deirdre said. Continued success to you! *Hugs*

  37. Onyx XV says:

    Good. Maybe this time she will experience actual rehab.

  38. jwoolman says:

    I doubt that BF let her have her Adderall last time. She was there on mandatory court-ordered substitute for jail rehab then, also. They did let her smoke and she could buy Adderall on her old prescription when on her day passes in the half-way residence. So she might have done that and if they weren’t regularly testing her then she would have succeeded detection. But the standard protocol for a reputable rehab like BF would be to take her off such dubious things as Adderall, just as UCLA did as her last rehab place (plus mental evaluation) just before BF. Adderall was not on the allowed list for her when she was randomly tested between UCLA and BF (she lasted a couple of weeks before testing positive for cocaine on outpatient status after less than a month at UCLA, she ran to BF to minimize the chance that the judge would toss her back in jail at her probation violation hearing for that, he told her she had to stay at BF until early January, more than three months).
    -
    My guess is that Lindsay was just ventilating when talking with her mom or dad and one or both of them skipperdeed over to the tabloids to make some cash. She knows the drill, she’s done it before, and she knows she’s facing real jail time if she leaves BF. I can believe it’s harder this time because she’s in much worse shape than 2.5 years ago. It’s her dad who has the delusion that he can get her into the cushy Florida pseudo-rehab that pays him for every mention in the media. Her mom must be pretty desperate for cash these days, the IRS and Shawn Holley have Lindsay’s assets locked up like Lindsay Lohan… Meanwhile Dina’s house is in foreclosure and this time there might not be any escape from that.

  39. hejanedoe says:

    Just another C R A CK H E A D loser….lock her into jail for a five yeae stintts the only way that crack ho wi l rehab

  40. VioletCrumble says:

    While I can understand the cries to lock her up in gaol, will this be a viable solution? From what I understand, Californian goals are so overcrowded that more “creative” solutions are found, such as locking people away for a couple of weeks only. So this is no solution. If Californian goals are anything like Australian goals, it’s a silly option, because drugs are VERY easily procured in gaol. This would be a counterproductive move. The courts should have a list of approved rehab centres and once ordered into one of these by the court, it should stand as a sentence. No questions. Just take her off to an accredited, court-approved centre, and review her situation every three months. What I don’t understand is why she gets to make any choices in the matter.

    If she legitimately has ADD, cognitive dysfunction or depression, or inability to keep dopamine in the synapse then it’s completely understandable that she has a prescription for and needs Adderall.

    Adderall is a miracle drug for those that NEED it. Giving the person the brain chemistry (ie. dopamine) of a normal person calms them down and focuses them, rather than wires them.

    Unfortunately this is now the ubiquitous drug of young Hollywood, and is used primarily to stay thin. When you’re on Adderall you simply don’t think about food.

    As any long-term user of Adderall knowns (me being one of them), if you are taking therapeutic doses for long periods of time you are no longer getting high from the drug.

    Withdrawal can be a little worse than “hungry and tired” for a few days if you really need the drug and have been on it for a long time. It can lead to suicidal thoughts and severe depression.

    If she doesn’t have dopamine deficiency then she’ll go through a very uncomfortable few days/few weeks then be fine.
