He may not have been able to keep his own daughter out of trouble, but Lindsay Lohan's dad Michael Lohan is hoping to help others by opening a faith-based rehab facility in L.A.
"I know this is what God wants me to do first and foremost," 50-year-old Lohan, who has also battled drugs and alcohol, tells Us Weekly. "After seeing what my daughter, myself, and other people I know have been through, it has led me to realize this is my calling and purpose in life."
The center will not have doctors or conduct medical treatments but will instead be a spiritual retreat, focusing on mind, body and soul, and including activities such as yoga and kickboxing.
"The basis of the rehab will be that there is a God; that good conquers evil; that the best way to live is to treat others like you want to be treated; and treat your body like a temple," explains Lohan, who says the facility won't cater strictly to A-listers.
"I'm not going to close my doors on anyone. We may offer a scholarship [to those in need]," he explains. "You don't have to be Lindsay Lohan or Nicole Richie or Robert Downey Jr. or a celebrity to get rehab."
