NEW YORK (CBS) Lindsay Lohan might be getting a little help in paying for her stint in rehab - but she'll have to make a drastic change to her diet to get it.

PETA has offered to help pay the actress' rehab expenses if she becomes a vegan.

Special Projects Manager Michelle Cho wrote a letter to the actress detailing the offer from the animal rights organization.

"We understand that you've fallen on tough economic times, so we're writing to you with an offer that we sincerely hope you'll consider," Cho's letter states. "PETA will help pay your $50,000 bill for substance addiction treatment if you'll rid yourself of one more toxic substance: meat."

"As you know, a crucial part of any recovery is showing charity to others. One way to do this is to be kind to animals, the Earth, and your own body. You'll never regret it," the letter continued.

On Oct. 22, Lohan was ordered by a judge to remain at the Betty Ford Center until Jan. 3. She checked into the center voluntarily three weeks earlier.

According to E! Online, PETA offered to pay $20,000 of Lohan's $50,000 bill for the court-ordered stay, which she has reportedly indicated she can't afford. The actress would get the first $10,000 for adopting the vegan diet while in rehab, and would receive the other $10,000 if she maintains the diet for one year following her release from the center.

Lohan's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley told the website that Lohan is "seriously considering" the offer.
