Amanda Bynes

Parents Say Rehab Facility

Is What She Needs

Amanda Bynes has been moved from the psych ward of a major hospital to a ritzy rehab place in Malibu for her own good ... so say her parents.

Rick and Lynn Bynes are responding to our story that Amanda was moved 3 weeks ago from the UCLA Medical Center to The Canyon rehab facility in Malibu.

Amanda's parents -- through their lawyer Tamar Arminak -- say the move was on the advice of doctors at UCLA, and that she is making "great strides towards recovery."

Sources close to Amanda tell TMZ, "Amanda was stuck with people in much worse condition than her.  She was scared, afraid and did not leave her immediate room area."  The lawyer adds, at the rehab place, "She is getting specialized psych care, one on one treatment, not drug rehab."

Our source says Amanda is able to walk around the grounds, see the ocean and ride the horses.

And, sources say, UCLA costs $50k more a month to house Amanda.  That means she's paying $55k a month at The Canyon.

Why send a schizophrenic to rehab? Something doesn't add up with this story. Was she whacked out on bath salts or something?

So sad that these people feel the need to take the time to correct your reckless lies when they should be focusing all of their attention on the well-being and recovery of their daughter.

Rehab for schizophrenia? Is this to find the right medication combo for her to be stabilized, or it is life skills management for mental impairment? She sounds like its going to be a group home setting or living with the folks for her.

I don't get her parents. It seems like they're more concerned with Amanda's career than her well being.

Doctors are farming her for insurance money. They'll keep her there and pass her around till it runs out. So shes a little wachy so what. No big deal. So expect her to be in there till her insurance runs out or until she learns to play the game inside to get out.
She's a cash cow. Famous, Money and under their hold. There is nothing inside there that can make her "better"
Hate it all you want but its true.

A managed schizophrenic can benefit from less severe confinement. Amanda has been correctly medicated for quite a while now and may indeed be scared of the other patients in the unit (they are very scarey places). If she is showing signs of recognizing reality then a facility that is able to manage her medications, provide life-skills training and some quiet time may be perfect for her.

There is no way she could have done this without the approval of her LPS conservator and they wouldn't have done it unless her doctor's approved.
