A Little More Personal (Raw)
Lindsay Lohan is serving a 90 day court ordered treatment at the UCLA drug rehab.  Not only have new reports said that Lindsay Lohan may get an early release, but TMZ reports that Lindsay may have been misdiagnosed.   Judge Marsha Revel had ordered Lindsay to the facility last month.  Judge Revel has since left Lindsay’s case.  Lindsay’s new judge, Judge Elden Fox, has received a recommendation from UCLA that Lindsay be released early.  It is possible that Lindsay will spend approximately 30 days in the facility then perform the rest of her treatment as an outpatient.

Dilaudid
Ambien
Adderall,
Zoloft

There is no word of when Lindsay may possibly be released.
