Lindsay Lohan Released From Rehab After 22 Days

Lindsay Lohan (photosLindsay Lohan photos) has left rehab after just 22 days of treatment.

The 24-year-old, who was checked into UCLA Medical Center on August 2 after serving 13 days behind bars, was originally sentenced to be a 90-day stint in the facility for violating probation in her DUI case.

The actress was quietly escorted out of the facility's back door into a waiting limousine.

She was released early because doctors "have already concluded her psychiatric problems are not nearly as severe as first thought. In addition, the doctors do not believe the drug dependency issues are as severe."

If she was suffering from a "dual diagnosis" as first thought, i.e. a mental disorder and a substance abuse problem, then more intensive treatment would have been necessary.

Lindsay Lohan's attorney is due in court Wednesday to discuss the next steps after her release from rehab. Lindsay is not required to attend the hearing.

The hearing will be the first time Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox will weigh in on the star's probation violation sentence. Fox replaced Judge Marsha Revel on the bench after she quit the case amid allegations of impropriety, specifically meeting with defense attorneys and calling rehabilitation programs without notifying the prosecutor.

Earlier this month, Dina Lohan, Lindsay's mother, said in an interview that her daughter would move to New York after her release from rehab.
