Amanda Bynes has left treatment center. She is now back home with her parents in Los Angeles. "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day," says the actress' lawyer Tamar Arminak in a statement to PEOPLE.

Upon her release, the former Nickelodeon star plans to continue her study. "She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design," the attorney explains. "She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line."

"Amanda and her entire family would like to thank everyone who's contacted them with good thoughts and wishes for Amanda's recovery," Arminak states. "Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She's very happy to reestablish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."

The former child actress, 27, was put on an involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold in July after setting a fire on a stranger's driveway near her family's home in Thousand Oaks, California. She was then placed in a long-term psychiatric treatment under a temporary conservatorship of her parents. She will remain under her mother's conservatorship while continuing her recovery.

Bynes is expected to return to court to stand trial for a DUI case stemming from an early morning accident in April 2012 when she allegedly scraped a patrol car. The criminal proceedings were previously put on hold after her lawyer declared "a 1368 PC [Penal Code] hearing to declare a doubt to mental competency."
