Making headlines this weekend is the disclose that our collective media whore, Lindsay Lohan desperately wants out at her remanded 90 day stay at Betty Ford clinic on account of the fact doctors at the clinic have decided that she doesn’t need to be taking adderall.
tmz: Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … doctors at the rehab center evaluated Lindsay this week and decided she does NOT need her Addy pills, despite Lindsay’s claims she suffers from ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
We’re told Betty Ford’s doctors almost NEVER give anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because the docs believe there are plenty of substitute meds for ADHD that do the trick without the addictive qualities inherent in the drug. And, we’re told, the doctors are well aware many people — especially Hollywood types — misuse Adderall as a weight-control drug.
Plenty of substitutes true but of course there’s nothing like the added kicker of having your head zooming back and forth to never ever land that the good buzz generally brings on. Something that our hero is staunchly opposed to as she is now told that she must get off the good shit.
It’s unlikely Lilo will be able to get Judge Jim Dabney to sign off on her leaving the facility in the place of another that might let her use the good shit.
Because getting to the roots of your existential ennui sometimes actually means getting off the good shit too…
