Lindsay is going to request that she spend a full 45 days in rehab, claiming that it will take a full 30 days for any drugs to leave her system. Do you believe she really wants to get well?

Lindsay Lohan has 23 days until her Oct. 22 court date to prove that she’s actually trying to get well by checking herself into an Orange County rehab facility, but are her reasons completely pure?

“Lindsay is still being assessed by her treatment team but the team is saying that she should spend at least 45 days getting in-patient treatment. It’s going to take her body at least 30 days to get the substances out of her system,” a source told RadarOnline, adding, “Her body needs to do a lot of healing, and the doctors want to treat her after the remnants of the drug use have left her body. The real work begins after that has occurred, and that is when progress begins to happen.”

The Oct. 22 court date would fall right in the middle of the 24-year-old starlet‘s court date, and she’s expected to be there. “Lindsay is required to be at the hearing. She will be there. She will be escorted by at least one person from the rehab facility to make sure she doesn’t stray. It’s likely that a member of Lindsay’s treatment team will also be called to testify. At that point, if Lindsay is making improvements, Lindsay’s team would ask Judge Fox to not put her in jail at all, or defer her sentence until she is finished with her in-patient treatment,” the source added.

However, this insider also claims that another stint in jail doesn’t bother la Lohan — which is completely unbelievable. “The fact is jail doesn’t scare Lindsay. Before she did her time earlier this summer, she was petrified. Having spent time behind bars, it doesn’t have that effect on her. Jail isn’t a deterrent for her, period,” the insider said.

Why else would Lindsay, who failed another two drug tests just weeks after getting out for good behavior, immediately check herself into rehab? She doesn’t want to get well — she’s a mess! It sounds like Lindsay is just trying to avoid jail time because let’s face it — although rehab is no walk in the park, it’s a heck of a site better than prison bars, a cot and an orange jumpsuit!
