Michael Lohan being treated for steroid abuse
Lindsey Lohan’s dad has a lot of problems.  Ad steroid abuse to the long list! Don

He has previously admitted to taking cocaine and has been treated for alcoholism.

And now it has been reported that Michael Lohan is getting help for steroid abuse and co-dependency issues.

According to Radar Online, the 51-year-old father of Lindsay Lohan is enrolled in an outpatient programme and currently living in a halfway house near to the facility where he is receiving treatment.

Troubled family: Michael and his estranged movie star daughter Lindsay have both been in and out of rehab

He is allegedly being treated at the Palm Partners Recovery Center, which has advertised its services on TV show Celebrity Rehab, which Michael has appeared on.

And according to the website, Michael is hoping to help others follow suit and get treatment for their issues - and even crossing his fingers he can make a career of it.

A source told the website: 'When Michael is released on March 16 he will be doing interventions himself. He is in negotiations to launch a new radio show with Jeremy Loper, formerly of the radio show The Buzz in Palm Beach, Florida.

'The show will address all kinds of issues from sex, addictions, clearing up gossip and various real life situations. Sounds like a new Love Line.'

It would certainly be a more lucrative career move for the former Wall Street Trader, who reportedly recently applied for a job at Burger King.

According to TMZ, counsellors at the Palm Partners facility have recommended the troubled father of four work at the fast food joint to pass his idle time.

Michael's burger-flipping career venture is apparently only meant as a crutch to ease him back into society, and as part of his plea deal in the domestic violence case involving his ex- fiancée Kate Major.

The former Star magazine reporter, who is currently doing a 90-day stint at a clinic in Boca Raton, Florida for alcohol abuse, said that Michael went crazy after she refused to perform oral sex on him last October.

The police report stated that the ‘defendant again pushed her multiple times and squeezed her arms. She suffered minor bruising and complained of shoulder pains. 

'She said the defendant told her he would slit both his wrist and her wrist. He also threatened to throw her off the balcony (4th floor). She said the defendant threw the remote control at her but missed.’

He pleaded no contest and avoided jail time.

Lohan is estranged from his movie star daughter Lindsay, and the 25-year-old requested a restraining order against him in 2009.
