Lindsay Lohan takes care of her personal health in LA

Lindsay Lohan (hot pictures), 20, has checked into rehabilitation in Los Angeles.

"I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health. I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time," the actress said in a statement issued through her publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick.

Us Weekly reports that Lindsay Lohan entered the posh Wonderland Centre in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon, arriving in a sports utility vehicle and clutching a fruit juice.

Zelnick confirmed to The Associated Press in December that Lohan was attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Lohan then told People magazine she had been going to the meetings for a year.

"I haven't had a drink in seven days. Or anything," she said to the magazine.

"I'm not even legal to, so why would I? I don't drink when I go to clubs. I drink with my friends at home, but there's no need to. I feel better not drinking. It's more fun. I have Red Bull."

The actress, whose screen credits include Mean Girls, Bobby and Freaky Friday, recently had surgery to remove her appendix.
