Amanda Bynes is a free woman after more than five months of treatment.

"Amanda was released in the last several days, into the custody of her mother, Lynn. Amanda is doing very well, in fact, she is doing great," a source revealed to Radar Online on December 4. "She is being closely monitored.”

"If Amanda needs to get further inpatient treatment, she will,” the insider continued. "The plan is for Amanda to continue to see her doctors and adjust back to living her life. It will be very controlled and supervised."

In July, following a bizarre incident involving a driveway fire, Amanda was placed on a 5150 hold which was later extended in court.

"Upon recommendation by the skilled healthcare professionals at UCLA Medical Center, Amanda is receiving specialized treatment in a private facility outside of Los Angeles," Amanda's parents' lawyer said at the time. "Amanda is making great strides towards recovery. The entire Bynes family would like to ask that they be given some measure of privacy so they can focus on Amanda’s health and well-being. The Bynes family would also like to thank all of Amanda’s supporters and well-wishers for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."

Regarding Amanda's release, Radar's source adds, "The outlook for Amanda is very, very good. She will need to be compliant with her medications, but she’ll be a functioning member of society again.”
