updated 1/18/2007 3:02:35 PM ET 2007-01-18T20:02:35

Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab.

“I have made a proactive decision to take care of my personal health. I appreciate your well wishes and ask that you please respect my privacy at this time,” said the 20-year-old actress in a statement issued Wednesday through her publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick.

Us Weekly reports that Lohan entered the posh Wonderland Center in Los Angeles at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, arriving in a sports utility vehicle and clutching a Jamba Juice.

Lohan told People magazine then that she had been going to the meetings for a year.

“I haven’t had a drink in seven days. Or anything,” she said to People. “I’m not even legal to, so why would I? I don’t drink when I go to clubs. I drink with my friends at home, but there’s no need to. I feel better not drinking. It’s more fun. I have Red Bull.”

The actress, whose other screen credits include “Mean Girls,” “Bobby,” “A Prairie Home Companion” and “Freaky Friday,” recently had surgery to remove her appendix.
