Amanda Was Reportedly Abusing Prescription Drugs

Amanda Bynes' Details Amazing Recovery In Conservatorship Case, Suffers From No 'Disorders'

On Sunday, March 19th, Bynes was seen roaming the streets near downtown Los Angeles completely nude. She called 9-1-1 on herself and was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold.

Bynes apparently flagged down a car and explained she was “coming down” from a psychotic episode.

After officers arrived on the scene, she was taken to a police station where mental health professionals determined she needed to be hospitalized.

At this point, Amanda’s family is in contact with medical professionals and it is unclear how long the actress will be hospitalized. Normally, a 5150 hold lasts three days, but it can be extended by a doctor or a judge if they believe she needs further treatment.

Our sources are not revealing which drug they believe she is abusing, but Bynes has a history with Adderall, a drug that can cause dramatic weight loss if used improperly.

Amanda's Parents WON'T Seek Another Conservatorship

Amanda Bynes’ Conservatorship Officially Extended Through The Year 2023

It should be noted, for years the actress was under a conservatorship where her family and the courts could monitor her behavior and subsequent treatment. Shockingly, Amanda was released from the conservatorship almost a year ago to the day.

On March 24, 2022, a judge issued an order stating that she had “provided facts that the conservatorship is no longer needed.”

At the time, the document noted that she had “the capacity to give informed consent to any form of medical treatment. The court determined that the conservatorship was no longer required and the grounds for the establishment of a conservatorship of the person no longer existed.

A new report states her parents are NOT considering placing her under another conservatorship.

A source revealed that her parents, Lynn and Rick, are extremely concerned about their daughter’s well-being and health after this weekend.
