Although the jury is still out on what exactly went down between Lindsay Lohan and the Betty Ford Center staffer, addiction specialist Dr. Drew is weighing in on the matter, and thinks that the hard-pAArtying starlet's alleged outburst is somewhat normal for people going through similar experiences to her!
"It's obviously not a good sign for Lindsay that she is having these sorts of outbursts, but it is not unusual. The fact is she is still in treatment, she wasn't discharged from treatment, so it's not as though she was non-compliant with the treatment process. It's more that there was some sort of conflict evolved that was inappropriate. We don't know to what extent the staff was responsible for this. The reality is that staff should never touch patients, ever. Absolutely never. So even if the staff is being touched, they are trained how to manage that, and how to have a show of force with other staff members. It sounds like something broke down in their system as much as anything else. If you watch our Sex Rehab program, we had an excellent staff member that, for whatever reason, touched Carrie Ann, and she was immediately escorted off the grounds, the employee was. It just doesn't sound like Lindsay should be prosecuted. What Lindsay does need is at least one year of treatment, that could include outpatient treatment. I would encourage her to get at least one year."
Makes sense to us!
Obviously, we don't know at this point how much at fault LiLo is, but we agree that Dawn Holland should have known better than to go about the situation the way that she did!
Something about her just seems so shady to us!
