After spending 30 days at Betty Ford Center, Lindsay Lohan has checked out to relocate to Cliffside Malibu, where she will continue receiving treatment. “Lindsay is grateful for the treatment she received at the Betty Ford Center,” her lawyer tells ABC News. “She has completed her course of treatment there and looks forward to continuing her treatment and building on the foundation established at Betty Ford.” But the real reason for her leaving Betty Ford Center is allegedly a "drug outbreak" in the facility that upset the starlet, who was afraid of a relapse. A source tells Fox News that Oxycontin was brought in. In March, Lohan, 26, pleaded no contest to reckless driving and lying to a police officer. She accepted a plea deal of a fine, 30 days of community service, 18 months of psychological counseling, and rehab. Her transfer to Cliffside Malibu was approved by prosecutors, who agreed the star could spend the remainder of her 90-day rehab sentence there. Before she first checked in, Lohan expressed skepticism and implied it was a waste of time. "I don't think I need to be on lockdown for three months. I don't think that's rehab," she told Piers Morgan in an interview. "Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab, it was like a joke, like killing time."
