Amanda Bynes to Have Supervised Outings
Amanda Bynes will be allowed out of rehab twice a week.
The 27-year-old actress was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold in July after her wild behavior led to her allegedly being diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but she appears to be on the road to recovery as she will be given a pass for supervised outings every week.
"Amanda is being given two passes a week to go the beach, or out to eat and do things like that, accompanied by a professional handler. She is making great progress," a source told FOX411.
The Easy A star was moved to The Canyon treatment facility in Malibu at the end of September after spending two months at UCLA Medical Center and has reportedly been told she will "lead a long, normal life" as long as she continues to take her medication. Amanda's mother Lynn was granted a temporary conservatorship over her daughter in August, shortly after she was taken to a psychiatric unit by police officers, who arrested her after she struck up a small fire in the driveway of a stranger's home in Thousand Oaks, Los Angeles. Amanda's parents released a statement about her progress two months ago and said they were upbeat about her recovery.
