Amanda Bynes will remain in a rehabilitation center for her upcoming birthday.
“Amanda will be spending her 33rd birthday in treatment and will celebrate on April 3,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.
In fact, the actress’ stay will be lengthy for the sake of her well-being. “She will remain in treatment for several more months,” the insider adds. “Nothing will be rushed to give Amanda the best possible result after leaving treatment.”
Us confirmed in March that Bynes checked herself into a rehab center in Los Angeles. “Amanda went to rehab in January after suffering a setback which was the result of feeling pressure of being back in the spotlight after her Paper magazine cover,” a source revealed to Us at the time. “Amanda is continuing treatment with the assistance of mental health counselors and addiction specialists.”
The insider also gave Us an update on her condition, saying that the Amanda Show alum was “responding very well to treatment and her team remains extremely optimistic about her future.” Bynes was “moving forward” and acknowledged that “getting help will only benefit her.”
The She’s the Man star opened up about her struggles with depression and addiction in her November 2018 interview with Paper. She recalled smoking marijuana at age 16 before turning to molly, ecstasy, Adderall and briefly cocaine.
Bynes was nearly four years sober at the time of the cover story. “When I was off of [drugs], I was completely back to normal and immediately realized what I had done — it was like an alien had literally invaded my body,” she told the magazine. “That is such a strange feeling.”
In addition, the What I Like About You alum noted her plans to return to acting. “What’s there to lose? I have no fear of the future,” she explained. “I’ve been through the worst and came out the other end and survived it so I just feel like it’s only up from here.”

Amanda Bynes is under the care of mental health professionals and addiction counselors again after suffering a relapse … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to her family tell us … Amanda checked into an L.A.-area rehab facility in January — the end result of a backslide that we’re told started months earlier. You’ll recall, Amanda was on the cover of Paper magazine in November.
We’re told the pressure of being back in the public eye, plus auditioning in Hollywood again … was just too much, too soon for Amanda.
She’s getting treatment for drug addiction along with mental health issues, according to our sources, who also say she’s still getting a ton of support from her parents.
As we reported … Amanda revealed in the Paper feature her 2006 role in “She’s the Man” sent her into a spiral of severe depression. She also blamed a lot of her troubles and infamous moments on drugs. At the time of the article, she said she was 4 years sober.
Bynes was diagnosed with bipolar disorder years ago and has been in and out of mental health facilities multiple times in the past decade. During one of her worst episodes, Amanda set a fire in a neighbor’s driveway and nearly burned her dog.
She eventually got treatment and her condition improved greatly. She’d been studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in L.A. up until last year … when she said she wanted to get back into acting.
Amanda remains under a conservatorship started by her parents, but it’s been run by a mental health professional since 2014.
The remainder of the missing events have been uploaded. Seeing as there are currently no new pictures of Amanda, the site will be updated with additional pictures of her attending events, out and about etc. Enjoy! 😀
