After months of inpatient treatment, Amanda Bynes has officially been released from rehab. She is recovering at her parents’ L.A. home, according to her mother’s attorney.
“Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who’s contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda’s recovery,” Tamar Arminak said in a statement. “Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she’s feeling better every day.”
According to TMZ, a combination of medication and counseling stabilized Bynes’ condition. Doctors are said to have diagnosed her with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Amanda was hospitalized in July after starting a fire in a Sherman Oaks, California driveway. Her mother Lynn was granted temporary conservatorship of the 27-year-old former actress. After doing time at UCLA Medical Center, Amanda was moved to a Malibu rehab facility to finish her treatment.
According to Amanda’s attorney, she’s doing incredibly well and even trading her dreams of becoming a recording artist for dreams of getting a degree and becoming a fashion designer.
“She’s now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design,” Arminak said. “She’s mentioned before she’s interested in creating a clothing line.”
Arminak also assured concerned fans that Amanda’s treatment does not stop simply because she’s been released from the facility.
“Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She’s very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared.”
While she continues treatment, Amanda’s mother remains in charge of her and her finances.
Though she is still undergoing treatment, last week Amanda was found to be mentally stable enough to take the stand for her outstanding DUI charge. According to TMZ, she will likely seek out a plea bargain.
