'A formula for disaster': Lindsay Lohan headed for a meltdown?

Right up until her July split from Russian entrepreneur Egor Tarabasov, it seemed that Lindsay Lohan was finally getting her life back on track.

Indeed, before breaking things off with her fiancé after a series of violent arguments, the troubled star had been living a low-key life in London, shunning the bars and trying to make it as a stage actress.

But since the collapse of her engagement, Lindsay - who's completed numerous stints in rehab - has decided to throw her energy into opening a club in Athens, Greece, called, well, Lohan.

But having been arrested for possession and of cocaine in 2007, and later confessing to Oprah that she was addicted to alcohol, numerous experts have gone on the record, sharing their fears that the former wild child could be headed for a relapse.

“Opening up a nightclub is a major red flag for someone like Lindsay because she is now going to have to promote the nightclub, being out all hours of the night and being around alcohol and drugs which puts her in an environment that is not conducive to people who have drug and alcohol issues," founder and CEO of The Hills Treatment Center, who doesn't treat Lindsay, tells FOX11.

FOX News’ Dr Manny Alvarez adds: “This is very troubling for someone with her medical history the chances of relapse are very high.

“To be around alcohol and perhaps people that might be indulging in drugs is a formula for disaster.”

What’s more, a rehab professional, who also doesn’t treat Lindsay, says the star's recent Instagram shots of herself partying and posing in lingerie are also a worry.

“These photos and her new job promoting a nightclub are activities not conducive to a sober lifestyle and raise significant concern for her possible need to seek additional addiction and behavioural health services, as addicts often relapse to self-medicate a mental health condition,” Warren Zysman of ACI Rehab says.

But it wasn’t all bad news from FOX 11’s experts, with Dr Samuels praising Lindsay for the work she's been doing with Syrian refugees.

“The good news is her helping refugees in the Middle East is evidence of being of service and making a commitment to helping others," he says of the charity work she carried out in September.
