More than four months after she was placed on psychiatric hold for setting a fire in a stranger’s driveway, Amanda Bynes is home.
Tamar Arminak, the Bynes family attorney, confirmed early this morning that Amanda completed her inpatient treatment at a Malibu facility. The former Nickelodeon actress is now living with her parents and continuing treatment on an outpatient basis.
“She’s feeling better every day,” Tamar told People. “She’s now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She’s mentioned before she’s interested in creating a clothing line. Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She’s very happy to re-establish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared.”
Tamar added Lynn Bynes still controls Amanda’s finances and health decisions.
Lynn previously said she and husband Rick Bynes are thankful for the support and privacy Amanda’s been granted since her hospitalization began in July: “Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
As for Amanda’s current treatment plan, an inside source told Radar Online the 27-year-old actress’ actions will “be very controlled and supervised.”
“If Amanda needs to get further inpatient treatment, she will,” the insider added. “The plan is for Amanda to continue to see her doctors and adjust back to living her life.”
