Momager Dina Lohan says her troubled actress daughter is in an “amazing place” at the Betty Ford Center, where she has been ordered by an LA court to undergo rehab for her wild child obsessions with drugs, cigarettes and alcohol.
“Happy. Relaxed,” Dina said when asked by the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer how Lindsay is doing.
“The Betty Ford Center is just an amazing place,” she added, calling it “life-changing” for Lindsay.
“She’s been in a couple of facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her. They get into your psyche and bring the problem to the surface,” said Dina, nothing that she herself spent two weeks there in family sessions.
Hummm… does that mean Dina is finally acknowledging that she is part of the problem?
“We’ll take it one day at a time,” said Dina. “I don’t have a crystal ball.
“I pray hard and she wants to start her own facilities, help other children. She’s so public, we can only be positive and look to the future to help other families.”
Lohan is rehab although living as an outpatient “in a home,” said her mom – until Jan. 3.
She has no plans to leave early. “Lindsay wants to stay,” said Dina.
“She’s learning the trigger points and why she turns to something – drugs or addiciton.”
