Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan's parents Dina and Michael have reportedly been advised to attend regular therapy sessions at the Betty Ford Center to help their daughter's recovery.

The 26-year-old had checked into the clinic to honour the court-ordered 90-day stay at the rehab, reported Contactmusic. "Families are encouraged to participate in group therapy. Lindsay's counselors want to get Dina and Michael to Betty Ford for a series of sessions in the next few weeks.

They feel like having her work through her family issues could help Lindsay's recovery," a source said. Though Dina has dismissed the notion and is demanding her ex-husband to pay USD 8,500 in child care support for Lindsay and her siblings.

"Where did you hear that from? News to me! I have a warrant for child support against him. He owes thousands in back child support," Dina said. Michael said he is happy to attend the sessions if it will help the actress battle her addictions and behaviour.

"I'll be there for anything she needs. I will gladly attend, like I've always wanted to. It's the only thing that will give Lindsay resolve and a chance to finally have her life and both parents back in her life. "This is about Lindsay, not Dina or me. Our family needs healing and that's the only way Lindsay is going to beat this," Michael said.
