Five months after Amanda Bynes was taken into custody on an involuntary 5150 hold, she’s returning home. But the troubled actress isn’t alone — she’ll recover in her parents’ Los Angeles home, while her mother remains in control of her well-being and finances.
“Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who’s contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda’s recovery,” her mother’s lawyer said. “Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she’s feeling better every day.”
After being forcibly hospitalized for setting a driveway fire, a judge required the 27-year-old to seek treatment, and soon after, she was moved into a rehab center in Malibu. Her recent release, though, is no surprise — last month, a judge found her mentally competent to stand trial in her DUI case from April 2012, so it was suspected that she’d made strides in her treatment.
Already, Amanda has plans for the future. “She’s now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design,” the lawyer continued. “She’s mentioned before she’s interested in creating a clothing line.”
Still, the road to recovery is far from over. “Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing,” the statement concluded. “She’s very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared.”
