When you hear the name Lohan, you think celebrity and celebrity rehab in the same instant.  Michael Lohan’s long struggle with substance abuse has been public and painful for himself as well as his family.  It contributed to his stint in prison and helped lead to the dissolution of his marriage.
 
As if to magnify the  havoc addiction can wreak on a family, his daughter Lindsay has followed in her father’s footsteps of addiction to drugs and alcohol. 
 
The talented actress has damaged her promising movie career and her reputation, with many public and embarrassing moments over the years.  Some of this behavior has lead to legal troubles and jail time…..she is presently in court ordered rehab at Cliffside Malibu.
 
Following his 2011 stint on TV as a patient in Dr. Drew Pinsky’s Celebrity Rehab, Michael says he’s done a lot of reflecting.  He realized in his explosive last episode, that a switch of anger had been turned on by the dysfunction of his relationship with his girlfriend Kim.  This lead to an emotional shouting match and confrontation on television…Michael was ultimately jailed for domestic abuse following another argument with Kim after release from Celebrity Rehab. At the time Dr. Drew called his relationship with Kim, “toxic.” See Dr. Drew calls it quits in "Hollywoodite"

Michael says he’s now clean and sober, working with others to promote a way, for not only celebrities to seek treatment for their addictions, but for those in all walks of life.  He is actively working with the Lukens Institute, expanding their services through A.I.R., Aid in Recovery. 
 
Recently Michael met and befriended the “Tan Mom,” Patricia Krentcil and helped her into rehab.  Known for her leathery skin due to her addiction to the tanning booth, Krentcil gained national infamy for supposedly dragging her 5 year old daughter into the booth as well, trying to tint daughter like mother.  She was subsequently arrested for child endangerment and was just recently reported to be in rehab for alcohol addiction.
