After serving 13 days of her potential three-month sentence, Lindsay Lohan was set free from the confines of the Century Regional Detention Facility in Los Angeles early Monday morning (August 2). The 24-year-old actress and singer was taken directly to an unnamed, court-ordered rehab facility directly thereafter, where she will have to spend 90 days (and it seems highly unlikely that she will have any time chopped off the end of that particular sentence). The initial plan was to send Lohan to Morningside Recovery, though there were concerns that it would not be secure or secretive enough to take care of Lohan's recovery.
In her just-under-two-weeks of incarceration, Lohan was mostly kept away from other inmates for the sake of her safety. She also reportedly cried a lot and ate a lot of Twizzlers. Though her rehab stint is mandated by the court and a part of her sentence, she'll have a lot more freedom than she did inside her cell at Century Regional. She'll even get to receive care packages, which is why we've put together this list of stuff she may need while she's getting healthy.
It was reported that Lohan became attached to eating Twizzlers while she was behind bars, but she should really upgrade to Red Vines (often called "Executive Twizzlers" by people currently writing this blog post). And since they're easily sharable, they could make an excellent icebreaker while trying to meet new people in group session.
A Case of Dr. Pepper
Often people in rehab are coached to replace their more self-destructive addictions (like hard drugs) with more socially-acceptable (and legal) ones (like nicotine or sugar). A nice can of soda pop can curb a jones, and even though Diet Dr. Pepper tastes just like regular Dr. Pepper, she should treat herself to those extra calories. She's earned'em.
A Bootleg Copy of "Salt"
The Angelia Jolie action flick came out only a few days after Lohan entered jail, so she missed out on an adrenaline-pumping series of shootouts, chases, twists and turns. She'll need to kill time, and what better way to do that then a Jolie-lead piece of badassery?
A Flip Video MinoHD
A number of Internet media sites will be desperate for footage of Lohan while she is trying to detox. Why not film a few clips herself and sell them (anonymously, of course) to whoever is bidding? While it may violate the spirit of her rehab (and may very well be illegal), it would also be an empowering thing for Lindsay. After all, when was the last time she controlled the flow of information about her in public?
The Complete "Gilmore Girls" On DVD
It's just a good show.
A Dozen Crystals
At the suggestion of Spencer Pratt. On second thought, maybe he's not the best role model for Ms. Lohan.
