Report: Amanda Bynes Moves from Hospital to Malibu Rehab
Is troubled starlet Amanda Bynes rehabbing in Malibu?
TMZ reports that Bynes left UCLA Medical Center, where she was receiving psychiatric treatment after being placed on an LPS hold, and has moved into the Malibu rehab center The Canyon. She has been there for the past three weeks.
With the LPS hold, doctors have a tighter rein Bynes, and they have given her mother the power to make medical and financial decisions for her daughter.
In late July, the 27-year-old former Nickelodeon star had been involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation after she was arrested for setting a fire in the driveway of a home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
A statement released on Monday by the family's attorney, Tamar Arminak, notes that based on the "recommendation" by her doctors at UCLA , the 27-year-old star is now "receiving specialized treatment in a private facility outside of Los Angeles" and "is making great strides toward recovery."
The statement concluded, "The entire Bynes family would like to ask that they be given some measure of privacy so they can focus on Amanda's health and well-being. The Bynes family would also like to thank all of Amanda's supporters and well-wishers for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."
