Amanda Bynes

Bails On UCLA

For Malibu Rehab Joint

9/30/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda Bynes
left the UCLA Medical Center, where she was getting treatment for a serious mental illness, and is now ensconced at a fancy Malibu rehab center that caters to celebs ... TMZ has learned.

It's shocking ... the facility does not have the psychiatric facilities available at UCLA, and we're told she's still in a desperate state.  It's all the more shocking because she's under a special hold -- called an LPS -- which doctors got because they were so concerned about her well-being.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda checked in to The Canyon approximately 3 weeks ago.  She interacts with people very little and rarely leaves the area where she's living. 

Amanda is not wearing her wig and is "paranoid" the paparazzi will find her.

The Canyon got in big trouble in 2011 ... after an employee allegedly sold confidential information about Brooke Mueller during her stay.  We're told Brooke settled her lawsuit against the facility for somewhere around $250k.

UCLA, Malibu rehab joint, blah blah blah. When Amanda's treatment is over, if her parents really want what's best for their daughter, they'll move. Period.

Amanda's father is a very respected Dentist, who could easily relocate somewhere else and take her with him. Away from the paps and drama.

Dear whoever at tmz who posted this -

Ok, wait... So a girl that has been confirmed to have a mental illness. One severe enough that her parents were able to take charge. One severe enough that she was held beyond her initial 48 hours... And she's terrified that paparazzi will find her..

So, wait.. Let me make sure that I am understanding this...

A girl is actually getting help for a mental illness....

And you actually feel that it's ok to report on it?

I think children and people with mental illness should be off limits. It's a fine line in life. Maybe you could learn it.

Someone needs tighter reins on her. And her mom just dropped the bid for conservatorship ....why?
Because, according to the previous article here at TMZ, "Amanda is currently on an LPS hold -- translation, doctors have a tighter rein on Amanda than her mother would have with a conservatorship."
Now what kind of sense does THAT make?

First her mother bails out of the conservatorship and now this! Does anyone care about this young woman in about as much trouble as she can be in life? Apparently NOT. Very very very SAD.

She's paranoid the paps will find her......and they did. Does this mean her paranoia is actually a well founded fear?

Suzy Q     

"LPS" is just the acronym for the Lanterman–Petris–Short (LPS) Act which changed the laws on inappropriate, unending involuntary commitments. She probably went in on a 5150 and/or a 5250 (via a hearing), but once the two weeks of a 5250 hold is up, the patient can leave unless a judge decides otherwise.

Additionally, a person can't be evaluated for a mental health condition if they are on drugs or alcohol, because the condition could be drug induced.

Give her some time to see if her symptoms subside without substances. Then diagnose.
