Lindsay Lohan Checks Into Rehab Center — But Is It Unlicensed?
One day down, only 89 to go!
Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab on May 2, although concerns persist about her choice of rehab facility.
Linds opted to enter Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach, CA, even though it was not approved ahead of time by prosecutors.
The judge could have given Lindsay jail time for not attending an approved facility, but the judge was leniant and is giving prosecutors a week to okay the place.
Sources say that reason why Lindsay chose Morningside and not the approved choice was that Morningside would let her smoke cigarettes during her recovery.
However, TMZ is now reporting that Morningside does not have a license to provide treatment, as its license was revoked in 2012 for being careless with prescription drugs. Yikes.
Authorities say that the center can't legally provide treatment and can instead only provide a sober living space. Hmmm. We think Lindsay might need something a bit more serious than that.
Lindsay is certainly not without practice when it comes to choosing rehab centers, as she has had five previous stints in rehab.
Let's hope Lindsay gets the help she needs.
