Dina Lohan, her daughter Ali and a childhood friend of Lindsay's made the trip from New York to Los Angeles earlier this week to meet up with the actress at the Wonderland clinic, which she checked into last month.
Dina invited TV cameras from news shows The Insider and Entertainment Tonight to join her for the trip, in the hope it would give her the chance to tell her daughter's fans how worried she is.
And she hit the streets of Hollywood before meeting up with her daughter to show TV cameras what her daughter has to put up with, as the paparazzi swarmed her.
Explaining her decision to make the reunion trip a public affair, Dina says, "I'm gonna stop the madness before my child ends up killed."
Of her own experiences with the paparazzi, who she claims follow her troubled daughter everywhere, Dina adds, "After a long day's work, you just don't want to have to deal with that stress, and there's a respect line that they're crossing.
"They're chasing her in a car, which is a (Princess) Diana waiting to happen... and I wanna kind of let them know we're gonna be watching her watching you."
