Lindsay Lohan is currently in rehab at the Betty Ford Center in Southern California.

According to People, Lohan plans to stay at the facility, located in the upscale city of Rancho Mirage (near Palm Springs), until her October 22 hearing where she’ll face the judge for violating conditions of her probation by testing positive for at least one drug test earlier this month.

She was thrown in jail last week by L.A. Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox, who denied her bail at her last court hearing on September 24. Hours later, she was released on $300,000 bail, after Judge Patricia M. Schnegg overturned Fox’s decision on appeal.

According to the source, Lohan’s rehab stay could affect any sentence Judge Fox chooses to impose for the probation violation, "out of recognition that she really needs the help from professionals and great medical care to help rebuild her life."

The Betty Ford Center was founded by former First Lady Betty Ford and Leonard Firestone in 1982. The facility has treated a host of celebrity clients, including Keith Urban and Steven Tyler.

According to Access Hollywood, furthermore, on Thursday, Michael Lohan issued a statement, explaining he was not a fan of the facility, based on his own experience.

"Now that word is out. Look at the ‘short’ list of people who went to Betty Ford. Most if not all relapsed. I went there myself and I will TELL you. Betty Ford is a Country Club. They administer prescription meds, and even put their patients on prescription meds. Once more, they DON’T have family therapy AT ALL. Conflict resolution and family therapy are a key component in recovery! Her turmoil and the root of her problems are her family. This will not work! Mark my words! It is however, comforting to know Lindsay is in a safe place and away from her enablers. Unfortunately, if BF gives her any prescription drugs, they become another enabler. Back to square one!"
