The resilient former Nickelodeon star was arrested on Apr. 6, 2012, in West Hollywood, Calif., just days after she turned 26 and charged with a DUI after allegedly hitting a cop car.
Last year, Bynes' mother Lynn was granted conservatorship of her troubled daughter after a parade of erratic and bizarre incidents, culminating in her hospitalization after setting a small fire in a neighbor's driveway.
After being released from treatment in Dec., Lynn and their family attorney Tamar Arminak told RadarOnline.com 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.”

"Amanda is moving forward with her life, and has a tremendous support network around her. Her family loves and supports her and Amanda is looking forward to the next chapter of her life," a source told RadarOnline.com.
Richard Hutton, the attorney representing Bynes, made the plea on her behalf at the LAX Airport courthouse, as the actress wasn't required to attend the proceedings.
As part of the plea deal, Bynes will be on probation for three years, pay a fine and attend an alcohol education class.
