The saga surrounding Lindsay Lohan continues, as reports indicate that the troubled starlet wants to be able to take her Adderall medication with her while she completes her latest rehab stint.

Adderall is a medication prescribed to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Lohan received a prescription for the drug in 2010.

Lohan was recently sentenced to 90 days in a "locked down" rehabilitation facility after pleading no contest to reckless driving and lying to police following a June 2012 car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway. Lohan must also complete community service and psychotherapy sessions as part of her sentencing.

The issue of drug abuse has surrounded Lohan for years and was even previously discussed by her father, who felt she was being over-prescribed prescription drugs.

"[I]t's toxic … When I left [rehab facility] Cirque Lodge [in October 2007], I thought she was in a good place, but she left with a bucket of medication. I was disgusted," Michael Lohan told Us Weekly

While the issue of prescription medication continues, Lohan's lawyer is arguing that his client does not need to go to rehab and is working out her personal issues responsibly.

"She does not need rehab," Lohan's lawyer, Mark Heller, told CNN. "Lindsay doesn't have a problem with alcohol and drugs. Lindsay has other types of issues that are being dealt with."

But Heller did promise the judge presiding over her case that he would find a rehab facility that would hold Lohan for a 90-day period. Unfortunately, no rehab centers offer an option to hold patients against their will, outside of one connected to a federal prison. Only inmates charged with a felony can serve rehab in such a facility,

"There is no rehab that will hold you against your will, unless they feel the person is a suicide risk, and in that case they can hold the individual for 72 hours," Dr. Drew recently told TMZ.
