Amanda Bynes was released from rehab after received five months of treatment following a reported mental breakdown in Los Angeles. In the months prior, the former child star had gotten into more than a few incidents involving police. From hit and runs to alleged drug use, Amanda appeared to be spiraling out of control. Then, after moving from NYC to LA, she hit a new low, trespassing at an old folks home and lighting a stranger's driveway on fire.

From there, Amanda was placed on a 5150 hold and kept under the watch of doctors at UCLA and then at a separate rehab in Los Angeles.

Now, Amanda is once again a free woman and from the sound of things, she's doing quite well so far.

"I am doing very well," the star told In Touch Weekly, according to a December 5 report. "I'm doing great, it's been five days since I got out of rehab."

"After almost five months out of the spotlight, [Amanda] is settling back into a normal life with her family after leaving a treatment facility just before Thanksgiving," the site reported. "She was seen indulging in retail therapy on Dec. 1, browsing a local mall and picking up some new clothes from Forever 21."

"She looks great!" an eyewitness said. "She looks healthy and was very polite and friendly. She spent about $100."

A few days later, she was seen with her father, strolling around his Los Angeles neighborhood. "She was dressed in skinny jeans and a big shawl," says another onlooker. "She appeared to have lost a little weight but was smiling and looked happy. She was chatting away to her dad. They were deep in conversation."
