Well good luck with that!
Considering she's been hopping around from rehab to rehab, we have a hard time believing anyone will get Lindsay Lohan to stay put let alone for longer than her court-ordered 90 days.
But from what we hear, it sounds like Cliffside Malibu wants LiLo to put in some extra time in order to truly recover.
The CEO of Cliffside, Richard Taite, recently gave an interview - not about Lindsay - where he spoke about celebrities and rehab, and what he said was very inneresting when you think about our troubled redheaded rehab repeater.
"The celebrities that so many people ask about, the ones who go to rehab after rehab without getting better, often have ["treatment resistant"] addiction … Celebrities who have been classified as ‘treatment resistant’ have come to believe that they are in every way special, and as such, the rules of life and recovery do not apply to them."
Hmmm, sound like someone we know??
And in the case of LiLo, getting her to stay might be harder than usual considering another little tidbit he revealed about this type of patient:
"To recover from addiction, the addict must open up to caring professionals. These people often need longer stints in treatment than the average — something their dependents and entourages are not keen on, because the stay in rehab means no money coming in for those who live off another’s fame."
Uh, yes, this is all feeling very familiar.
At the very least, we know LiLo will have to stay put at this location for the duration of her sentence. But from the sound of it, she doesn't want to stay any longer than necessary!
Let's just hope the rehab finally gets through to her!
