U.S. troubled actress Lindsay Lohan wants to open her own rehab facilities, according to media reports Tuesday.

Lohan's mother said on Monday that Lohan's experience at the Betty Ford Center has led her to want to open rehab centers for other young troubled people.

"We take it one day at a time, addiction is difficult. I don't know, I don't have a crystal ball. I pray hard and I hope she will be able -- she wants to start her own facilities, help other children. She is so public that I think we can only be positive and look to the future to help other families."

The 24-year-old actress is currently being treated at the center in southern California, famed for treating stars, in what is her fifth stint in rehab in three years. She was ordered by a judge last month back to the drug and alcohol rehab until January, after failing a random drug test.

The former teen idol's movie career has been derailed for three years because of failed drug tests, missed alcohol education classes, stints in rehab and three brief spells in jail.
