Lynwood - A celebrity news site is reporting that the fallen starlet will receive treatment for methamphetamine addiction and bipolar disorder after her release from prison.
TMZ quotes sources close to the case as saying that Lohan's "drugs of choice" are methamphetamine and opiates.
According to the New York daily News , the "Mean Girls" star is reported to have been using amphetamine-based prescription drug Adderall along with other prescriptions including the antidepressants Zoloft and trazadone and the powerful opiate-based sedative Dilaudid.
Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, quickly denied the meth charges, Radar online Lindsay is "not a meth addict" and calling reports suggesting she was "a fabrication".
The report that my client, Lindsay Lohan is going to be treated for methamphetamine addiction is categorically false. It's a fabrication, 100%. I have never seen anything that implies that my client has an issue with methamphetamine abuse. Lindsay isn't a meth addict. I have no idea where that came from, but I can tell you, it's false.
The 24 year-old is currently serving a jail sentence for violating the terms of her probation after pleading guilty to multiple drug and drunk-driving charges.
The judge had ruled that the actress had failed to attend weekly alcohol education classes that were imposed as part of the terms of her probation.
As People reported, a sobbing Lohan denied the charges saying she had done all she could to attend the classes.
I did everything I was told to do, I thought I was being compliant, I'm not taking this as a joke, it's my life and career. I don't want you to think I don't respect you and your terms.
On July 20, Lohan was sentenced to 90 days at a Los Angeles county jail, a sentence she is unlikely to serve in full due to overcrowding.
She was also sentenced to 90 days at a rehabilitation clinic where she is likely to be immediately transferred to after the completion of her sentence at the Lynwood Correctional Facility.
Her attorney has asked that the judge allow Lohan a trip home before rehabilitation.
I'm hoping that she'll have some time to spend with her family before she goes to rehab. She's tried to comply with all the court's orders.
Lohan is expected to be released soon, with sources suggesting it would be as early as Monday.
