Amanda Bynes needs psychiatric treatment

sp_amanda_bynes_nt_130502_wblog Amanda Bynes’ parents Rick and Lyn believe that their daughter needs to be treated at psychiatric hospital. The actress got arrested on Friday (May 24) at her apartment in New York and charged with reckless endangerment, marijuana possession and attempted evidence tampering but her parents think that drug abuse is just the consequence of a much deeper problem.

A source close to the family said: ”Amanda has been clearly using drugs, yes, including marijuana, but that is just the symptom. The fact is Amanda suffers from severe mental health issues that she refuses to accept. Rick and Lynn want her to seek in-patient treatment at a psychiatric hospital so she can be properly treated.”

The source added: ”She even thought there were tracking devices in smoke detectors in her family home and would place sheets over them. Amanda also hears voices. It’s so sad for her family to watch her unravel like this.” However, the 27-year-old actress refuses to see a psychiatrist and claims there’s nothing wrong with her. ”Amanda hasn’t ever been to rehab or ever agreed to see a mental health professional. Her parents are absolutely powerless to do anything at this point,” the source said.
