Amanda Bynes was moved from the psychiatric wing of UCLA Medical Center to a rehab facility in Malibu, Calif., three weeks ago, TMZ and E! reported today.

After her detainment started in late July for allegedly starting a fire in the driveway of a Thousand Oaks, Calif., home, her psychiatric hold was extended indefinitely.

The “Easy A” actress, 27, was moved to The Canyon rehab center in Malibu less than a month ago at the advice of doctors, according to a statement from her parents’ lawyer, Tamar Arminak, obtained by E! and TMZ.

In the statement, Arminak said Bynes is making “great strides towards recovery” and that “she is getting specialized psych care, one on one treatment, not drug rehab.”

The Canyon is a private pay treatment program near the Malibu coastline that handles everything from detox to treatment to aftercare.

Arminak’s statement closed by saying, “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,” E! reports.

Arminak did not respond to multiple requests for comment from ABC News.
