Amanda Bynes

I'll Be Home For Christmas

11/5/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda Bynes will be home in her own bed by Christmas ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with her treatment tell TMZ ... Amanda's meds and psychological counseling have sufficiently stabilized her so her doctors will let her leave the Malibu rehab facility where she's been held since September.

As TMZ first reported ... Amanda was released from the UCLA psych ward and went to the rehab facility because the psych ward was freaking her out and preventing her from improving.

Doctors will release Amanda to her mom, who will then take her to the family house and provide supervision.  The move will take place sometime next month.

We're told -- aside from the fact that the meds and therapy appear to be working -- doctors are concerned that Amanda is going stir crazy.  She's not allowed to go outside because paparazzi are hanging out at the facility and the staff is worried if Amanda is around other patients and pictures are taken, it will compromise the others.

Calls to Amanda's parents' attorney, Tamar Arminak, were not returned.

I hope her family can keep her grounded and she can live a normal life. She doesn't seem to be able to handle fame. TMZ, you guys should stop reporting on her.

MK ULTRA programming gone wrong again. Just like Britney's did. Miarah's meltdown, Courtney Stodden will be the next one. Her "husband" Doug was her handler. Really, Google it.

She's baaaack    

That poor woman must have been incredibly ill. The first thing they have to do is unravel the whole range of illnesses then treating it becomes a challenge, but is usually doesn't take this long to get someone straightened out. I can't imagine she won't ever be under some kind of conservatorship or supervision because if she is that sick as soon as she decides she doesn't need her meds she's going to be right back where she started. I feel bad for her.

Wow Some of the comments on here are awful. Would people be making fun of her if she had cancer? Its such a shame that people feel its ok to make light and make fun of mental illness. That is one of the reasons why people who are mentally ill kill themselves or refuse to seek help becuase of the mocking and jokes and stigma attached to being sick with a mental disorder. I hope Amanda is doing better and unlike what one commenter said being on meds doesnt mean you are numb and vaccant. There are plenty of people who function just fine its all about finding the right combo.

Wow. Using such a pretty picture when she was in healthier times?? Harvey and his crew must have a soft spot for Amanda. I am not complaining - the girl clearly needed help and luckily she's getting it before it i too late..


I just remember how they'd post the crazy pictures of Britney during her recovery process.. so this is a nice change for them to use a picture of Amanda in better times..

I find it absolutely disgusting people making fun of this poor woman. She is mentally ill and couldn't help the way she was acting. How would the people laughing at her like it if someone they loved had her illness and people were laughing making fun of them?? Am sure they would be very angry and upset by it. I've seen people on Twitter and websites, this one included making fun of her and it's wrong and cruel. Anyway karma always happens to people who enjoy and take pleasure in seeing people suffer and go through a hard time. Also TMZ leave her alone! It's your fault in the first place why she can't go outside as your the one that told the world where she is staying. You have affected her recovery by doing that and you should be ashamed of yourselves. Back of and get out her face.

I hope she continues to take her meds. But I seriously doubt it.
