Michael Lohan Opening Rehab Center

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanDrugsMichael Lohan


Michael Lohan announced that he’s moving to California to open a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. He has reportedly recruited daughter Lindsay Lohan to help pick the name — she wants to call it “My Home Away From Home.”

We kid! But seriously, why the hell is he so interested in building a rehab center right now? Is he turning a new leaf and becoming a good and charitable human being? Maybe. Is he hoping that a rehab center would be the perfect setting for a new reality TV show? Absolutely Possibly.

Michael says he wants to make the center very holistic and that he will not tolerate prescription drug use.

"I'm going to have a protocol that will be have to be followed. I don't believe in prescription drugs. If people come in on them they're going to have to get off of them, otherwise they'll be looking for another rehab."

He already has investors and therapists lined up and is in the process of “negotiating the location.”

Well, we wish him the best. It’s hard to hate on someone too much for opening a center that will help people. But so help us if he gets a reality TV show about that rehab center!

    He is just wanting people to think that he has good intentions. He isn't really going to open a rehah. He doesn't have any money and who in their right mind will loan him any?

    That is like the blind leading the blind! He has no experience in running a rehab. There is REALITY SHOW written all over this. My guess is that he will secretly tape everyone and use as blackmail later on. Maybe he should get his mess of a life straightened out first before he attempts to help anyone else. I for one will be glad to see his a$$ off Long Island. He cracks me up….preaching god to the world and does not even understand what GOD means. He can repeat what he reads in the bible but can he actually embrace it…NOT.. I especially love when he goes on his GOD tangents then immediately after he stabs someone in the back. Hey Michael God does not even want you!!!!!

    Doochbag drugs.

    There is a difference between 'helping people', and 'exploiting people'. Unfortunately, people with problems are the easiest to exploit. His primary motivation is himself.

    You're just as desperate for a job as he is, P.

    He doesn't believe in prescription drugs?!? Has he become a scientologist???

  8. 8

    Doesnt he own a Bar or something? Or half own one? Or wasnt he trying to open one? Does that even work with a rehad center?

    No prescription drugs? Is he serious? Does he think people with substance abuse problems are automatically free of all diseases? My mom has severe Hashimoto's Disease, and if she went off her meds, she'd die. Period. She doesn't have substance problems, but that's just one example of why his approach is ridiculous.

    this is BS - he's always into something new and none of it comes to pass - when will everyone just stop putting him in the spotlight and let him crawl back into his hole????

    He has reportedly recruited daughter Lindsay Lohan to help pick the name — she wants to call it “My Home Away From Home.” LOL: Have to admit that was funny.

    He doesn't believe in prescription drugs?! Loads of people need them for genuine reasons. Not everyone on meds is an addict. Idiot.

    I'd like to kick him square in the nuts.

    I had someone offer me a business op, buying into a residential rehab. It is a scam. You are just keeping people out of jail. It is not a 'rehab', oh yeah, you have the group meetings, and can do the steps, and you can also exclude anyone from the program you want. It is Private. There was a certain socio/economic clientel. Clean, safe, not to intrusive, great food, perfect bedding, etc…..Just don't go there trying to get clean and sober. Try Betty Ford, they don't treat you like a princess and you work on your sobriety and take care of yourself.

    OMG, what the hell is wrong with people who feel that prescription drugs are wrong or that people who take them are just as bad as illegal drug users. I have had 2 back surgeries and have a heart problem I was born with, without my prescription drugs I would just kill myself… no joke. But I am not some shitty addict like his daughter. I have never made mistakes like breaking the law, kidnapping, etc like his daughter. I am a responsible adult who finds his views reprehensible. What a pig!

    This goes to prove that the whole "rehab" thing is a gigantic crock of "for profit" bullshit. Rehab programs are about 2 things: pushing Christianity on people, and making BIG. HUGE. GIGANTIC $$$$'S. Facts show that people have just as much success staying sober without rehab, or 12 step programs, as they would if they just stopped cold turkey. And holistic only, eh? hrmm I'm hiv+ and a former meth addict.. if I were to enroll in his program, would I not be given my HIV medication? Wow. Just wow.

    The reality of rehab is that alcoholics that are attempting to rehabilitate themselves will require some form of pharmacological therapy (such as diazepam for three to five days) to allay the potential complications from severe withdrawal- these include seizures, delirium, hallucinations and paranoid delusions. Opioid addiction (from 'street' drugs and prescription ones) produces neuroadaptative changes so that the substance abuse consumes the person. I cannot see how a completely holistic approach is possible for something as profound as addiction. Michael Lohan needs to consult with the relevant health professionals, lest his rehab be a bigger joke than his other life ventures.

    Good Lord. Do they let just anybody with a passion for cash open up a medical facility? I put him right up there alongside primal scream therapy and crystals.
    Add all of the restraining orders, criminal record, and presto. Hair-brained soup.
