The treatment facility Lindsay Lohan is currently at has NO LICENSE to provide rehab treatment because its license was REVOKED ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay has entered Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach ... even though prosecutors never signed off on the facility. The judge is giving prosecutors a week to investigate the facility, and here's the first thing they'll find.
We've learned in 2012 Morningside's license was suspended for being careless with prescription drugs and operating beyond the scope of its license. After a full hearing in May, 2012, the California Dept. of Alcohol and Drug Programs REVOKED Morningside's license outright.
We spoke with Millicent Tidwell, the Deputy Director of Licensing and Certificates at the Department, and she told us "Morningside cannot give any treatment."
Tidwell tells us the only thing Morningside can do without a license is provide a sober living environment, but NO TREATMENT.
We've learned one reason Morningside's license was revoked is because a 20-year-old patient suffering from bulimia and alcohol addiction died at the facility. According to official docs, the facility was not licensed to treat people with eating disorders. According to the family's lawsuit against Morningside, the man had a low electrolyte count and the facility should have transferred him to a hospital but didn't. The man died from cardiac arrest at Morningside while doing push-ups. (ty, ljubavirakija!)
