KTLA: Lindsay Lohan could be released from jail as early as Sunday, according to reports, at which point she'll be headed straight to rehab.

Lohan's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley visited the actress at the Lynwood jail Friday. She said Lohan was doing fine and looking forward to her release, though she said she wasn't sure exactly when that would be.

When she's released, Lohan will have 24 hours to check into a rehab center -- reportedly Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach.

TMZ.com reports that a source close to the case says Lohan will be treated for addiction to methamphetamine and bipolar disorder.

TMZ also says that Judge Marsha Revel ignored the recommendations of two psychiatrists in choosing Morningside.

The psychiatrists recommended four facilities for Lohan, according to TMZ, including UCLA Medical Center. But Morningside wasn't on that list.

A probation officer apparently favored Morningside, TMZ says, and Morningside promised Revel to be tougher on Lindsay than on the average patient.

Lohan will be at a satellite compound in Costa Mesa.

She was sentenced to 90 days in jail, but is expected to serve only 13 because of prison overcrowding. That would put her release date on Monday, but she could get out as early as Sunday.

Some say Lohan has been getting preferential treatment as she remains behind bars.

Lohan's mother Dina and sister Ali visited her at the Lynwood jail on a Wednesday, despite the fact that other inmates have to wait until the weekend for visitors.

Law enforcement officials responded by saying, "Lindsay might get visitors after the official visiting hours are over for the other inmates for security reasons. It's for the safety of everyone."

Lohan is also receiving some of her usual prescription medications while behind bars.

Dylan Howard, Senior Executive Editor for RadarOnline, told KTLA that up until recently, Lohan has been "using a near lethal cocktail of drugs" including "Adderall, anti-depressants and the highly powerful drug Dilantin."

And, KTLA has learned, the actress can order food from a special store and get certain items delivered that the jail won't give her.

The program, called the Keefe Commissary Network Gift Pack Program, gives inmates $135 worth to spend on items like refried beans, Spam, Kit Kat bars, cookies and cupcakes.

Lohan's first jailhouse meal was turkey casserole.

Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail after violating her probation. She was set to serve just 14 days of that sentence, according to sheriff's officials. She has also been ordered to spend three months at an inpatient rehab.

Her "projected release date" is August 2, according to a booking document.
