August 24, 2010 |  6:33 pm

Lindsay Lohan Lindsay Lohan was released from rehab Tuesday, a little more than three weeks after leaving jail and entering treatment, Radar Online reports.

Doctors last week told the court that Lohan may have been misdiagnosed with ADHD years ago, TMZ sources said, and didn't have the drug and alcohol problems some had suspected.

Lohan, for her part, has long maintained that she didn't need substance-abuse treatment, no matter what the tabloids said. 

Next step for Lindsay? Outpatient care.

[Updated, 7 p.m. Aug. 25: Lohan's release was approved by the judge around 5 p.m. Tuesday, and Lohan left through a back door around 8 p.m., L.A. Now reports.
