A judge Wednesday dismissed two of the five DUI-related counts against Lindsay Lohan and ordered the actress to undergo an outpatient rehab program.

At a probation modification hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox mandated that Lohan live in Los Angeles while undergoing outpatient psychotherapy and addiction counseling sessions.

Lohan, 24, must have random drug and alcohol testing twice a week, attend behavioral therapy sessions twice weekly, have seven contacts per week with a counselor for chemical dependency issues, attend 12-step chemical dependency sessions five times weekly and attend four psychotherapy sessions a week, according to People magazine. Any missed or positive drug tests would result in up to 30 days in jail.

Barring violations, her supervised probation will end Nov. 1.

Lohan's mother and manager, Dina Lohan, 47, said: "My children and I have made it through a very difficult time period and we are looking forward to putting this all behind us and moving forward in a positive direction."

The starlet, who appears in director Robert Rodriguez's Sept. 3 release, "Machete," "has accepted responsibility," defense attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said. "She has changed. She's healthy, she's clearheaded, she is positive and looking forward. "

At noon Thursday, Calverton-based radio station WPTY/105.3-FM, aka "Party 105," is holding a news conference at 336 W. 37th St. in Manhattan to offer the mother-daughter duo $1 million to co-host a nationally syndicated radio show covering fashion and entertainment.
