Michael Lohan will open a rehab center in California, as reported at Us Magazine. The 50-year-old father, divorced from Dina Lohan and estranged from his daughter Lindsay Lohan, along with the rest of his children, says he’s been called by God to open the center.
Is Michael Lohan’s rehab center a good idea?
Lindsay Lohan is known for her drug and alcohol abuse, but so is Michael Lohan. When it comes to reputation, Michael Lohan’s is not exactly stellar. Says former child star Danny Bonaduce on Michael Lohan and Dina Lohan, “I don’t believe that either of those parents see a child when they look at their daughter. I think they see a big bag of money.”
Earlier this year, Kate Major, who was engaged to be married to Michael Lohan, claimed Michael Lohan assaulted her. Lohan was charged with second degree harassment and was given a restraining order. However, both charges were later dropped and the two separated.
If you have a checkered past, but you later help others in life, that’s certainly respectable. However, your past truly needs to be in the past. Michael Lohan is an ex-con and a former substance abuser, but is his current life reputable enough?
Michael Lohan’s rehab center will not employ doctors
Michael Lohan says a hospital will be associated with his rehab center, but he will not employ doctors. “We are a rehab that focuses on mind, body and soul. It is a spiritual retreat,” says Lohan. “The basis of the rehab will be that there is a God; that good conquers evil; that the best way to live is to treat others like you want to be treated; and treat your body like a temple.”
A “spiritual retreat” can be a good thing if you hire the right people. For example, Lohan claims that Jon Koga, of the Koga Fitness Center, is already on board. With the right names associated with Michael Lohan’s rehab center, the focus could shift away from Michael Lohan, and that may be a good thing.
