<p><span></span>Just hours after <strong>Lindsay Lohan</strong>'s early release from rehab, the actress' father, <strong>Michael Lohan</strong>, is speaking out, saying his daughter was misdiagnosed. "I've been saying this and pointing out that Lindsay was misdiagnosed and should never have been on prescription meds for years," Michael tells <em>Life & Style</em>. "Hopefully, [Lindsay's mother] Dina and the other people around Lindsay will do the right thing and finally get on the same page as me."<br />
Lindsay recently served just 14 days of a 90-day jail sentence and was released more than two months early from a 90-day mandatory rehab stint. "Now that Lindsay is out, God bless her,'' Michael says. "She's been through a lot, and I give her a lot of credit. Speculation about Lindsay's early release from rehab began when it was reported that doctors at UCLA Medical Center believe Lindsay is neither bipolar nor addicted to methamphethamine.
Although her rehab stint is officially finished, a sober coach will shadow Lindsay, Life & Style has learned. "I think someone is going to be staying with her," a friend of Lindsay's tells Life & Style. "It's the same sober coach she used after she was in Promises." Lindsay will undergo "fairly rigorous outpatient," treatment, her civil attorney, Ed McPherson, said in a statement released today. After the actress completed a 45-day stay at Promises in July 2007, her rep announced, "Lindsay has transitioned to an intensive outpatient program, which includes attendance at daily AA meetings, outpatient therapy and daily testing."
Some reports have suggested that Lindsay may have also had a sober coach after she came out of the Wonderland Clinic in February 2007, the same time period when she was filming I Know Who Killed Me. The early release comes at an opportune time for Lindsay, whose new film, Machete, premieres today in LA.
