Dr. Drew wants to take Lindsay Lohan under his care
HollywoodNews.com: Lindsay Lohan should not be sent to jail, says Dr. Drew Pinsky. Dr. Drew, an American TV personality and addiction medicine specialist, has said that Lindsay would do better in his care than in jail.
The Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew star told RadarOnline.com: “Jail will only harden her. “I have in the past and I even would be willing to go in front of the judge, if Lindsay asked me to, and ask that she be placed in my care to begin a year-long residential treatment, at the minimum.”
He added: “The judge ordered Lindsay to 90 days of treatment, and that just won’t be enough for her sadly.” LiLo, 24, is to go to jail for 90 days for breaching her probation. The “Mean Girls” star is said to have been taking the prescription drug Dilaudid for at least two weeks after having her wisdom teeth taken out.
Dr. Drew added: “Lindsay shouldn’t have been prescribed Dilaudid, except with great caution and the participation of an addiction team. “She is an addict with unstable active disease, and Dilaudid can only make that much worse.”
