A judge commended Redmond O'Neal on his "excellent progress" and graduated him from a drug rehab facility to a sober living environment after a Wednesday hearing in L.A.

O'Neal, the 25-year-old son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal, was also praised by L.A. Superior Court Judge Michael Tynan for the "positive" decisions he had made in the last few months.

"It's a big, big day for Redmond," his attorney, Richard Pintal, tells PEOPLE. "Redmond has come so far. He's really feeling great."

O'Neal's incarceration stems from a January 2008 drug arrest and a probation violation. He is scheduled for another progress report on June 22.
