Lindsay Lohan checks into rehab at Rancho Mirage facility
The Betty Ford Center is the temporary home of actress Lindsay Lohan, who is expected to remain in a rehab program at the Rancho Mirage facility until her next court date on Oct. 22, it was reported today.
Lohan checked into the treatment center on Monday, according to TMZ.com.
A spokesman for the center did not immediately return requests for comment.
The Betty Ford Center has treated a number of celebrity clients over the years, including Johnny Cash, Mickey Mantle, Darryl Strawberry and Steven Tyler.
On Friday, Lohan was ordered to be jailed by Beverly Hills Superior Court Judge Elden Fox for a month without bail for failing a drug test.
Hours later, another judge allowed her to post $300,000 bail, and she was released pending the Oct. 22 probation violation hearing.
The 24-year-old actress was ordered to wear an alcohol-sniffing SCRAM anklet; to avoid alcohol and stay out of bars; to allow authorities to search her residence without a warrant; and to submit to more random drug tests.
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 missed 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 on Aug. 24.
Since then, she failed at least one drug test, admitting as much in a Twitter posting.
“This was certainly a setback for me, but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences,’ she wrote.“
