- Twitter: Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan is not allowed to leave the Betty Ford campus, but the starlet is apparently making progress during her treatment, sources say. Lohan had a rollercoaster ride trying to get into court-ordered rehab and almost dismissed the opportunity given to her by Judge James Dabney.
"It is understood by the Betty Ford Center that your client (Lohan) is to remain on the premises for the duration of her 90-day stay in treatment," a letter addressed to Lohan's attorney Shawn Holley read.
Lohan will still be allowed to walk around the campus, but not step foot off the grounds. Instead, she will be fill her days with a strict schedule of treatment from doctors, nurses, psychologists, a spiritual counselor and a whole host of other experts trained to deal with drug addiction.
"We can't hold a patient against their will; we can't stop a patient from running away. We're not a jail," an intake counselor told People magazine. "But we closely monitor patients via security and technicians 24 hours a day. There is physical exercise and group therapy everyday. This is not a vacation."
It appears as though Lohan is making a concerted effort to finish the program instead of just coasting through. She is described as "adapting to being back at Betty Ford and is very receptive to the care plan that has been created for her," a source told Radar Online.
Lohan completed the detoxification process and has been moved to the dorm area, where she may or may not get a roommate. It's a step in the right direction though, given that last time Lohan was accused of fighting with a staff member. Lohan will have to continue working hard in order to earn privileges, such as the use of her cell phone.
"Her cell phone was confiscated upon admission, but Lindsay will have access to it at some point because patients are given their electronic devices for a short period every day so they can call loved ones. It's very tightly regulated," the source added.
