LiLo goes to rehab, but trouble follows

LiLo goes to rehab, but trouble follows

Lindsay Lohan just can't catch a break.

The troubled actress finally checked into a rehab facility Thursday morning to comply with her court-ordered drug rehab sentence, but the facility is unlicensed by the state.

According to a California state official, the Morningside Recovery center in Newport Beach -- where Lohan made a last-minute decision to complete her 90-day stint -- is not licensed to provide residential alcohol and drug abuse treatment.

"If a 24-hour residential facility is providing treatment or services to promote the recovery of alcohol and drug abuse then they must possess a license," Millicent Tidwell, deputy director for the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, told HLN.

Though Morningside has several locations throughout California, Tidwell says none of the centers have licenses. The company previously had three licenses, but all were revoked.

Tidwell added that the licensing agency is locked in litigation with the Newport Beach facility where Lohan is staying.
