    From one rehab to the next...

    E! News confirms Lindsay Lohan has left Betty Ford Rehabilitation Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. and transferred to Cliffside Malibu. 

    "She wanted a change," a source tells E! News of her unexpected rehab move. 

    The LiLo insider believes the actress' lawyer Shawn Holley chose Cliffside and that prosecutors, as well as Judge James Dabney, signed off on the transfer.

    The source adds it's unlikely Lindsay will be able to use her ADD drug Adderall at the new treatment center. She is expected to remain at Cliffside until she completes her 90-day court-ordered stint in August. 

    The 26-year-old star's father, Michael Lohan, tells E! News his daughter made the move because "she wasn't getting any individual therapy" and it was the "same old thing to her." 

    Prior to the transfer, sources told E! News the embattled actress was "doing well" at Betty Ford, where she was "super committed to therapy and mending her relationship with her family." 

    LiLo  is expected to make her first post-rehab appearance at The Canyons premiere at the Venice Film Festival after she completes her sentence.
