Amanda Bynes' Rehab Stay Might Not Be The Best Thing For The Starlet
Amanda Bynes seems to be going through treatment on her own terms.
Amanda Bynes’ rehab entry has changed the terms of her treatment, TMZ reports. The troubled star, who was taken on 5150 hold and then had her stay at the UCLA psychiatric ward extended at the end of August, has now moved to a Malibu rehab center, according to the website. The center, The Canyon, reportedly does not have the psychiatric care facilities of UCLA, which could jeopardize Bynes’ treatment for a serious mental illness, but it does cater specifically to celebrities, so the star is getting her privacy at the very least.
The troubled actress has moved from UCLA to a private facility.
The website reports that Amanda prefers to keep to herself and has barely interacted with other people since her entry into the center. The retired actress checked into The Canyon about three weeks ago and she has remained within her living area at the center since then. Apparently, the star has given up the trademark wig that she was seen wearing in the weeks prior to her psychiatric hold. However, she is now paranoid that the paparazzi will find her.
The Canyon might not be equipped to treat Amanda's mental disorder.
In fact, The Canyon’s reputation for protecting celebrities’ privacy isn’t entirely spotless. The center suffered quite a lot of damage in 2011, after an employee leaked information about Brooke Mueller, who was staying there at the time. At the time, Mueller filed a lawsuit against the center, which was settled for a sum in the neighborhood of $250.
It seems the most important thing to Bynes right now is her privacy.
