Last week, Lindsay Lohan left the Betty Ford Center to finish out her court-ordered 90 days in rehab at the Cliffside center in Malibu. Now, the 26-year-old actress is moving again, this time to a location back east.

The New York Daily News reports that LiLo will make her new home at either the Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., or the Lukens Institute in Palm Beach.

Lohan's father, Michael, wasn't too clear about why his daughter is switching facilities again, but noted that she had to leave Betty Ford because it was "drug-infested":

“There are drugs all over the place inside there...It was a big problem and that’s why she wanted out.”

The new move has been approved by a judge and a prosecutor.

According to Huffington Post, LiLo is looking better than ever these days. In photos taken last week:

...the 26-year-old is laughing and chatting with other patients, dressed casually with her red hair in long, loose waves. In fact, she looks more like Cady Heron than we've seen in quite some time.

It's taken the actress some time to get used to the setting of rehab. She had some initial trouble adjusting to the fact that at Betty Ford, she couldn't leave whenever she watned to, and she also couldn't take Adderall.

She was ordered to spend 90 days at rehab in March, and began her stint in the beginning of May.
