A former patient called Jane P. has given TV show The Insider a run-down of what life is like for Lindsay Lohan inside Utah's Cirque Lodge rehab facility. According to Jane, Lindsay and the other patients are dragged out of bed at 6 am and made to go on a river hike at 6:30, followed by a meditation session and then breakfast at 8. At 8:30, the patients have to clean their rooms thoroughly, which includes scrubbing their own toilets (it's not as if Lindsay's never gotten up-close-and-personal with a toilet). At 9 and 9:30 there are group meetings, which the patients are required to attend lest they lose privileges, including access to snacks. There is some kind of talk at 10 am, which I imagine you are not allowed to sleep through. At 1 and 4 pm there are more mandatory activities, including horseback riding and gardening. Then din-din, then a 12-step program meeting. Patients have an hour of free-time at night, then it's off to bed at 11.
Of course, Lindsay's presence at the facility has caused disruptions. Security measures have been heightened, including closer monitoring of phone calls and suspension of the patients' computer privileges. So now everyone at Cirque Lodge basically hates Lindsay's guts. And this is a good environment in which to get sober? Seems like all that tension would only make Lindsay long for the release of booze and drugs. Anyway, Lindsay won't be there much longer - she's got a court date on August 24. Hopefully, when she gets out, her first run won't be straight to the coke dealer.
