Shit is getting real for Lindsay Lohan -- having started her stint at rehab, she's now dealing with some of the realities of sobering up that the rest of the recovering world has to deal with, too; like, for instance, once you get to rehab, you have to stay at rehab.

People magazine reports that as part of her treatment, LiLo can't leave the Betty Ford Center's grounds:

Lohan, who's serving a 90-day sentence at the Rancho Mirage, Calif., facility for violating probation, will be confined to the sprawling desert grounds, according to a letter addressed to Lohan's attorney Shawn Holley and filed with the L.A. Superior Court. "It is understood by the Betty Ford Center that your client is to remain on the premises for the duration of her 90-day stay in treatment," the document reads.

The Center goes on to say that they can't physically force a patient to stay, since they're not, like, a jail, but that typically patients have to earn the privilege of going off-campus, and Lohan hasn't earned it yet.

In the meantime, she has somehow finagled a way to cling to her Adderall prescription. TMZ notes that because she has a prescription for it, she's allowed to keep it for now.

Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in the treatment facility back in March, and began her stint last Thursday. If we're lucky, we'll be able to read all about it on the internet very soon.
