We never thought we see the day when Lindsay Lohan was begging to stay in rehab. According to a new report, Lindsay will plead with a judge at her hearing next month to allow her to stay in rehab rather than go back to jail.
Her treatment team thinks Lilo needs to be in rehab this time around for at least forty five days in order to make a difference.
"Lindsay is still being assessed by her treatment team but the team is saying that she should spend at least 45 days getting in-patient treatment. It's going to take her body at least 30 days to get the substances out of her system,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“Her body needs to do a lot of healing, and the doctors want to treat her after the remnants of the drug use have left her body. The real work begins after that has occurred, and that is when progress begins to happen."
The October 22 hearing will occur right in the middle of Lindsay’s treatment. "Lindsay is required to be at the hearing. She will be there. She will be escorted by at least one person from the rehab facility to make sure she doesn't stray. It's likely that a member of Lindsay's treatment team will also be called to testify. At that point, if Lindsay is making improvements, Lindsay's team would ask Judge
Fox to not put her in jail at all, or defer her sentence until she is finished with her in-patient treatment," the source added.
For once we agree with the fact that she shouldn’t go to jail. Lindsay needs to stay in rehab for a very very very long time. And 45 days should just be the tip of the iceberg.
