Amanda Bynes has left the hospital in Los Angeles for the rehab center known for catering to celebrity clients.
Insiders reveal the actress, believed to be suffering from schizophrenia, is not receiving the same intensive psychiatric care at The Canyons that was available to her at UCLA.
The 27-year-old actress is said to have been moved to The Canyon several weeks ago. Her doctors have Amanda under a different psychiatric hold now, called an LPS due to her mental illness.
The LPS hold is part of the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act that basically means patients with severe psychiatric problems can be held in a facility against their will to receive treatment.
An insider said that Bynes, who is not wearing her wig these days, is terribly paranoid that she will be photographed at the rehab center. She also spends her time there alone and doesn’t interact with other people there.
Last week, Amanda’s lawyer Gerald Shargel asked for a “postponement for up to 18 months” on the bong tossing arrest charges while she continues psychiatric treatment. It appears they expect Amanda Bynes to remain in treatment until 2015.
The “Easy A” star was admitted to the hospital’s psychiatric ward in July after months of bizarre behavior, which ended in her setting a fire in a woman’s driveway.
She was originally placed on involuntary psychiatric hold in Ventura, California in July before being moved to UCLA Medical Center last month.
