Friends of Lindsay Lohan are so worried about her excessive partying they are urging her to return to a rehab facility for a fourth time
Lindsay Lohan's friends are urging her to go to rehab.
The actress' pals are reportedly concerned after the 23-year-old actress spent two nights in a row partying until 6am, and are telling her she needs to go back to a treatment facility.
A source said: "We are growing increasingly worried about Lindsay. She needs to go back to rehab, everyone that is close to her is urging her to get help.
"The biggest problem is that Lindsay refuses to admit she has a problem, and she doesn't believe she needs to go back to rehab. Essentially, there is nothing anyone can do as Lindsay can't be forced to go to rehab, even though it's exactly what she needs."
Lindsay's mother Dina is now said to be "very concerned" about her antics, and is growing increasingly frustrated at her ex-husband Michael - who recently got engaged - for exposing details of the 'Mean Girls' star's problems.
The source added to RadarOnline.com: "Dina is very concerned about her, not only is she Lindsay's mother, but her manager as well. Dina is fiercely protective of Lindsay and her other children.
"The situation is only made worse because Michael insists on making this public, when it's truly a private family matter. Lindsay doesn't trust her father at all, he has betrayed her so many times."
Friends are also said to be worried she will ignore them if they attempt to push her into rehab.
The source said: "Lindsay simply tunes out any talk of seeking help, at this point. She has been known to freeze people out of her life if she doesn't like what they are telling her, and that is what she is doing now."
Lindsay has been to rehab three times to be treated for alcohol and drug abuse and earlier this year admitted she feared her substance use would kill her.
The 23-year-old actress confessed she used alcohol and substances to ease the pain of her personal problems, saying: "I tried to mask my problems with alcohol, cocaine, and mind-altering substances. Now I'm in a place where I don't need to use anything and I feel emotions because I choose to. I've made some dreadful mistakes but learned from them - that has probably saved my life."
