Lilo hopes to avoid jail by going to rehab.


Even though she has been arrested twicein the last few months and has likely violated her probation, Lindsay Lohan is hoping to avoid any jail time by going to rehab for at least SIX MONTHS, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting!

"Lindsay's manager and agent have been telling her for months that she must go to rehab to save her life. Until now she has resisted, but after her arrest this morning she realizes she needs help," a source close to the troubled starlet exclusively tells .

"It's very likely that Lindsay won't fight the probation violation charges and throw herself at the mercy of the court and hopes to avoid jail time by going to rehab for at least six months."

Lindsay was arrested again early Thursday morning in New York City at the club Avenue after she allegedly sucker punched a woman in the club.

As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, "Lindsay was completely out of control. She was drinking way too much booze and was doing cocaine," a club insider revealed.

With the latest legal trouble, the source said Lindsay could be facing a maximum of 237 days behind bars.

"Because of jail overcrowding in Los Angeles though she would only serve 25 percemt of that time. The City Attorney will ask the judge to max Lindsay out and send her to jail," the source says.


I dont know if radar is a really good source, but they are saying that the girl she hit ask her for a picture, and that she was out of control, and doing cocaine. If this is not a wake up call for her, i dont know what is.

she's one of the many stars out there that makes me think of the idea that heavy drug use (of things like heroin/coke/etc) when you're a teenager actually retards your mental growth and leaves you unable to mature past the point where you first became addicted. Just total lack of maturity to the point where it literally seems like the person CANNOT do it, physically.

I had a friend with substance abuse problems and when he got clean and started going to meetings they said that the age a person starts using is the age their brain stops developing.

Starts using what, though? Heroin? Coke? Alcohol? PCP? Marijuana? Nicotine?

Sounds fishy to me.

I would assume that means once a person becomes heavily immersed in their addiction, of any sort? My mom's ex-boyfriend was a recovering addict and said the same thing about himself (he was a former cracker user).

my family is involved with AA and they say this too
it makes sense tbh
my mom knew a 50 year old woman with a grown daughter who would sneak out of the window at night to go buy crack

i haven't heard that, but i remember Dr. Drew (smh, I know) saying that the age when you're first trapped in the throes of addiction is the age where you're mentally "stuck" until you begin seriously recovering. So if you started on a downward spiral as a teenager - like LiLo probably did - you may be stuck in the emotional mindset of a teenager well into your adult years.

I think it was in reference to Steven Adler, who began using at a very young age and was often stuck in an adolescent mindset.

I dunno how credible Intervention is but one of the guys who runs them basically said this, that the age at which you start using the age where you mentally stop maturing. So like if you start when you're 14 even if you're 30 years old physically, you're still 14 mentally.

I don't feel like looking up legitimate sources, but it's not unreasonable to assume that toxins can affect a developing brain. IIRC, human brains aren't even fully developed until age 25 or something like that. In my personal experience, even something that's relatively harmless like weed, slows people down when used heavily throughout the teen years and early 20s. The person might actually *be* smart, but everything is just firing a touch slower . . . and my uncle had a drug-induced seizure from something he was cooking up when he was around 17 and he's pretty much stuck in that mental state & time period.

I'm sure there is truth in that, but idk. I think it depends. My dad started using as a teen and didn't get clean until his mid thirties - and now he has a good job working for the city, owns five buildings, etc. and he is definitely not at the maturity level of a teenager. I think that it has a lot to do with the person and the person WANTING to be better

this makes complete sense actually.. my stepmother is a "recovering" addict and she literally acts like a teenager. so incredibly immature, selfish , and bratty. i can't stand it

I'm not sure if that's a physiological fact, but plenty of therapists agree that the addict is 'stuck' at the maturity level during which they begin using.

makes a lot of sense

that totally fits, as long as we're talking about users who started before the brain stops developing (ie, late teen years/very early 20s). also, if you're destroying your brain w/ drugs... i'm pretty sure brain cells cannot divide and cannot heal, much like cardiac muscle cells. you're fucked if you screw with your brain.

Eh, I think this is complete bs. I was a teenage addict, got my act together, turned things around easily, and am generally more mature than most others I've met my age. I think it all boils down to the individual's interest in getting their life together.

i agree, this screams shitty anecdotal evidence "my best friends sisters cousin was an addict now shes dumb!!!"
