Judge grants long-term hold for Amanda Bynes with treatment costing $3,500 per day
Question of the Day
Amanda Bynes is camped out at the UCLA Medical Center for at least 60 days after a judge granted experts a long-term hold for the troubled actress.
The worst case scenario is that Miss Bynes will be committed for a full year, before being released to her mother, who was granted partial conservatorship of her daughter earlier this month, TMZ reported.
The pricey treatment facility clocks in at $3,500 a day, TMZ said. Based off that figure, 60 days at the center would cost $210,000 and a full year would cost a whopping $1,277,500. Miss Bynes‘ insurance will only cover a small portion of the cost, TMZ reported.
The actress was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold in July for setting a fire in a residential driveway, and sources close to her have reported she suffers from schizophrenia.
TMZ reported that a yearlong stay at the UCLA facility is unlikely and Miss Bynes will probably be released in the next two months.
Her mother, Lynn, was granted permission to control decisions involving the health and finances of her daughter, and it will be in effect until Sept. 30, the Huffington Post reported.
