(LOS ANGELES) — Michael Lohan, the father of troubled actress Lindsay Lohan, says he wants to break his daughter out of the 90-day rehab stint she’s currently serving at the Betty Ford Center in California.
Mr. Lohan wants Lindsay out of the rehab facility — of which she’s already an alumna — in favor of the Florida-based Lukens Institute, he told RadarOnline.
“I want to meet with Lindsay’s attorney Shawn and the City Attorney to talk about her transferring,” Michael said of his daughter.
“It is ridiculous for Lindsay to spend 90 days at Betty Ford,” he said. “They are a 30-day program place. There is no reason for her to repeat the same program for three months. She’s been to Betty Ford and it isn’t going to help her this time. She needs real help and the only place she can get this is at Lukens.”
There’s no official word about Lindsay going anywhere. In fact, if she leaves the court-mandated program, she reportedly gets fitted for an orange jumpsuit.
Michael himself is no stranger to addiction issues: he has been to rehab several times in his life — most recently in 2012 — for addictions ranging from alcohol to steroid use.
