Judge Elden Fox issued a court order Wednesday morning to release Lindsay Lohan from rehab at UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital based on doctor’s recommendations.
After catching a break on her jail sentence, Lindsay Lohan was released early from rehab as well. Lohan served only 14 days of her 90 day jail sentence and has now been released after spending 23 days at UCLA Medical Center for rehab. Judge Marsha Revel had originally sentenced Lohan to 90 days in rehab, but the doctors at UCLA highly recommended she be released early. Lohan will continue outpatient treatment, which is said to be the same as inpatient rehab except you get to go home every night.
The doctors at UCLA Medical Center found that treatment for Lohan was easier than expected. Lindsay was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) by a past doctor and prescribed Adderall. The doctors at UCLA say she does not have this condition. They believe this misdiagnosis may be what unhinged Lindsay in the first place, leading to the reckless behavior she has demonstrated.
A court hearing is scheduled for today, but reports say that Lindsay will not be there. It is assumed that the hearing was scheduled to iron out the details of Lohan’s treatment going forward.
TMZ has reported that Lindsay Lohan’s inpatient rehab bill has come to $40,000 per week. If Lohan had stayed the entire 90 days that Judge Revel has sentenced her to, that would have been a total cost of $520,000.
Now the world will be watching to see if Lindsay Lohan can stay clean and out of trouble.
