BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – A source familiar with Lindsay Lohan’s criminal case says the actress has been released from rehab but will not appear at a Wednesday morning court hearing.

The source, who is familiar with the case but not authorized to speak publicly due to the sensitivity of her treatment, says Lohan will now enter a rigorous outpatient rehab program.

The actress’ release on Tuesday came after she spent 23 days of a three month sentence in a rehab program at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. She entered that facility early on Aug. 2 after spending 14 days of a three-month sentence in jail for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case.

A prosecutor and Lohan’s defense attorney will discuss the next steps in the ‘Mean Girls‘ star’s case at a court hearing Wednesday morning in Beverly Hills.
