A Peek into Lohan’s Costly Third Rehab Stint

Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan’s third rehab stint is costing her a whopping 15,000 pounds a month fee.

The ‘Mean Girls’ star has checked into the Cirque Lodge clinic in Utah, which calls itself America's most ‘exclusive’ drug rehab centre, for an intensive one-month rehabilitation programme following her second DUI arrest in Santa Monica on July 24.

However, a family source said that like the previous two facilities, the current rehab centre is also more like a resort than a clinic.

“Of course, I am pleased she is seeking help," the Daily Mail quoted the relative as saying.

“But I don't think this is any more what Lindsay needs than the last two places she chose. They were more like resorts than rehabs and I am afraid from what I have read about Cirque Lodge it is really more of the same. Residents are offered sports like hiking and riding.

“I would prefer Lindsay to be in constant, constant therapy, rather than doing chores that are not relevant to her addiction problems,” the relative added.

At first, rehab inmates are given a haircut, manicure and pedicure. The facility has fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs in all rooms, sauna and a gym.

They can also enjoy movies being screen on big televisions in a huge media room.

The facility’s founder, Richard Losee, said that the rehab provides enough chances for all residents to turn sober and it is up to them to kick their addiction.

“I don't care where it happens, I just want it to happen. We don't fix anybody. All we do is provide tools and opportunities they need to stay sober. I'm more passionate about this business than anything else I've been involved in,” Losee said.
