Lindsay Lohan a 'Model Patient' in Rehab

COCAINE rap starlet Lindsay Lohan has turned over a new leaf in rehab, it was claimed yesterday.

The Mean Girls actress, 21, checked herself into a Utah drink and drug clinic after a run-in with the law.

She was charged on July 24 with drink driving and possession of cocaine.

Before that she had been wearing an alcohol monitor bracelet on her ankle in a bid to keep her off the booze.

But sources at the Cirque Lodge clinic say Lohan has been a "model patient" - attending AA meetings every day as well as talks with psychiatrists and psychologists.

She has two roommates and washes dishes, cleans toilets and does laundry.

The news flies in the face of inside information from an anonymous former patient at the clinic who gave a series of television interviews.

The woman claimed Lohan got special treatment that had disrupted other addicts.

She said: "It's important for people to work together to show others are going through the same thing.

"However, that was not the case with her. By the time I left she had not attended any group meetings and she supposedly got a private room."

But medics say Lohan has been cooperative and the woman making the allegations was "a problem" who checked out against medical advice.
