Amanda Bynes

Bails On UCLA

For Malibu Rehab Joint

EXCLUSIVE

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.

So whomever is running her conservatorship must have given the OK for this, right? THEY, too, must need their head examined!

Major mental illness is no joke. Nor is it curable, only controllable. Show business and Hollywood are the worst environments for someone struggling to right themselves. She needs to retire from entertainment, relocate, and try to build a new life doing something very low profile and rewarding to her emotionally. Doing the Malibu recovery carnival is a very bad sign.

Excuse me but I thought we just got a recent update on her condition while at UCLA. Come to find out she's been at the Canyons for close to a month?

I suspected all along drugs played a part in this. Now her docs are starting to come around to the fact that her fear of the stalkerazzi was justified. I'm sure having the cops invade her home after someone made a false report had a profound effect and caused her to 'tip.' After that she was followed incessantly.
Her drug screening must have turned up dirty if she was allowed a transfer to rehab. Moms probably had to give up conservatorship because it couldn't be proven she needed it for psychiatric reasons.
Is one's mental state considered 'dire' if they don't want to mingle with other addicts in rehab or are afraid they'll be harassed by the Papz while in recovery? I think not.

So tired of wendy williams saying (daily) "not the Amanda bynes and Lindsay Lohans of the world"

Did anyone inform Mr Williams that Ms Bynes has a mental illness?

"LOL CRAZY WHOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

The English language is truly on its deathbed. The morons of this generation are the hands on the pillow that are determinedly and slowly suffocating it. You cross-eyed text imbeciles richly deserve the world you will live in if you make it to oh, say 60 years old. Enjoy your future kids, and good luck--you all will need it!
