Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney said that ‘Lindsay Lohan must continue therapy until late next year’ on Wednesday. After her 90-day court-ordered stay in a rehabilitation facility, the judge still requested for the actress to receive therapy. The next court date is scheduled for November 2014.
The judge also said to ‘meet a therapist at least three times a week until November 2014’. This was followed by treatment recommendation from Cliffside Malibu Rehabilitation Center CEO Richard Taite.
“Our entire clinical team is in unanimous agreement that if these sessions are not required by the court and attendance verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a setup for almost certain failure,” Taite said in a statement.
The ‘Mean Girl’ actress is to have 18 months of therapy. However, if she is traveling, she can receive the therapy via videoconference, according to the judge.
The 27-year-old had been filed with different charges including theft of a necklace and lying to police officials regarding a car incident in June 2012. The event took place on the Pacific Coast Highway where her sports car slammed into a dump truck.
After months of stay at the Cliffside facility, Taite praised Lohan’s continuous progress. The center’s CEO said, “We couldn’t be happier with the progress Ms. Lohan has made in building a solid foundation from which to continue the excellent work she has begun here at Cliffside Malibu.”
“The Canyons”, the actress’ recent film will be shown on limited theatres in Los Angeles and New York this month. She’s also up for an eight-part documentary series on OWN. The series will be featuring her life as she continues being sober. Also, she will have an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
