The actress/singer's publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, has confirmed Lohan is seeking help, adding, "It is going to be a slow process, and this is (a) very positive thing."
Sloane says she's asking the media not to intrude on the meetings or follow Lohan, 20, to and from the gatherings.
She tells People magazine, "Maybe if (the press) backs off on her she'll be in a good space.
"Let's see if we don't have to hear about it everyday, and they're following her and trying to find her. Because that will just really not be good."
The announcement comes just days after Lohan joined newly single Britney Spears and on-off pal Paris Hilton for a series of late-night parties. She was spotted partying at Los Angeles club Area on Thursday night.
Lohan's mother spoke about her daughter's AA involvement on Los Angeles radio presenter Ryan Seacrest's morning show yesterday, agreeing with Sloane and stating, "It's a positive thing."
Meanwhile, Lohan is playing down a new USA Today newspaper report suggesting a doctor was rushed to her hotel room at Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont on Nov. 12 to revive her after she suffered a drug overdose.
The 20-year-old admits a doctor was called to the room, but insists she was no "Marilyn Monroe, overdosing in the bathroom."
