Lohan checks into rehabilitation clinic

As of 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Lindsay Lohan has entered an exclusive rehabilitation center in West Hollywood.

“I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health. I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time,” said the 20-year-old actress in a statement issued through her publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick.

Zelnick did not make any announcement on the reason Lohan was being treated but she did confirm to the Associated Press in December that the starlet was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Also, during the month of December, Lohan told People Magazine she had been going to the meetings for more than a year.

“I haven’t had a drink in seven days. Or anything,” she said to People. “I’m not even legal to, so why would I? I don’t drink when I go to clubs. I drink with my friends at home, but there’s no need to. I feel better not drinking. It’s more fun. I have Red Bull.”

According to the “New York Post’s” Page Six column Lohan checked herself into the Wonderland center after an all-night drinking binge following the Golden Globes ceremonies held on Monday.

Page Six reported that even though Lohan did not attend the ceremony she did manage to make the after parties, where witnesses claim she partied until 6 a.m. Tuesday morning and was found passed out in a hotel hallway.

“US Weekly” magazine reported on its website that the Wonderland Center is a “residential treatment and detoxification facility providing services for alcohol, substance abuse and relapse-prevention programs.”

“We provide first-class food service and accommodations, secure and gated on a private estate. The center has two swimming pools and three acres of sitting and walking areas,” the Web site says.

The actress, screen credits include “Bobby,” “The Parent Trap,” “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Mean Girls.”
