"Lindsay Lohan Leaves Jail, Enters Rehab"

The title of this post is the headline of this new ABC News report on the latest LiLo news.  Here are the basics:

After 13 days in jail, Lindsay Lohan is taking her next steps; 12, to be precise. The actress was released from Los Angeles' Lynwood Correctional Facility today at 1:35 a.m. PT after serving 13 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her 2007 probation. Lohan was taken straight into a rehabilitation program, according to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

She will be treated for bipolar disorder and an addiction to amphetamines during her court ordered 90 days in rehab, according to TMZ.com. Lohan's rehab center of choice is a facility operated by the University of California at Los Angeles Hospital System in West Los Angeles, TMZ and Radaronline.com reported.

For Lohan, rehab facilities have almost served as a second home. She first admitted herself to the Wonderland Center in January 2007 and spent 30 days there. After racking up a DUI arrest in May of that year, she checked into the celebrity-friendly Promises Treatment Center for 45 days.

A second DUI arrest in 2007 sent Lohan to Utah's Cirque Lodge Treatment Center, where she famously staged a photo shoot with OK! magazine, which distributed pictures of her practicing yoga on the lawn and riding horseback, presumably sober.

This time around, Lohan was hoping to catch up with her family before locking down in rehab, according to her lawyer. "I'm hoping she will have time to spend with her family before she goes to rehab," Shawn Chapman Holley told reporters Sunday. "She is trying to comply with the court's orders, but she should be able to have 24 hours at home."

Time free was not to be for the 24-year-old starlet [apparently, the judge refused a day of free time before the start of rehab].

UPDATE:  I just saw that MTV here poses the question of the day for LiLo fans, "Lindsay Lohan's Rehab Care Package: What Would You Put Inside?"

It is sad to see such a "talented" media star with what are obviously serious problems but it is doubtful if incarceration is going to do much to help her rehabilitate..

If she refuses rehab, does her mandated 90 day rehab stay translate straight into jail time?
And is it standard practice on court ordered treatment that the offender's mental illness and/or addiction issues be made public or in this instance is because of Ms. Lohan's celebrity?
It appears counter intuitive of the state to order treatment and also make public her treatment/addictions/illnesses. I would think some degree of privacy would further the goal of her treatment.

There is something about women, they like to stand out. If you are looking for an accessory that can make you stand out, then why not go for pearl and leather French designer jewelry? Pearls and leather may sound unconventional but the combination is one of its own kinds.
