Lindsay Lohan recently declared she is healthy and happier and has put her substance-abuse problems behind her – but her recent behavior may suggest otherwise.

After trips to London and Atlantic City, N.J., Lohan, 23, is back in Los Angeles, where she has been out late for three consecutive nights.

On Tuesday, the starlet arrived at Bardot Hollywood after 1 a.m., where her ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, 32, was deejaying. According to a source, Ronson asked security to stay by her side until Lohan left the club. “She wouldn’t leave, and at the end of the night, you could tell she was waiting for Sam,” the source says, noting that Lohan texted her ex, who ignored the message.

“They never talked at all, though, and Sam was definitely avoiding [her],” the source says.

A similar scene played out the night before – this time at Teddy’s inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where Ronson was also deejaying. Lohan, who asked for a table near Ronson and was denied, was “a total mess,” a witness says. “She looked really drunk when she arrived and seemed so out of it,” the witness tells PEOPLE.

The actress was out again on Wednesday night, acting “aloof” at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont – though this time her ex-girlfriend wasn’t anywhere in sight.

‘She Needs Help’

Friends of Lohan are concerned about her recent partying.

She needs help. She needs to solve her problems,” a source close to the star says. “She s just not taking care of herself.”

In a recent interview with Britain’s Sun, Lohan admitted to using cocaine in the past, and pointed a finger at her father, Michael Lohan. “I was only aware of cocaine because of my dad,” Lohan told the paper. “I was terrified of it. But I tried it because I was stubborn, stupid, and wanted to see what it was like.”

And she maintains that her substance use is behind her. “Now I’m in a place where I don’t need to use anything,” she told the paper, “and I can feel emotions because I choose to.”

She also told the newspaper that she drinks alcohol in moderation. “I’m allowed to drink now, but I know my limits,” she said, adding that she sees a therapist every two weeks and attends weekly alcohol education lessons.
