U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan started a three-month rehabilitation program right after being released from jail early Monday, according to media reports.

Lohan, 24, was discharged early after only serving 14 days of a 90-day sentence due to her good behavior and under early-release programs to combat overcrowding in Los Angeles' budget-strapped jail system.

She was sentenced last month for violating her probation on a 2007 drunk-driving charge.

She booked into the all-female jail on July 20 and was placed in solitary confinement.

One inmate at Lynwood Prison in Los Angeles said Lohan had shunned all jail foods except one. "She only ate Jell-O puddings because they're pre-packaged," said Cheryl Prezzer, 43.

"She wouldn't touch any of the other food and looked pretty weak by the time she left," according to

Lohan will be treated for bipolar disorder and an addiction to amphetamines in the 90-day stint in rehab, according to celebrity website

Lohan shot to fame at age 11 in a remake of "The Parent Trap," and her subsequent work in "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls" established her as one of Hollywood's most promising actresses.
