Actress Amanda Bynes has checked back into a mental health facility following a relapse after her return to the public eye, People Magazine reports.
Bynes, 32, had remained largely out of the public eye since a very public breakdown in 2014. But when a series of interviews and auditions brought her back to Hollywood, the She’s The Man star, unfortunately, suffered a reported relapse.
TMZ reports that she is seeking treatment for drug addiction and mental health issues. She has been in treatment since January of 2019, according to multiple reports.
Bynes was on the cover of Paper Magazine back in November, where she candidly discussed her struggle with drug use.
The actress said seeing herself play a girl pretending to be a boy in She’s The Man sent her into a downward spiral. In 2011, she began using Adderall to try and lose weight.
“I remember chewing on a bunch of them and literally being scatterbrained and not being able to focus on my lines or memorize them for that matter,” she said.
Bynes also said that mixing different drugs with marijuana caused a number of issues for her.
“It really made me a completely different person. I actually am a nice person. I would never feel, say or do any of the things that I did and said to the people I hurt on Twitter,” she said.
Bynes has been working hard and “moving forward” since entering treatment.
A source told Us Magazine, “Amanda is continuing treatment with the assistance of mental health counselors and addiction specialists.”
