EXCLUSIVE! Experts Say UCLA Doctors Are Wrong! Lindsay Lohan Is An Addict & She Needs To Stay In Rehab!

Lindsay’s doctors say that the root of her problems are a misdiagnosis of the drug Adderall..but two experts tell HollywoodLife.com they think that’s ridiculous!

Dr. Gregory Smith, creator of Comprehensive Pain Relief Group in Redondo Beach, Calif., calls the latest developments in Lindsay’s case “ridiculous” and explains why the Mean Girls starlet is — contrary to all reports — indeed an addict and should NOT be released from her UCLA rehab facility 60 days early.

“One of the tell-tale signs you can see in addicts is if they are continuing to do drugs and alcohol in the face of catastrophic problems…and she’s done that,” Dr. Smith tells us, citing the many times Lindsay was expected in court or on set, but failed to meet expectations because she was out partying. “During major problems in her life she STILL chose to do these substances.”

Los Angeles-based addiction expert Marty Brenner agrees that Lindsay has exhibited the behavior of an addict for years, and there’s no way it can be blamed completely on an Adderall ‘addiction.’

“If you walk like a duck, look like a duck and act like a duck, you’re a duck,” Brenner — who’s worked with the Lohan family in the past — tells HollywoodLife.com. “She’s in denial she has a problem, but all her actions and problems are going to get her into trouble again.”

Adds Dr. Smith, “The fact that she’s been detoxed is a good thing, but it doesn’t solve her other problems. She’s going to have another problem — it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN.”

Brenner’s biggest concern with letting Lindsay out of rehab at the end of August is that she’ll be free to revisit her favorite haunts…and old habits habits.

“Staying up late, doing the things she did, it’s not going to just stop,” Brenner says. “Now she has a prescription to really play. Lindsay needs to be in intense therapy for her behavior…she needs to accept responsibility for her problems.”

It is always a good idea to meet the patient before diagnosis, and then it is ILLEGAL to talk it about it to the media.

I also agree that Lindsay has an addictive personality and is ‘all or nothing’ in her actions. It’s gonna be a problem for her all over again when she gets out :(

So doctors who have talked and evaluated Lindsay are wrong but a doctor who has never met knows everything about her? I don’t understand why people are so sure Lindsay is on drugs. I don’t think partying and showing up late automatically means drugs. A lot of celebrities think high of themselves and are rude, late, etc without drugs.

It’s no secret Lindsay does coke…as early as when she was recently in France for Cannes…there are photos. I also believe she is an addict. I can only hope that with all of the drugs (street and prescription) out of her system, she knows how good it feels to be healthy again and will make sound choices. I believe her meds affected her judgment, or lack thereof and then her partying spun out of control. It doesn’t help that her own mother still defended her when she was acting crazy instead of holding her accountable. Her mom needs to separate herself from the business and be a mom. Lind’s need to find other management and keep the business with the professionals who will be straight forward and honest with her. Lastly, does her mom consult with a PR firm? She needs to!! Her interviews make her look worse and worse.

These “experts” haven’t even treater her, and obviously..like the Rest of the planet..get all their “information” from gossip mags. I do think Lindsey has MAJOR issues, but maybe the DOCTORS are right when they say they aren’t drugs?..you know, cause they are trained to know and treat that kind of thing…

Thank God there are a few sane people here who get that she has problems! This girl is an addict!! She’s out of control and no one should listen to the people who are actually treating her!!! We should be listening to the pain specialist and the anger managment guy!!!!

This is what I know about Lindsay from her own mouth and from TV interviews/programs about her. The fact that she is a hoarder and sleeps on the floor on a mattress, her home crammed with boxes of shoes, clothing, odds-and-ends and other items she does not need, clearly defines her as someone with emotional issues. Hoarding is not something your average friend or neighbor does. Not to that extent. I believe she has an ADDICTIVE PERSONALITY. That meaning she is not capable of taking baby steps. It is all or nothing. Instead of staying home and entertaining friends, she is out all night in clubs drinking. Her relationships are so toxic that significant others in their lives forbid their child to see her or be cut off from family money. You cannot say her behavior stems from the fact her father has been in jail and her mother lives in a fantasy world. You are supposed to separate yourself from your parents at some age and live and work on your own. She has not done this. Mom is always there to clean up her mess. I have a feeling that in the weeks to come, world events and national events are going to be such that columns about Lindsay Lohan won’t be discussed. This is trival stuff, y’all. Some hard rain is gonna fall soon and we may not even have the Internet to surf. If she gets out or doesn’t get out it is no concern of ours. She does not pay our rent or sign our paycheck. Go to amazon.com and order a new book. Something interesting. This Lindsanity as Perez calls her, is just boring beyond belief. Now if we could send Britney, Lindsay, Paris et al to Mars we could concentrate on truly talented and creative young people with a positive message.

c’mon now. no need to pick on britney. she was clearly sick, and is being taken care of and seems healthy now. but, i’ll agree with you re paris. and, as for lindsay, i haven’t given up on her yet even though this situation makes me mad. so, let’s not ship her off with paris just yet.

I hope the judge listens to these two people and not the doctors who are treating her.

I used to think she was an addict but now I think she’s just go psychiatric issues from her effed up family and fame.

And the Adderall – Thats the Rachel Zoe trick. legal speed to stay thin. Used to be DEX but then Adderall came along. Keeps you thin, keeps you energetic and hollywood values those things.

i think i’m with you. i’m sort of baffled by her. i am not CONVINCED she is an addict, but i am convinced that she’s seriously f’ed up and needs help to deal with whatever it is that keeps her from reaching success. she was in the right places, has talent, was on her way up- and now she’s just acting like an irresponsible brat that can’t pull herself together because “the world is picking on” her… i don’t understand anything other than she has some sort of problem.

Of course she’s an addict. But reading comments here, she’s obviously not the only one in denial.

Come on Lindsay , tell them about being “disconnected” .
You know that explains very well the contradictions without linking it to drugs.
To be “disconnected” is a major problen Lindsay recognized .
It is a lack of relation between her will and her deeper desires, entering in contradiction.
Probably a represion of her own desires in her hard childhood and being later alienated by Dina & others.

lindsay has not once accepted responsibility for ANY of her destructive behavior. ever. i don’t know if that alone makes her an addict, but it sure sounds like quacking to me.

She has acepted responsibility many times.
The last is this sentence: she could have apealled it but refused to do it and accepted it.

i must’ve missed the ‘many times’ where she accepted responsibility for things such as the drugs in her pockets (she denied they were her pants- which was shown to be a lie); driving like a maniac chasing people while she was intoxicated (she’s still fighting responsibility for that in a civil court battle); et cetera. also, there isn’t a lawyer worth his/her weight in salt that would have appealed lindsay’s incarceration for her multiple and repeated probation violations. she didn’t really “choose” not to appeal, she just couldn’t figure out a way to do it. both she and her mother repeatedly say that she is being treated unfairly- that is a far cry from owning your crime and doing the punishment. she was refusing to do the punishment in the first place (going to alcohol education classes over a lengthy period of time), that is what put her in jail this most recent time. when other celebs get busted, they quickly take care of their punishment and put it behind them- the responsible ones at least.
