Amanda Bynes is currently staying in a group home designed to focus on “sober living” after going through a recent relapse.
Sources close to the actress tell The Blast, Amanda is “not doing well” and her family and doctors felt the best place for her at this point, is in a group home focusing on sober living.
The move, followed a recent relapse in January, where Amanda checked into an L.A. rehab facility.
It was reported at the time, the pressure of being back in the public eye, and auditioning in Hollywood again … was “too much, too soon” for Amanda. She received treatment for drug addiction and mental health issues.
But, as we reported, Amanda has made a jump back on social media with a flurry of Instagram posts. Several, are showing off her new pink hair, which fans loved.
We’re told the pink hair, is not an indicator of Amanda’s starting to break back into show business, it’s actually of a few signs of issues with her mental health.
“She’s not doing well,” one source put it to us.
Bynes has a hearing in Ventura County Court today in her conservatorship case. Amanda has been under a conservatorship for years after an incident where she almost lit her dog on fire.
We’re told her parents have been very supportive, and mother Lynn has stepped in to help with medical and financial issues. But, today, a judge will go over many of the recent issues and decide what should be done next to help the actress.
Bynes admitted in a recent interview with ‘Paper’ magazine, she tried cocaine and ecstasy recreationally, but the drug she abused most was Adderall. The ADD medication and stimulant has been at the center of several meltdown situations in Hollywood. She recalled in the interview, there was a “new ‘skinny pill’ and they were talking about how women were taking it to stay thin. I was like, ‘Well, I have to get my hands on that.”
Amanda was arrested for DUI in 2014, after she seemed “out of it” during a traffic stop. Turned out she was under the influence of a Adderall.
Bynes recently graduated from fashion design school and her family hopes she can transition into a job in the industry and get her mental health and sobriety back on track.
