Michael Lohan is planning to open a woman-only rehab centre.
Michael – whose daughter Lindsay Lohan is currently receiving treatment for drug problems at the Betty Ford Clinic – wants to open an addiction treatment facility in Pasadena, California, and is in the process of finalising the details.
He said: "The rehab will treat only women, not men.
"I'm working on fine tuning the therapists and doctors but the financing is in place and it's going to be very religiously oriented.
“I’ll be running it and it is backed by a really well known person.”
Though the showbiz patriarch declined to name who his backer is, it has been speculated that it may be celebrity doctor Drew Pinsky, as he films his show, ‘Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew’ in Pasadena.
Michael – who has repeatedly claimed his 24-year-old daughter is addicted to prescription medication – also vowed to look for alternative methods to treat patients.
He told RadarOnline.com: "I don't believe in prescription drugs. If people come in on them they're going to have to get off of them, otherwise they'll be looking for another rehab.
"I believe spirituality and holistic methods can cure anything. God will be a major element in recovery."
Michael - who is estranged from his four children with ex-wife Dina – previously claimed he would open the facility to anyone in need of help.
He said recently: "I'm not going to close my doors on anyone. We may offer a scholarship to those in need. You don't have to be Lindsay Lohan or Nicole Richie or Robert Downey Jr. or a celebrity to get rehab."
