And here is why she was freaking out when the doctors decided that she did not in fact suffer from ADHD and took her bennies away. I cannot wait to see the hot mess that comes walking out of Betty Ford when this is over.
A source told RadarOnline: ‘Lindsay has been extremely emotional this past week and is finding comfort in food. Lindsay can’t stop eating, and has gained five pounds because she has such poor eating habits.
‘She has been exercising, but she just doesn’t have a lot of energy because she is no longer taking Adderall, which is a psycho-stimulant medication that contains amphetamine. She has been talking to a nutritionist at Betty Ford about eating healthier.’
Betty Ford’s doctors rarely prescribe anyone over the age of 15 the powerful drug, because they believe there are plenty of alternative treatments and also think that many people misuse the drug to control their weight.
Lindsay has been assigned a full team of carers – including a psychologist, dietician, chemical dependency technician and physician – who have devised a tailored care plan for her. The troubled starlet was previously said to have freaked out and ditched her original plan to enter the Seafield Centre in New York for treatment because it doesn’t allow its patients to smoke.
