Amanda Bynes Transfers To Exclusive Rehab Centre From Hospital

Amanda Bynes has moved from the Reagan UCLA Medical Centre and moved to a private facility outside Los Angeles. Her mother's attorney, Tamar Arminak, made the announcement yesterday (Monday 30th September). According to TMZ, Bynes is now residing in The Canyons, an exclusive Malibu rehab centre which caters specially for celebrities.

Bynes was in the Medical Center undergoing a court-ordered mental health treatment. She was placed in care after she reportedly started a fire outside a Thousand Oaks home in July. Her stay in the psychiatric facility, originally set at 72 hours, has been continually extended. The 27-year-old actress has been placed under the conservatorship of her mother, Lynn Bynes, after a court hearing earlier this month. 

There does appear to be hope for the Bynes family, as Arminak released a statement saying "Amanda is making great strides towards recovery." The attorney continued by stating "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."

When Amanda Bynes is considered sufficiently well enough she will be facing a court to answer for a DUI incident from April 2012, according to the LA Times. She will also have to face further charges in California as she is already on probation in California for a suspended licence. She is facing other charges in New York relating to marijuana possession and throwing a glass bong out of her Manhattan apartment window.

Hopefully Bynes is improving, however TMZ's sources claim she continues to struggle: that she is paranoid and fearful that the paparazzi will discover her whereabouts. Furthermore she rarely speaks to people or leaves her own living quarters.
