Amanda Bynes Exits Treatment Facility, Heads To Family Home
Amanda Bynes was placed on an involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold in July
Amanda Bynes is finally leaving her inpatient treatment program, and will be permitted to continue her recovery at her parent’s home in Los Angeles.
Amanda Bynes Completes Inpatient Treatment
Bynes has been hospitalized since July, when she was discovered starting a fire in the driveway of her family home. It was the latest incident in a string of run ins with the law for the former Nickelodeon star that had received heavy media attention and drew the concern of her family, friends and fans.
"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," lawyer Tamar Arminak told People in a statement. "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day."
Lynn Bynes Has Legal Control Over Daughter
In September, Bynes was still deemed unfit to stand trial after the involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold had been placed upon her a few months prior. And her mother, Lynn Bynes, was granted legal control over her. Although she’s now no longer required to remain in a facility, she’s expected to continue outpatient treatment and remain in the care of her family.
"Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing,” Arminak said. “She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
Amanda Bynes To Launch Fashion Career
The former child star, who parlayed her early success into a number of film roles and TV series, had stated her desire to retire from acting. It looks as though Bynes was true to her word, as her family’s lawyer says that the 27-year-old is considering returning to school to study fashion.
"She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design," the attorney said. "She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."
Bynes, who was now been deemed able to comprehend the DUI charges she faces from April 2012, will appear in court on Jan. 7, 2014.
