Report: Lindsay Lohan checks out of rehab

Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan has checked out of a drug and alcohol treatment program in Utah that she entered in August, according to People magazine.

Lohan, 21, left the Cirque Lodge treatment center Friday afternoon, the magazine reported on its Web site, citing statements from her parents.

"I'm proud of her. She's moving ahead with her life," her mother, Dina, told People on Friday. "Things were getting out of control. She took action. She took responsibility. She really needed to heal."

The exclusive center, which promises anonymity to clients, refused Saturday to confirm or deny the report. Calls to Lohan's publicist and attorney were not immediately returned.

Lohan's visit to Cirque Lodge was her third trip to rehab since January, a frenetic year in which she wrecked a Mercedes-Benz, released the box-office flop "I Know Who Killed Me" and was arrested more than once.

In May, Lohan was arrested after crashing her Mercedes-Benz into a tree in Beverly Hills. She was arrested again in July after the mother of Lohan's former personal assistant called 911 to report that her car was being chased by an SUV. The chase ended in Santa Monica, where police arrested Lohan for being behind the wheel.
