After being released from treatment in Dec., Lynn and their family attorney Tamar Arminak told in statement, “Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she’s feeling better every day.

"She’s now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design," the lawyer said.

"She’s mentioned before she’s interested in creating a clothing line. Despite the fact Bynes is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She’s very happy to re-establish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared.”
