Lindsay Lohan Might Stay In Rehab Longer Than Expected

Lohan Rehab

Lindsay Lohan might stay in a rehab a little longer than she originally anticipated.

The Mean Girls star was originally ordered to receive treatment for a total of 90 days. However, the folks at Cliffside Malibu believe the actress could require a little extra time at the facility if she truly wants to recover from her problems.

According to Perez Hilton, Lindsay Lohan could end up staying in rehab a bit longer than she initially planned. Of course, it’s still all speculation at this point.

Cliffside CEO Richard Taite explained that certain celebrities who spend quite a bit of time in rehabilitation facilities often suffer become “treatment resistant.” Sometimes this requires a little more work to overcome.

“Celebrities who have been classified as ‘treatment resistant’ have come to believe that they are in every way special, and as such, the rules of life and recovery do not apply to them,” Taite said.

Although Taite’s conversation with the folks at Psychology Today doesn’t mention Lindsay Lohan by name, websites like Radar Online believe he’s specifically talking about Lohan.

The Cliffside Malibu CEO said anyone, including Lindsay Lohan, can become resistant to treatment. However, the condition seems to afflict celebrities more than anyone else.

“It is a belief that you are so special, that you’ll literally kill yourself before you ‘submit’ to the process that it takes to find true recovery. Celebrities are particularly prone to this problem as they are constantly catered to. Their status and ability to earn money for a huge number of people [is] dependent on their ‘specialness,'” Taite explained.

Since the CEO doesn’t come right out and say it’s Lindsay Lohan he’s talking about, it’s unknown if the actress will spend more than 90 days inside the facility. If she’s dedicated to staying clean and getting her life back on the right track, then a little extra time might do her some good.

What do you think about Lindsay Lohan staying in rehab longer than 90 days? Do you believe the actress has become “treatment resistant”?
