Lindsay Lohan's father is convinced the only way his troubled daughter will get her life back on track is if she quits Hollywood for good.

The Mean Girls star has faced a difficult downward spiral over the last few years, ending in a stint in jail this summer after she breached her probation relating to a 2007 DUI arrest.

She is currently serving 90 days in court-ordered rehab, and her mother, Dina, recently admitted she wants her daughter to move back to her native New York when she completes her therapy in California.

But her father Michael is adamant the actress will slip back into her old habits if she goes back to work in Hollywood - insisting she has to step out of the spotlight for good in order to heal.

He tells Access Hollywood, "Dina says that Lindsay is coming back to New York after rehab. The funny part is, every time Lindsay comes back to New York, she doesn't stay at the house like she should. She stays in hotels in the city, and that gets her in trouble. She (needs) a clean house to get away from all the people. She can't go to the same places she used to go to. She can't do the same things and go out and party at night. She's gotta change her life completely...

"(Lindsay might) come back (to New York) for a little while, but she'll get back out there (Los Angeles) again. She needs to get away from everything... I'd like to see Lindsay step out of Hollywood. I'd like to see her get her life back, then decide what she wants to do."
