Lindsay Lohan has checked into a rehab and will not face a probation violation for leaving another treatment facility after a few minutes.

Santa Monica chief deputy city attorney Terry White has received confirmation Lohan has checked into a rehab facility and is satisfied with her location.

A source close to the actress said she has checked in to the Betty Ford Centre in Rancho Mirage, California.

The Liz & Dick star (below) is required to spend 90 days in rehab as part of a plea deal in a misdemeanour case filed after a June car accident.

Lohan has also rehired long-time lawyer Shawn Holley to handle her case.

Lohan's sentence called for her to spend three months at a lockdown rehab facility and also receive 18 months of psychotherapy to avoid a return to jail.

She pleaded no contest in March to lying to police and reckless driving.

Lohan has spent time at Betty Ford before. She served another mandatory rehab sentence there, although her stay there was not without drama. Lohan (26) got into an altercation with a rehab worker and within weeks of her release was charged with taking a necklace from a Los Angeles jewellery store.
