Lindsay Lohan responds to Dr. Drew’s post about her

The first shot was fired a little more than a week ago when Dr. Drew told RadarOnline, “If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested. I would make sure she was not allowed to get out of jail. I would then go to the judge and make sure she was ordered to a minimum of a three year sobriety program.”
At the time, Lohan responded by telling Gossip Cop exclusively: “He’s a quack and a sell-out… Please tell him to stop!”
She went on to deny she’s out of control, stating, “I’m fine.” There was, however, a tremendous reaction to Dr. Drew suggesting he would plant drugs on Lohan – a woman he doesn’t even treat – in order to have her arrested (and ultimately treated).
Today, Dr. Drew took to the Huffington Post to revisit the subject of Lohan. Dr. Drew maintained, “When I was asked as a father, if I were in Michael Lohan’s position, what would I do to help my daughter, I am clear that I would go to any lengths to get her to and retain her in treatment. Bringing legal consequences to bear is often the only alternative.”
He added, “If I was in his position and I knew she was addicted (which I personally do not) and all else had failed, I suspect I would contemplate even this as a last resort.”
“I am not suggesting this as a routine intervention but we frequently enlist law enforcement when we have exhausted other measures,” clarified Dr. Drew, who pointed out that during the first season of “Sober House,” the police had to be called in to take one of its residents, former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler.
Of course, in that instance, no one planted drugs on Adler.
Nevertheless, Dr. Drew reiterated toward the end of his post today, “I do not know Lindsay Lohan but I sincerely wish her the best… I hope one day she returns to her recovery as I believe she will one day thrive, provided that this disease does not first bring some horrible consequences down upon her.”
When Gossip Cop reached out to Lohan for a comment regarding the latest remarks by Dr. Drew, the actress tersely responded, “He’s such a loser… He’s not a real doctor, he’s a celebrity doctor.”
