Lindsay Lohan has been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, her rep tells PEOPLE.

"Yes, she's been attending some meetings, and it's going to be a slow process," says her publicist, Leslie Sloane. "This is a positive. Let's hope that the press doesn't turn it into a negative."

Sloane says she's asking the media not to intrude on the meetings or follow Lohan, 20, to and from the gatherings.

"Maybe if (the press) backs off on her she'll be in a good space," Sloane added. "Let's see if we don't have to hear about it every day, and they're following her and trying to find her. Because that will just really not be good."

Earlier this week, the New York Post's Page Six column reported that Lohan was spotted at an AA meeting in Los Angeles. On Friday, E!'s Ryan Seacrest asked Lohan's mother, Dina, if Lohan was in AA. Dina replied, "That is true. ... It's a positive thing."
