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.

I guess they're gonna let her try and 12 step her schizophrenia away in a cushy celebrity style rehab. I can't believe anyone thinks this is going to be successful.

So to sum up this article ... Amanda is more than likely a paranoid schizophrenic who is still in a vulnerable state and is terrified about being followed... so you guys tell the public exactly where she's living and being treated? When this poor woman gets out of treatment, her family needs to move her FAR away from any city with invasive/creepy paps.

When she finally leaves therapy there's talk that she'll star in a remake of the 70's flick "One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest."

So they send the kid to a place where they have absolutely NO Psychiatric nor proper medical staff and instead they are going to give her the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous and indoctrinate her into a pseudo Christian FASCIST religion established by a con and a quack doctor and based on the beliefs of Frank Buckman who was quoted as saying that Mr Hitler was wonderful

That is just great that is really going to help the poor girl sort her self out
