In Touch can reveal that Amanda Bynes, who left the UCLA Medical Center in late September to seek specialized psychiatric care, is improving thanks to one-on-one treatment and heavy medication.
“She has her bad days, but overall, she’s doing well,” a source exclusively tells the mag. The 27-year-old star’s daily schedule — at a southern California rehab facility that In Touch won’t name to protect her privacy — includes activities such as exercise, acupuncture and therapy with her family.
“Her relationship with her parents is very strained,” says the source, explaining that she resents her parents for letting her illness go untreated for so long. “Amanda dreads seeing them, but she goes.”
More welcome visits have come from friends, and she’s even permitted to use her cellphone during the day — but doesn’t tweet per her doctors’ advice. “She looks forward to Sunday, when she’s allowed to leave the facility with an approved guest,” says the source, adding that Amanda chooses paparazzi free spots.
The inside source tells In Touch that Amanda is concentrating on reinventing herself and getting back into society. “She’s stable, but she won’t be leaving for good anytime soon.”
