Washington: One of Lindsay Lohan’s closest confidants has revealed that the actress is ‘in denial’ about being a drug addict and doesn’t realize her substance abuse issues ‘could kill her’.

Lohan is headed back to rehab in the next 48 hours and according to the sources ‘Mean Girls’ star is closely looking at the Betty Ford Clinic in Rancho Mirage, California, which is just outside Palm Springs.

"Lindsay is still in denial about being an addict and doesn`t realize this disease can kill her,” quoted a source as saying.

“She is in denial about the power this disease has over her.”

“Even though she has been to jail twice in recent months, it hasn`t changed Lindsay`s underlying behavior.

“Lindsay is willing to get help, but she doesn`t seem to grasp the severity of her drug addiction," the source added.
